Church WalkContemporary Staircase, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
3. Create cohesionThe material you choose for your banisters usually complements or contrasts with the under-stair area below. A striking difference can be stunning, but the opposite can also work. Here, the cupboards, stairs and banister are blended together thanks to Scandi-style pale wood. The visible woodgrain helps to highlight the design, as it chimes with the lines of the spindles.
Make under-stairs storage beautifulThe beautifully considered detailing of this timber staircase, in a London new build, evokes the craftsmanship of traditional stairs, but in a decidedly modern way, with clean lines and square corners. Outward-opening panels provide ready access to storage, this time below the steps.Ideas for creating storage from your stairs
Blend inUsing the same Scandi-pale wood for these under-stairs cabinets as the staircase and banister creates a feeling of uniformity and order. Rather than creating one cupboard, the architect has divided them into smaller cupboards that will be easier to keep tidy and navigate in a hurry.
