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.
The space beneath a stairway offers a wonderful opportunity for storage, either closed in and housing unsightly items (such as cleaning implements and bicycles) or open and perhaps forming a mini library or bar. In a space-pressed home, a miniature office might even be accommodated.
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.
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.
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.
