Space can be a problem, especially when a lot of features and elements need to be included in a limited area. It’s when spiral staircases are most efficient. A spiral staircase offers functionality in a compact form and can also serve as a sleek and graceful décor element.
Save space by placing the spiral staircase in the corner of the room. It can be the focal point of the space and it would gracefully fit in there. It’s a strategy you can adopt if you have a small studio or loft or if you decide to renovate and add a loft space which wasn’t initially included in the design.
Another elegant option is a spiral staircase that wraps around a sleek wall in the hallway. It would be a freestanding element designed to save space in an attractive and elegant manner. In here, for example, the staircase is also the feature that delimitates the kitchen from the rest of the open floor plan.
A spiral staircase can easily fit in areas such as a living room. Its sculptural look and design plus the fact that it takes very little floor space and wraps around a thin pole don’t make it a big inconvenient compared to the functionality it offers.
A house with high ceilings can be restructured and a loft space can be added, for example, above the kitchen. A spiral staircase can offer access to this upper portion and can also become a beautiful part of the room’s overall design.
Spiral staircases don’t need unusual combinations of materials or bold colors to stand out. In fact, it’s when they’re simple that they look most alluring.
Of course, color can also be part of a spiral staircase’s design. The interior can be white while the exterior is red in which case the effect will be eye-catching ad the contrast will be a classical and elegant one.
Depending on the design of the area where the staircase is situated as well as the style chosen for the décor in general, this element can feature a variety of looks. This wooden staircase has a traditional design which makes it great for this home library and its sober décor.
A metal staircase will likely appear less robust than a wooden one, given how durable and strong metal is and how little material is needed for a stable and safe design.
Spiral staircases with a metal structure are ideal for small homes. They’re not at all visually intrusive so they can even go unnoticed. However, it will likely be the focal point, no matter how simple its design is.
Take advantage of the staircase’s sculptural look and structure and play with its design. Include a sleek staircase in an industrial-inspired home where it will contrast with elements such as the exposed brick and beams but where it will also fit like a glove.
The clean and simple lines of this spiral staircase and the combination of wood and metal in this particular context allow it to become the main attraction in this minimalist décor.
