Whilst a straight staircase may sound run of the mill and very simple, when designed properly they are often some of the most visually stunning stairs around and don’t ever need to compromise on aesthetics or intrigue to be effective. They are also often the most difficult to engineer, with a plethora of customisation options.
The beauty of a straight staircase is often in its simplicity. But thanks to the numerous options, you can actually make it as complicated or as clean as you like. Materials are often mixed with glass and metal set off against the finest finish of wood available. Though using a single material can often be the most awe-inspiring of all.
There is often a mis-conception that straight stairs take up much more room than a spiral staircase. However this isn’t always the case, a well designed and thought out straight staircase positioned in the right place can be just as space saving. And of course, even a straight staircase can still have a corner. Those that turn back on themselves but still maintain straight angles can be some of the most contemporary. However, if you don’t think a straight staircase is for you, there are of course other options such as helical and spiral staircases.
