Contemporary staircase design is taking form in a variety of ways, from grand statement stairs that act as eye-catching statement pieces in spaces, to more subtle modern staircases suited for minimal interiors. When developing contemporary stairs, it is important for us as designers to create a staircase that is stylish but still truly functional.
Due to the technology available to us, we take pride in our ability to push contemporary staircase development to its boundaries - exploring options that were previously considered too complex, or even impossible. And due to the very natural of contemporary staircases, it is vital for us to stay ahead of the curve in terms of trends in style and the use of materials.
Modern floating staircases often combine glass treads with glass balustrading, allowing light to travel for stair for a truly minimal feel often associated with contemporary stairs. Modern spiral staircases on the other hand, are often formed from a single material such as steel, or use a careful combination of contrasting colours, such as black or light brown and white. Contemporary spiral staircases are especially popular in residential environments where space is at a premium, but homeowners don’t want to compromise on style.
Sometimes, a contemporary staircase can be effective in historic properties where they contrast with original features such as wooden beams or traditional brickwork. Liquid metal finishes are popular options for contemporary stairs, as are unusual woods, usually used for treads including black walnut, cohiba and bamboo. Contemporary staircases often feature unique balustrade designs; a perfect example includes EeStairs’ stylish Cells balustrades which are based on the organic shapes associated with cellular structures.
At EeStairs we are committed to working closely with clients from conception to installation, ensuring that we produce the contemporary staircase design that you dreamed of.
