Forget about sculptures and art, let your staircase take centre stage in your home.

If you’re building a home with more than one floor, then you’re going to need a staircase. Don’t take the mundane route and opt for a boring and basic design.

Your stairs do more than provide a route, they also add to your home’s aesthetics. If you’re in the market for a staircase, these bold ones might fit your fancy..

Angled

Straight and angled stairs are the most common design found in homes. Homeowners opt for these simple designs because they fit the purpose of travelling up and down without the inconvenience of wasted space and restrictions. You can level up this mundane style by dressing up the stairway using colours, design, and motifs.

Spiral

Spiral staircases have a certain Victorian or industrial appeal to them! This style of stairs gives your home an appealing aesthetic and works well in tight spaces but isn’t very convenient when you’re moving large objects up and down your home.

Geometric

We often overlook the design of staircases because we only think of them as having only one function. Designs that combine the function of stairs and display or art, for example, work splendidly.

Nook or Storage

Staircases often leave us with loads of unutilised space, and to think Harry Potter turned his into an entire living space, complete with its own address! It’s time we turned that negative space into something more useful, and what better than storage because, when is storage ever enough?

Levitating

Want a home that makes a lasting impression? Consider floating staircases – they bring class and modern appeal, and are also incredibly Instagram worthy! Floating stairs are steps that are attached to one side of the wall or straight to your ceiling, giving the illusion of levitation.
