Spectacular Stairs

Stairs are the name given to a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances. Stairways may be straight and round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles, but why does this mean that stairs have to be a boring constructions in the middle of our homes, shopping centre’s and hotels. As a major focal point in any space, designing a stairs which draws attention to itself for all the right reasons is a massive part of a design when building or recreating an interior of any space. You don’t always have to conform to the standard wooden step and handrail stairway, incorporate a design and finish which works with the style of the interior. Here is collection of some of the most unique and stylish stairs from buildings and homes around the world.
