Here is how we install stairs with built in landings. There are several advantages if you have your landings built into your stairs - no support posts is the biggest! This creates the cleanest look, obstruction free. Enjoy!
Helical stairs have to be one of our favorites. They are the definition of ultra-modern and look amazing. Although very expensive, these stairs will be the focal point of any home.
What is the difference between a circular vs helical stair?
"As the word “helix” implies, helical staircases are designed in a helical shape. Helical staircases differ from spiral staircases as they do not have a newel, and handrails are present on both sides. They are also not limited to a circular staircase, and may be built in an elliptical or oval shape. Without a newel for support, better materials and/or construction is required for helical stairs compared to spiral stairs.
Because of its shape, it is possible to build two helical staircases while occupying the same vertical space, allowing two persons access to a staircase at the same time. Fire escapes are a good example displaying the use of a double helix stair." * The Staircase Experts, UK

These stairs are personally my favorite. I love their clean looks and ultra-modern presence. The last 2 pictures in the gallery show how these stairs are designed and what is hidden behind the walls which gives the stair its strength. These stairs are expensive but in my opinion, pieces of art!
How cool are these stairs? These might not be for everyone however I think they are masterpieces! It is pretty incredible what you can do with glass!
