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.
The space beneath a stairway offers a wonderful opportunity for storage, either closed in and housing unsightly items (such as cleaning implements and bicycles) or open and perhaps forming a mini library or bar. In a space-pressed home, a miniature office might even be accommodated.
The designs you culled from the magazines as well as from the internet could serve as a basis for designing your own staircase. You can either copy all the attributes of the parts that you like, or you can design one from scratch. Designing your stairs will bring out the creativity juices from you, and will even excite you a bit. It is a feat you can do if you put your mind into. Just remember that there are a lot of resources to turn to in case you really go for DIY stair building.
If you can, have your stairs carpeted as it makes slipping less likely. If its carpeted make sure the carpet is cleaned on a weekly basis. Vacuum each carpeted tread and dont forget the inside crease or the portion where one step meets the other. The side and the railings have to be vacuumed too preferable all of this with a hand vacuum and not the big vacuum which Im sure you do not want to drag up and down the stairs. Thats not safe in itself.
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.
