'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.

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.

How much space you have will dictate what you can do, and unless you live in a modern building, it's difficult to go outside of these limits. If you are lucky enough to have more space, it may be possible to reorganise it to make better use of the available inches.
Mariyah Cobb Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-13 22:03:44. Whether you are customising a staircase or simply remodelling your stairs, your stairway should be the main focal point in your home. The material out of which your staircase treads or handrail are made can make a significant difference to the visual impact of your staircase. From expensive timbers such as Brazilian wood or other exotic hardwoods to the more affordable classic oak, there are a wide range of materials to choose from.

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?

You need a balustrade to comply with UK building regulations, but glass is unobtrusive and will still give that 'weightlessness' look. These staircases should always be designed and built by a specialist.

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.

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.

You should determine a rough budget before you go looking to see what is available. Remember that if you are interested in a custom staircase which has hand crafted elements you will end up paying much more than machine carved accents may be. You will also find that models which are curved may be more expensive because it is more labor intensive to produce them because they may need to me shaped or curved by hand and may take longer to make.
