Staircases are a functional feature of many homes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful. Homes with hand-turned banisters or sleek, modern steps give the entire space a personality. When a staircase is treated to intuitive design, it has the potential to make a huge statement.
We’ve seen gorgeous solid wood, metal spiral, concrete, minimalist and perfectly painted stairs come through the pages of Design*Sponge over the years, and we love seeing how a staircase can immediately show guests the aesthetic of the rest of the home. Staircases don’t just have to be a way to get from Point A to Point B — they are a design element in their own right, and these are a few of our favorites. –Lauren
