This eye-catching staircase is a perfect focal point for this light, open space. The use of open risers, glass and large opening allows the light through the entrance via the generous feature windows creating a wow moment as you walk through the front door.
The line of sight through the hallway into the dining area and through to the back garden is a great architectural feature, and the open riser option on the staircase helps the flow of this.
Open Riser Construction
The Open Riser Construction style on this staircase helps to let the light flow through the space. However, using this construction method, a visible finish to the underside of the stairs is also achieved. This feature, coupled with the neutral colour scheme of the space and the oak flooring, really helps the staircase shine as a centrepiece within the room.
"Less is more" is often referred to in modernist design. In this case, less floorspace creates a much grander feeling to a property with this generous-sized stairway opening allowing light to flood through the stairwell from the window at the front of this house. The natural oak's simplistic nature and glass balustrade complement this contemporary style perfectly.
The abundance of natural lighting in this space is a significant feature of the room. However, LED lights have cleverly been added to the underside of the treads on the staircase, helping to enhance the area at night time also. The subtle lighting from these gives off a warm glow which helps show off the oak components on the stairs.
Staircases serve an essential role in linking floors as a vital component in the circulation space of buildings. Often we feel that people don’t give the attention that the humble staircase deserves; however, feature lighting like this creates a dramatic feel to a space, drawing your attention upwards through the area, which helps draw attention and helps show off the stairs.
