If you are looking to build a new home or even a new commercial property, have you ever considered the type of staircase that would look the best in the intended property? Having a different staircase can dramatically change the look of a room, while it might also be much more helpful in getting all types of people up onto the upper floor or floors.
Here are all the types of staircases you can have the best architect in the Hamptons plan for you.
In terms of function, straight stairs are as simple as it gets. They allow users to climb up or down with no change in direction. These stairs are the easiest to build, just as unique designs are the easiest to incorporate. Even the railing of your choice installs onto your stairs easily. It also doesn’t require much to connect a straight set of stairs between two floors.
The caveat to straight stairs is that they take up plenty of space, so you need to consider an ideal location for your stairs. They require an adequate amount of space for each landing.
An L-shaped staircase is made similarly to a straight staircase, except the path changes 90 degrees in the middle with a landing. This makes people using the stairs change direction. These can make your home or commercial building look attractive if they are installed along a wall. In the case of homes, they can also provide a visual barrier so that you don’t see the upper floor from the lower floor, and vice versa. The landing is meant to have enough space for people who tire out when climbing stairs to stop and take a break.
L-Shaped stairs do have their flaws, with one major one being that it is harder to carry furniture up or down them, unless the area is open enough. These stairs also need to be custom-made as do railings and all other decor.
Curved stairs provide a gentle, curved path from one floor to the next. They are similar to the L-shaped staircase, but they have no landing and they allow your body to turn with every step. What is great about these stairs is that they can be as wide or as narrow as you want. The wider the stairs are, the easier they are to tread. These stairs make a home or commercial space look beautiful, as they can be either placed along a wall or in the open.
Curved stairs are the hardest types of stairs to make, as it requires lots of skill to design a curved set depending on the height of each floor and how wide the stairs need to be.
