On the Job with C: Classic Staircase

I was recently working with a real estate agent who was evaluating a home for the market.  He added in several thousands for granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and then mentioned adding markup for the staircase being “upgraded to iron”.  While I love a great iron staircase, it doesn’t work in every home.  I many cases I don’t think it works at all.  Some of the best classic homes use wood baulsters and look absolutely fabulous.

Here is some of the inspiration photos we are using for a client’s new home.  They want a classic New England style home with a grand entrance.  Despite the fact the builder usually puts in iron staircases, such a material wouldn’t work in this style of home.

Classic and fresh.  I love it.
