7 Ultra Modern Staircases

If you are looking to rejuvenate your home then a modern staircase can certainly do so. It may require a lot of time and patience on your part, but it is definitely worth it. Take a look at seven of the most contemporary staircases….

1) Back-lighted staircases.

This feature will give your home the celeb treatment. You cannot deny how impressive this looks and just imagine how stunning the stairs will look at night time as well. Turn the lights off and let the beautiful back-lighted staircase lead you to your room.

2) Glass act.

A glass staircase is a surefire way of achieving a contemporary and classy look. There aren’t many other styles of staircases with such a striking appearance as this one.

3) Floating stairs.

Floating stairs bring a magical quality to any home. The design itself is simplistic, yet the effect is dazzling. It manages to achieve the perfect blend between being bold yet elegant at the same time.

4) Add some colour.

If you don’t want the hassle of replacing your stairs then you should get your paint brush out and add some colour. This is an easy way of creating a modern look without going through the cost and the hassle of a new staircase. Not only this, but your stairs will look new once you’ve gave them a lick of paint.

5) Cantilevered staircases.

These staircases look like they are floating and the one in the picture has a particularly modern vibe to it. Typically wooden staircases are more associated with traditional designs. Thus, this is a great option for those who want a wooden staircase yet still want to keep the style fresh.

6) Divided staircases.

Creating a divide in the middle of the stairs is highly innovative. It’s unlikely that you will see many homes boasting this style of staircase – which is what makes it so great.

7) Concrete stairs.

Concrete stairs are great for those who are looking for something modern yet do not want to take too many risks. They look immaculate, contemporary, and will fit into any style of home.
