Many modern homes have stairs built in concrete, which is ideal for resurfacing. If you're updating a less sturdy staircase, make sure it's sound by cladding with marine plywood before affixing any sort of tiles, otherwise they might crack. 'You can re-clad a staircase in oak for about £500-£1,000, depending on the balustrade you choose,' says Vanessa Garrett, director of Broadleaf Timber. 'This is a much more accessible solution if you don't have a huge budget, would rather not embark on big structural changes or are limited by space.'

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.

The simplest type of staircase - a straight staircase supported at the top against a wall - is the easiest to open up because the timbers under the stair serve only to support the paneling. A straight staircase between two side walls (with access to the space from an adjoining room) is the most difficult to open up as both walls are likely to be load bearing. In this situation you need professional advice and help, and perhaps a building permit, before you can remove the walls.

Consider removing the understairs cupboard to give a more open-plan feel. Replace solid risers with glass to allow light to filter through to the space below. Swap solid balustrades or dated spindles for a more modern equivalent. Sheet glass creates a minimal look and allows light to flow more freely. Or choose a beautiful wooden balustrade for timeless style.

Instead, install a shelf on the wall behind the bed that can be used for bedtime reading material and an alarm clock. You can't compromise on the size of your bed, but you can try to make it work harder. Underbed boxes or beds with built-in drawers or shelves utilise the redundant area underneath. Flip-up beds also ensure space is put to good use. Remember, too, that low-level beds are less visually dominating than lofty princess-and-the-pea style ones.

These create a really modern look and a lot of newer houses will have them. As well as looking modern, they also create a sense of space which many people are looking for.

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.

They can be expensive, but if you have a studio and are going to be using it every day rather than in a guest room, then it's essential to invest. A pull-down bed combined with a pull-down desk can make a small spare room a really multifunctional space.
