Zoey Woodward Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-05 05:59:41. One concept for space saving stairs is to keep the stair flight straight so as to minimize the space they take up. In general, this is quite true. Stairs that have turns in them and unnecessary landings as the stairs rise do result in a lot of wasted space below and behind the stairs that you can do nothing with. The exception, however, is the spiral staircase that can look quite elegant, is easy to install, and uses the minimum of space. Detracting from this is the inability for disabled stair-lifts to be fitted - or, at least, I haven't come across one yet. It is also more of a chore to take furniture up and downstairs when the need for moving your furniture becomes apparent - as in moving house.

Knocking two rooms into one can provide a multifunctional area that will instantly feel bigger. You can then define zones with flooring or furniture. And bringing in more light wherever possible will also open up a room.
Selah Valentine Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-01 15:10:34. A staircase is an important part of a house. It helps the inhabitants of the house to access other parts of the house, especially the ones located in the upper areas. Staircase acts as a path connecting one floor to another, usually to a mezzanine or a bedroom. Apart from this function, staircases also help in providing a graceful design element to the entire house. There are many types of staircases. Staircases are expensive and quite difficult to build. Hence, one must be sure while selecting the type of staircase to use.

Choosing a manufacturer who focuses on making staircases for small spaces, such as Mobirolo, an Italian manufacture, you can choose to float your new staircase, incorporate modern materials such as aluminum, or plump for an elegant spiral staircase. Mobirolo have been making staircases exclusively for over 50 years. Their ranges include designs by Spiral and self-assembly kits including their Fusion range, plus Stilo, Venus, Optima and others. In fact, choices today are quite varied and, unless you proactively choose to keep it, you no longer need to climb that wooden hill to bed.

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.

Most often the actual stairs will look as though they are almost floating and create a really unique look. Whilst these stairs look great they are not very practical for a person with young children as they can be dangerous.

You should never remove a newel post without consulting an architect or builder first, as it is a complicated structural conversion that may require a building permit. If you do go ahead and remove it without professional advice, the stairs above could fall down on you. However, you can remove the paneling which screens off the area under the stairs without any fear of collapse, and then plan how you use the space around the newel post.

'The pitch of the roof can make constructing a flight difficult and, if this is the case, alternate-tread stairs can be the answer. These have one tread for the left foot and another for the right, and mean the angle of the stairs can be tighter, increased from 42 to 65 degrees.' Consider who will need to use them, as they are trickier to negotiate than standard stairs. It can also be hard to move furniture up and down them.

Fitting an additional toilet or shower will ease pressure on the family bathroom and is particularly useful if you have small children or elderly relatives living with you. If done well, it should also increase the resale value of your property. Headroom can be problem, so take accurate measurements to ensure people will have enough room to stand upright. You may also want to consider installing a special sanitary pump if the pipes cannot be connected directly to the main waste system.

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.'
