If you are lucky enough to have more space, it may be possible to reorganise it to make better use of the available inches.

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.

'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.'

When home owners think about updating their stairs and hallway, they tend to focus only on tasks such as replacing the stair balustrade, handrails, spindles and newels for a fresh new look. But there is so much more that can be done to improve this area, especially if you are short of storage. One possible solution could be staring us right in the face - the space under the stairs. Here are a few suggestions for getting the most out of this all-too-often neglected resource.

In many instances the space under the staircase is already enclosed by paneling and opening it up simply involves removing the wood panels. Before you start though, it is important to assess the construction of your staircase.

The Mignon, meanwhile, features an open stair design in shades of stripped wood with minimal open treads. The diameter of this home space saving spiral staircase is between 500cm and 700cm. Another of their designs is the Marinara which also features open stair treads.

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.
Harlow Cruz Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-12 05:33:56. One concept for space saving stairs is to keep the stair flight straight so as to minimize the space they take up. In general, this is quite true. Stairs that have turns in them and unnecessary landings as the stairs rise do result in a lot of wasted space below and behind the stairs that you can do nothing with. The exception, however, is the spiral staircase that can look quite elegant, is easy to install, and uses the minimum of space. Detracting from this is the inability for disabled stair-lifts to be fitted - or, at least, I haven't come across one yet. It is also more of a chore to take furniture up and downstairs when the need for moving your furniture becomes apparent - as in moving house.
