Nowhere is this trend more evident than in the stairparts market where metal and glass balustrading is no longer the ideal choice for customers demanding a more homely touch to their staircase.
There are many well known reasons for the popularity of wood in interiors. It has various unique qualities and benefits over other materials commonly used in the home. The first and most obvious of these is its green credentials, which have become an increasingly important factor for developers in recent years. Wood is sustainable, renewable and in some cases, actually a carbon positive resource.
Often the most important factor for potential homebuyers to consider is what it will be like to live with. Wood is a comfortable and tactile material which is particularly important in choosing stairparts such as handrails. Combine this with its natural beauty, durability and environmental appeal, and it is easy to understand why it has been the favoured material in the home for centuries.
Despite this, the perception of many developers in recent years has been that a modern and stylish interior means metal or glass finishes. When, in fact many homeowners find these materials too cold, clinical and commercial in appearance.
However, a historical lack of innovation in the stairparts industry has limited the choice of modern Timber designs available. The options have been either outdated, traditional turned spindles or plain stop chamfered designs which many developers specify despite their unimaginative style.
The solution therefore is for wooden stairparts manufacturers to innovate and create something in timber with greater design appeal than the metal or glass offerings, plus all of the added benefits of wood as a material.
The most prominent example of this has to be id modern stairparts which were designed by Clive Durose specifically to fill this gap in the market. The new id modern stairparts range, which is unlike any other wooden stairparts currently available in the stairparts market, is driving the timber stairparts revival amongst homebuyers.
Now, developers can cater for the needs of customers both in terms of design and choice of material. id modern stairparts feature three cutting edge spindle designs:- ez, flo and vu, which create stunning visual effects thanks to their interesting modern shapes, combined with clever features like the innovative safe-grip handrail and multi newel system.
