As much as we see the beauty in staircases here at Abbott-Wade, we understand that some people don’t pay much attention to their staircase at all, and usually only use it as a means of reaching a different level of their building. This is where the compact, space saving staircase comes into its own, allowing people to still have a way of ascending or descending between floors, without having to deal with the centre of attention that a larger, grander staircase can often be.

We see the elegance and stylistic benefits of all kinds of staircases, no matter their intentions. And, contrary to popular belief, these kinds of staircases can provide their own form of class, and can be the perfect fit for some modern interior décor choices and general staircase ideas. So if you’ve been on the fence about saving space with your staircase, be sure to read on and you may finally make up your mind!

Takes up very little space

Unsurprisingly, the reason why many people opt for space saving staircases is for that very reason. After all, having a staircase that is much larger and wider than it needs to be can become a hinderance, especially in a smaller home where space to manoeuvre is already at a premium.

They are a convenient option that is popular with those that just want to use the stairs as a way of travel, as opposed to the wide treads, grand handrails and lengthy spindles that can often get in the way.

Minimalist look

Not only do these kinds of staircases “do the job”, but they can also supplement the vibe that you are trying to give off with your overall interior design. More and more in recent times, homeowners are deciding on a simple look for their home, incorporating this into their staircase design. These stripped back staircases perfectly fit with this, giving you the chance to give your home a modern, trendy feel, whilst keeping things straightforward when it comes to furniture.

By implementing a space saving staircase in your home, you can sacrifice this area of your home to focus your design ideas on another area that might benefit from some imagination, leaving your staircase as a place that is plain and tranquil as a result.

A variety of options

Many people think that compact staircases are simply bare pieces of wood that come out from the walls, but this is far from the truth. Did you know that U shape staircases – found in many homes and workplaces up and down the country – class as space saving options? The fact that they elevate “back on themselves” means that they are using a smaller footprint than your standard straight staircase.
