Ways to Keep The Staircase Out of Sight

A popular home design request in North Carolina is for open concept floor plans that keep the staircase out of the foyer - and out of sight.

Below are examples of Raleigh new homes with hidden staircases.

Hidden Staircase Floor Plan #1

Cary New Homes | Hidden Staircase Floor PlansThis home, a version of the Remington, is a one story floor plan with a staircase hidden from the foyer.

The barrel vaulted foyer opens into an elegant grand room with full-height wainscoting mantle above the see-through fireplace.

 

The staircase remains hidden until you stand in the far corner of the grand room, facing the formal dining room.

 

This home features two other fireplaces (one in the master bedroom and one in the outdoor screen room), an island kitchen open to sunroom and breakfast room, and a lower patio with curved brick staircase.

Hidden Staircase Floor Plan #2

 

Cary New Homes | Hidden Staircase Floor PlansIn this lodge home design, open concepts and upscale details are able to take center stage, with a hidden staircase.

 

Earthy, wood tones provide a natural highlight to everything from a plank ceiling in the living room to an enormous amount of storage in the large island kitchen of this version of The Lake House.

 

The foyer opens directly into the vaulted living room with full-height fireplace stone surround and built-in bookcases.

The hidden staircase in the Lake House starts adjacent to the laundry room and drop zone, just steps away from the garage entrance.

If you’re looking for the ultimate Lodge or Mountain house plan, you’re going to love this home.

Hidden Staircase Floor Plan #3

Cary New Homes | Hidden Staircase Floor PlansThe Country Manor combines country home features with modern must haves - flexible spaces and open rooms.

As you enter the Country Manor, the foyer flows into the oversized family room - where you can see directly through the two-sided fireplace and dual French doors into the courtyard patio.

There are two staircases in this home, one to the basement and one to the second story.

The staircase leading down to the basement is located down a corridor from the family room, out of sight from all major living areas.

The staircase leading up to the second story is also hidden, tucked past the kitchen pantry. You can see both staircases in the floor plan image below:

Hidden Staircase Floor Plan #4

 

Cary New Homes | Hidden Staircase Floor PlansMany homeowners want their staircase completely out of sight, at least until they've walked past the foyer.

This version of the Bryson is a great example.

The staircase is tucked between the kitchen and formal dining room, near the mudroom and powder room.

The stained hardwood steps and painted railings make a  statement - while taking a backseat to the great room and kitchen design.

This staircase is extremely functional:

It is located centrallly in the home, roughly equal distance to the front door, garage, and rear patio entrances. It is also located far from the master - to minimize noise and maximize privacy.

Hidden Staircase Floor Plan #5

Cary New Homes | Hidden Staircase Floor PlansDo you love the open, inviting feel of second story overlooks?

You can tuck the staircase to one side of the great room, and still have an overlook above.

The staircase placement the Carwile - adjacent to the master bedroom - was designed for a couple with small children.

Their master bedroom has easy access to the second story bedrooms - but it is not located direct under those bedrooms, to minimize overhead noise.
