A curved staircase adds class and charm your home. Most curved stairs are located near the entrance of a home. Although they may be placed in the kitchen or elsewhere, they make the best impression when built in the home’s front room.
Curved stairs are different than spiral stairs because they are built on a larger radius and don’t make a full circle. Curved staircases work both indoors and outdoors, and you can adapt them to both traditional and modern styles.
Our photo gallery shows 40 curved staircases to inspire your curved staircase design ideas. We add new ideas regularly and have hundreds of staircase designs in other styles to pique your interest.
Pros and Cons of Curved Staircases
Curved staircases are costly, and the most difficult to build. Since curved stairs are smaller than regular stairs, some people may find them hard to climb or feel dizzy when using them. It is also much harder to move furniture and appliances up and down curved stairs than straight stairs.
A free-standing curved staircase requires lots of internal support and needs to be strong enough to support itself.
On the plus side, curved stairs are easy to walk up if they have a large radius. A curved staircase has wedge-shaped treads, which lend visual appeal and glamour to any home and increase its resale value. The wedge-shaped treads can be configured to fit a smaller space, so you can fit a curved staircase just about anywhere inside (or outside) your house.
Arched Stairs Make a Great First Impression
Most curved staircases contain a flight of treads and risers shaped like an arch. When built in a traditional style, they make a simple home look grand. Cover the treads with lush red or green carpet for a commanding presence. You can also increase glamour in the room by adding a chandelier near the staircase.
The newels on traditional curved staircases tend to be sleek wood rods instead of larger, intricately carved posts.
Mid-century designs channel the styles in vogue during the 1950s and 1960s. Try a curved pop art staircase design with colorful carpeted treads, a wood handrail, and concrete, glass or painted wood fence surrounding the stairs instead of a regular balustrade.
Contemporary designs still utilize wood treads and risers for the most part, but glass treads with an inventive metal balustrade and metal railing against the wall may inspire you to think of some free-form designs of your own.
