Interior designers spend a lot of energy on how stairs look and function. We love the current emphasis on stair design, especially considering the trend of open, connected spaces. The stairs need to be safe and functional of course, but they are an important aesthetic element in a room, and they need to be beautiful also. We want to show you some of the best stair designs on Pinterest to get you inspired about the stairs in your next reno or build.

The ultimate in modern design, again we love the glass and metal combined with warm wood and modern lines in this London home designed by Living In Space. The perfect pared down modern look for a small space with big impact.

Take the stairs and run away with them! Wood and concrete combined for the perfect balance of warm and cold in this Aussie dining room. The separation of space with wood adds warmth to the dining room and looks amazing.

Even more transitional design is seeing an emphasis, or perhaps a return to the stairs! We love this thoughtful and contemporary take on a more transitional stair railing. Robert Elliott Homes used modern materials but a traditional application in this gorgeous home, and we think it really works.
