Building you own staircase need not be stressful. What you really need is a level head, a good set of hands, a lot of books, and the right tools and equipment and you are good to go. It is the most prominent part of your house. All members of your family will be using it many times a day. The way you build it may make or break your entire interior decorations. If place in the middle of the house, it can be considered its heart also. The stairs is very important part and parcel of your house. It is but proper that you give a considerable time in designing it so that it will highlight the beauty and elegance of your abode. Here are some tips you could use in designing it.
It is impossible to think of a stairway without considering the rooms with which it connects - in particular the hall from which it probably emanates. Because the two areas will inevitably be viewed together, it is important that the color schemes of both are closely linked, if not entirely the same.
You must plan the lay-out of your future home according to your needs. The number of rooms, the flow of your home, how many levels, and where to put the staircase, should all be carefully considered and planned.
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.
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.
