Home Ideas – Designer Staircases
Whilst you should rightly focus the majority of your decorating ideas on specific rooms, don’t forget the connecting spaces.
It’s easy to forget the opportunities that the connecting spaces in your home can present to show off great interior design ideas. The hallway, the landing, the corridors between rooms are all great opportunities to complement your interior design or set up a theme that introduces a room. If you’ve ever visited the Grand Designs Live show, you’ll have experienced this already through their entrance tunnel – the corridor acts to introduce the theme, build anticipation before the ‘reveal’ as you finally enter the main hall.
This collection of great staircase ideas showcases what can be achieved with designer stairs, bannisters and balustrades and features a fabulous mix, from contemporary glass and chrome stairs to classic carpeted stairs and sculpted timber bannisters.
This open plan apartment continues the space and light theme by utilising glass panels and partially painting the underside of the flight white to give the impression of a floating staircase.
This beautiful spiral staircase, uses natural curves and simple timber framing combined with delicate ironwork balusters. The light carpet helps to provide contrast to the parquet flooring and makes a feature out of the banister.
This cosy room turns the stair case into a storage feature by fully carpeting it to cover up, adding to the feel of solidity and then using the individual flights as shelves.
