Welcome to our image gallery portraying 25 custom wood stairs and stair railing ideas for your home.
The staircase is often located in the main foyer of the house, so it’s among the first things you and your guests will see on entering.
It’s certainly good to have it properly designed as a cool focal point that catches the eye at first sight. Stairs can be a powerful design element that enhances the visual appeal of your home and reflects your personal style.
There is a number of possibilities for the layout plan of your staircase. Straight stairs are a great option to go up and down the floors. They do, however, require a sufficient amount of linear space to be built. L-shaped and U-shaped stairs are another popular alternative that can be found in many homes.
Curved and spiral stairs can have a great visual effect in interior design. The main benefit of spiral stairs is that they take up very little space, but can be tight and difficult to navigate.
That is not the case with curved stairs, as they are usually wide enough and easy to walk up and down. They are, however, quite expensive and difficult to build.
All types of stairs can be beautifully designed to match an interior design style of your choosing. A proper selection of finishing materials and touches can turn your staircase into a classic masterpiece or a modern piece of art.
Here, we have put together a beautiful collection of inspirational images to give you great ideas for your stairway design.

I agree that well made wood railings can surely be a focal point of a home’s interior design. I’ve been thinking about getting a home renovation soon and my stairs would surely be something I’d like to pay attention to. Getting new wood railings would be very stunning to look at with the right polish.
