Advantages of Using Solid Timber for Staircases

09 March 2022

The stairs in your home take a lot of abuse, and it is important to use materials that can withstand wear and tear. That is why we recommend solid hardwood as your flooring choice for your stairs. Here are some other reasons why we think this is the best option if you are doing a renovation or new construction that involves winding or straight stairs.

Beauty and Value

Hardwoods add both beauty and value to your home. They are an investment because of the unique warmth that they give the home and their artistic grain patterns. Using hardwoods on stairs adds a similar value to the home as when it is used as flooring. Also, you can make sure that the wood on your stairs and your floor Is a perfect match. It looks like you went the extra mile to create a custom look that matches the architectural style of your home, and this can add value when it is time to sell your home.

Durability and Easy Maintenance

Hardwood flooring and stair treads are durable and can last for many years. They are easy to maintain, and often only need a quick damp mop to retain their shine. The best part is when they do begin to show their wear, which can be decades down the road, all you have to do is resurface the finish instead of replacing them entirely. Many hardwoods will last for decades without changing colour or texture.

Variety of Colours and Species

You have a wide range of choices when it comes to the look that you want to achieve. You can choose from different species, and you can choose from a range of finishes. Many prefer the deep, reddish wood tones of Marri wood, spotted gum, or jarrah. If you prefer lighter woods, blackbutt is a popular choice. Australian oak also gives the room an elegant feel and warmth that is unmatched.

Placing hardwood on your stairs is an investment that you know will last for decades when properly maintained. Natural wood adds a cozy and inviting feel that synthetic materials cannot match. These are only a few of the reasons why you should consider Australian hardwood for your next flooring or stair project.
