ASK A DESIGNER

DESIGN DILEMMA:

My husband and I have decided to remodel our home of 45 years so we can “age in place.” The rooms are boxed in and we would like an open concept floor plan but the staircase is in the middle of the home! What suggestions do you have to create a more open airy feel without moving the stairs?

SUE’S SOLUTION:

I highly recommend installing a floating staircase for a modern open, airy feel. They can be formed from a vast array of materials and finishes and custom configured in numerous shapes including straight, switchback, curved, and even spiral.  Multiple flights can add an even grander 3-dimensional effect. We can help you create a beautiful new staircase and even make it a special art piece in the center of your home.
