With quarter-turn, half-turn, and some straight staircases that extend onto a landing, the top of the stairs and intermediate landings are supported by a large timber post called a newel. You can easily identify it because it is much bigger than the timbers that support the understair area, and usually lines up with the corner post of the stairs above.

'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.'

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.

This means that the prioritization of situation needs is required as well. For instance, does the family living in the house include a baby? Or does the family has a senior member living with them or are there little kids living with the family. These factors need to be taken into account if one desires to provide comfort to himself or herself along with his or her family. One would not want to select a staircase design that provides no comfort. One needs to discuss with one's family members first so that proper decisions can be made about the design that satisfies all the requirements.

A curved staircase will combine structural integrity with luxury, and can transform the focal point of your home. There are various options for curved staircases that you can choose from, including the more gently curved splayed. Whilst a splayed design is more understated compared to a fully curved staircase, the elegance of the design still makes a powerful statement. Either one or both strings of a staircase can be splayed, depending upon your individual preference.

'Hide the appliances behind a folding door.' Keep cleaning materials, chopping boards and spices to hand with some custom-made splashback storage. All you need is 15cm at the back of the work surface to create super-slim storage for these everyday essentials.

If a continuous handrail is used and it ends with a decorative volute, the staircase will have a curtail step at the bottom that accommodates the volute newel post and spindles that will support the volute. A bullnose step is curved on one or both sides, while the tread of a D-end step passes the newel post on the balustrade which then returns back into the side of the newel post.

However you decide to use the space, aim to unify it with the surrounding decor by painting it in the same colors or papering it in similar wallpaper. Continue the existing floor covering, if possible, or keep closely to its tone and style, even if you are using the space for storage. That way the newly converted area looks a planned part of your home, rather than an afterthought.

'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.'

'Don't forget low-level storage,' says Graeme MacLaren of Dinwiddie MacLaren Architects. 'Plinth drawers are perfect for storing flat items such as baking trays or tea towels.' Max the feeling of light in a space-starved kitchen with reflective surfaces, such as high-gloss lacquer, a glass worktop, chrome or even a mirrored splashback.
