Uninspired to Inspired

Posted on Thursday, November 15th, 2018.

The existing staircase in this Cary home was utilitarian and plain. It provided a way to get from the first floor to the second but did not do much to inspire or add to the décor. When the homeowners came to Wood Wise for help with updating their home, it was decided the staircase needed a facelift, too.


The redesign started with replacing the old carpet with hardwood treads and risers to match the new hardwoods in the living room. Stylish black metal balusters replace the old Colonial-style wooden ones. The new handrail and newel posts are now a good-looking design in keeping with the improved updates throughout the house.
