Stairs, like people, come in all shapes & sizes and can be "dressed" in many ways:
These dramatically wide steps taper off to a more narrow staircase. The border of the runner creates a pathway.
Very graphic railing and I love the black and white contrast.
Decorative tile work adorn these risers.
This nature inspired runner "grows" up the stairs.
Yet another black and white, zebra striped runner and black & white photographs with white floors and black baseboards and railing.
Stenciling poetic words on your steps gives you something to read on the way up...
A built-in bookcase conceals the staircase behind and makes good usage of a corridor.
A contemporary staircase descending from the second floor to the first floor.
A clear glass partition like this helps make any narrow space feel more open, especially good for compact staircases.
Another contemporary staircase of steel and cables - love the water fountain under the stairs!
Very very clever to make drawers out of steps!
It was the black cat that got my attention - and I bet he loves these stairs!
Not a flight of stairs I would want to take after a few too many drinks or wearing high heels - narrow, steep, and uneven - but love the old world feel and painted runner.
Another hand painted runner - this to match with the front door and entry!
