Staircase Understairs. Saturday , October 20th , 2018 - 19:09:54 PM
In terms of renovation, replacing a staircase is akin to knocking down a structural wall. But if your stairs are badly positioned, oppressive, or hinder light flow through the house, then it's worth considering, as a new flight can make all the difference. Always consult an architect or a specialist company, as it's critical that a new staircase fits in both proportionally and stylistically. 'A staircase is always interfacing with another area of the house, so there are lots of elements to consider,' says Richard McLane, co-director of staircase specialist Bisca. 'The middle section of the staircase can be quite straightforward, but the connections to rest of the building should be seamless.'
Spiral staircases are great if you are short on space. They are good for putting in the corner of the room as they rise straight up. In addition to this a spiral staircase will only need a small amount of floor space and will not cut across the room. With this in mind many people will opt for a spiral shaped staircase for access to an attic room.
'Built-in bathroom cabinets don't need to be any more than 4in deep,' says architect Mark Dyson. 'It's possible to dismantle a stud wall and replace it with structural MDF carcases to create storage without devouring precious floor space.' 'Lift units off the floor,' says Guy Morgan Harris. 'A room looks bigger if you can see the whole floor up to the walls.' 'Mirrors can be used to great effect, but too much can look kitsch,' says Mark Dyson. 'An L-shaped mirror [that goes round a corner] can quadruple the feeling of volume.' Boxed-in cisterns provide the opportunity to create extra storage, and why not reclaim the area under a built-in bath with bespoke drawers for towels or bath toys? 'We installed a raised walk-in shower where the floor lifts up to reveal a bath,' says architect Paul McAneary. 'It also turns into a steam cabin, so it's multifunctional and compact.'
