Staircases in granite
In residential buildings, granite is used to make unique design features, such as cornices, windowsills and doorsteps, as well as for surfaces in communal areas and walkways such as entrance halls, stairways, landings and apartment block flooring.
This choice is down to the material: whether for public or private use, stairs and landings are continuously trodden on and walked over and granite remains the top performer out of all quality materials of indisputable beauty, for its ability to withstand wear and tear, stay clean and maintain high levels of resistance.
In fact, stairs, especially in public places such as schools, hospitals, stations, etc., are made from granite as it does not require frequent maintenance and does not get ruined over time, despite heavy use. A number of different finishes are also available.
With regard to finishes, a rough, non-slip surface is obviously preferable for outdoor granite staircases, meaning a cleft or flamed finish.
For staircases inside the home, such as stairs connecting two different floors, surface-ground and polished finishes are the preferred option.
As with all other natural stone, granite suits classic and traditional rooms perfectly, although it can also work really well in more modern interiors.
You don't have to choose one of the more common granites that are widely used just because they cost less: there are many types of colours and shades available that can make the rooms of your home unique and captivating.
