Why Contemporary Staircases Work in Any Home

Contemporary Glass and Steel Staircase

We have discussed at length before about the importance of a well-built, uniquely-designed staircase in the home – it’s an integral piece not only for the structure of a building, but amongst some of the more striking focal points in your home.  More and more modern homes are adopting contemporary staircase standards of varying complexity, from simple standards inspired by minimalism to more creative, artistic options which offer just as much functionality, but that little bit extra in terms of visual appeal.  Modern staircases are designed with the end user – or homeowner – in mind.  While it is understandably simple to purchase a one-size-fits-all solution on one hand, it makes much more sense to locate a custom-built model on the other.

Modern Staircases fit in any property

Modern homes aren’t always the grandiose, airy, minimalist fortresses you may see in trade magazines or on certain magazine TV productions.  Contemporary homes are varied in complexity, in size and in what they are used for.  Modern properties deserve staircases which not only supply effortless practicality, but also a sense of style and form which blends in seamlessly with any existing décor or interior layout.  Bespoke home installations and furnishings should both reflect the personality of the user and fit the atmosphere and shape of the buildings they are being introduced into.  Therefore, we cannot recommend the presence of a reliable bespoke staircase enough for any modern property worth its salt.

Contemporary staircases arrive in a variety of materials and modes – whether you are keen to adopt the perpetual trend in glass fabrication, or should you wish to dream in wood instead, a reliable architectural designer will be able to produce and suggest the perfect staircase to complement your property and to reflect your own personal tastes and style.  From mansions to multi-storey townhouses, to smaller family units and beyond – modern staircases are available in a wealth of flavours and styles – and what’s more, the right bespoke touch means you will always be able to call the shots on how you would like your final installation to appear.

Contemporary offers so many options

Whether you prefer the thought of wooden treads and balustrades to luxurious and contemporary glass panelling and steel hand railing, the major benefit of going modern on your staircase installation lies in the sheer flexibility and versatility available.  While you are always free to introduce touches of classical styles and ornate flourishes as you desire, modern staircase solutions are amongst the most customisable and therefore some of the most popular with homeowners and architects in search of a functional, heard-wearing focal point.

Steve did a top job with the stainless steel barrier. The work was so good that the boss, Ian, would like you to provide a quote for another other style barrier.

The staircase that you created is fantastic and perfectly in keeping with our barn. I would definitely recommend Elysion to anyone looking for a similar service, many thanks.
