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.

Most often the actual stairs will look as though they are almost floating and create a really unique look. Whilst these stairs look great they are not very practical for a person with young children as they can be dangerous.

In many instances the space under the staircase is already enclosed by paneling and opening it up simply involves removing the wood panels. Before you start though, it is important to assess the construction of your staircase.

'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.

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.

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.

Remember that a seamless interior where one component flows into another can be a great way to open up a space and make it seem larger. This is because the eye simply slides over the different areas of the home and makes it seem as if it is one large expanse.

'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.'

With a little thought you could turn it into an efficient storage area, designed around your particular needs; or you could open it up into a room or hallway, thus increasing available space and giving your home a more open-plan feel.
