It can be cut in a number of different ways that can change its appearance because they tend to bring out the grain or pattern of the wood in different ways. Traditionally, oak was used in any structures or items that needed to be able to resist decay and insect infestation. It was the wood of choice for sailing ships because oak trees can grow straight and this can provide you with long boards that are straight and true.

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.

Clever solutions: Good storage is key to keeping things uncluttered, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling cupboards will provide lots of space while requiring a relatively small footprint. 'Built-in benches can be crafted to include a surprising amount of hidden storage,' says Guy Morgan Harris. Make the most of hidden space by removing the partition wall between studs to create display storage, building shelving in the eaves, or even by using the void under your floorboards. 'Install a ring-pull latch and make ply boxes to store stuff in,' says Guy. Great for wine or toys 'In double-height properties, a mezzanine or platform can be a good way to separate living and sleeping areas,' says Elizabeth Wilhide, author of Small Spaces.

In contrast to more traditional wooden spindles or newel posts, glass panels allow natural light to filter in. In addition, glass panels can be a quirky addition to staircases and, when paired with wooden posts, can add a touch of elegance and give your staircase a unique charm.

'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.

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.

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.

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.
