Spiral Staircase Benefits & Advantages

An Attractive and Elegant Feature

Staircases are one of the most versatile pieces of your home’s structure. In some spaces, they are the classical and elegant showpiece of a grand entrance hall. In others, they are simply a required element in the home that blend into the rest of the house.

No matter how you incorporate your staircase’s design, you want it to enhance your home. There are plenty of benefits to installing a spiral stair over other staircase designs. We’ve pulled out our top 5 reasons that a spiral staircase is the element that you need to complete your home.


1. Space

The most common reason homeowners choose a spiral stair is that they have strict space restrictions. With homes getting smaller, people are looking to maximize every bit of square footage they can.

Spiral staircases have a small footprint thanks to the spiral design itself. Because it builds on top of itself, your steps won’t extend out past the width, or diameter, of your staircase. You can easily keep your stair tucked into a corner of your home to maximize the rest of your space.

Salter Spiral Stair doesn’t sacrifice safety for our space saving stairs. They feature full steps like those you would find on a traditional staircase, but arranged in a way that allows you to the make the most of your home.


2. Access

A lot of homeowners let go of extra square footage because it’s just too hard to get to. Whether it’s because a traditional staircase can’t fit or a ladder isn’t an ideal solution, back bedrooms and attics can be difficult to access and end up being forgotten.

Spiral stairs give you flexibility when it comes to your access points. They can fit into tighter spaces than a traditional stair, but they can also be maneuvered to reach many different access points. The custom rotation makes it possible for you to control the entry and exit points of your spiral staircase.

Another aspect your spiral stair’s flexibility of access is where you plan to install it. One popular option is through a hole in the floor resulting in almost no interruption to your floor plan. Another option is at the face of your loft or deck for a more traditional approach. You can order matching railing for both options for a cohesive home design.


3. Materials & Designs

Your spiral stair can be completely customized to meet your vision for your space. Everything can be customized from your stair frame to the individual steps and spindles.

Our spiral stairs are shipped in kit form, meaning that all pieces are broken down and easily assembled in your home. The installation process takes two average homeowners 4-6 hours to complete. This DIY style saves the homeowner the cost of hiring a contractor.

Your spiral stair can add lots of value to your home. Our lifetime warranty on metal fabrication means you won’t have to worry about costly upkeep of your spiral stairs and the small footprint of a spiral stairs means you have more usable square footage. These one of a kind structural and design elements are a unique selling point for your home.

5. Versatility

Because of the distinct design of spiral stair, you may not initially see the versatility. However, Salter Spiral Stair provides versatile stairs that go far beyond your design options. Whatever your need is, you can mold your spiral stair design to meet it.

This benefit can be seen in all of the other reasons we listed above. Your spiral stair is versatile enough to be installed in a variety of places and change your access point for a brand new home layout. A popular option is a hole in the floor stair. This is exactly what it sounds like, a stair is placed in a hole in the floor to lead down to a lower level of the building. We design the stairs with well enclosures, both square and round, to ensure the safety of our customers and those using the stair.

You can also use your stair, much like a traditional stair, to reach a higher level of the home. In this case, your stair has the flexibility to be a showcase piece in your home that also functions as a necessary means of access.

The design options allow you create a beautiful stair that you would be proud to show off. On the same note, your spiral stair can easily be tucked into a corner to help you maximize the space of your home. The last versatile option is whether your stair is indoors or outdoors.

All of these benefits should apply to your outdoor space as well. While not all of our stairs are made for outdoor use, we do offer the previously mentioned finishes to ensure your stair meets your expectations.
