Consider your interior design style

When searching for staircase inspiration, consider your interior design style as a whole as you get started. As you review staircases that you love on Houzz, pay attention to the overall appearance and design style of the home. Your staircase is an integral piece of your interior design, and as such you want it to stand in union with the overall structure and mood of your space.

Scour the internet

The internet can be a great source of inspiration. Pinterest and Houzz are two good places to start, but a simple Google Images search will do as well. As you’re searching, though, it’s important to ask yourself some questions. The include the following:

  • What size staircase does your home or business allow for?
  • What style staircase do you prefer (straight, curved, spiral, etc.)?
  • What materials do you envision your staircase being made from?

Although very basic, these questions will help you to whittle down your search, molding the collection of beautiful images you have found to fit your exact specifications.
