The growing popularity of stair kits
Spiral staircase kits have become increasingly popular over the years as housing floorplans have evolved. As recently as the 1960s and into the 1970s, homes were largely compartmentalized into living areas, eating areas, recreation areas and so forth. By the 1980s, homes were becoming more open concept – half walls between rooms and wall cut outs into the kitchen were becoming more popular. Today, many modern homes are truly open concept with one area flowing seamlessly into the next.
The open concept trend has given rise to increased popularity of the spiral staircase, as less and less homeowners are looking for a conventional staircase that is hidden away behind a wall, but rather they are more frequently using spiral staircases as functional works of art.
Spiral staircases are good choices for indoor applications such as access to a loft or basement as well as for outdoor application such as for decks.
