The designs you culled from the magazines as well as from the internet could serve as a basis for designing your own staircase. You can either copy all the attributes of the parts that you like, or you can design one from scratch. Designing your stairs will bring out the creativity juices from you, and will even excite you a bit. It is a feat you can do if you put your mind into. Just remember that there are a lot of resources to turn to in case you really go for DIY stair building.
The material used for stair climbing should also be sturdy. It should be able to withstand children running up and down, and constant abuse. If you choose to carpet your stairs, make sure you check the carpeting from time to time, to avoid any accidents caused by slipping on stair carpet.
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.
Also keep an eye out for splinters and just sand and finish to get rid of them. Get your steps checked for mold every now and then if they are near a damp place like the basement. Leaving that for a long time will give you a lot more problem in the future.
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.
