Unless your kitchen is in dire need of a complete workover, then refurbishment rather than replacement offers an affordable kitchen design solution. In fact, it fits in rather well with the entire principle of 'working with what you've got' that has become the mantra of many interior designers during this period of economic austerity. It's actually more fashionable to refurbish, and is also a more environmentally friendly way of tackling the problem too. Because you're keeping the basic framework of your kitchen it means that less waste is heading off to landfill sites, so a refurbishment kitchen design also adheres to the replace, reuse, and recycle principle of the green movement.

With quarter-turn, half-turn, and some straight staircases that extend onto a landing, the top of the stairs and intermediate landings are supported by a large timber post called a newel. You can easily identify it because it is much bigger than the timbers that support the understair area, and usually lines up with the corner post of the stairs above.

You should determine a rough budget before you go looking to see what is available. Remember that if you are interested in a custom staircase which has hand crafted elements you will end up paying much more than machine carved accents may be. You will also find that models which are curved may be more expensive because it is more labor intensive to produce them because they may need to me shaped or curved by hand and may take longer to make.

'It's imperative you choose a quality, hard-wearing carpet - 80 per cent wool to 20 per cent nylon,' says Rupert Anton, marketing director of The Carpet Foundation. 'Avoid loop-pile carpets as they "grin" (open up when bent) and are more slippery.' Use a good underlay over both tread and riser and fit the carpet so the pile runs down the stairs. It's also possible to use a strip of carpet as a runner. Look at Ryalux, which does carpet to your width. For runners, see Roger Oates or The Carpet Library's Hartley runners, which are reversible so last twice as long.

However it can also be expensive so you may want to think about using it in specific areas. If you are going to be using carpet on your stairs you may be more interested in saving money by building the rest of the staircase out of another type of wood and save the oak for trim and railings.

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.

There is a huge scope for different building materials, from glass structures that appear to float and modern steel staircases in bright, matt or brushed finishes, through to oak or teak. Consider combining materials and think about what will work best in your interior. 'The trend now is heading towards a more timeless look and I would recommend quality materials and simple details,' says Richard McLane. 'You can't change a staircase even as often as a kitchen, and it's such a major part of the house that it should transcend fashion.'
