A beautifully designed staircase that blends old and new. The staircase uses thick wood slab treads that seem to float on the white painted steel stringer. This metal look is a industrial modern and possibly could be made a bit more elegant with larger posts, or incorporating wood to the rails/posts.
The sleek brown wood stair treads match the wood doors adjacent to the staircase, giving this home a sense of flow and cohesion. Oversized windows allow natural light to saturate the space for a bright, breezy atmosphere.
A horizontally paneled accent wall mimics the design of this country-style staircase. Dark wood treads add beautiful contrast to the space, and a narrow hallway with polished concrete floors leads to the guest bathroom.
Sleek gray tiles give way to warm wood treads upon entering the penthouse's contemporary staircase. A retractable stainless steel and glass panel can be closed to prevent entry and provide space for seating at the bar.
Designer Chip Wade of HGTV's Elbow Room used a sturdy rope attached to the wall with chrome ring fasteners as a rustic stair bannister alongside this staircase, which features clean white risers beneath reclaimed wood treads.
