Staircases: When you bear in mind it's often the very first thing people look at whenever they enter your main entrance, the staircase tends to be one of the most regularly disregarded aspects in our homes. We stomp up and down them night and day, our children like to play on them them or sometimes get sent there when they are naughty, and often we may sit there ourselves whilst talking on the phone. Yet, in regards to home renovations, we are inclined to just dab a little bit of paint on the staircase and proceed to the kitchen, the lounge or the bedroom, for those substantial makeovers. The reality is, you could radically improve the overall look of your house by replacing your staircase, you can generate more space, you could allow more light into your home or you could increase the available storage. Now, the initial move towards making a start on this is to track down a reliable staircase fitter in Ilminster, who will be able to offer advice with regards to what precisely will and will not work in the layout of your house.

Staircase Fitter Ilminster SomersetNext will be to figure out exactly what kind of staircase is appropriate, from the variety of models on the market. This is scarcely ever a simple choice for you, in view of the fact that there is such a variety available to purchase and some of these will likely not be a good fit for your house, nevertheless your possibilities will be from: floating staircases, quarter landing staircases, circular staircases, single winder staircases, straight staircases, cantilevered staircases, L shaped staircases, curved staircases, helical staircases, spiral staircases, quarter turn staircases, freestanding staircases and more.

It is not just the layout that you have to make a decision on, because a staircase can be created from a number of materials such as: hardwood, stone, granite, glass, concrete, softwood, marble and steel, as well as amalgamations of these materials, a common example being metal and hardwood staircases. Even these different materials will come in assorted varieties and finishes. For example hardwood staircases could be made of maple, ash, oak, iroko, teak, beech, walnut or sapele, steel staircases could have a brushed steel, galvanized, powder coated, matt or bright finish and softwood staircases could be constructed from piranha pine, hemlock, Scandinavian pine, redwood, southern yellow pine or Douglas fir.

Safety Regulations Regarding Stairs: As I am sure you are aware, stairs and staircases must observe a number of safety and building regulations, the specific details of these are somewhat outside the scope of this article, and if you're interested, you can discover all the pertinent information here: Building Regulations 2010 - K1 Document, here: M1 and M2 Documents - Access and Use, and for Scotland here: Scottish Stair Regulation Documents. The general UK Regulations are relevant for England, Wales and N Ireland, while the Scotland Regulations are more or less the same apart from three or four variations relating to the "going" and "rise" of specified staircases and handrail heights. These safety and building regulations affect both domestic and public structures.

Ilminster Staircase Fitters SomersetConverting or Restoring Your Existing Staircase: By upgrading or rejuvenating your existing staircase, it's simple to make considerable changes to the appearance of your property without costing you too much of your hard earned cash. There are plenty of different ways to accomplish this and the possibilities are only limited by by your creativity and imagination, just for starters you could maybe take away the carpeting and strip back a painted staircase to reveal its beautiful wood finish, you could perhaps exchange wood panelling for glass to let in more light, you could replace the banisters to give the whole staircase a completely different appearance, you could perhaps utilize those odd lengths of wallpaper on your staircase risers to create a spectacular new effect and you might be able to turn a staircase around so it runs in a different direction. This sort of creative project can be very interesting and you may be able to do some or even all of the work yourself, providing you with an even greater feeling of achievement.

Bespoke Staircases in Ilminster: Hands down the preferred way to purchase a properly fitting and effective staircase for your property is to have a bespoke staircase designed and built specifically for the layout of your house. If you decide to have a bespoke staircase installed in your home you'll need to get in touch with an established Ilminster staircase fitter and probably a local Ilminster architect or surveyor as well, these experts will visit your house and survey and measure the location of your stairs and recommend the perfect design and materials for your specific property. Armed with all these measurements and details they will usually get a computer aided drafting (CAD) drawing made up of the staircase, together with a calculation of the price based upon your choice of design, materials and finish. You will need to ensure that you get a total price for all of the construction, installation and finishing costs, along with the expenses for disassembling your existing staircase, so you know beforehand the total cost of the project. If you find you cannot afford a bespoke staircase the other route is to get a pre-made staircase in the form of a kit or as an off the shelf product, the drawback with this approach is that it is not easy to get a staircase which will fit into your allocated space neatly, and of course a staircase needs to fit comfortably within the available space, to be both good to look at and safe.

Short Guide to Staircase Terms

Tread - A tread is the top or horizontal surface of a step on which your foot is placed when going up or descending the stairs, it is roughly the as thick as a floorboard. A tread and a riser combined form one step.

Staircase Installation Ilminster SomersetRiser - The vertical section between one tread and another. This may be missing for an "open" stair effect. In concert, a tread and a riser forms one step.

String, Stringer or Stringer Board - A stringer board is the section on either side of a run of stairs, to which the treads and risers are attached. A staircase will in most cases have 2 stringer boards, one at either side of the steps, a wider stairway can even have a third stringer board fixed in the middle for extra strength. Stairway stringer boards may be closed or cut, cut stringer boards have the upper edges cut and shaped to follow the shape of the risers and treads and reveal their profile if seen from the side.

Going - The going of a step is the distance (horizontally) measured between the front edge of a tread nosing to the front edge of the nosing of the tread above it. This approximates to the distance your feet travel forwards with every step up or down. The minimum allowed "going" is 220 millimetres for private properties in Great Britain. The going of the entire staircase is the total distance the staircase runs across the floor and its determined by the measurement from the face of the bottom riser to the face of the uppermost riser.

Balustrade - A balustrade is what we call the entire assembled handrail structure which encloses areas of the staircase and prevents people from falling off. The balustrade might be on either or each side of a staircase and can consist of a combination of handrails, panels, balusters or spindles, baserails, newels, caps and perhaps other ornate components.

Baluster - The spindles or balusters are vertical posts that support the handrail and connect it with the baserail, they restrict the size of the openings and transfer any load on the handrail to the main staircase framework. In the United Kingdom, building regulations (K1) stipulates that a sphere with a diameter of 100mm must be unable to pass through the space between 2 spindles, to make certain that children are not able to climb through the gap.

Newel Post - A newel post is a strong structural post or baluster that's utilized to anchor the handrail to the floor or to the rest of the staircase framework. Newel posts are situated at the bottom and top of stairs and wherever the stairway changes direction.

Spiral Staircase Fitters Ilminster SomersetMore Stair Terms and Parts - Newel Cap or Finial: The finial or newel cap is a fancy component fitted at the top of a newel post, Rake: The rake is the pitch or slope of the stairway as determined by the ratio between the going and the rise, Nosing: Nosings are the front parts of treads that stick out beyond the face of the risers under them, Winder: A winder is a step that's narrower at one end than the other, allowing the staircase to turn a corner without a landing.

Spiral Staircases Ilminster Somerset - What is a Spiral Staircase?: A spiral staircase is a stair that turns round a central newel, support or column which rises from floor to ceiling, with a railing on one side and with all of the steps fastened to the column on the other. A spiral staircase could be an extremely stunning centrepiece for anyones home, while requiring much less space than a customary staircase, they can easily fit into spaces which would be inadequate for standard types of staircase. However, on the down side,, spiral staircases are harder to go up and down and will likely be rather tricky for the elderly and disabled, they are also pretty hopeless in the event you need to move furniture or items of any size, up them or down them. Therefore you ought to think carefully before getting one fitted, particularly if you're planning on selling the property in the near future. Spiral staircases can be used both outdoors or indoors and are generally fabricated from wood or metal, or an amalgamation of both, these staircases are particularly useful for allowing access to places like attics and roof terraces or wherever there is limited space available.
