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.
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.
I can only imagine what joy and fulfillment one might feel upon seeing their dream house take form right before their eyes. From planning the lay-out to picking out the furniture, all these will be all worth it once everything is finished and you can finally reside in your dream home.
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.
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.
