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.

In the case of conventional houses, one can either choose stone or wood for the staircase and for the modern homes, one can go for glass or metal. One needs to ensure that the material chosen suits the interior design of the house. The durability of the chosen material must also be considered. Poor quality materials must not be used for making staircases.

As so many of the modern properties being built nowadays are smaller than their earlier counterparts, manufacturers are now making staircases in a range of sizes. Nowadays, you can obtain bespoke architectural solid wooden stairs in both contemporary designs and to fit a range of requirements; you can get traditional staircases, modern sweeping aluminum curves and modular spiral staircases - in fact, the range has probably never been as good. Part of this extensive choice can be attributed to the state-of-the-art technology and software for designing and profiling the new designs and bespoke sizes. One particular manufacturer, from Italy, is Mobirolo who is renowned for their innovative designs of home space saving staircases.

Whether it is staircases from a budget kit that, put together, forms a contemporary spiral from as little as 100cm to as much as 800cm or straight and winding stairs that incorporates conventional with contemporary styling, home space saving staircases are now available to fit the bill. Apart from the timeless elegance of wood, they are now being manufactured in aluminum, glass, or steel - with either open or closed treads. In fact, lack of space no longer precludes a contemporary design being fitted as home space saving staircases have now come into their own.

It has larger knots than those found in American White, which gives it a unique character, and its straight dense grain is typically a darker colour for a striking appearance and distinctive charm. American White Oak is a strong and heavy hardwood that is grown in the eastern states of the USA. It has a clean and, some would argue, more modern look to it than European. This is one of the main reasons why it is the most popular choice staircases in new properties and modernising renovation projects, where combining contemporary style with traditional elegance is often ideal. American White tends to vary in colour from a pale tan shade to a rich brown. Oak generally is an interesting and versatile material for many structural elements.

Most people just put up with what they have, decorate the staircase and find the best use they can for the under-stairs' area. However, if you are in the market for a new staircase, there is quite an extensive range of home space saving staircases on the market. The cheapest on the market - and also the smallest - is the Karina model which combines either a light or a dark beech wood used for the treads with one of three other colors. As well as being the smallest on the market the Karina is narrow enough to be used as a loft ladder replacement or in other spaces that are too narrow for other, more conventional staircases.

That way you know the quality and look of your stairs will remain for many years. American White Oak or European Oak are particularly popular choices for curved staircases. However, they can actually produce staircases using a variety of different timbers, including softer pine woods such as Whitewood and Redwood.

If the water supply and drain lines are close, you could install a shower or toilet, or even turn the area into a mini-utility room, fitted with a washing machine and dryer.

If you are decorating an outside staircase, such as your porch or a gazebo you may want to consider using live, hanging flowers and other plants. Indeed, many people opt to create little flowerpot gardens on their exterior staircases, placing a different type of plant in a pot on each step. In order to make your staircase garden as attractive and decorative as possible, the types of pots that you use are the key. You should take care to match the pots to the exterior of your home, or choose ones that contrast in an attractive way. You may want to splurge on more expensive, high quality, expertly coordinated pots if you really want to make a dramatic impression with your decoration.

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.

Oak is a great material for building visible items such as stairs and railings because they are often highly visible in your home. Knowing a bit about the various styles which are available can ensure that you make the right choice for your home.

In contrast to more traditional wooden spindles or newel posts, glass panels allow natural light to filter in. In addition, glass panels can be a quirky addition to staircases and, when paired with wooden posts, can add a touch of elegance and give your staircase a unique charm.
