What is a modern staircase?

It’s a staircase type, or more specifically, a style.  There are several attributes.  They include simple, clean lines, alternative materials such as steel, cable and glass (often used with wood) and alternative design elements such as modified stringer and riser designs (see our parts of a staircase to learn more).

We’d be remiss if we didn’t include in our definition what it’s not.  It’s not ornamental such as spindles and curves.  It’s not curving or grand; instead usually straight or in a switchback style.

There is no single design that is modern, as you’ll see below.  We feature a huge collection of modern staircases in our gallery below and while the designs vary widely, they all fall under the modern style.

Floating

This is not our only floating modern staircase example. You'll notice there's no supports under the upper portion of the steps (tread and risers).

With lights

Glass balustrade

Modern carpeted stairs

Modern stair railing

Modern steel stair railing.

Modern steel stair railing.  Modern railings / balustrades often incorporate alternative materials such as steel, cable and glass.  This is a fine example with stainless steel.

Modern spiral stairs

Modern loft stairs

Modern industrial loft stairs against exposed brick wall.  The stringers are solid steel while the treads are wood.  No risers used.  This is much like a simple deck stairs design.

Modern loft stairs with office underneath.

Modern loft stairs with office underneath.  The stairs are one solid concrete form with wood boards placed on top for a polished look.  The form “floating” design creates room under the staircase for a small office.  I love how the desk plank matches the wood planks used as tread surface on the concrete stairs.

Basement

modern basement stairs with shelving balustrade.

modern basement stairs with shelving balustrade.  I have to admit that this is the first design I’ve seen where the balustrade is a shelving unit.  Clever and unique.

Modern storage staircase

Modern stairs with shelving.

Modern stairs with shelving.  This is a really clever design how the tiered shelving extends off the actual steps creating a seamless combination of display shelving and stairs.
