A straight staircase is the most common staircase design, as it is the simplest to build and fits in most homes. A straight staircase has a straight flight of stairs that connects two levels of a building. It’s affordable and gives people walking up and down a view of the entire flight of stairs. A straight staircase reduces the chance of bumping into someone coming up the other direction.

Pros and Cons of Straight Staircases
- Design-wise, a straight staircase is easier to modify. Add carpet, rug runners or tile to customize your stairs, or choose glass, metal or wood for your baluster or balustrade.
- Straight staircases are also safer for people with mobility issues. You can add a stairlift without sacrificing a stylish design. A stair lift can be added to the wall or the staircase itself.
- Straight stairs are suitable for any size space from huge waterfront living spaces to tiny spaces linking a basement to upper floors. Straight staircase design ideas are mostly geared for medium spaces linking a living room or kitchen to upper floors.
- Straight staircases don’t offer as much privacy as curved, turned or spiral staircases. Since the design lacks a visual barrier between floors, it is much easier to see the upper or lower floors. This may be a problem for houses with families living on different levels of a house.
- A straight staircase doesn’t have the landing platforms of a quarter-turn staircase or other designs, making it less interesting visually and lacking a “break” in the walking pattern. The lack of a landing may make it harder for seniors to navigate.
One Style, Many Possibilities
Straight staircases can be used in any room of your house or outdoors. Modern designs are quite popular and may incorporate floating metal treads (for outdoors and pool house access). Walnut or any hardwood can also be used for a tread-only design, with glass or metal railings for contrast.
You can use painted stone or concrete without a railing for an informal indoor vibe. Use patterned stair runners along with wood treads and risers for a country feel. Curved or circular newels complement the homespun look.
Scandinavian designs focus on open platforms and accent unfinished blond-colored wood with minimal railings. For something more ornate and traditional, choose wrought iron railing and balustrade with wood treads and risers.
