The Unique and Creative Staircase Designs

If you happen to be building a house, and it’s going to be higher than one floor, you’ll probably need a staircase. What do you imagine when you hear the word “staircase”? Let me guess.. You see this very basic staircase shape that a 5 year old would draw, right?

But why not go beyond that?

To get your creative juices flowing, we want to show you 25 unusual and creative staircase designs – build something similar in your home and navigate from one floor to another with style! Now scroll down the list and tell us which one you would like to have in your house?

1. Understairs

“Coat storage is often an eyesore, but not with this understairs unit. The well-engineered sliding cupboard can use hooks or clothes rails according to preference.” (Designed by Deriba Furniture)

2. Sensualscaping Stairs

“The stair is a continuation and intensification of the simple graphic skirting board lines that trace their way through the house. As they turn the corner into the stair void, they expand like a genie released from a lamp, curling and separating and bifurcating from the wall to form the delicate edge of the stair treads, lifting into the air to rise as the veil of the balustrade.” (Designed by Atmos Studio).

3. Stairs

Staircase designed for a private residence in Stockholm, Sweden in 2006 by Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom. (Designed by TAF arkitektkontor).

4. Flat F.M

These floating stairs link the living room to the private space reserved for the owner under the rooftops. (Designed by ecole).

7. The Rainbow House Stairs

“The Rainbow House is a magical oasis on a busy road filled with people and noise. When you step through its front door, you enter a parallel universe of fun, colour, movement and sensuality, leaving the ordinary world far behind.” (Designed by Ab Rogers).

8. Emmental Stairs

“The Emmental stairs was designed for a young creative family with an equisite design taste and an eye for details and their two children. They were just starting the refurbishment of their apartment and wanted interior stairs that would harmonize with the historic ambiance of the apartment and their aesthetic requirements, but also add an extra touch to their living space.” (Designed by Biljana Jovanovic).

9. Blood Vessel Stairs

“The home may be a machine for living, but it’s also an mechanical extension of the body.” (Designed by DMVA Architecten).

10. Steel Stair Mesh at Villa La Roche

12. M Lofts

“The alternate tread stair was designed to be a perfect union of functionality, structure and form. With regard to functionality, the stair is comfortable, safe to climb, and spatially efficient; the open sides of the stair provide ample and well-placed grip locations.” (Designed by nC2architecture).
