Concrete is widely used in buildings, homes and architecture, as well as in staircases, because of its durability and affordability. Most people prefer to use concrete because it lasts longer than any other medium used in construction and can be patterned into any shape or design that the owner desires, to compliment the overall “look” of their home.
Staircases, sometimes taken for granted, are one of the most important elements of any building. Generally, the different types of concrete staircases are precast, poured concrete, earth-supported or suspended, but, irrespective of the type of concrete stair construction utilized, the shape and style of the stairs and staircases always adds elegance and sophistication to the home.
From modern and simple to imposing and sophisticated, manufacturers, architects and designers are inventing unique ways to bridge vertical distances. Connecting two or more floors, staircases can be built and finished with different types of materials. Often placed in the center of the house, it is important to recognize the created image as an element with its own presence, yet still part of the decor.
