Upstair And Upstairs

Note:

Have you ever wondered what the differences between UPSTAIR and UPSTAIRS are?

 

Answer:
According to TheFreeDictionary.com, UPSTAIR can only be used as an adjective. For example: The upstair rooms in my house are very big.

Whereas UPSTAIRS can be used as a noun, an adjective and an adverb. ( Dictionary.com )
For example:
The upstairs of this house is entirely rented. (NOUN)
Please go upstairs for our meeting! (ADVERB)
You can get discounts for the upstairs apartment. (ADJECTIVE)

However, UPSTAIRS is the word that people use more frequently. In my opinion, UPSTAIR sounds a bit poetic.
