FLIGHT OF STEPS
Stairs will be crucial to bringing our homes to work with their overall style. Staircases have an essential function – to physically link one floor of a house to another – whether it's on a split level, or over two floors of a building, or between inside and outside.
A stairway offers a visual connection as well as a physical one. This is an ability that can be missed in a lot of designs.
The stairs can take a large number of shapes, combining winders and landings.
The easiest method is the straight flight of stairs, with neither winders nor landings. These types of stairs have been widely used in traditional homes because they are fairly easy to create and only need to be connected to the top and bottom.
• The upstairs is directly visible from the bottom of a straight flight of stairs.
• it is potentially more dangerous in that a fall is not interrupted until the bottom of the stairs
• a straight flight requires enough space for the entire run of the stairs
Another type of straight stairs is a space-saving staircase, also known as paddle stairs or alternating stairs, which can be used for steeper climbing, but which can only be used under some situations and must comply with regulations.
STAIRS AND ART
As much as stairs are very functional, stairs can be very decorative and an impressive part of a building. Especially at the entrance of a large building stairs play an important role in the first impression of a building. In large buildings such as banks this is very popular. Modern companies and construction utilize the opportunities of functional stairs to actually upgrade building
Residential stairs are conventionally made from cost-effective material, such as MDF, and then covered in their finished coating. It can be a carpet or wood flooring.
Additionally, you can select different materials depending on your budget. Many great stairs are made of glass trays and steel plates.
You can treat the stairs as an opportunity to create privacy in your home.
Stairs can bring a sense of mystery and secrecy about what they lead to because you can't really see what's on the other end of them.
They can be a good move from the public areas of a home on the lower floor to the private areas of a home on the upper floor.
Staircases will create a sculptural and very powerful aesthetic feature in your home.
There are, of course, the sweeping, grand steps, or the Sound of Music. Instead, glass, steel and wood can be used in contemporary homes.
Traditionally, the stairs were made of wood, stone or marble, and iron or steel. The use of steel and reinforced concrete has made possible bold curves and fantastic sweeps that can be important features of contemporary design. The horizontal surface of the leg is called its leg and the vertical front is called its leg; the legs are placed between the legs that are inclined to the angle of the leg. The stairs; the strings are reinforced by newer posts, which also support the handrail, creating a balustrade.
Although the expense of these stairs can vary significantly, it can also operate at a very budget and economic level. Each of these choices will have an impact on how the stairs feel to travel up and down, and how they look in your home.
Not only does the staircase of the house provide vertical movement, it is an significant indicator of the overall design of the building. It's often one of the first features you'll see, and it can be seen from many angles, so we think it's important to pay close attention to its design.
Some designs may include intermediate levels in the stairs that are integrated with the things around them. It could be that the landing will have a small library room, or it may expand to build some joinery in an adjacent space.
How you step onto the stairs can also change. You may start on a large plinth, or something that creates a small bench seat to sit on. The options are endless if you want something a little special.
The staircase has a gallery feel to it given the volume of the space and art work displayed.
The spiral staircase is a beautiful innovation and is perfect for compact areas. The example below is from one of our houses in Vaucluse and is a secondary stairway to the tower. The water feature at the bottom adds value, while the stone steps are minimally detailed with clearly detailed metal balustrades.
