Tips for Choosing an Eye-Catching Staircase in Texas

The right staircase can open up a home and draw guests inside. It’s commonly a major focal point in the foyer or living area. Since Texans know how to live in the lap of luxury, let’s view five of the most covetable Texas staircases that have added even more luxury to these already impressive homes.

We first stop in Austin with a home that was inspired by Palladio’s Villa Rotunda. The foyer is a domed centerpiece featuring two large Texan staircases mimicking each other in style and design. They provide the grandiose feeling this palazzo demands. The next impressive staircase lies amidst a monochromatic loggia sitting room. One of its two winding staircases has a posh sitting area at its base and is celebrated for its chic minimalism.

For the next stylized staircase, we come across a home in University Park. The staircase is housed in an 6,000 square foot home with a welcoming foyer. The banister features a geometric wrought iron like design that pairs well with the oak hardwoods. Some of the best staircases seem to appear out of nowhere. This next one comes from a home in Houston and seems to melt into the background. Housed in a residence that was built in the French Chateau style, the staircase’s banister wraps around the room with its linear and organic pattern, made of wrought iron like furnishings. The Texan staircase is made of marble and fits in well against the limestone floors. This grand entry provides the essential flow into the formal dining and living rooms.

Any and all of these grand staircases were meant to inspire you for your redecorating or home buying project. When someone walks into your home for the first time, the staircase in the grand foyer provides a welcoming first impression, be sure it is a lasting one with a one-of-a-kind piece. Another helpful design tip is to create color interest. Paint each of the stairs or alternative landing pads different tones. It’s best to keep a monochromatic color story in mind that will match the rest of the house. Also, don’t feel limited to wood as the only material available for the banister. Metals provide a lasting product and can add a modern vibe to the interior design. The last tip is to go with what you know and stick with what you feel most comfortable with. This is something you will have to live with for years, so take the time to design something you love and you will be pleased with the results.
