'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.'

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.

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?

'In reality, the average bathroom in the UK is around the size of a king-size bed, so it's essential to make the most of every inch.' Compact ceramics ranges can be a real boon. 'Basins that are wider than they are deep can solve all kinds of problems,' continues Robin. 'And a corner toilet cistern can allow you to have a mini en-suite in the corner of a bedroom, with a shower, basin and toilet all in the space of a regular corner bath. Or choose a compact tub, which can free up room for something else.' Check out the Space and Concept ranges by Ideal Standard.
