For practicality surfaces need to be tough. If carpet is your chosen, floor covering, ensure that it is well attached to the stairs either by a gripper rod beneath or stair rods above. Stair rods are an old-fashioned but decorative idea and many styles, particularly those in brass, are still being manufactured. A stair nosing will protect stair edges in situations where there is particularly heavy wear. Delicate wall surfaces can be protected by the introduction of a painted dado at the lower level.
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.
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.
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.
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.
