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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
