A three-quarter turn staircase changes direction three times. The lower stairs lead to a landing, or open well, with another set of stairs above it. The stairs lead to a second landing with a third and final set of stairs that lead to the next floor. In other words, the staircase turns through three right angles.

The three-quarter design is used when there is a significant vertical distance between two floors.

Due to the changing angles of the design, three-quarter-turn stairs are not suitable small for spaces but will work fine in medium to extra-large homes, and in commercial buildings. In commercial buildings, an elevator may be placed in the open well area.

Pros and Cons of Three-Quarter Turn Staircases

A three-quarter turn staircase offers you the perfect opportunity to turn the wall along with your staircase into an art gallery. Hang framed photographs or artwork to decorate the walls along the staircase and give people something to admire when they stop at a landing.

A three-quarter turn staircase will give your family and visitors ample light and a view of your front (or back) yard.

Depending on how your staircase is configured, you’ll be able to get a full view of the living room, kitchen or other room below the stairs.

A three-quarter turn staircase is hard to build, and not suitable for smaller homes. The changes in direction may be disconcerting for older people and individuals with disabilities.

A Great Choice for Contemporary Design

A three-quarter turn staircase will fit right in if your home design and décor is geared toward the modern, mid-century or avant-garde.

Place sculpture in the open well to make your own mini-museum, or make the staircase itself into a work of art with wood and metal stairs sans balusters. Keep a minimalist but intriguing look by using metal bars as a balustrade with or without a railing on the wall.

Traditional homes can take advantage of the three-quarter turn design by enclosing wood treads and risers with painted spindles lining the staircase. Placing square newels at each point in the turn will make your home seem vast and majestic.

Other traditional designs highlight carpeted stairs and wrought iron balusters topped by a wood handrail. The three-quarter turn staircase design benefits from chandelier placement over the beginning of the staircase.

The winding of the three-quarter staircase makes it great for snaking sections from inside the house to outside to inside again, as used in large Southwestern or Western-style homes. More conservative indoor staircases made with wood treads and no risers are also appropriate for Southwestern style homes.
