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.
Number one rule for staircases is to never leave them cluttered. When you come home from school or work do not thrown your bag on the steps. When the kids are playing with their toys make sure they do not leave the toys (especially toy with wheels) on the stairs or make sure someone cleans up after themselves.
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.
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.
Now when cleaning many people ignore the auxiliary step area which includes the side panels, railings, handrails and landings. Do not ignore these areas. If they are made of wood you should not only dust them but polish them as well with furniture wax. No waxing for the steps or landing places as we are avoiding slipping. nothing thats close to the feet.
