The types of interior staircases

When planning the construction of an interior staircase, we suggest you delve into the different types available so you can choose the most functional model for your rooms.

The most common and widespread ones are three: ramp, cantilever, and spiral.

The former, also known as open staircases, are the most widely used. This is due to two specific features: functionality and convenience. Such elements are also enhanced by the elegance of this type of staircase, which can be made in three formats, namely linear, U-shaped or L-shaped.

Only disadvantage, they require more space than other types. Therefore, we recommend that you rely on this solution only if the room in which you want to build such a structure is large.

Cantilever staircases, on the other hand, differ in that they are self-supporting, that is, the steps are attached directly to the wall or supported by an iron stringer.

The main feature of these staircases is their lightness, which allows them to be adapted to any type of environment. In addition, they do not require large spaces and can be made of various materials.

Finally, spiral staircases are the types of interior staircases that save you the most space in your home: they can be made on either a square or circular plan and are distinguished by the fact that they can be installed anywhere in the room.

Marble also has the advantage of being available in multiple shades and colors, so it will be easier to find the color effect that best suits the style of your home.
