A style that is difficult to define because of its fluid nature, contemporary stairs essentially reflect current trends. As such, they're made with a combination of styles and materials. The art lies in knowing which trends to draw from.
Contemporary staircase design often encompasses the following elements:
- A mixture of elements from modern and classic styles (such as timber treads with a wrought iron balustrade)
- Designs that blend into the existing decor of the home
- Designs that have a simplistic aesthetic appeal
