But, as Elizabeth Wilhide, author of Small Spaces, points out, 'Professional cooks prefer a more compact kitchen as they are easier to work in.' If in doubt, get some professional design input and keep things streamlined; a smaller space will benefit from being as fuss-free as possible. Choose fitted units, which are the best option for making a small space work efficiently.

Although some may see a staircase as a purely practical feature, in fact, your staircase can dramatically alter the character and feel of your home. In particular, your stairway can significantly contribute to the first impression of house guests, particularly if it is the first thing they see when they come to visit. Before refurbishing or designing a staircase, it is important to think about the overall result. Are you going to have an open, sweeping staircase or an enclosed stairway that conforms to the internal structure of your home? This decision is likely to affect the type of stair parts you require to complete your staircase design.

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.

However, it makes sense to think about the practicalities that the types of staircases offer before making a choice. Do this and the ideal staircase for your home will become clear.

If the water supply and drain lines are close, you could install a shower or toilet, or even turn the area into a mini-utility room, fitted with a washing machine and dryer.

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.

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 you are lucky enough to have more space, it may be possible to reorganise it to make better use of the available inches.
Mariyah Cobb Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-12 15:34:16. 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.
