It's a familiar remodeling conundrum: how to integrate a staircase when square footage is limited? It was our biggest challenge when we overhauled our house a few years ago. At the time, I associated spiral stairs with poorly thought-out, slapdash remodels. But if I'd seen these graceful solutions, I might have reconsidered.
