People get staircases made in accordance to their styles. There are simple staircases, artistic staircases, pretty or classy staircases. However your staircases may look, you need to keep them neat, clean and safe at all times. You know how it goes in the movies, messy dirty stairs person falling or slipping and lots of pain. So here are some things you need to keep in mind all the time so everything looks the way it should and you come down the stairs the way you should.
If you choose to do it yourself here are some reminders to help you as you go along. Safety is the main priority in planning your staircase. It should be placed not directly outside rooms, or in places where it will disrupt the flow of the room - such as in the middle of your living room. If you have children, you should choose materials that are child-friendly. Sharp edges should be covered and materials such as glass should be avoided. The staircase railing should also be sturdy and not have very wide gaps in between. Floating stairs are a major hazard and are not recommended, unless you want to sacrifice safety for aesthetics. Floating stairs do not offer any support for children and old people to hold on to when using the staircase.
Now when cleaning many people ignore the auxiliary step area which includes the side panels, railings, handrails and landings. Do not ignore these areas. If they are made of wood you should not only dust them but polish them as well with furniture wax. No waxing for the steps or landing places as we are avoiding slipping. nothing thats close to the feet.
The material used for stair climbing should also be sturdy. It should be able to withstand children running up and down, and constant abuse. If you choose to carpet your stairs, make sure you check the carpeting from time to time, to avoid any accidents caused by slipping on stair carpet.
There are literally dozens of magazines dedicated for home improvements or home designs. You may collect different designs from these magazines. They feature different and varied designs on stairs and you may pick one that is just right for your home. You may of course improve on some details to fit it perfectly to your house. This is the easy task in choosing a design. It is the same as just ordering a pre made stairs and all you have to do is install with all the easy to follow procedure on how to do it. But if you want to really own the design then you have to really design it yourself.
