Often, the words “spiral staircase” bring to mind a grand mansion or cathedral, but spiral staircases don’t have to be fancy. Sometimes, they can be very practical, providing a space-saving way to access a higher level of your home or office. Below are some great uses for spiral staircases.
#1: Loft Area
Small loft areas are a great way to add a little extra space to your house, but ladders, while practical, aren’t always the safest way to climb up to those lofts. Spiral staircases make lofts accessible to both small children and the elderly and won’t take up as much space as traditional stairs.
#2: Deck or Patio
Every deck needs a staircase to the ground…why not make yours a spiral? Spiral staircases from your deck to your patio save space, of course, but they also add sophistication to your house’s appearance. Plus, spirals have the ability to add a soft, traditional touch to modern home designs.
Studies and libraries have the potential to be the most beautiful rooms in your house, and spiral staircases only add to the elegance. If you want access a second floor office or library, just add a spiral staircase, and you will instantly have a cozy spot for your favorite book lover.
#4: Tucked in a Corner
Sometimes there just isn’t enough space in a room for a traditional staircase. Spiral staircases, however, are frequently only four or five feet wide – small enough to be tucked away in the corner of your kitchen or living room.
#5: Vacation Home
The style of spiral staircases can be matched to any home, and vacation homes provide some of the best examples of this. Is your vacation home a rustic log cabin in the woods? Try a wooden spiral staircase. Or is your home a modern house on the beachfront? Consider a fashionable silver steel or steel and wood combination staircase.
#6 Commercial Buildings
There are many uses for spiral staircases in commercial buildings. For example, a spiral staircase makes a beautiful, dramatic statement in a lobby area, or as access to upper level offices in a retail space. Spiral staircases can also be a cost effective option in commercial remodeling projects.
