You can find the information you are looking for in a couple of different ways depending on how you are using Houzz. If you are on the app, tap on the photo. If you are using a computer, click the green "more info" link. Either way you should see a link to a vendor or store. Follow that link for more information.

Here's a search to start with:
http://www.houzz.com/photos/bath/%22custom-tub%22-
and
http://www.houzz.com/%22unusual-tub%22

You could use a 'regular' tub and do special things with it :)

Hi Christine, I hope you're still checking on this thread. I think you could make a quick visual improvement just by changing the green on the stairs and the wall under the stairs. You could go white to match the chair rail/baseboard, or (my suggestion) a darker yellow/tan than what's on the walls, your choice about whether to leave the chair rail white or not. If you take out the visual effect of watching that green zig-zag its way up the stairs, you'll have a nicer-looking stairwell while you figure out what to do about the carpet and the rest of the colors. It's a job you could do in an afternoon and it would make a big immediate difference.

To go back to the big question:

Yes. :) they are currently very tacky/ugly.

Could be wayyyyy better. Painting would help a lot.

Overall stair layout could be greatly improved.

New balustrade would make a huge difference as well.

Carpet is also way ugly - wood is much better.

Floor tones don't need to match as long as you want people to notice the stairs. If the stairs are great, then make them contrast and show it!

Same with rails, if you don't want people to see it. Make them blend. If it is a focal point, give it a highlight so it is noticed.


Attached are some stairs we have recently designed and made. Good luck on your refresh!

I sail and stainless is so expensive. Unistrut makes a lot of products for building rails without needing a welder but I think their products are expensive and also not stainless. I am looking for myself because I have the same project next year. I think a kit made for the stairs would probably end up less expensive and meet code than trying to buy the parts you need and then paying extra for industrial or boat quality. I am looking forward to what you come up with.

I'd recommend going for the metal with wood steps look, and maybe a runner if you're concerned about damage to steps. Good luck! :)

Pillows for a balustrade and foam for the treads : )

Metal is very strong... However hardwoods are also extremely strong. The balusters and or "rails" on the old one could have been made out of softwoods or a cheap way of installation that doesn't allow for the 50lb + load.

Whatever materials you use, it sounds like the quality of the fabrication and installation might be the thing to focus on.

@ MB Builders, Yes please attach a floorplan. I would be happy to help you design a curved stair. Five feet width does not allow for very much of a curve. 3' is the absolute minimum on stair width - on your curved it may need to be wider to allow for a walkline to fit code as well.

You can see our work on our houzz page or website. We build custom curved and wood stairs in our Seattle shop, and can installed them anywhere in the US.

@ Scott Barnes,

I would be happy to work up an estimate for you for a wood spiral stair with a slide outside of the houzz forum.
You can get in touch with us from our Houzz site or www.NKwoodworking.com

We build custom wood staircases at our Seattle shop, and then can truck them to install anywhere in the states. I started the company around wooden boat building, so slide would be easy for us.

Attached is some photos of our stair work.

Oh Monica, that is just so much more impressive than the straight-on stairs. And what a beautiful newel post! Looks so much more substantial.
