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?

Give equal consideration to what you would like your kitchen to do functionally, as well as how you would like it to look, a good design outcome must exhibit both creativity and functionality. For example what do you like to cook and how would your kitchen best do this? Do you have two people cooking in the kitchen together? Do you have any large appliances that need to be accommodated or additional storage needs? No point spending money on a beautiful new kitchen if you still have the same old storage problems, so write yourself a checklist of all your requirements. Secondly, as a good visual reference invest in some books or magazines that give you some inspiration and ideas of what your ideal kitchen would look like.

'The pitch of the roof can make constructing a flight difficult and, if this is the case, alternate-tread stairs can be the answer. These have one tread for the left foot and another for the right, and mean the angle of the stairs can be tighter, increased from 42 to 65 degrees.' Consider who will need to use them, as they are trickier to negotiate than standard stairs. It can also be hard to move furniture up and down them.
