The staircase is probably the most used, and least noticed, feature of our homes. But a beautifully designed staircase can be the feature that elevates your property.
Our ultimate guide to staircase design encompasses all the information you need to ensure you are meeting the relevant regulations.
Detail of an open plan
Get the Angle Right
The angle of the stair shouldn't be too shallow or too steep, it depends on the height and length of the stairs. so it will be comfortable to walk up and down.
Fitting Our Feet
Looking in detail at how our stair lays out, the geometry of the treads (horizontal walking surfaces) and risers (vertical pieces at the back of each tread) is set. usually a tread 30cm deep, as it provides a suitable landing spot for most feet.
Supporting Our Weight
Stringers are the sawtooth sides of the stair that the treads and risers will attach to they are typically designed to be strong enough to support themselves and the weight of risers, treads and people or they get attached to an adjacent structural element for support.
On the open side of the stair as well as at the sec ond - floor landing, there should be a guardrail that will prevent from falling to the floor below. Another rail that will be needed is a handrail adjacent to the wall.
