Hitting your daily step count (aim for that 10,000, guys!) is easy in these Western Canadian homes.
Designer Clayton Salkeld (one of our 2016 Designers of the Year winners) removed interior walls to open up the space in this bright and airy kitchen; an ultra-thin staircase and glass banister further contribute to the visual flow. See more of this Winnipeg home.
In this Scandinavian-inspired Vancouver home, the colour palette is restricted to layers of white and grey—and a few black accents like the lithe, black-steel-picket hand railing. See more of this Falken-Reynolds-designed space.
Even outdoor stairways can have visual impact. Board-formed concrete adds texture and “makes the concrete material less precious,” says designer Matt McLeod of McLeod Bovell Modern Houses. See more of this jaw-dropping split-level.
The work of photographer Amanda Weil is featured on the glass wall beside the staircase in this Calgary home; the life-sized birch trees helped fulfill the homeowners’ desire to bring the outdoors in. See more of this spectacular dream home.
Here, the custom fir steps are accompanied by a powder-coated white railing, proving there’s beauty in simplicity. See more of this reno by Carscadden Stokes McDonald Architects.
When homeowner Shana Lum first moved in, the spiral staircase was covered in carpet. Now, stripped clean and lined with slip-proof rubber matting, it’s the highlight of the space. See more of this Sophie Burke-designed loft.
The floating staircase, lined with white-painted metal rails, are perfectly in tune with the architectural structure of this quirky laneway home. See more of this Campos Studio-designed home.
“They wanted the house to look timeless,” says designer Rus Collins. The elegant staircase, is just one example of how this look was achieved. See more of this Hamptons-style house.
This 110-year-old townhouse got a major overhaul thanks to the Falken Reynolds team, who maintained the home’s heritage quality by keeping the original wood banister. See more of this amazing reno.
