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.

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.

Don't let precious square footage go to waste - instead reclaim every nook with some clever adaptations. Understair cupboards can become a dumping ground for unwanted items, so clear out the clutter and transform the cubby under the stairs into an extra cloakroom. Taking down a wall that encloses a staircase can really open things up. If you're installing a new staircase, think about incorporating big, deep drawers with push-click catches, or even create drawers in the risers of the steps. What better place to store slippers and shoes?

Consider combining materials and think about what will work best in your interior. 'The trend now is heading towards a more timeless look and I would recommend quality materials and simple details,' says Richard McLane.
