An L-Shaped Staircase

An L-shaped staircase is a staircase that incorporates a 90-degree angle turning either left or right. One of the benefits of this type of staircase is that it can be placed in a corner, so it can be out of the way while still providing a nice visual in the space.

A Curved Staircase

A curved staircase, especially in a foyer setting, is a magnificent design statement. This type of staircase does not have a landing, but merely curves between the two floors it connects. If you’re designing an elegant and sophisticated home, this is the staircase for you!
