Staircases are essential, functional elements in many homes. However, they don’t have to be merely functional; they can be beautiful, as well One of the most popular styles of staircase is a floating staircase. A floating staircase is pretty much perfect for any contemporary home that wishes to sport striking interiors. Adding a floating staircase is a way to make your home unique, and this type of staircase is particularly attractive in a home with modern or minimalist decor. Floating staircases blend in beautifully both form and functionally as they lift the ‘style quotient’ of your entire house to a whole new level! There are many variations on the concept of a floating staircase. Typical floating staircases have no visible riser and no decorative trim of any type. Often, these staircases have no stringers, and if the staircase does have stringers, they are exposed and visible.
The steps on these staircases are often made from wood, though some are made from clear glass or plastic designed specifically for stairs or steel. Since they are striking, open and airy, it’s best to use a floating staircase in large areas where they can make a visual statement. Often these staircases are treated like a sculptural piece.
