Staircases are more than an element of construction. They are a vital element of transitional space from one level to another. They come in various varieties and style. The material of construction, the style, the flight of stairs, the location of the stairs, and the style of tread, the balustrades, the railing pattern, the colour and textural finish are the elements of prime importance determining the staircase.

Types of stairs

They are many types of stairs on the basis of their style. Some of the major styles include straight flight, dog legged, spiral, and helical, circular and geometrical stairs. Other varieties include plate staircase, folded plate, stringer and cantilevered stairs.

The materials used in staircases are some of the most experimented elements in architecture. The stair types vary on the basis of the materials also. Some of the widely used materials are concrete, wooden, brick, metal, glass, solid surface and stone.

The icing on the cake is the design of the balustrade and the railing of the stairs. These days, even organic forms of balustrades experimented with different materials are found successful on staircase designs. Handrails are of extreme importance and a matter of safety and support. The style of handrails can be straight and contemporary or minimalistic with metal or curved with wood. There is a wide sea of design options present in this matter of study.

Staircase is an element of both form and function. Equal importance must be given to function as is the aesthetic equation of the stairs. The height of riser and the measurement of tread, the width of the stairs, the finish of the stairs and the stability of the entire structure must also be verified. One needs to enjoy transition into levels!
