Here in Florida we do not often have need for stairs, however using marble or natural stone as stairs adds such a visual appeal that it can easily be a focal point of a room. There is no need to have only wood as the material being used! Think outside the box.
Our first examples use marble and stone. These natural elements add a lot of beauty and variety as no two pieces are alike.
Next we have metal. There are so many options with metal, reclaimed from other sources as well as new but with a variety of textures and finishes. Using metal as an accent is also a great idea!
Using other unusual materials like concrete, glass and acrylic. Poured concrete as shown in the first images are a great option for so many things and can even be done at home for DIY projects like making pots for plants. Look up ideas to give you more inspiration!
I love how these stairs appear like they are floating! Almost scary to think about walking up them.
Using lights is also a great idea to make sure people know where the steps are or for just a little bit of ambient lighting in a room.
Not sure if these are painted glass or stained glass, but either way they are STUNNING! If you want to add a bit of pop to your space this is a great option. You can also paint/stain wood or concrete stairs to add more intrigue to your space.
If you have stairs remember that they can be beautiful and not just functional! So think outside the box and hopefully some of these images have inspired you and you can pin to your Pinterest board
