Confined homes with lots of walls and corners feels small and restricted. Having an open floor plan allows the space to reflect an airy feeling with lots of light and sophisticated design style.
With an open floor plan, you can see various angles and rooms of the house from any given point. With a family, being able to see each room in one spot is essential. It is also a benefit if you do a lot of entertaining. Your guests will remain connected with one another due to the open flow from one room to the next.
Removing walls is one way to plan for an open look, but it is not the only way. Staircases can often become problematic where more space is concerned. Typical staircases require an ample amount of floor, wall, and ceiling space in order to be installed correctly and to be completely functional.
Since rebuilding space already requires a lot of legwork, you might want to consider relocating your existing staircase. As long as the stairs and structure are sound, you can find a new spot for the stairs so that they do not inhibit the open flow feeling you are trying to achieve.
There are many benefits to moving a staircase and some of those include:
- Allowing for additional room space
- Turning an already unusable spot into a usable one
- Create a new opening on the second level for a more functional space on another floor
In order to successfully move a staircase, you first must ensure the structure is in good condition and that the new proposed space is suitable. This should be handled by a professional like Acadia Stairs. If you need assistance with moving a staircase, contact us today.
