You will also have to plan about the staining and maintenance of the log staircase like you will have to for your log home. You can make use of the sand grit so that the stairs do not end up being slippery and uncomfortable. A staircase - if perfectly decided on - indeed becomes a real show piece item of a beautiful log home and therefore is sort of a necessity.
'In stairwells, remove the balustrades and fill the gap with book shelves. You can also use landings or even half landings (where stairs turn) to house a condensed work station or mini library,' says architect Mark Dyson. A compact office can be hidden in a cupboard, so it's instantly tidied away at the end of the day. A window ledge can be widened to create a cosy seat. Spiral stairs can be a great space saver, as can alternate-tread ones that allow staircases to rise at a steeper angle.
If your budget won't stretch to a whole new staircase, there are some simple updates you can do that are quicker and cheaper. Consider removing the understairs cupboard to give a more open-plan feel. Replace solid risers with glass to allow light to filter through to the space below. Swap solid balustrades or dated spindles for a more modern equivalent. Sheet glass creates a minimal look and allows light to flow more freely. Or choose a beautiful wooden balustrade for timeless style.
