Most wooden stairways are overlooked - or taken for granted as carpeted connections between floors. It would be a waste of their abilities. Stairways are more than just functional features; they can also be resurrected to reclaim their rightful place as the main attraction of a building.
Stairways are generally thought of as unrestorable because they have odd curves and tiny corners: they are difficult and time-consuming to restore.
• Isn't that painful? Yes. It is necessary to remove old coats of paint and varnish before preparing for sanding and finishing.
• Does it require a lot of labour? There are small segments of wood that require handwork.
You have two basic options if you decide to proceed:
• The treads and risers are sanded and coated outside with a carpet covering the middle area. Over the years, the sides of the treads and risers of many stairs have been treated differently than their centres, making this the only option left. A lack of sanding will result in the appearance remaining two-toned.
• The treads and risers were sanded and coated, leaving the wood exposed.To create a dramatic appearance, we can paint the treads white and leave the risers unfinished to reveal the wood's natural grain.
