Different types of interior staircases for a house.

If you are going to build or refurbish a multi-storey home, one of the aspects you should pay most attention to is the type of interior staircase that will connect each of the different levels of the house.

And although this decision depends largely on purely architectural factors and space distribution, it is good that you know what options exist for you to value them, since both practically and aesthetically, the staircase chosen can make the interior of your home change significantly. For this reason, today we bring you in this post the types of interior staircases that can be built in a single-family home. 

Interior staircases: what options do you have?

It is clear that it is a question of choosing the staircase that best suits the space and takes up the least surface area so that it does not take up square metres from other rooms, but never to the detriment of comfort and functionality when it comes to using it to go up and down. In short, it is a question of finding the perfect combination of a beautiful, comfortable and space-optimised staircase. But what are the options available to us?

1.- Simple staircase:

These are the most common interior stairs as they are the simplest and easiest, and therefore cheapest, to build. They join one height with another in a straight line and the only thing you will have to choose is the type of material with which they will be covered. Remember that at gHouse we have a team of carpenters who can make custom-made furniture and also cladding for spaces such as interior staircases.

These stairs are easy to design and build, and allow you to take advantage of the space underneath where you can build built-in wardrobes or even a toilet.

2.- Single flight staircase:

These staircases are similar to the previous ones with the difference that they are built in several flights, all of them straight. In other words, we could say that it is a staircase made up of two or three flights of simple stairs. This means that the staircase between one floor and another is L-shaped or even U-shaped or Z-shaped.

It is constructed in this way for reasons of space distribution, the presence of beams or load-bearing walls or other architectural reasons. The space underneath can be used on each floor, and the straight shape, even in sections, makes construction easier and less expensive.

3.- Spiral staircase:

They are very aesthetic and take up less space than any other staircase, as well as fulfilling the function of connecting two floors when there is not much space for a staircase. However, they are not so advantageous from the point of view of their use, since if they are very narrow they can be more uncomfortable to go up and down.

They are not practical for a house with children where the rooms are on the upper floors: climbing up with a baby in your arms can be difficult if the staircase is not very wide.

4.- Floating staircase:

The peculiarity of these stairs does not lie so much in their shape, which can be simple or in sections, even spiral, but in their finish: they are stairs that are not closed, that is to say, it seems that the steps float above the space without there being a back closure of the steps.

They are very suitable in small spaces to reduce the visual weight of the staircase and allow it to appear lighter and let in light to give a greater sense of spaciousness.

5.- Offset staircase:

This staircase is halfway between a simple staircase and a spiral staircase, and can fit very well in modern house designs where there is not much space for the staircase. Its main peculiarity is that it looks halfway between the two types of interior stairs, something that makes it very beautiful and more comfortable than the spiral staircase.


It is obvious that, regardless of the type of interior staircase you choose or the design of the house itself determines that it should be built, the cladding material will be decisive in the final result both in terms of aesthetics and comfort of use. In this sense, you already know that, as well as being one of the best architectural studios in Mallorca, we have a team specialised in custom-made carpentry.
