Designing Your Dream Staircase

Acadia StairsThink about the staircase in your home. How many times a day do you traverse up and down it – carrying baskets of laundry, children’s backpacks and so much more? Most of us don’t give our staircases a second glance, but why is that?

Your stairs are an incredibly important piece of the home, and they can be much, much more than just a set of wood steps and a simple wooden railing. Regardless of the style of your home and interior design taste, there are plenty of unique, bold options for you to consider when re-designing your staircase. The opportunities to express yourself through your stairs are endless. You just have to know where to get started.


When it comes to your new staircase, you shouldn’t feel limited by shape. Sure, in some spaces the classic straight staircase looks best, but if you are looking to add a bit more flair to your home, why not consider an elegant spiral staircase or a bold curved staircase?

Depending on your particular needs and the amount of space available, different shapes and sizes can really accentuate the style of your home – while still serving the functional purpose of a set of stairs.


Staircases can be made in stainless steel, standard steel, diamonds plate, and a variety of wooden trends. Materials are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, you can choose a sleek black look, an industrial silver style or a crisp white.

The opportunity to customize your staircase style doesn’t end there. The treads – pieces that you step on – are just as customizable as the shape and material of the entire staircase. Whether you prefer smooth metal, textured metal, rich wood or even glass treads, your guests will be looking down at their feet every time they begin to walk up your staircase.


Stair safety is just as important as staircase style, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise one for the other. An ornate metal railing can be developed just as easily as a clear glass one. Regardless of the look you prefer, your railing can be designed to accent the look and feel of the custom staircase as a whole.
