Staircase Understairs. Saturday , October 20th , 2018 - 10:49:44 AM
If noise is an issue, glass is an excellent absorber of sound, so having glass panels as part of your staircase can be an effective sound-proofing device. If sound-proofing is not a big concern, creating an old world feel with wooden spindles or railings can give a staircase a classic, yet elegant feel. One way in which this can be done is by using spindles and oil-tipped bronze railings, which is a less expensive yet striking way of embellishing a staircase for those looking for an affordable option in a tough economy.
If you prefer carpet to bare wood or glass, make sure you buy one that's suitable for stairs. 'It's imperative you choose a quality, hard-wearing carpet - 80 per cent wool to 20 per cent nylon,' says Rupert Anton, marketing director of The Carpet Foundation. 'Avoid loop-pile carpets as they "grin" (open up when bent) and are more slippery.' Use a good underlay over both tread and riser and fit the carpet so the pile runs down the stairs. It's also possible to use a strip of carpet as a runner. Look at Ryalux, which does carpet to your width. For runners, see Roger Oates or The Carpet Library's Hartley runners, which are reversible so last twice as long.
Shelving space. The great thing about shelves is their versatility - you can find ones to fit into almost type of space. Fitting a tailor-made shelving unit under the stairs will allow you to make the most of the space. You will be able to display all your best photos, ornaments, CDs and books that might otherwise be boxed away - and to show off your favourite items, you could even fit some strategically placed backlights. If you have too many books you could make a miniature library by fitting some shelves under the stairs. Just add an armchair, reading lamp and coffee table, and you're all set for some quality 'me' time.
