The spiral stairs provide unique access between this home's second floor wood deck and the patio below. The patio is new stamped and dyed concrete.
In order to maximize outdoors space, a smaller footprint was needed. The spiral stair links the deck and patio with a compact footprint . It also allows natural circulation between the two. Because the homeowners spend more time cooking, eating, sitting, and relaxing, maximizing floor space is critical. As far as efficiency goes, a spiral staircase with metal handrail offers a secure solution.
Additionally, a beautiful LED lighting system on the treads lights each step. It inspires confidence and beauty at any time of night. In order to match, the owner selected wood treads for the spiral in the same material as the deck. Even more, should any of these Trex boards show signs of wear, replacing a board or a whole tread is easy with this system. The metal railing is powder coated with a classic black finish. Durable finishes are required for the outdoors, and powder coating is industry standard as a first line of defense for metal coatings.
A steel band winds around the spiral at the corner of each tread. Thus following the line of the handrail above, it gives the stairs a distinct spiral look. As it turns out, it is a simple but effective design feature that highlights the natural helix.
