Inspiration post: staircases

July 6th, 2015 by Harry

If everyone in your household is over 10 years old or your kids have flown the nest, why not try some nifty tricks with your staircase? Removing the banisters from your staircase creates instant space to a crammed hallway and will make it look ten years younger too. Or how about considering a suspended staircase?

Here are a few ideas that might inspire you to do something a little different…

No banisters

This could be a little dangerous if you have kids in the house, but given the all-clear this is a fantastic way of opening up your hallway and giving yourself a little more space.  I love the exposed brick wall which adds to the contemporary feel.

Industrial

This look works well in a big open space like a loft or warehouse. This particular staircase was designed by Carlo Scarpa and perfectly blends the industrial with the modern.

Suspended staircase

 This massively stylish NY apartment is accessorised to perfection. With splashes of colour and the exposed brick wall, this hanging staircase doesn’t look too unusual in such a unique environment.

Floating staircase

For a touch of the exotic consider a floating staircase. This look will go well in a Scandi-inspired interior. The clean lines make the space look modern and the soft lighting makes sure the decor is still warm and inviting.
