Floating staircase ideas for the modern home
A staircase is an element of the home that is often an afterthought. However, those times seem to be changing rather quickly as stunning staircases are quickly becoming a must for the complete modern home. A stunning spiral staircase or a beautiful floating staircase add to the charm of stylish and coveted interiors. Both homeowners and designers are now building magnificent and sometimes mesmerizing staircases that amaze and intrigue us with their innovative design.
Floating staircases are just about perfect for any modern home that wants to show off an impressive interior. They beautifully combine both form and function, elevating the style quotient of your entire home to a new level. Here are some cool houses that proudly display the levitation staircase and they will hopefully inspire you to add one to your home too.

Touch of minimalism
The most important feature that the floating stairs carry with them is the touch of minimalism that they automatically bring to any space they adorn. The architectural composition of the floating staircases is such that they tend to naturally bring with them a certain sense of contemporary flair and uncomplicated style. This pretty much guarantees that your living room, lounge or any area you choose as the space for the floating stairs will sport at least a semi-minimalist look.

You can go one step further by changing the floating stair design to open stair. But the lack of railings and seemingly free-floating staircases aren’t a proposition that’s ideal for everyone. If you are afraid of heights or have children around, the best thing to do would be to fit a Glaus handrail or something similar.

Floating stairs not only help with the aesthetic elements of a facility, but they also contribute a lot in terms of ergonomics. A floating staircase is perfect for small spaces in more ways than one. Most of these staircases typically take up very little space compared to staircases that are far more traditional in design. In addition, floating staircases create a light and airy atmosphere that makes interiors look much more spacious.

Since spiral staircases seem to be as popular as floating staircases, there’s no reason you can’t combine the two ideas. A suspended spiral staircase is indeed a sight to behold, and yet it’s not for the faint of heart! There are other directions if thinking in you can ensure that your floating staircase will stand out from the crowd. A touch of color can always be added using the ornate staircase.
