Stairs are a fundamental element which has to be well emphasised and coherent with the rest of the interior we are decorating.
Let’s just think about the fact that they actually are the first thing we notice once we enter a room, that is why before concentrating on materials and colours we should organize the space and the furnishing according to the style, the position and the size of the stairs. They are not a simple architectonical structure, but also a perfect way to make our interior look majestic, harmonious and high, which can be easily transformed into a piece of decoration that confers the whole interior an original and royal appeal. Of course nowadays we have plenty of new shapes and models of stairs adaptable to our homes as the designers often take their inspiration from historical elements to create something fresh and new.
In fact the classical idea of stairs is a bit different from those we are looking at on this website: the old concept of stairs would be composed of steps and handrail, usually made of timber for the poorest ones or marble for those who had the possibility to spend their wealth for refined and fine materials.
Fortunately with the passing of time quality has become more and more accessible to everyone and to every budget, thanks also to those artists whose intention was to satisfy their public, trying to reproduce expensive products with alternative materials, giving the opportunity to embellish any type of home without spending a fortune.
That is a real revolution! Anyway, the price is not the only thing which has been modified: the modern stairs we can find in our houses are characterized by different details and shapes. The pictures which have been selected for you on this website show this design revolution, how things have changed and how aesthetic has met the practicality. There are either external or internal stairs on this website, perfect for any type of landscape and interior. A beautiful example it the picture on the left that represents a cute and girly interior with stairs, decorated with funny colourful little flowers; the prettiest aspect is that the creator used different colours for each step in order to make it more vintage and suitable to big city flats, which are commonly total- white and a bit dull, so that is certainly a nice option for a girl who moves alone to town and wants her little flat to be cosy. The interesting fact is also that the pattern is easy to create with decorated papers and glue to give it a kind of decoupage effect.
An image that catches the attention is the one which portrays modern design stairs with black steps. The material seems to be black timber but the incredible characteristic is the way the designer chose to position the stairs like if they hadn’t a support. The idea is typically minimalistic, so for those who love experimenting this one is doubtless the best choice.
