How to choose the style and material of the stairs?

After working hard for a long time, he finally bought his long-awaited LOFT apartment, large duplex or villa, and perfectly realized the lofty dream of an upstairs downstairs lamp phone. As a result, the stairs that were never touched during the previous renovation required a good care. Start with the most basic things, set the style, choose the style, and find the Only One that suits you best.

The size of the space determines the style of the stairs. Generally large space is suitable for straight running stairs and curved stairs, while small spaces are often used for folding ladders, spiral stairs, and retractable stairs. So it's not like the stairs are suitable for your own home, or let the space to decide which style of stairs to choose.

Straight run stairs

A straight-lined staircase requires sufficient height and slope to keep the passage straight, so when the number of steps is the same, it will require more and more space than other styles of stairs. For modern families that have "expensive land," this type of product has been less used.

Curved staircase

This is the most suitable for the villa or the use of a large space, the shape of the stairs, the upper and lower floors are made of an elegant arc, natural, beautiful, width, location can be adjusted according to design needs. It is very comfortable to walk on and there are no other stairs as careful and hard. It emphasizes individuality and cannot be mass-produced. It is therefore the most expensive of several styles.


The folding staircase is equivalent to the "transformation" of a straight running staircase, mainly referring to a small space, the use of a stepping connection to divide the staircase into two sections, turning, spiraling, and often U-shaped, L-shaped two forms. The space under such stairs is relatively small and difficult to use, and most families will make it a small storage or decoration area. Relatively speaking, there are more families using this type of staircase.

Spiral staircase

The spiral staircase can be regarded as a combination of a curved staircase and a ladder. It occupies a very small space and is particularly suitable for small duplex and LOFT units. However, because the arc of such a staircase is too large, there is a wide gap between steps, and it is inconvenient to walk. It is easy for people to feel dizzy. Therefore, it is not suitable for families with elderly people and children.

Folding stairs, extension ladders

The floor space for folding stairs and stretching stairs is much less than the spiral staircase, but it is just a temporary ladder. Folding stairs are generally composed of two or three small stairs. When not in use, they can be folded and stowed. The length is only 1/3 of the original stairs. When not in use, they can be completely accommodated in the upper floor and will not occupy the lower space; and the stairs are similar to it. Each step can be closed, and the climate saves space compared to folding staircases. It's like a spring. Pull it down when you use it. When not in use, push it up. These two types of stairs are suitable for small spaces, many things, and only one home in a storage loft.
