Once you know what layout works best for you and your home, ensure that your three main work areas being your sink, fridge and ovencooktop are close enough to each other that they function well when cooking. Old schools of thought used to refer to this as the 'golden triangle' with each element positioned on one of the three sides of a triangle. This can be restrictive so the best approach is for all three elements to be no further than 3 metres apart so that they can be easily accessed during cooking. If you are considering a galley style kitchen which has two parallel work surfaces make sure that you have enough circulation space so two people can comfortable pass one another when in the kitchen together. Finally, when planning your layout ensure you have adequate room adjacent to your fridge, as most fridge doors open beyond 90 degrees. It sounds simple but many kitchens have poorly designed fridge recesses where the doors cannot open fully for cleaning and removal of drawers because they are not properly planned.

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.'
Harlow Cruz Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-12 05:33:56. 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.

Before you start, prepare for dust and disruption and remember that, unless you have a second staircase, you won't be able to access the upper levels while work is going on. A standard, straight staircase kit can cost as little as £250, but bespoke designs start at around £3,000. This could rise to £25,000 plus for a bespoke one with real wow factor. Issues such as access can up the final figure further (installing a staircase on the sixth floor will be more pricey than on lower levels, for example).

For a private home the width of each tread needs to be 600mm, with between 170 - 220mm for the rise between each tread. The main stair in a house really needs to be 190mm wide, with an optimum tread width of 800mm.

It has larger knots than those found in American White, which gives it a unique character, and its straight dense grain is typically a darker colour for a striking appearance and distinctive charm. American White Oak is a strong and heavy hardwood that is grown in the eastern states of the USA. It has a clean and, some would argue, more modern look to it than European. This is one of the main reasons why it is the most popular choice staircases in new properties and modernising renovation projects, where combining contemporary style with traditional elegance is often ideal. American White tends to vary in colour from a pale tan shade to a rich brown. Oak generally is an interesting and versatile material for many structural elements.
