Designing and choosing modern staircase
Modern staircase design is following modern trends with open, airy, light designs and glass elements to open up small and dark hallways. Many homes still have their old 50s and 60s staircases with cheap softwood stairs, closed risers covered with carpet. You can now have a staircase which is more in keeping with the style and elegance of the rest of your home.

What do you need to consider when choosing a new staircase?
1. How much space do you have available?
New builds will often have floor large enough for a staircase as the architect has already taken this into account. You will need to take into account any walls that will dictate the shape. A small hallway may only allow for a straight flight whereas a larger entrance hallway will allow for a quarter turn or half turn .
2. The height and the layout of the staircase.
The height of the room or hall will also dictate the height of the staircase and the number of steps and risers needed. If you are replacing an old staircase a new staircase installation will tend to follow the same shape and form of the previous layout. If you need advise with the layout and the space a staircase requires then please contact A & T Carpentry who will be only to happy to advise on your particular requirements.
