Not all stairways have exactly the same stair parts take the stairs that have open risers for an example. There are basic rules and principles that need to be followed in building staircases in order to make them safe from danger.
For practicality surfaces need to be tough. If carpet is your chosen, floor covering, ensure that it is well attached to the stairs either by a gripper rod beneath or stair rods above. Stair rods are an old-fashioned but decorative idea and many styles, particularly those in brass, are still being manufactured. A stair nosing will protect stair edges in situations where there is particularly heavy wear. Delicate wall surfaces can be protected by the introduction of a painted dado at the lower level.
It is impossible to think of a stairway without considering the rooms with which it connects - in particular the hall from which it probably emanates. Because the two areas will inevitably be viewed together, it is important that the color schemes of both are closely linked, if not entirely the same.
Building you own staircase need not be stressful. What you really need is a level head, a good set of hands, a lot of books, and the right tools and equipment and you are good to go. It is the most prominent part of your house. All members of your family will be using it many times a day. The way you build it may make or break your entire interior decorations. If place in the middle of the house, it can be considered its heart also. The stairs is very important part and parcel of your house. It is but proper that you give a considerable time in designing it so that it will highlight the beauty and elegance of your abode. Here are some tips you could use in designing it.
Another good and useful rule of thumb is that the total of the length of the tread and the riser should not exceed 17 . This is the standard used to create comfortable stairs in most establishments. But keep in mind that the riser should not exceed the length of the tread, the vice versa is much more practical. For example, the length of the riser is 8 and the tread is 9 , when added makes 17 , making it pass the standards for comfortable stair climbing.
