Modern homes are all about sophistication and style, a beautiful staircase plays an essential role in enhancing the exquisiteness of the house.
A book staircase will lead you into a different storey as well as lead you forward in the realm of knowledge. Not necessary, there are actually no books stored beneath the footsteps! It’s a painting of books on the stairwell. Now that makes sense, else the books would have a lot of dust sitting on them. Personally, it is not a good idea to step on books.
The picture painted on the front face of the stair can bear your favorite books. Each step could bear paintings of books authored by a different writer. You can paint several combinations on your stairs.
Colorful staircase design
This design has the maximum room for creativity, there are hundreds of things that you can do to distinguish your staircase by painting it. The footstep and the front face of the stair may be painted differently, the step may be painted with a darker color and the front face with a lighter paint.
Using multiple colors is also a good option, horizontal stripes can run down from the top of the staircase to the end of it. These stripes could be in a variety of patterns, like a repetition of rainbow colors. Don’t forget the handrail, prefer to paint that in a single color, a bright one or simply black.
Spiral glass staircase
A staircase made of glass would be enchanting and trendy at the same time. You must be aware of the varying strengths of the tempered glass. Which are strong enough to bear hundreds of kilograms. A spiral glass staircase will definitely add to the modern look of your house. This trend is fast growing, especially in the ultra modern areas.
They will not only add to the sophistication but will also match any décor. The staircase bearing glass will bring more light into your room. It’s a pleasing change from the normal straight-line architecture, spiral twist will intensify the overall appeal of your house.
The Concorde staircase
Will it be a supersonic flight of stairs? Well it all depends on your imagination. The design of this self-bearing staircase is simply out of the world. The structure of this stylish staircase resembles a vertebral column of a gigantic animal, probably one of those creatures that exist no more. Footsteps are fixed on the central support structure of the stairwell. Each step is bolted neatly to the center and the bolts are purposely left uncovered to give it a rustic look.
The handrail is attached to the wall and the other side is left open. The self bearing Concorde stair case has been designed by Marretti. It is available in a range of shades and colors to suit your décor.
A simple idea too has the potential to transform the appearance of an object. Designer Sarah Moore just applied it to a staircase and the result was stunning enough to catch the attention of many. She used wallpaper to highlight the risers of a staircase.
A coat of clear varnish was applied over it, so that they don’t get dirty. The brilliance of the idea is that you can keep changing it every summer. With that, the appearance of your room and the surrounding areas will change too. This is one thing that you can DIY at ease.
A staircase is an integral part of every building, changing the design of it can add to the sophistication of the entire place.
