Movin’ On Up

If a staircase were a room, it would probably be one of the must utilized rooms in a home.  Well, at least in my home, where dogs, kids and even myself are constantly on the move from one floor to another.  A staircase does not have to be strictly utilitarian these days.  Rather, a staircase can be as much as a statement piece as a work of art.  The following staircases are prime examples of the variety and ingenuity of the modern staircase.

This is actually from a Chicago area home I featured in a post a few months ago!

[…] Exactly how much of a role does a staircase play in your home design? More and more, this centerpiece is becoming less of functionality — although it always will be — and more of an opportunity for some design creativity in the home. Every aspect of it from it’s flooring, to how it winds –straight stairway or spiral?—presents an opportunity for fun. Take a peek at some photos we found from MaterialGirlsBlog. […]
