In order to get more light into the home, they had to design several features into this staircase area. They located the stairs along the south, glass railing, skylights and windows in the stairwell. They also used LED strip lighting within the carbonized bamboo stairs, landing and floors.

The Floor

Taking up the largest surface areas, the floor of the stairs set the look of your stairway. There are various style options depending on your budget, the level of maintenance you are looking for and your décor preferences. Here are a few stairway ideas for the floor to get you started.

Carpeting

Carpeting gives the stairway and extra dose of warmth and coziness. It can also help in reducing noise when people are going up and down. If you have kids, carpeting acts as an extra safety feature in case they fall. Two main carpet ideas to choose from: full carpeting or stair runners.

Full carpeting  –  covers every inch of the stairway floor. It comes in handy if the stair flooring is not too appealing. If your stairs have a bit of wear and you don’t want to do a full remodel, full carpeting will cover the aging. On the downside, a full carpet is harder and more expensive to install. Talk about the costs with your contractor before you begin.

Carpet runners – leave the edges of the stairs visible. Runners are ideal when you don’t want to fully cover your beautiful stairway. Runners will add some warmth without hiding the flooring. Runners are easier and cheaper to install. If you are handy with home improvement projects you can even install the runner yourself. Most homeowners opt for boldly patterned runners to add detail and texture to an otherwise neutral space. Find a unique pattern that blends in with the surrounding décor but still draws the eyes towards the staircase. You can also opt for neutral non-patterned carpeting if you want a plain minimalist style. This is also where you can add some interest with texture.
