Decorate YOUR Home
Happy National Decorating Month! Instead of worrying about paint swatches and tile samples, we invite you to think big in April … and redecorate your home’s interior entrance area with a new stair system!
“Nothing makes a more powerful impact when stepping inside a home than the staircase,” says Beth Galigher with L.J. Smith. “Whether it’s wide and sweeping, or narrow and elegant, a staircase ‘decorates’ your home and makes the first impression on your visitors. It’s also one of the most frequently used parts of your house --- so dress it up!”
Galigher recommends people with older homes that need a “punch in the decorative arm” look at replacing a worn-out stairway with a new Linear Collection stair system. The popular contemporary stair system includes a variety of metal newels, marine-grade stainless steel cable along with brushed stainless steel tube for a sleek stairway appearance.
“When combined with Red Oak or Hard Maple handrails, homeowners get a wonderful blend of metal and wood in this stair system,” says Galigher. “Overall, this is a sleek-looking stair system that truly adds to the style of a home.”
For those homeowners wishing to add a different look of metal, L.J. Smith offers metal panel systems in the Linear Collection. Pre-assembled for speed of installation, the Linear Metal Panel System provides the newest look in modern stairway design.
“This stairway system boasts a ‘welded’ look that complements most modern or urban decors,” says Galigher. “It’s just as fitting for accessing a loft area in a townhouse as it would be as an eye-catching stairway system in a contemporary home.”
The Metal Panel System comes with Low Sheen Black as a standard finish. Additional powder-coated and Pantone® paint colors can be ordered so that the rail system complements the home interior. Handrail options come in Red Oak and Hard Maple to create a clean, refined look for the stair system. For more details, click HERE.
