11 Stylish Staircases
Your stairs are much more than a path from point A to point B. Here, ways to up your style quotient.
On the Rise
Paint risers a mix of shades in a single color to create visual interest as your eye follows the stairs. An otherwise neutral entry provides a backdrop for statement-making color.

A classic staircase leads to an open floor plan and naturally becomes the standout piece among the joined living room, eating area, and kitchen.
This staircase is beauty in simplicity. Unfinished beams float from the wall and epitomize casual seaside style. Just watch where you step!
Backbone of the Home
This homeowner used warm wood and stainless steel to create a staircase that winds through the center of the home. The staircase has been likened to a whale's backbone, both in size and splendor!
Nod to Nautical
A hand-painted tile-and-stone staircase leading down to the home's patio is lined with conch shells for a coastal vibe without the kitsch.

Into the Wild
Follow this cottage's lead by spotlighting outdoor elements in your own home. A large piece of driftwood serves as the perfect natural handrail.
The spiral staircase is anchored by a painted compass and a moody blue striped floor for a striking nautical look from every angle.
