9. Floating pieces

Floating staircases are common these days with fashionable homes and young interior designers.

Wood has always been the first choice of interior decor experts while adding elegance to the interior design. And in the case of staircases, the story is no different. Installing this staircase, which looks like many blocks of wood arranged in a spiralling fashion, will add tinge of sturdiness and historic appeal to your home. The rustic and traditional look is perfect for a home that prides itself for its traditional design on the exterior.


7. Two in one

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you could bring the park inside your home for your kids? Has it never bothered you that your kids could not visit the park to play just because it was raining outside? If these thoughts have struck your mind ever before, then let us cheer you up. The two-in-one staircase has a slide attached to it. Now, your kids can enjoy climbing up and sliding down right inside your home. The spiral design takes fun at a different level too.


6. Bookworm’s paradise

Stairs are not the only things for climbing higher. Books also help to do the same. Just think, how high you will reach if books and stairs can join hands. The following staircase design actually utilises the space left empty by many staircases to store books. The books are not only meant to give strength to the staircase design, but can also be kept for display in a library this manner. This gives staircase a totally different meaning for book-lovers.


5. Ribbons

The ribbon design of staircases is quite minimalist in nature and along with the combination of two extreme colours ­– black and white, it adds a touch of modernity in the staircase design. No wonder the angles are not too smooth and the people climbing it can be prone to accidental falls. Yet, with its unique design and ability to gel well with the interiors, this staircase design will make your home look quite futuristic. The steps have to be quite smooth and not slippery.


4. Spiral

If you are still thinking about the wooden staircase that we showed you earlier, then let us show you a better design. Wood makes staircases look bulky and traditional. However, this staircase design is quite futuristic and is very graceful. The spiral makes the staircase gain elegance and the railing on just one side and the other side being free, gives the stairs a minimalist look. It may still look a bit bulky but it is quite authentic in its looks.


3. Stairs with shelves

This is one of the designs with benefits. If you need some extra storage space, then this staircase design is best for you. The space underneath the staircase can help you to store additional items in the house and manage space efficiently. If you are in dearth of items to keep under the stairs, then you can use the space as bookshelf too. This staircase not only is creative in looks but also gives you the option of creating space in your interiors.


2. Floating concrete

Let’s have something as sturdy as the Hulk. How will it feel to see concrete blocks floating in the air? Yes, that is what this staircase design is all about. Although concrete is quite strong, yet using wood or metal may be a better option as they are light in weight. But suppose your neighbours visit you. Floating blocks of concrete will attract more eyes and raised eyebrows than floating pieces of wood or metal. Try it out! Who knows you may define the style segment of your town?
