When we look into a home, we often tend to forget to look at the things that are more essential, things that we need give attention to so that we might improve them. Well maybe you should start to check your home and see things that you might develop.
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.
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.
But before arriving at the finished product, one must go through a lot of planning and decision-making. Both function and design should be considered all through-out the planning process, even up to the building stage.
Number one rule for staircases is to never leave them cluttered. When you come home from school or work do not thrown your bag on the steps. When the kids are playing with their toys make sure they do not leave the toys (especially toy with wheels) on the stairs or make sure someone cleans up after themselves.
