They really add a small, hard to pin down bit of class. I support their use broadly.
These little dust corners were a great addition to my old wooden staircase! They really dress it up and work quite well (I have cats-- makes vacuuming a breeze/ don't have to scrub dust out of the tight corners anymore). Installation was quite simple (the provided nail set is essential). Couldn't be happier and would definitely recommend!
We love these. After 6 years, they look as good as new. (Polished brass.) It's an added touch that every visitor has complimented. Worth the price and the effort of installation.
I bought my first set of these dust corners about 8 years ago when we first purchased our home. Because the home was older, I thought it would add a little flavor to the look of the stairs. It did more than that! I received so many compliments on just that little touch that I am now buying my second set. The first ones are a little old now and could use replacing. I recommend these for any home, old or new.
