For fans of modern design, contemporary staircase style options are endless. A modern stair can truly open up a space and serve as a sophisticated focal point. From glass to wood, metal, and everything inbetween, contemporary stairs and railing systems come in all shapes and sizes. This week, we explore some creative examples of modern stairs design.

This mono stringer residential stair’s dark wood treads provide a sleek contrast to the home’s light walls. Complete with a minimalist glass and wood handrail system, this design is guaranteed to make a statement with its simple and striking look. Expertly constructed, the staircase provides ultimate strength and durability.

Our second featured modern design project is a beautiful open riser commercial curved stair. This free-standing stair features a glass and stainless steel railing and allows maximum light to enter the space.  Installed in front of full-height sweeping windows, the stair’s unique arc serves as the perfect backdrop to the space’s gorgeous light fixture.

Third, we feature one of our all-time favorite commercial straight stair projects, designed for an apartment complex clubhouse in Georgia. With maple treads and a custom wrought iron and glass handrail system, this unique honeycomb design uses a classic black and white color scheme for a unique modern twist. In addition to the creative stair design, matching barn doors were constructed to reflect the modern look throughout the building.

Industrial Modern stair designs

Our fourth modern stair design is an industrial residential straight stair. With open risers and stainless steel cable railing, steel newel posts, and wooden handrail, the system is a perfect fit for this modern home. The wooden open treads beautifully contrast with the neutral contemporary space, and metal bars serve to close the gap between treads. Constructed for lasting durability and safety, this stair is a prime example of a stair’s ability to blend functionality and style.

Another innovative option for our modern design-loving customers is the newly introduced Avant Series. Avant transforms functional railing fittings into unique design accents, creating beautiful contemporary wood and stainless steel handrail systems.
