Possessing both sculptural and functional qualities is a spiral staircase. The circular ascension means it takes up far less room than its more geometric counterparts, and of course, becomes a true talking point of your home. Once considered something that only appeared in the homes of the rich, spiral staircases now come in a range of different materials such as steel, timber and concrete to suit a varying range of budgets. It is definitely a high impact way to connect one or multiple levels of your home.
A stairway to heaven, perhaps? This all white ensemble that is gently touched by light, appears airy, weightless and gives the impression of the user floating as they climb to the level above. Erring on both a classic and modern style, this example is a subtle, yet beautiful way to implement a spiral staircase into your home.
Place a little slice of the outdoors in your home with this wooden staircase. Emulating the unusual shapes and forms that nature takes on, you can only imagine this as if it were a real tree in a forest; twisting and bending to reach its way through the canopy of foliage to the light above. A timber finish perfectly complements a variety of home styles and will remain elegant and hardy throughout its lifetime.
A marvel for minimalist devotees, this example oozes industrial and modern design. Functional, beautiful and above all, totally durable, you can be sure the maintenance of this set of stairs will always remain low. Suited particularly to the homes of existing warehouses and factories, a completely steel staircase will lift and bring an element of playfulness and style into your home.
Art Deco and Art Nouveau meet to form this next example. The context of this is setting is interesting, a largely white and modern room has curves and the addition of vintage and contemporary furniture. The sideboard is in direct contrast with the bookcase and staircase; testament to how a wide range of design periods can fuse seamlessly together.
Wow! What a conversation starter! This spiral staircase is a piece of art in its own right. Resembling a tornado or whirlwind, the bends and curves are highlighted beautifully by the colour and render finish. Encasing the lower section in glass means your focus remains well and truly on one thing.
