1. f. Set of steps that link two planes at different levels in a construction or terrain and that are used to go up and down
This is the first meaning of "ladder" in the RAE dictionary. As conceived today, however, stairs have much more than practicality in our homes. They are also a element with great aesthetic power, capable of transforming an entire space.
Stairs and railings go hand in hand for both safety and image. Both elements become, in many homes, a focal point. Something that should not surprise us in designs like the ones we show you today and that have as protagonists attractive metal railings.
The set of stairs that today we wanted to give prominence in Bezzia, shares certain characteristics. The first of them is, as we have already mentioned, the metal railings with which they are complemented. The second has to do with the style of the ensemble, which we could classify as contemporary. Beyond this first general classification, little or nothing has the metal railings that we point out today and that we could classify as ...
During the last decades, many design proposals have drawn from the industrial style Stairs are no exception and those designed to fit in one of those magazine New York lofts They have gained great prominence in homes both in this style and in contemporary style.
We can find them combined with concrete stairs to achieve a raw and genuinely industrial look. However, the combination of these with metal stairs or with wooden steps It is more common and also friendlier in contemporary family homes.
The metal railings of this style They drink from the industrial style but they present a more refined design. Black is still the most popular color choice, a safe value, but white stands out as an ideal proposition to highlight this element and soften it at the same time.
These metal railings have seemingly simple designs. Although the most appropriate word to qualify them is not simple. It would probably be more appropriate to say that they have a clean design. A design that despite its relative simplicity and precisely because of this, draws attention.
As you can see in the image immediately above this paragraph, railings with both straight and curved lines have caught our attention. In general terms, those with straight lines give strength and order to the space, being the preferred to decorate traditional spaces.
The curved railings, meanwhile, help to smooth and improve the flow of spaces. These are the favorites to decorate spaces with a rustic character or wabi sabi style in which there is no decorative competition near the staircase.
Either by its design or by its color there are metal railings that are terribly daring and with which few dare. Those who do, however, usually win by achieving a unique space that one unconsciously etches on their retina and never forgets.
The opaque stairs in vivid colors They are a great alternative to make this element the focal point of a modern and minimalist home decorated in white. Another of the proposals that we like the most is to bet on railings with geometric motifs and from floor to ceiling that integrate the stairs as if it were a large decorative set. These, in addition to allowing you to go up and down, can become shelves for your books in a large space to place your hanging plants and give a natural touch to the room
Another factor that influences a railing to attract attention is the contrast that it exerts with the staircase. A change in material, line or color can accentuate the prominence of the railing compared to the staircase. Do you like this type of metal railings to dress the staircase?
