Need to get smart about the staircase design in your small home? Of course you do! A second level is a fabulous idea for a small home. After all—it's always good to build upwards. But it's not always easy to accommodate a standard staircase design in the hallway when dealing with a lack of floor space. So what are the options?

Well today, we've gathered up some of the most creative, space-savvy and simply brilliant small staircase designs around. We bet they'll inspire you! Let's have a look at them…

1. A movable staircase

This staircase is portable so it can be pushed out of the way when not in use.

2. A striking geometric design

This staircase also acts as a striking decorative element in the small home.

3. The super steep staircase

When short of floor space, it always helps to up the incline of the staircase and make it really steep.

This little staircase has a platform that adds extra storage space.

5. A minimalist white staircase

A super minimalist white staircase for a modern little home.

6. The edgy design

An edgy design that uses the corner walls as you might a banister.

7. A staircase with perfect little storage nooks

Compact homes need smart storage and the little nooks in this staircase provide the perfect storage space.

8. A combination of staircase and study

Multifunctional furniture is always the way to go in a small home. This staircase has a study built into it.

9. A classic spiral design

The classic solution for a small home is a spiral design. This design is positively inspiring.

10. The staircase with a turn

A 90 degree turn is a good solution when you don't have space for a straight flight of stairs.

Chunky wooden treads feel solid and homely. They are good to counter the potential danger of a staircase with a very steep slope.

12. A two way staircase without a banister

Ditching the banister and using a two way design makes for a very slick little staircase here.

13. A combination of designs

Is this a staircase, a seat or a desk? Who cares, it can be all at once.

14. Small with a single banister

This little staircase has a banister on one side. It provides the perfect balance of practicality and simplicity.

15. A staircase/ladder with a built-in rail

This design is almost like a ladder rather than a staircase. What makes it so good is the built-in railing on the side.
