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.

If you are lucky enough to have more space, it may be possible to reorganise it to make better use of the available inches.

A curved staircase will combine structural integrity with luxury, and can transform the focal point of your home. There are various options for curved staircases that you can choose from, including the more gently curved splayed. Whilst a splayed design is more understated compared to a fully curved staircase, the elegance of the design still makes a powerful statement. Either one or both strings of a staircase can be splayed, depending upon your individual preference.

Whether you opt for the majestic appearance of flared, bull nosed D steps or a more simplistic contemporary design involving stainless steel stair parts, your choice of stairway is a reflection of both your personality and taste. A well-designed staircase can also add to the overall value of your home, especially if your staircase brings together its different stylistic themes. The advantage of remodeling or customising your own stairs with staircase parts is that you can design a stairway that will complement your character and say something about you and the rest of your home whilst at the same time staying within your budget.

However, it makes sense to think about the practicalities that the types of staircases offer before making a choice. Do this and the ideal staircase for your home will become clear.

'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.

If a continuous handrail is used and it ends with a decorative volute, the staircase will have a curtail step at the bottom that accommodates the volute newel post and spindles that will support the volute. A bullnose step is curved on one or both sides, while the tread of a D-end step passes the newel post on the balustrade which then returns back into the side of the newel post.

'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.'
