Stairs in a Private House: Types and Forms
Stairs are no longer just a functional element. Today it is a kind of decoration and a full-fledged design object.
Stairs can be different. Their classification depends on various factors: material, model design, type of construction and functional purpose.
Let’s look at these types in detail.
You can choose practically every material for your stairs at home, though you need to take into consideration the functional purpose. So, stairs can be made of wood, metal, concrete, combination of materials is also possible.
Winding stairs (spiral) and flight of stairs are the most common stairs models.
Speaking about their functionality there are three main stairs types: indoor (interior), landscape (outdoor) and for special needs. The purposes of this construction can also be different: entrance, interior (between the floors) and working.
Indoor or interior stairs which are situated between the floors are the main type (speaking about design). Such construction plays an important role in the interior of our house as a full-fledged design element. There are many stairs models nowadays, starting with simple and laconic flight of stairs and ending with eccentric design ideas!
Stairs with plastic or glass screens as rails look very nice and even a bit “airily” because of such railing which makes this construction look lighter. One more important thing is that you shouldn’t lean against such railing. Stairs with weave railing look beautiful, too, especially in the classical interior. These constructions are very practical and strong. Stairs without foundation are very nice, besides they can save the space in your house greatly. This model is also very strong and lasting. Winding stairs are something special! Such constructions have many profits. First of all you can place these stairs even if the space is very small. The variety of model is great (not only round shape, square or polygon shape is also possible).
Beautiful stairs will bring some allure and create special atmosphere in your house!
