The grand staircase plays an important role in the first impression of a building. The bigger the staircase, the more glamorous and regal a property will look. The White House is renowned for its grand staircase, which is primarily used for the Presidential Entrance March. Another notable staircase is the grand staircase on the RMS Titanic. It’s one of the most recognisable features of the sunken liner, frequently recreated in film and art. But why is it that we only see these beautiful architectural delights in older buildings, not new ones?
