'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.

'2.8m is the minimum width you can fit a compact but very useable kitchen in to,' says architect Mark Dyson. 'This will accommodate an under-counter fridge, oven, hob, sink with a concealed bin, a slimline dishwasher and storage while still providing the minimum distance requirement between the sink and hob.'

If you have basement at your log home then you might think of getting another extra staircase for that particular area of the house. If you have a low budget then you will surely prefer just the log staircase to the loft but with a higher budget you can choose to replace the regular staircase to the basement and get yourself a log staircase instead. It is after all important that the staircase of your home, and any staircase at that, does not look odd and out of place and so if for a few bucks you can get an additional staircase to match the floor plan of your entire home then maybe you should go for one.

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.

These are usually in a single set or are set at an L shape, with one flight leading from the next. Most homes will have stairs like this as standard as they are very easy to install.

The minimum height for a rail is 90cm, and there is no need for one beside the bottom two steps. Spindles should be no more than 10cm apart.

'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.'

Clever solutions: Good storage is key to keeping things uncluttered, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards will provide lots of space while requiring a relatively small footprint. 'Built-in benches can be crafted to include a surprising amount of hidden storage,' says Guy Morgan Harris. Make the most of hidden space by removing the partition wall between studs to create display storage, building shelving in the eaves, or even by using the void under your floorboards. 'Install a ring-pull latch and make ply boxes to store stuff in,' says Guy. Great for wine or toys 'In double-height properties, a mezzanine or platform can be a good way to separate living and sleeping areas,' says Elizabeth Wilhide, author of Small Spaces. (Consult building regs first.). Wall-mount your TV and conceal your DVD and hi-fi. Use a chest instead of a coffee table for extra storage.

These create a really modern look and a lot of newer houses will have them. As well as looking modern, they also create a sense of space which many people are looking for.

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.

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.
