4 Ways Floating Stairs Can Enhance Your Home Design

Floating stairs in a warm, bright, modern space.

When it comes to the overall look and feel of your home, stairs are often one of the last things you think about. Floating stairs can not only become the functional artwork at the center of your home, but can be the piece that ultimately empowers you to achieve the ideal design aesthetic you had in mind.

Let’s look at a few ways you can use floating stairs to enhance your home design.

1. Spiral Stairs Increase Space and Texture 

When you enter a new room for the first time, your eyes are drawn to objects that stand out. If you are looking for a system that steals the spotlight almost immediately, look no further than FLIGHT Spiral. With intricate curves and helical, floating treads, this is one of the easiest ways to add dimension to your home without taking up too much space.

2. Mix and Match Light and Dark 

Another option to enhance your space would be contrasting pairings of light and dark. Perfectly matching every object in your home can start to make your space feel bland. With a stark contrast between aesthetics, you’ll be able to bring a whole new dynamic feel to your space. 

For example, the light, White Oak treads on this FLIGHT Cantilever system against the dark backdrop make the system stand out in the best way. Additionally, the ultra-clear glass railing helps bring the whole system together.

3. Create a Focal Point

One of the secrets to enhancing a space is to create a striking focal point. No singular aspect of a space commands attention quite like a floating staircase.

Take for example this gorgeous system in Hidden Hills, California. This FLIGHT Mono system extends to three floors and perfectly stands out on each one. With each precise turn on the separate levels, this system is able to bring out a level of quality craftsmanship that could elevate any space.

4. Use LED Treads to Light Up Your Space

If you’re looking for ways to go bigger and bolder than even a basic floating staircase, LED treads are the perfect way to express an undeniably modern aesthetic. This particular system stands out with its beautiful construction, and the addition of a sleek, horizontal railing maximizes the clean, modern industrial look the homeowners were after.
