Classic and double flight staircase
The single-flight staircase is undoubtedly the most common staircase, as it easily adapts to the available spaces and is prone to various configurations; it can be designed straight, quarter-turn, half-turn and, if space permits, S-shaped; moreover, it can have different inclinations, even if, usually, the ideal one would be 30 °. Depending on the environment and the space available to you, you may want to consider whether a quarter-turn staircase with one landing at 90 ° or with two at 45 ° is more suitable for your environment. However, when the space available is limited, but you still want to design a ramp staircase, you could opt for a "double" ramp, so as not to have too high steps and give our environment a touch of design.
Spiral staircase and sinuous design staircase
If the floor area needed for the staircase is small, or we need to install one in a small apartment, thus adopting a space-saving solution, the spiral staircase idea could be a valid alternative. Often, when we think of this type of staircase, we mistakenly think of curved and helical staircases, that is characterized by a support pin mounted laterally and under the steps. Usually, in reality, spiral staircases are made very compact thanks to the characteristic of having the steps that twist around a central pole. We remind you that this type of staircase allows us to use materials of various kinds, from wood to metal, and it is also possible to make it with a square plan. Characteristic of this staircase is the presence of a handrail or railing.
An extraordinary variant of the classic spiral staircase, is unequivocally the sinuous staircase. Certainly, its structure is more bulky and requires very large spaces. This type of staircase forms a delightful curve and rolls up on itself, taking on an imposing and leading role in our environment.
Library ladder and hidden ladder
In a strongly minimalist era, in which functionality and elimination of the superfluous are placed as starting points, there is nothing better than designing a staircase that allows us to exploit the area below: the simplest, most glamorous and perfect solution. style, could be to obtain in the basement, a library compartment, preferably in wood, creating shelves and carvings, possibly as deep as the steps themselves.
To stay on the subject of "essentiality", the idea of a staircase with the function of a protagonist could be a hitch. This is why a hidden staircase could be a valid alternative: usually, instead of the classic handrail, it has a real wall, produced with panels of various kinds and materials, perhaps decorated with wallpaper or furniture of various kinds.
Staircase with slats and suspended steps
Usually when choosing an indoor staircase, one tends to opt for a comfortable and safe solution in the first place. When it comes to safety, we immediately think of handrails and railings as they guarantee us greater support. However, as a valid alternative, there is that of applying a series of very low strips that will make the look of your staircase amazing and comfortable at the same time.
Always referring to the steps, if you are looking for a contemporary and unique structure, you could evaluate the suspended steps: this type of staircase, whose footprint is very small, creates a cantilever effect, giving our view a sense of suspended staircase. in all style, creating a great visual impact. For this type of structure we can range from materials such as wood, a classic that never sets, reinforced concrete, which gives life to a bare and essential atmosphere, steel, characteristics for their "light" appearance and their modern style and glass, which is a truly unique solution of its kind and in a minimalist style.
In conclusion, we advise you to pay attention, during the evaluation of your dream staircase, also to the choice of materials to match, for example, if the idea is to create a vintage atmosphere with a modern staircase, remember to contrast the wood or glass with chromed or satin steel structures.
