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?

It helps the inhabitants of the house to access other parts of the house, especially the ones located in the upper areas. Staircase acts as a path connecting one floor to another, usually to a mezzanine or a bedroom. Apart from this function, staircases also help in providing a graceful design element to the entire house. There are many types of staircases. Staircases are expensive and quite difficult to build. Hence, one must be sure while selecting the type of staircase to use.

Fitting an additional toilet or shower will ease pressure on the family bathroom and is particularly useful if you have small children or elderly relatives living with you. If done well, it should also increase the resale value of your property. Headroom can be problem, so take accurate measurements to ensure people will have enough room to stand upright. You may also want to consider installing a special sanitary pump if the pipes cannot be connected directly to the main waste system.

Knocking two rooms into one can provide a multifunctional area that will instantly feel bigger. You can then define zones with flooring or furniture. And bringing in more light wherever possible will also open up a room.

'Think about your priorities and how you need to use the space, then you can plan multifunctional zones.' Living in a restricted space means your home has to work much harder, but clever design, careful planning and a considered approach will allow it to run smoothly without compromising an inch of your own personal style.

'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.

These are usually in a single set or are set at an L shape, with one flight leading from the next. Most homes will have stairs like this as standard as they are very easy to install.

'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.'

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

Most people have a considerable amount of clothing, so first-class storage is essential. Built-in storage systems eat up less floor space than freestanding furniture. 'When planning your hanging space, measure the length of your clothes rail, then add 20 per cent,' advises Peter Friend of Hülsta.

Different kinds of staircases are available in different price ranges. The budget may also help one in choosing the style and material for the stairs. Setting a budget for this project will help in narrowing down one's choices more efficiently and quickly. For obtaining information regarding the amount needed for the same, window shopping at different hardware stores or home design stores in one's area and consulting for the cost may prove to be a good idea.
