When we design and build houses with more than one floor, the ladder becomes an important item in the project, as it will guarantee mobility inside the house. Whether wooden stairs, metal or any other material, in addition to adding beauty and style to the decor, they must be installed with their functionality in mind, so that they can help facilitate circulation around the home.
There are two factors that are fundamental for choosing the ideal ladder: the shape it will have and the raw material that will be used in its construction. The first will depend on the space available for the installation of the ladder and the function it will have in that environment. The raw material must be chosen keeping in mind the style of decoration that the house will have. You should also think about which room in the house it will be installed.
Houses with wooden stairs
Wood is an element often used in the decoration projects that we see around. This is because the material brings style and elegance to the environment where it is inserted, whether in decoration elements or as part of the built-up area. When the material is used in stairs, for example, it still brings an imposing appearance to the room where it is installed.

Wooden stairs can have different shapes and can be more modern or more rustic and traditional. Furthermore, it is very interesting when it is used in combination and together with other materials, such as iron and glass. In addition, there is a variety of wood styles that allow the owner of the house where the stairs will be installed to choose the type that best suits them and that best matches the decor.

Wooden stairs can help a lot in creating more rustic environments. The wood can have different colors, different textures and more than one finish, being able to adapt to the most different styles.
In addition, the material by itself gives a more rustic look to an environment, whether it’s a straighter staircase or a snail-shaped staircase. It’s also really cool when this style is used in more modern rooms, because this contrast can be really cool! See some ideas below.
