The Hardware to Choose
Classic two-story homes are never seen without a simple or grand staircase to allow transportation from one floor to another. Indeed, this structure has been a source of pride among homeowners since these stairs have become a focal point for art and architecture. The hardware of every staircase is considered carefully to suit the kind of architectural design you would want to appear in your staircase later.
The stair hardware will depend on the size of the house, the allowable cost and of course the preference of the owner. Although most homeowners would prefer to remain traditional and stick to wooden stairways, more and more architects are learning to convince their clients to use stainless steel for the stairways.

Moreover, it is definitely resistant to termite so you will not have problems regarding termites infesting your homes. In addition, this type of material is much cheaper so it is definitely cost-effective.
