Certain things can not be ignored when we talk about a small house. Even more so, when you refer to a place that has two floors. One such item is creating staircases for second floor in little space. The ladder is a vital element in such homes that you can not take away, even if you wish. That is why in this ideabook we offer you 15 amazing types of stairs that occupy little spaces and are perfect for homes of all kinds. The highlight of these ladders is that they take very little space. Also, they are fully functional and can act as an eye-catching decorative feature.

1. Three elements in one

In this example of stairs, we see how the space has been used for multiple things including a vertical garden and a beautiful bookshelf. The ladder itself has a simple but modern design created in white color which gives it a contrast against the green garden. It is an ideal way to create stairs that occupy little space.

2. Spiral

Spiral staircases are a perfect alternative for homes with little space like this one. They have a design that brings movement and never goes out of fashion. Also, you can find it in many different finishes and materials so that you can choose the one which fits perfectly in your house.

3. Two tranches

This ladder seeks to give a higher sensation of space. In the first section, the design does not include a railing which makes it look airy. However, in the second one, a discrete black color railing has been added for safety purpose. Although, this design is not recommended if you have children at home.

4. Futuristic

This ladder design has left us speechless. It is a model that has steps in the air making it look compact. Besides this, it also has a striking industrial design.

5. Wooden stairs

This natural wood staircase has been adapted correctly to each of the corners of the house. To prevent the visual space from getting blocked any further a railing has been attached to the wall.

6. Foldable

If you have a storeroom, an attic or something similar, then you may settle down for a folding staircase as well. By doing so, you can save a lot of transit space, mainly if the area is used daily.

7. Narrow width

8. Simple and classic

This option is the simplest of the whole list. If you are looking for an alternative that allows you to access the second floor or the mezzanine and is also discreet, then you must bet on a traditional staircase.

9. Modern and minimal

This tiny little alternative is perfect for floors that have a mezzanine. Also, it hardly reduces the transit space and has a very contemporary industrial design.
