As visible in the images, staircases need not be reserved to a utility status within the home. From meandering spirals to lineal reflections of the home’s architectural aesthetic, staircases are visually central to our homes.
The first staircase pictured is an example of a contemporary design and follows closely with the rest of the home. Clean lines, white walls, skirting, risers, and open windows, intensify the striking nature of the wrought-iron handrail system. Notice the vault and angles in the ceiling above. Again, everything is a reflection of the rest of the home. Care to see more of this home? Do so here: 2021 Reggie-Winning Home
The second image contrasts the first completely. Full of grace, charm, and elegance, this stairwell speaks to refinement and lavish details.
Regardless of personal preference, both examples are stunning and showcase what a staircase can be.
