Granted, staircases are a functional feature in a home as they connect two or more levels to allow us to climb up and down. However, with a bit of creativity, you can turn them into a work of art that takes centre stage in your home. We’ve picked 10 stunning designs that do just that.

Tree House

In this Chennai home, the wooden planks of the staircase turn at right angles at each landing, wrapping around a tree as it moves up to the next level. It creates the feel of climbing up to a tree house. Natural light shining in through the skylight adds to the setting.

​From Earth to Sky

In this lovely eco-friendly home, the stone and cement staircase leads up to the bedroom and terrace on the upper level. The open design presents a view of the sky from the lower level, which has an earthy feel with exposed-brick walls and cemented flooring – the perfect representation of earth meets sky!

​Musical Heaven

This fun staircase design would be perfect for a young musician’s house. The chord-shaped steps lead to the loft on the upper level. Completing the stunning image is the staircase railing that resembles guitar strings, as well as the mirror-image guitar sculpture on the wall.

​Perfect Symmetry

When viewed from the courtyard, the beautiful wood and steel staircase in this modern home is picture-perfect with the supporting steel rods moving from tall to short in perfect symmetry as it rises toward the upper floor.

​Child’s Play

The cute cubby-hole storage built under the staircase of this home gives it the look of a staircase that has been put together using building blocks. It adds a playful element to the home’s décor.

​Rope Bridge

Wooden planks that seem to hang from steel ropes make the staircase in this modern home look like a suspension bridge. If you are scared of heights, don’t look down when you ascend it!

​Stack of Benches

The design of this staircase perfectly matches the eclectic theme of the home. The unique bench-like design of each step and the absence of railings make it look like benches stacked to provide access to the upper level.

​Old-world Luxury

The curved marble bannister along the gorgeous staircase in this luxurious home is reminiscent of that in an old plantation mansion. The contrasting brown stone paving in the centre of each step makes it look like it is carpeted all the way up, adding to the luxury theme.

​Twist in the Tale

The unusual twist of the staircase in this modern home makes it eye-catching! It adds to the grandeur of the spacious home with the smart white and brown colour combination.

​Walking on Air

And Let There Be Lights

In a home filled with natural light, this staircase features stone slabs supported by an almost-invisible metal frame. The absence of a bannister and the open-plan design of the interiors give the feeling that one is walking on air. This design is not recommended for the faint-hearted!
