A glass in groove maple railing system helps maintain an open concept space in the loft area. On the stair area, this was transitioned into a maple railing with black metal spindles.

The Staircase was a focal point in the space with the entrance right off the side of it. We steamed the wood to bring up the vibrance of the reclaimed stairs and painted a white opposing runner either side of the wood. rowing ores as railings and some beautiful bead board and paneling.

We maximized storage with custom built in millwork throughout. Probably the most eye catching example of this is the bookcase turn ship ladder stair that leads to the mezzanine above. © Devon Banks
A staircase has an integral function in any multi-level home, but it can also help define the style of your home, serve as a focal point, and turn your entryway into a grand entrance. Staircases can be big projects, so it’s important that your design suits your needs and lifestyle. When deciding on a balustrade, railing and materials, take into account durability, cost, and any building regulations, too. Read on for more quick tips to consider while browsing staircase designs on Houzz.

What type of staircase works best for me?


The first consideration when planning a staircase design is space. A double-sided staircase, for instance, will only work in a large area; whereas an L-shaped staircase or straight staircase are more compact options. The next step in the stair design is deciding on a style. Elliptical or curved stairs offer elegance, while spiral stairs can appear more urban. If you want a contemporary design, floating stairs are a great way to circulate light.

What balustrade and handrail options are available?


Balustrades and handrails are important for safety but also allow you to get creative with your stair design. Many staircases are built up against a wall – if that’s the case, the wall itself can act as a balustrade; it will just need an attached handrail. Glass balustrades are great if you want to show off your staircase as an architectural feature, whereas a timber balustrade tends to be a more timeless option. Metal balustrades are versatile in that they can be industrial, elegant or quirky. Consider functionality, too, especially if you have kids. An open railing, for instance could become a safety hazard.

What materials should I use for stair treads?


Timber stair treads are strong and timeless, but can show up scuffs. Carpeted or stone stair treads are more traditional options, whereas stainless steel and glass can be quite contemporary. Concrete stair treads are increasingly popular for those looking to create a sculptural masterpiece out of their staircase – just imagine the effect of floating concrete stairs, daringly cantilevered. Also consider using a combination of materials to create visual interest.
