Choosing A Staircase That Maximises Space.

If you are limited on the space in your home, chances are you’ve been searching for ways to maximise your home’s space. From clearing out junk to rearranging furniture, there’s only so much we can do to create more space. What you might not have considered is renovating your existing staircase.

If you look at a traditional staircase, it’s not really maximising your home’s space. Traditional staircases often take up a lot of room in your home and block off a lot of crucial space that could be used for something else. By upgrading your staircase, you could add a significant amount of space to your home.

Assess Your Space.

The first thing to do when you’re considering a staircase upgrade is to assess your current space. Sometimes our staircases are actually making the most out of our space or they’re providing important structural support to other areas of your home.

If you aren’t able to use the space underneath your staircase or if your staircase is blocking the natural flow of light in your home, a staircase upgrade can truly transform your space. You’d be surprised how much space is wasted if you’re not able to use the area underneath your staircase. By opening up that area with a new custom staircase, you’ll have more room to do the things you love.

Is Your Priority Space Or Style? It Can Be Both.

Most people think that a custom staircase means either maximising space or getting the style they want. The reality is, it can easily be both. With a custom staircase design by S&A Stairs, you can capitalise on your home’s space and get a truly stunning staircase in the process. You shouldn’t have to decide between style and functionality.

Styles Ideal For Small Spaces.

There are quite a few styles that are ideal for small spaces. With these styles, you’ll open up your staircase and get a stunning new feature in your home. The first style you should consider is a floating staircase. With a floating staircase, you’re greatly reducing the area that’s taken up by your staircase and have truly endless design options.

You can have a straight staircase, a unique curve, or a staircase that doubles back on itself. With the staircase support coming from your wall or ceiling, you’re freeing up the space underneath your staircase for you to use for something else.

Spiral staircases are timeless designs that are incredibly effective at maximising space in your home. The tight spiral makes the design much more vertical than a traditional staircase, which can save you a lot of space in your home. Most spiral staircases are also not enclosed, meaning you can use the space around and under your staircase as well.

Why Lighting Is Important.

While the staircase design is important, lighting plays an important role in making your space feel open and bigger. Choosing a design that maximises on space as well as lighting will make the biggest impact in your home or business. That means choosing a design that blocks as little light as possible. Designs with open risers, glass balustrades, and thin posts are all simple design tricks to improve the lighting in your space.
