That means kitchens will be seeing even more day to day activity, so wipe-clean surfaces and clutter-free worktops will be key to keeping any busy kitchen look great.

Once you know what layout works best for you and your home, ensure that your three main work areas being your sink, fridge and ovencooktop are close enough to each other that they function well when cooking. Old schools of thought used to refer to this as the 'golden triangle' with each element positioned on one of the three sides of a triangle. This can be restrictive so the best approach is for all three elements to be no further than 3 metres apart so that they can be easily accessed during cooking. If you are considering a galley style kitchen which has two parallel work surfaces make sure that you have enough circulation space so two people can comfortable pass one another when in the kitchen together. Finally, when planning your layout ensure you have adequate room adjacent to your fridge, as most fridge doors open beyond 90 degrees. It sounds simple but many kitchens have poorly designed fridge recesses where the doors cannot open fully for cleaning and removal of drawers because they are not properly planned.

As the modern trend for open plan living grows ever more popular, many people have removed the cupboard under the stairs and replaced it with an office or study area. The neatest way of doing this is to have custom-made shelves and a desk unit fitted. However, if your budget is modest, or you don't want to commit to a permanent office, you can simply install a free-standing desk and some shelving units.

From spirals to spindles, glass to granite, there's plenty of scope for statement making, but homeowners looking to transform their space are often unaware of the possibilities. The key to sorting out the design of your home is to understand your options and the impact building regulations may have.
Valerie Bullock Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-12 01:23:33. There are different building regulations that relate to various categories of staircases, from private homes to commercial properties; to inside stairways to stairs that are built outdoors. Obviously, in this article, we are talking about an internal staircase within a private home. The regulations appertaining to this incorporates the depth of each tread, the minimum size of each tread, and the most appropriate width for each tread. For a private home the width of each tread needs to be 600mm, with between 170 - 220mm for the rise between each tread. The main stair in a house really needs to be 190mm wide, with an optimum tread width of 800mm.

The strings are connected to the treads and risers of the stairs by three-way mitre joints to provide the staircase with additional strength. The cut strings of a staircase can be further embellished by adding return nosings to conceal the end grain of the treads to provide a clean, smooth and finished look. A return nosing is a rounded moulding used to trim the treads.

This means they only have one side that looks 'open' and many people prefer this style. Not only do these types of stairs look good they also create the impression of more space, so they can work well in small houses.

These kind of staircases are although used in public places like hospitals, schools and hotels, they can be used in a house too. The utilization of these stairs in a residence will depend on the amount of space it contains and its interior design. If enough space is not available, then staircases with landings are usually not needed.

Don't let precious square footage go to waste - instead reclaim every nook with some clever adaptations. Understair cupboards can become a dumping ground for unwanted items, so clear out the clutter and transform the cubby under the stairs into an extra cloakroom. Taking down a wall that encloses a staircase can really open things up. If you're installing a new staircase, think about incorporating big, deep drawers with push-click catches, or even create drawers in the risers of the steps. What better place to store slippers and shoes?

Helical stairs do not have a central pole and there is a handrail on both sides. If a spiral staircase is being used to access a single room, it must be at least 1500mm in diameter. But if the spiral goes up to more than one room, it is classed as a main staircase and needs to be at least 1900mm. 'Bear in mind that the opening in which your spiral fits needs to be 100mm wider than the spiral itself,' says Sally Noseda, director of Oakleaf Industries. Many spiral staircases are available in kit form from about £800, but only go up to 1600mm wide. A bespoke spiral would start at £3,000. It can be difficult to get furniture up and down, so move large items in before you install the stairs.
Gabriella Cabrera Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-11 18:33:09. 'Ideally, a staircase should be at least 80cm wide,' says Mark Dyson. The head room (the height between the level of a tread and the structure immediately above it) needs to be at least 2m, and the maximum pitch for a domestic flight is 42 degrees. Straight flights are limited to 36 consecutive steps. If there are more than 36, the flight should make a change of direction of at least 30 degrees.
