Modern living can present one rather larger problem – lack of space. Modern housing and developments are being built far more compact and with less room, in all dimensions such as height. Nobody likes cramped space but sometimes a big empty void can be just as uncomfortable.
This lack of space makes for one big headache – where to put the stairs. If room is cramped, then a traditional staircase will not work; it may look like a massive intrusion on the space. Spiral staircases offer a touch of class, as well as being a very practical solution in a tight space.
Spiral staircases can also be used in older properties such as mid-terraced properties where you are looking to utilise and maximise the space available to you within the property. For example, some older properties have generous lofts or cellar space. A spiral staircase offers the opportunity to use this space, without the need to add a fixed traditional staircase.
A Modern Invention?
You can be forgiven for thinking that spiral staircases are modern inventions but, take a look back in history and you will find spiral staircases in many buildings. Take a walk around a castle and would will that spiral staircases feature heavily.
The benefits of a spiral staircase are numerous:
- They are a practical solution to connect multiple floors in a building or a house.
- They are compact and only occupy a small amount of space themselves
- Adds style – everyone will admire and appreciate your spiral staircase
Spiral staircases are also seen as architectural pieces mainly as they employ so many different facets of design. Inside the home, a spiral staircase adds glamour whilst they addition outside they add functionality to reach other floors etc, without adding too big a staircase to the garden.
Designs and materials
Spiral staircases can be built from virtually any material. Some interiors dictate the use of ornate iron staircases whilst other customers have opted for a classic wooden staircase. The great added benefit or a spiral staircase is that they are relatively easy to install too.
But, don’t just assume they are for small spaces - you could consider a spiral staircase anyway, just for the style and wow factor!
