Consider this your motivation to reach new style heights.
Staircases are the spine of the home. Not only do they bridge together the rooms and spirit of a space, they’re often the first thing that greets guests at the entryway. With such an important and functional purpose, staircases deserve to be just as polished and well decorated as the rest of the home.
Staircases do more than connect levels in your home; their visual presence is an architectural statement. This utilitarian part of the home can become the most show-stopping piece to an interior design, using imagination and calculation.
Whether you’re anticipating a remodel in your future and need some beautiful stair design ideas for your house or you simply love to admire architectural stunners, these steps will lead you there.
LIGHT UP THE ROOM
Designed to barely intrude on the space in the living room, it marks the divide between seating and dining areas with room for the table under the slope. Follow this room’s example and use wood with a gorgeous grain that will be brought to the fore when the light casts patterns on your floor.
LAYER THE LIGHTING
This stunning hallway and stairs are lit with wall lights, LED strips and inset floor-level lights, maximizing both practical and atmospheric lighting features to dramatic effect.
With alternating treads, this stair design offers a shorter horizontal span than traditional stairs. To put it simply, they offer the maximized space that a ladder would with a forward-facing descent.
MINI ART GALLERY
Sometimes less really is more, and a clutter-free under stairs area needn’t be seen as wasted space. Add in your favorite pieces of art and some comfy seating to create your very own gallery.
PIECE OF ART
This one looks more like a piece of art than a staircase. The staircase complements the period interior beautifully! The substrate of the staircase was made from solid oak with white wash finish, giving it a clean, fresh Scandinavian look.
CLIMB THE TREE
This staircase links four stories at the center of a listed home, and gives the impression of growing organically through the building. Half landings add to the notion of tree branches.
The slightly changing colors are beautiful and useful to distinguish which tread to put your foot on next. Dark theme made beautiful with the addition of smart lighting along the way.
Although ancient, the winding stairs in this Scottish castle have a strong minimalist presence. Just three materials are involved which are timeworn stone, a rope handrail and lime-washed walls, but the overall result is rich nonetheless.
CREATE THE VIEW
Made from glass, this staircase lets light from above penetrate the stairwell from top to bottom of the house, while the slim handrail provides support without trespassing on the overall lightness.
Though obviously serving a very important functional purpose, staircases have the potential to elevate an entire house. So much more than a means to get from point A to point B, stairs really can be the main event.
