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?

The head room (the height between the level of a tread and the structure immediately above it) needs to be at least 2m, and the maximum pitch for a domestic flight is 42 degrees. Straight flights are limited to 36 consecutive steps. If there are more than 36, the flight should make a change of direction of at least 30 degrees.

From spirals to spindles, glass to granite, there's plenty of scope for statement making, but homeowners looking to transform their space are often unaware of the possibilities. The key to sorting out the design of your home is to understand your options and the impact building regulations may have.

If you're tired of having to pick your way over discarded bags and coats in the hallway when you get home, think about converting the area under your staircase into a cloakroom. Even if there's only a shallow nook, it's usually sufficient for a few cubby holes with hooks for hats, umbrellas and coats. Try adding some wicker baskets underneath for small items such as scarves, gloves and key rings - you'll find it so much easier to keep everything tidy. If the whole area under the stairs is accessible, consider turning it into a clothes cupboard. Just fit some shelves and hanging rails round the edge to provide useful storage for seasonal clothing, and free up space in your bedroom wardrobe at the same time. This is also a great place to store boots, trainers, gym kits, golf clubs, tennis racquets and ski equipment.

There are several effective ways that you can accomplish this; however, one of the least expensive and easiest to customize to your own personal taste is to utilize faux flower garlands. These versatile decorative aids are available in virtually any flower variety that you can imagine, and the prices can be very, very reasonable. However, they also range to the high-end, and therefore you can certainly find not just the variety of flower you are looking for, but you can also get the appropriate quality to mesh seamlessly with your décor. The traditional way to utilize these garlands is to wrap them around your banister, weaving the garland through the rails.

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.

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.

'And because the surface areas you are dealing with are more limited, you can choose more luxurious materials and high-end details. Small-space living also concentrates the mind as, with less room to play with, you need to be quite focused and selective - which is no bad thing.'

You may want to consider the rest of your interior design before you select a specific staircase design. This is because some styles of railing are very ornate and traditional and may not match a plainer, more modern interior.
