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.

One needs to see whether the house has enough space to accommodate a grand design, or have a limited space. If a house is small, it is best to select a design that does not take a large area of the house. On the other hand, if the place is bigger, one may opt for more attractive and bigger staircase.
Mariyah Cobb Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-09 22:50:01. With so many different types of staircases it can be hard to make a decision on what you would like. However, it makes sense to think about the practicalities that the types of staircases offer before making a choice. Do this and the ideal staircase for your home will become clear.

These kind of staircases are although used in public places like hospitals, schools and hotels, they can be used in a house too. The utilization of these stairs in a residence will depend on the amount of space it contains and its interior design. If enough space is not available, then staircases with landings are usually not needed.

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.

Children love hidden nooks and crannies, so converting the cupboard under the stairs can be a great alternative to an outdoor play house - especially in winter. If possible, cut windows and a doorway into the side panels of the staircase. This will allow light in and stop the den feeling claustrophobic. Strips of leftover curtain material stapled to the windows make a nice homely touch. Use a beanbag or some large cushions to create a comfy seating area. Finally, encourage your little ones to personalise their new hideaway with some books, toys and, if there is room, a small desk for drawing or writing.

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.
Gabriella Cabrera Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-11 18:33:09. You should never remove a newel post without consulting an architect or builder first, as it is a complicated structural conversion that may require a building permit. If you do go ahead and remove it without professional advice, the stairs above could fall down on you. However, you can remove the paneling which screens off the area under the stairs without any fear of collapse, and then plan how you use the space around the newel post.
Naya Pacheco Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-09 14:52:55. 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?
Melody Wooten Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-14 01:05:11. In terms of renovation, replacing a staircase is akin to knocking down a structural wall. But if your stairs are badly positioned, oppressive, or hinder light flow through the house, then it's worth considering, as a new flight can make all the difference. Always consult an architect or a specialist company, as it's critical that a new staircase fits in both proportionally and stylistically. 'A staircase is always interfacing with another area of the house, so there are lots of elements to consider,' says Richard McLane, co-director of staircase specialist Bisca. 'The middle section of the staircase can be quite straightforward, but the connections to rest of the building should be seamless.'
