Which shape…?

Staircases are the mainstay of any home or property where there are different levels that need transcending. And yet, they are notoriously expensive for what look like a simply set of stairs…

There is more to stairs that just a bit of measuring, a few nails and bannister; they need to be safe. They need to have a gradient that is useable and safe; too steep and it will be like climbing a mountain to reach the top!

Staircases can also form an important internal structural part to a home too. And this is why you need an experienced, skill staircase company in Scotland for your project…

The challenge!

Deciding where to locate your staircase, and which will be the right shape to choose is the challenge! And, it is on these very points that you need the help, advice and experience of a staircase company in Scotland.

The key to what will and what will not work is SPACE. Limited space will, to a certain extent, dictate the choice of shape staircase. The more subtle a climb, the wider the staircase will need to be but the more space it will take up.

If space is tight, there are still some amazing options – just look at a bespoke circular or spiral staircase and how little room they swallow, but how impressive they are…?

What are the options when it comes to shape?

  • A straight staircase is the easiest type to build, running straight up and down between one level and another although, to get the gentle gradient needed, it can be difficult to squeeze into a small floor space.
  • L shaped stairs incorporate a 90° angle at some point In the stair; as a staircase company in Scotland will tell you, this uses less floor space but is still a gentle enough gradient to climb.
  • Spiral staircases twist around a central pole that forms the backbone of the structure; the beauty of spiral stairs lies not just in its visual appeal, but also in the fact that it takes up the minimal amount of floor space, making it perfect for smaller rooms!
  • Cantilevered stairs are when the treads of a staircase seem to magically float from the wall; many people who are looking to create a statement with their staircase can really make a high impact with this design.
