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.

Most often the actual stairs will look as though they are almost floating and create a really unique look.

Don't let precious square footage go to waste - instead reclaim every nook with some clever adaptations. Understair cupboards can become a dumping ground for unwanted items, so clear out the clutter and transform the cubby under the stairs into an extra cloakroom. Taking down a wall that encloses a staircase can really open things up. If you're installing a new staircase, think about incorporating big, deep drawers with push-click catches, or even create drawers in the risers of the steps. What better place to store slippers and shoes?

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.

There is a huge scope for different building materials, from glass structures that appear to float and modern steel staircases in bright, matt or brushed finishes, through to oak or teak. Consider combining materials and think about what will work best in your interior. 'The trend now is heading towards a more timeless look and I would recommend quality materials and simple details,' says Richard McLane. 'You can't change a staircase even as often as a kitchen, and it's such a major part of the house that it should transcend fashion.'

Despite being a major traffic thoroughfare, when it comes to design and decoration, staircases are one of the most frequently overlooked areas of a home,' says Hugo Tugman, architectural expert from Architect Your Home. 'As it's often the first thing people see when they walk through your front door, your staircase's visual impact can reflect upon the entire property.'

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.

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.

In contrast to more traditional wooden spindles or newel posts, glass panels allow natural light to filter in. In addition, glass panels can be a quirky addition to staircases and, when paired with wooden posts, can add a touch of elegance and give your staircase a unique charm.

If you are decorating an outside staircase, such as your porch or a gazebo you may want to consider using live, hanging flowers and other plants. Indeed, many people opt to create little flowerpot gardens on their exterior staircases, placing a different type of plant in a pot on each step. In order to make your staircase garden as attractive and decorative as possible, the types of pots that you use are the key. You should take care to match the pots to the exterior of your home, or choose ones that contrast in an attractive way. You may want to splurge on more expensive, high quality, expertly coordinated pots if you really want to make a dramatic impression with your decoration.
