'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.'

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.

'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.

Before you start, prepare for dust and disruption and remember that, unless you have a second staircase, you won't be able to access the upper levels while work is going on. A standard, straight staircase kit can cost as little as £250, but bespoke designs start at around £3,000. This could rise to £25,000 plus for a bespoke one with real wow factor. Issues such as access can up the final figure further (installing a staircase on the sixth floor will be more pricey than on lower levels, for example).

'And because the surface areas you are dealing with are more limited, you can choose more luxurious materials and high-end details. Small-space living also concentrates the mind as, with less room to play with, you need to be quite focused and selective - which is no bad thing.'

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.

One of the things that tends to come up time after time is the amount of space a traditional staircase takes - and the amount of space underneath the stairs that often tends to get wasted in many homes. However, it doesn't have to be like that: you really can do something about changing your traditional staircase for one of the many space saving staircases now available on the market - some of them retailing at quite economical prices. Why is it that the traditional staircase tends to take up so much space, though?

This means that the prioritization of situation needs is required as well. For instance, does the family living in the house include a baby? Or does the family has a senior member living with them or are there little kids living with the family. These factors need to be taken into account if one desires to provide comfort to himself or herself along with his or her family. One would not want to select a staircase design that provides no comfort. One needs to discuss with one's family members first so that proper decisions can be made about the design that satisfies all the requirements.

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?
