Staircases are constructed to shorten a vertical distance into small steps and help one to connect to
all areas of the house. The staircase is divided into three parts. First, the part where one steps on is called the tread. Second, the distance between each staircase can be referred as the
riser. Finally, nosing, which is the sharp part of the tread that projects towards the riser. You have probably thought of changing something down the staircase. The staircase is one of the most
eye-catching parts of a house, therefore, doing something to it gives the whole house a glamorous look. You can decide to paint the staircase using different paint colors or patterns.
There exist six types of staircases. First, is the straight staircases are the most common. They are easy to ascend and descend and easy to construct. However, they take a large amount of space
to design. Second, is the quarter turn staircase which has a 90-degree bend at the transition point. It is an interesting staircase design, and it tends to offer privacy by forming a visual
barrier between floors. On the other hand, quarter turn staircases are hard to build since they require more skills in planning. Third, we have the half turn staircases. These staircases are easy
to design and allows one to rest as they go up the staircase. Next, are winder staircases which have a pie-shaped landing compared to straight staircases. They consume less space and are
therefore recommended for a small house. The fifth type of staircases is the spiral staircases. The treads of a spiral staircase diverge from a center pole. They are compatible, hence, use
limited space and appear attractive. However, they cannot accommodate more than one person and are challenging to navigate. Finally, we have the curved staircases, which are more spacious than
spiral staircases. They are easy to walk on but, most challenging to build.
