but may nonetheless be of sufficient architectural interest to form the focal point of your entrance. Graciously curving hand rails, handsome newel posts, elegantly proportioned steps and elaborately cast or turned balustrades - these are all details that merit attention.
After youve got the design and your installation plan all mapped out, never forget the legalities of building staircases. The national and local building code provides important notes to consider. Your design must pass the requirements set by the national and local building code before you can actually build your stairs. Consider in your design the materials and wood you will use. Will it be varnished or painted? Would you place a carpet on it? Feng shui would also help you in the orientation of your design. The Chinese believe that the direction and accessories of your staircase will determine your familys wealth and fortune. That is, if youre the superstitious kind.
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 if carpets are not your thing then make sure that the steps are always clean. Dust the steps daily with a clean cloth by hand. Dont go for feather dusters as all they do is spread the dust somewhere else. Make sure you get in all the corners and around the panels.
It is a fact that a house built with more than one level should have a staircase, a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. There are different types of staircases, of course it depends on what the owner of the house likes, the general shape, construction method, materials, design and other features that differentiate one from another. And if you want to have good staircase, good stair parts are necessities.
