Inspiration Mondays - Stairs

Staircase  -  a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. ...

                   Who knew that stairs came in so many options?

 I have lived in enough small spaces that I appreciate furniture that serves a double purpose and makes sure that no space goes unwasted. I  have thousands of books, so am always happy to find alternative places to store them. Extra storage in general is a good thing! Check out some of these innovations and inspirations.
 
 
                                                               I want this!!
 






This is clever, I never have enough room for all my shoes!

This is great use of space as well



I love this one  


This one is my own, never used, still in storage


More stair tread storage



Great use of small space


This staircase is featured on Desperate Housewives. I love it so much, I took a picture of my TV screen

And then of course there are stairs that make a statement:
           
                                                          Floating Stairs





Organic Stairs


Stairs in unusual places

Stairs to motivate you


Colourful Stairs


                                                    Furniture shaped like stairs
 

The "What to do with all those skateboards now that the boys have left home" stairs

Wonderfuly ornate stairs



FUN stairs!!!

And what about that small space under the stairs? Well if your inventive enough, you can live there.

The Bedroom

The Bathroom

The Kitchen


The office


The Lounge



The Bar

The Play Room
 
Now if all these pictures haven't got you really excited about stairs, then visit this site Stair Porn, it's all about stairs and nothing else. I never thought of stairs as eye candy before!

  1. Wow! I am a huge fan of stairs...I know dorky, right? I had a kitchen built under the stairs in a house I used to rent--I miss that place! It was a old carriage house on the grounds of an 1879 mansion....There was a HUGE and beautiful English garden complete with water features--ahh so nice! But I've since moved on....either way I hope you'll visit my new blog showcasing my new adventures in life and home decor!

  3. The ornate spiral stairs looks totally awesome! I saw a similar concept on another blog, only with a huge glass pillar in the middle of the spiral staircase. It would have been a better idea if they turned that glass pillar into a vertical aquarium!

  4. I would have loved to see a fishtank going up the center of the stairs, what a cool idea. Probably be a bitch to clean it though :(

  7. I rarely leave responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Inspiration Mondays - Stairs".
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it simply me or does it look like some of these comments appear like they
    are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at
    other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to
    post. Would you make a list of all of your social sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

  10. Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints
    for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm
    a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

  11. Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
