In most houses a staircase is just a means of moving from one floor to another. Usually, there is nothing special about a staircase, though some are more beautiful and charming than the others. Closed or open sided staircases, and natural or painted wood, these are some of the choices that used to available.

Here are some types of staircases:

Straight Stairs

Generally for homes with small area, straight stairs provide a space efficient option and the available width of the staircase is very retractable. Due to this, this type of straight stairs are often used in conditions in straight runs are required between two floors. These staircases may consist of one flight or more than one flight with a landing.

Quarter Turn Stairs

The quarter turn staircase turns either to the right or to the left and provides a quarter space landing or winders at the turn. In this type of staircase, the stairs turns a complete 90 degrees at the landing as it rises to connect two different floors. Due to its shape, it is also called as L-stair.

 Bifurcated stairs

Bifurcated staircases are more commonly used in public buildings. These are usually installed at the entrance of these buildings. These have a larger flight width at the bottom, which bisects into two narrower flights, one turning to the either sides, at the landing. These stairs require a larger area to install and hence are perfect for homes with larger ground area.

Circular Stairs

Circular stairs also called spiral stairs are usually placed at positions where there is limited space area. These stairs are mostly used as emergency stairs, and are provided at the back of a building. Although these are not very comfortable but provide a good and charming look to the house.

Helical Stairs

A helical staircase looks very good but is complicated in structural design and construction. It is usually made out of R.C.C using a large portion of steel to resist bending, shear and torsion.

While most workplaces today do have the window space accessible to attract this light, not every person exploits it. Studies have demonstrated that exposure to normal light enhances working environment efficiency, so even from a “primary concern” outlook it bodes well. Open up the space surrounding the windows with the goal that it is permitted to radiate through. However, with regards to utilizing common light for plan and “feel”, it’s not just about more. Controlling the light that enters an office is basic to catching the correct tone. To finish this, consider having customized blinds introduced, set to alter for the regular movement of the sun.

Paint with lighter tones

Deliberately put mirrors

Limit office furniture to the basics

Utilize office decorations with no windows

A stairway is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairs may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.

Special types of stairs include escalators and ladders. Some alternatives to stairs are elevators, stair lifts and inclined moving walkways as well as stationary inclined sidewalk.

Stairs may be in a straight run, leading from one floor to another without a turn or change in direction. Stairs may change direction, commonly by two straight flights. Stairs may also return onto themselves forming a vertical stairway commonly used in multistory and high rise buildings. Many variations of geometrical stairs may be formed of circular, elliptical and irregular constructions.

What are they made of?

Staircases can now be made from a wide range of materials. The most common is timber set of stairs which can be made out of different woods.Another very popular type of material for staircases is a mixture of steel stairs and supports and glass panels. These create a really modern look along with creating a sense of space.

Different types

Probably the most well-known staircase type is a straight style. These are usually in a single set or are set at an L shape, with one flight leading from the next. Most homes will have stairs like this as standard as they are very easy to install.

Spiral staircases are great if you are short on space. They are good for putting in the corner of the room as they rise straight up. In addition to this a spiral staircase will only need a small amount of floor space and will not cut across the room.

Freestanding stairs will not be attached to a wall and will tend to run through the middle of a room. Often the actual stairs will look as though they are almost floating hence giving it a really unique look.

Single open-under stairs are similar to freestanding stairs, but they are attached to one wall. This means they only have one side that looks ‘open’ and many people prefer this style. Not only do these types of stairs look good they also create the impression of more space, so they can work well in small houses.

With so many different types of staircases it can be hard to make a decision on what you would like. However, it makes sense to think about the practicalities that the types of staircases offer before making a choice. Do this and the ideal staircase for your home will become clear.

Exclusive Furniture

Furniture are the movable objects intended to support various activities such as seating and sleeping, and it is an integral part of any home/ office space


People have been using natural objects, such as tree stumps, rocks and moss, as furniture since the beginning of human civilization.

Seating is amongst the oldest known furniture types. This includes carved and sculpted pieces intended as works of art, as well as the styling of seats to indicate social importance, with senior figures or leaders granted the use of specially designed seats.

A sofa is one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture to sit and relax on.  It is the perfect piece for these types of rooms because it allows for several seating areas built into one piece of furniture.


Traditionally, furniture has been made of wood. With the industrial revolution, furniture manufactured from materials such as steel, aluminium, glass and plastic, began to appear. These materials may have revolutionized the furniture industry, but wood is undeniably a staple material in furniture manufacturing. Not only is wood everlasting, but it is timeless as well. Whether it is an armoire in the family room or a chair in the dining room, wood furniture manufacturers manage to combine eternal beauty along with a contemporary style.

  • Strength and Durability-Wood furniture is extremely resilient and requires very little maintenance. Wood is a long-lasting natural material which can last for generations with minimum care.
  • Ease of maintenance- Wood furniture is nearly effortless to maintain. Simply wipe the surface of the wood chair parts with a wood cleaner on a regular basis.
  • A decor staple- Adding a piece of wood furniture to a room will completely change its look and feel. Wood furniture offers elegance, charm and sophistication to any room.

Creating the perfect bedroom

The ideal bedroom is where serenity and calmness resides. This is where you can be yourself and let go from the hectic schedules of your daily life. It is thus important to create a viable environment where you can sleep and dissociate yourself from everyday hassles. Be it a small room or a big room, a bedroom should always be designed to suit your needs.
Try choosing muted colours for your bedroom walls. This will not “shock” your visual sense when you wake up, unlike the bright walls. Pale blue, gray or ivory are popular choices for bedroom walls. You can choose hardwood floors for your bedroom, but make sure to use carpets. The carpets will help keep the floors considerably warm, even after a cold night.
When investing in a bed, make sure you splurge. The bed is the focal point of the room, and you can go out to choose the most luxurious model you can afford. A good bed will ensure a good sleep and will keep you refreshed when you wake up. Make sure to position your bed in the right direction- not too close to the windows and at a sufficient distance from the air conditioner. This will help ensure that the temperature surrounding your bed is uniform.
