But before arriving at the finished product, one must go through a lot of planning and decision-making. Both function and design should be considered all through-out the planning process, even up to the building stage.
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.
Another good and useful rule of thumb is that the total of the length of the tread and the riser should not exceed 17 . This is the standard used to create comfortable stairs in most establishments. But keep in mind that the riser should not exceed the length of the tread, the vice versa is much more practical. For example, the length of the riser is 8 and the tread is 9 , when added makes 17 , making it pass the standards for comfortable stair climbing.
Now when cleaning many people ignore the auxiliary step area which includes the side panels, railings, handrails and landings. Do not ignore these areas. If they are made of wood you should not only dust them but polish them as well with furniture wax. No waxing for the steps or landing places as we are avoiding slipping. nothing thats close to the feet.
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.
