For your loft conversion the new staircase is an important feature as well as providing access to upper floors, the staircase is important from a visual standpoint. As a result, you must consider many variables when picking your design.

We're going to highlight some of the more important ones here.

The occupants

You'll need to think about the homes occupants when looking at the stairs. After all, these are the individuals who will use them. For instance, there could be children and seniors present. If this is the case, our advice would be to choose a design with handrails and landing plates.


The safety of your stairs is something else you cannot ignore here. the UK's current building regulations are meant to assist with creating a safe design. They state minimum width requirements for particular applications. In addition, they make certain there aren't any gaps present that exceed 100mm. This prevents youngsters from climbing through the balusters and makes spiral staircases are as secure as a regular staircase.


Finally, of course you have to consider your available budget. This will determine what style and materials you can select. Once you find something you like, see how much it costs you. You'll then be able to figure out if you can meet the price tag.
