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.
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.
It is entirely up to you on how many levels you want your dream home to be. But it is important to always remember to put your staircase in strategic locations. Depending in your choice and budget, you have the option of choosing to hire someone to construct the staircase for you. But if you are the Do-it-yourself type, you can opt to build your own staircase. With the help of some basic construction know-how you might be able to come up with a safe and sturdy staircase.
