It can be cut in a number of different ways that can change its appearance because they tend to bring out the grain or pattern of the wood in different ways. Traditionally, oak was used in any structures or items that needed to be able to resist decay and insect infestation. It was the wood of choice for sailing ships because oak trees can grow straight and this can provide you with long boards that are straight and true.

In some older properties, built towards the end of the 19th century, you often find the staircases are too steep and the treads too narrow for a comfortable footfall, giving you the impression of falling backwards as you reach the top of the stair. This is hardly safe for an elderly person to climb safely, or for a young child to mount. Modern staircases are certainly more attractive but, if you need to be convinced into replacing your old traditional staircase with a modern one, perhaps the emphasis on health and safety could convince you?

Although some may see a staircase as a purely practical feature, in fact, your staircase can dramatically alter the character and feel of your home. In particular, your stairway can significantly contribute to the first impression of house guests, particularly if it is the first thing they see when they come to visit. Before refurbishing or designing a staircase, it is important to think about the overall result. Are you going to have an open, sweeping staircase or an enclosed stairway that conforms to the internal structure of your home? This decision is likely to affect the type of stair parts you require to complete your staircase design.

From spirals to spindles, glass to granite, there's plenty of scope for statement making, but homeowners looking to transform their space are often unaware of the possibilities.

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

If noise is an issue, glass is an excellent absorber of sound, so having glass panels as part of your staircase can be an effective sound-proofing device. If sound-proofing is not a big concern, creating an old world feel with wooden spindles or railings can give a staircase a classic, yet elegant feel. One way in which this can be done is by using spindles and oil-tipped bronze railings, which is a less expensive yet striking way of embellishing a staircase for those looking for an affordable option in a tough economy.

Instead, install a shelf on the wall behind the bed that can be used for bedtime reading material and an alarm clock. You can't compromise on the size of your bed, but you can try to make it work harder. Underbed boxes or beds with built-in drawers or shelves utilise the redundant area underneath. Flip-up beds also ensure space is put to good use. Remember, too, that low-level beds are less visually dominating than lofty princess-and-the-pea style ones.

As the modern trend for open plan living grows ever more popular, many people have removed the cupboard under the stairs and replaced it with an office or study area. The neatest way of doing this is to have custom-made shelves and a desk unit fitted. However, if your budget is modest, or you don't want to commit to a permanent office, you can simply install a free-standing desk and some shelving units.

'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.
