Never a fan of rounded landing steps, taking up too much space in a room. Now definitely not a fan. I'm no clutz but managed to step off one sideways and tore a foot ligament. Just saying, in my mind now, potential danger of injury.

Ouch, seliff! I never thought of that! It is very pretty, though.

My sister lives in Florida and barely has a step up to her home. Whenever I say something about pain, she blames it on our stairs. When she comes here, she freaks out because of a bad leg from a car wreck when she was young, so I don't blame her for not liking stairs. I love our stairs, and am glad we have two floors. I do see a stairlift chair in the future, but that will be easier and cheaper than moving. These stairs are all beautiful. Can't decide which is my favorite.
