The design of the stair is heavily affected by its function, different designs have different functions. Staircases like those in hotels are being used most of the time that is why they placed in a more visible area and are bigger than those staircase used by few or those that are placed in basements. Spiral staircases are used to give more style, artsy, and elegance. Now a days stairs have the same stair parts whatever the type is. The way the stair parts are built and combined will determine its style and structure that people desires for their home.
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.
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.
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.
The major decision you have to make is whether or not to star the stairway and, if so, which elements merit special treatment. Whichever parts are colored in contrast to the rest of the scheme, these are the details that will stand out. Remember also that wood has a color and it is a good idea to try to match other timber furnishings in the surrounding areas to this color.
