Although it is often basic and generic, your staircase can help define your mediterranean style and showcase your decor. By adding a unique staircase design, ornate railing and interesting materials, you can update the overall look to ensure it's something you're proud of. More

What kind of staircase works for me?


When deciding what staircase to install, your top consideration should be space. Not every type fits in every home: A double-sided staircase only works in large entryways, so for a smaller space, you should opt for a straight or L-shaped one instead. After determining function, you can then narrow down your options based on overall appearance. Elliptical or curved stairs offer a touch of elegance, while a spiral set is a more quirky, fun approach (though not necessarily all that practical).

What kind of staircase material should I use?


Your staircase style should blend in with the rest of your house, so don't try to mix two dramatically different tones, like traditional and modern. Carpet and stone are popular traditional materials, while metal and floating wood steps are trendier options. You can also get creative with the railing. An industrial-style rail can help make wood treads contemporary, or an ornate metal railing can help enhance the mediterranean feel. In the end, even though appearance is important, you should first and foremost think about function. If you have young kids, an open railing or hard metal steps can become a safety hazard, while dogs and common household traffic might scratch up wood.
