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.

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.

You can also use landings or even half landings (where stairs turn) to house a condensed work station or mini library,' says architect Mark Dyson. A compact office can be hidden in a cupboard, so it's instantly tidied away at the end of the day. A window ledge can be widened to create a cosy seat. Spiral stairs can be a great space saver, as can alternate-tread ones that allow staircases to rise at a steeper angle.

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.

As so many of the modern properties being built nowadays are smaller than their earlier counterparts, manufacturers are now making staircases in a range of sizes. Nowadays, you can obtain bespoke architectural solid wooden stairs in both contemporary designs and to fit a range of requirements; you can get traditional staircases, modern sweeping aluminum curves and modular spiral staircases - in fact, the range has probably never been as good. Part of this extensive choice can be attributed to the state-of-the-art technology and software for designing and profiling the new designs and bespoke sizes. One particular manufacturer, from Italy, is Mobirolo who is renowned for their innovative designs of home space saving staircases.

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?

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.

If you are decorating an outside staircase, such as your porch or a gazebo you may want to consider using live, hanging flowers and other plants. Indeed, many people opt to create little flowerpot gardens on their exterior staircases, placing a different type of plant in a pot on each step. In order to make your staircase garden as attractive and decorative as possible, the types of pots that you use are the key. You should take care to match the pots to the exterior of your home, or choose ones that contrast in an attractive way. You may want to splurge on more expensive, high quality, expertly coordinated pots if you really want to make a dramatic impression with your decoration.

'2.8m is the minimum width you can fit a compact but very useable kitchen in to,' says architect Mark Dyson. 'This will accommodate an under-counter fridge, oven, hob, sink with a concealed bin, a slimline dishwasher and storage while still providing the minimum distance requirement between the sink and hob.'

If you have basement at your log home then you might think of getting another extra staircase for that particular area of the house. If you have a low budget then you will surely prefer just the log staircase to the loft but with a higher budget you can choose to replace the regular staircase to the basement and get yourself a log staircase instead. It is after all important that the staircase of your home, and any staircase at that, does not look odd and out of place and so if for a few bucks you can get an additional staircase to match the floor plan of your entire home then maybe you should go for one.

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.

There is a huge scope for different building materials, from glass structures that appear to float and modern steel staircases in bright, matt or brushed finishes, through to oak or teak. 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. 'You can't change a staircase even as often as a kitchen, and it's such a major part of the house that it should transcend fashion.'
