|If you have a staircase in your home, it is the
first thing that visitors see when they open your door and step in.
Welcome them in style by redoing your old staircase. You will make a
splash…and you will increase the resale value of your home at the
same time. Your staircase is the focal point in your home so remodel
it with iron stair parts.
When you want to improve your home to increase its value, simple ideas are best. You do not want to start a hugely expensive, complicated project: You want to keep it simple. A stair part remodeling project that gives the most bang for your buck is replacing the wooden stair parts with iron balusters. As remodels go, re-doing the staircase is a win-win – it is both easy to do and adds big value to your home. Because you will not have to remove the newel posts and handrails, it will not be a difficult job, and because iron balusters are relatively inexpensive, you will not be out significant amounts of cash.
How Expensive are Stair Parts?
Upgrading your staircase from wood to iron balusters can change an
outmoded, worn-out staircase to a work of beautiful, permanent art.
Think of the staircase as a piece of furniture that is not going to
wear out or be removed from the house when you leave, then pick out
the best balusters that you can afford. It is the focal point of
your home, so make it count. While you don’t have to spend a lot of
money, you do need to spend some time picking out balusters that
match your home and current decorating theme.
Wood or Iron Stair Parts?
Whichever baluster you decide on, upgrading from wood to metal will increase the value of your home along with increasing the beauty of your staircase. Spend some time thinking about what you want, and don’t buy the very first baluster you see. Take time to choose the right baluster for your staircase, and watch visitors – and potential buyers – ooh and ah over your choice of stair parts.
