The staircase is a part of the house which is used often. Going to the second floor of the house would be impossible without passing by the stairs. Did you know that the first stairs were made of wood trunks that were put together for the purpose of arriving at the top of the mountains and to ease the difficulty of climbing terrains and valleys? The making of the stairs also revealed the talent of those who made them. Even though the main purpose of the stair case is only to bridge the first floor to the second floor, we mustn’t neglect that design is always possible in whatever part of the house. Maybe you haven’t really thought of that idea right? How exactly can you design the staircase? Use your imagination! There are many ways in which you can put art to your staircase.
