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.

This means they only have one side that looks 'open' and many people prefer this style. Not only do these types of stairs look good they also create the impression of more space, so they can work well in small houses.

Consider removing the understairs cupboard to give a more open-plan feel. Replace solid risers with glass to allow light to filter through to the space below. Swap solid balustrades or dated spindles for a more modern equivalent. Sheet glass creates a minimal look and allows light to flow more freely. Or choose a beautiful wooden balustrade for timeless style.

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.

Mariyah Cobb Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-12 15:34:16. Whether you are customising a staircase or simply remodelling your stairs, your stairway should be the main focal point in your home. The material out of which your staircase treads or handrail are made can make a significant difference to the visual impact of your staircase. From expensive timbers such as Brazilian wood or other exotic hardwoods to the more affordable classic oak, there are a wide range of materials to choose from.

'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.'

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.

Mobirolo have been making staircases exclusively for over 50 years. Their ranges include designs by Spiral and self-assembly kits including their Fusion range, plus Stilo, Venus, Optima and others. In fact, choices today are quite varied and, unless you proactively choose to keep it, you no longer need to climb that wooden hill to bed.

You need a balustrade to comply with UK building regulations, but glass is unobtrusive and will still give that 'weightlessness' look. These staircases should always be designed and built by a specialist.
