There are different building regulations that relate to various categories of staircases, from private homes to commercial properties; to inside stairways to stairs that are built outdoors.

This decision is likely to affect the type of stair parts you require to complete your staircase design.

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?

It can be cut in a number of different ways that can change its appearance because they tend to bring out the grain or pattern of the wood in different ways.

It was the wood of choice for sailing ships because oak trees can grow straight and this can provide you with long boards that are straight and true.

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.
