Curved stairs are not as safe as a strait set of stairs. Curved stairs get very narrow on one side. A curved set of steps may be difficult to negotiate in an emergency or fire situation. Handrails should be installed on at least one side of the stairs that has two or more risers. Properly configured stair handrails should 34 inches high and they should be designed to comfortably accommodate a person wrapping their hand around the rail. Guardrails also should accompany a handrail system on a properly configured set of steps. The gaps should be only 4 inches wide so that the body of a child can not fit though the openings.
Proper stair design has a maximum rise of eight inches, a minimum run of nine inches and a minimum tread width of 9.25 inches. A safe and properly configured stairway should be at 34 inches wide. As a rule the wider steps are safer then narrow stairs. There needs to be adequate headroom above the set of stairs. The required headroom is at least 6 foot 6 inches. When there is a door at the top of a set of steps, it should open away from the stairs for safety reasons. If a door opens toward the stairs a landing is needed so a person opening the door will not be able to push someone on the stairs.
Another type of material that we can use is marble. This type of material is commonly used in huge mansions with wide grand stairways. It is not commonly used in ordinary houses since it’s too expensive. Other types of materials used in stair parts are stone, cement, and steel. Depending on what you want the over-all look of the house is. The purpose of any stairs or its stair parts is too serve as a pathway for the house owners to go up and down the house. So it is imperative that it will be functional as well as aesthetic so that our houses will look good. Normally when people visit us, the first thing that they will see once they go inside the house is the stairs. Thus, we need the stairs to create a perfect first impression on the house. We normally go the edge just to please our visitors. But what we normally overlook is the fact that when we have a perfect staircase in our houses, this actually helps in impressing our visitors.
