You may use them dozens of times a day, but most staircases tend to be simply functional rather than a standout style feature of a property.

Here, we reveal seven homes for sale where that idea is turned upside down and the staircases have been transformed into a unique area of their own.

They include bespoke staircases, such as the timber spiral one at a two-bedroom flat in East London, which is featured in our list.
