Staircases come in all shapes and sizes, so when you’re planning a new staircase for your Edgbaston home, one of the things you’ll need to think about is what overall basic design to choose. Different designs have different features and benefits, so be sure to consult a local West Midlands staircase designer if you’re unsure.
These are some of the different staircase designs you could choose from:
These can be the perfect option when you have a limited width to play with and want a straightforward staircase solution for your Edgbaston home. Straight doesn’t have to mean boring though, and there are lots of ways to design a more interesting straight staircase. For example, you could commission an Edgbaston staircase designer to design and install a bespoke balustrade to add a touch of class and style.
These wind around a central point and are often used in situations where space is limited. They can be designed to have a contemporary or traditional appearance. A spiral staircase can look very attractive but if you’re choosing one for space-saving purposes, remember that they might not be very practical for moving large objects upstairs or downstairs, so think about how you’ll be using the Edgbaston staircase first.
If you’re looking for a real wow factor, then why not consider cantilevered stairs, which have most of the weight of the treads supported by a single wall. Bear in mind that safety could be an issue, and that you’ll need a baustrade in order to comply with building regulations.
