Interior Concrete Stairs
Although stairs made up of materials like wood and aluminum are becoming popular, a concrete staircase is known for its durability. It can be painted, tiled, or carpeted. When designed correctly, concrete stairs are not only functional but can also add aesthetic value to the overall design of the buildings. The traditional way of constructing these staircases is ‘on site’. Depending upon the design plan, workers will first construct the staircase, fit the railings, and then add the final finishing. However, precast concrete stairs are also constructed these days. They are poured and finished ‘off site’ and later transported and installed. But those constructed on site are said to be much durable. Precast stairs are also known as prefab stairs. Once the construction is over, one can add a nice surface texture to them. When it comes to finishing the staircase, your options are plenty. Painting it is the first alternative that you can think of after its construction. Another idea is installing tiles on them. You can consider various flooring patterns such as ceramic, mosaic, marble, or granite.
You can also add carpeting and have the staircase look fabulous within a tighter budget. However, painting is the most inexpensive option, provided you use premium-quality paint and the right colors. Once the concrete stairs are ready, you can explore your options while designing them. You can choose from a wide variety of marble, tiles, carpets, or paints.
