    Too bad most of your stairs pictures are not up to code as far as having no hand railing at all. The one that does, but just has a single rail with the entire area below the rail that is open isn’t code either. There needs to be balists ( vertical ) rail no farther than every 3″ to keep kids from falling off the stairs. All your other ideas are great, just a safety & code violation I wanted to point out. It probably varies state to state but regardless of that its still a safety issue to have an open exposed staircase.
