Stairs are one of the most necessary elements when a house or apartment has two or more floors. Unless there is an elevator or another device for moving between floors, stairs are an absolute basic for these spaces.

Like every functional feature, there are many who install them without much imagination or creativity. However, there are also those who put creativity, commitment, innovation and style into functional design. This is even more prominent when there is a small space to work with!

These 10 beautiful stairs are designed for spaces that are smaller than most. These are sure to inspire you!

1. Floating stairs

We start off this article with this striking design, which reminds us that stairs don't have to take up too much space.

These original and unique stairs drop down, seemingly out of the ceiling, with large gaps in between. This allows light to filter through and gives the impression that the wooden stairs are floating. 

This beautiful staircase contributes to the aesthetic design of the interiors, while economizing the space available. The staircase is discreet yet noticeable.

2. Compact wood

These gorgeous, original and practical stairs stand out at first sight for several reasons. What is most noticeable, however, is the unique and special distribution. Each step is a different height!

The stairs feature a beautiful, warm and earthy colour, which is ideal for family environments. The design also saves on space, thanks to the shape and width. In fact, it has considerably smaller dimensions compared to most other stairs that can be found out there.

3. Double functionality and child-friendly

This type of staircase requires some expert mastery in terms of planning, execution and installation. 

4. Slightly subtle

6. Interesting curvature when space is lacking

Curved stairs are nothing new, however, they really help to make the most of areas of the home that have reduced space. As we can see in the image, they also have a very original quality to them. The spectacular contours gives an area of a home a beautiful focal point.

What's more is that this design features a wonderful contrast between white and brown, with the stairs adding a great aesthetic value and classic design to the home that is difficult to replicate.

7. Stick to the wall

Who said that stairs with reduced space can't be classy, modern and chic too?
