Double Landing Stairs

 
 

This L-shaped set of stairs has a landing at the bottom, as well as a landing located in the middle of the stairs.

The lower landing gives you the illusion that you're stepping down into the room and could have been eliminated by using one more step.

Don't forget that a lower landing could also be added to a stairway quite easily to provide you with a platform.

Safety Problem with Straight Stairs

If you were at the top of a straight set of stairs and fell down, there's not much to stop you from falling or sliding all the way down the stairway.

However on the L-shaped stairway, the stair landing provides you with a stopping point.
