Black and white staircase ideas: How to achieve monochrome colour palette in your hallway

Black and white stairs are a great way to add a modern touch to your home interior, complementing almost any colour palette. If you prefer minimalist design and neutral tones but want to add a stand-out feature to your hallway, consider this monochrome aesthetic in your staircase design.

Black and white stair designs

When renovating an existing staircase, it’s remarkably easy to replace cosmetic components to achieve a whole new look. Explore below some of our favourite black and white stair ideas, from classic wood to contemporary steel.

Black wooden staircases

Achieve a rich natural wood finish with black wooden staircases. This bespoke design below is finished in our exclusive Jacobean oak, blending traditional and contemporary styles. Black wooden staircases are a simple way to add drama and depth to any staircase structure, from classic straight stairs to L-shaped, U-shaped and curved configurations.

Black and white painted stairs

If you live in a period property and want to give a modern update to some of its original features, try a black and white painted staircase. You can be as creative as you like with painted stairs! For larger hallways with plenty of natural light, recladding and painting your entire staircase black will transform it into a striking design feature.

For a monochrome look that will keep your space feeling bright, contrast newel caps and handrails in a deeper shade, while allowing the rest of the staircase to remain bright and airy.

Modern black and white stairs

Black steel staircases can give your home the ultimate modern update. The industrial look of steel will complement a minimalist aesthetic, whichever design you choose. Opt for narrow steel spindles or combine steel bannisters with glass panels to keep the space feeling bright and airy.

Make your stairs the focal point of your hallway, landing, living space or bedroom with a curved steel staircase. Or why not introduce some contrasting textures to your stairs by combining wood and steel in the design? Let the natural wood finish show, or paint the treads white for a complete monochrome look.

“We would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation”

From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.

Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull

“Impressed by the whole process”

From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.

Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire

“I cannot recommend this company enough”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham

“The craftsmanship is superb”

From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.

“Effortless from start to finish”

From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

Cherry Murdoch, London

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

Richard Smith, Surrey
