RE-IMAGINING STAIRS

Stairways are almost often overlooked, whether inside or outside the house. But this shouldn't be the case - it's too important a building element to ignore. Besides, a staircase offers so many opportunities for one to put those creative - and imaginative - juices to work.

Unconvinced? Consider how others have made stairways:







Unconventional



'Fly'



Space-saving


If you still are not sold by now, I've got nothing else to say, really...

"must be awesome for finding more party space"

Throw a party with the "fly" stairs, and you'll end up with a pile of crippled guests on the floor...

Thank you very much for your time.

yes, this is exactly what we should do! Make every stairway unique so that while people are contemplating an 8' (or more) descent, they have to decipher confusing and purposely unique visual cues!

What could be more awesome!
