The traditional kind of staircase really does take up an inordinate amount of space that, in a small home really isn’t available. Most people just put up with what they have, decorate the staircase and find the best use they can for the under-stairs’ area. However, if you are in the market for a new staircase, there is quite an extensive range of home space saving staircases on the market. The cheapest on the market – and also the smallest – is the Karina model which combines either a light or a dark beech wood used for the treads with one of three other colors. As well as being the smallest on the market the Karina is narrow enough to be used as a loft ladder replacement or in other spaces that are too narrow for other, more conventional staircases.
As so many of the modern properties being built nowadays are smaller than their earlier counterparts, manufacturers are now making staircases in a range of sizes. Nowadays, you can obtain bespoke architectural solid wooden stairs in both contemporary designs and to fit a range of requirements; you can get traditional staircases, modern sweeping aluminum curves and modular spiral staircases – in fact, the range has probably never been as good. Part of this extensive choice can be attributed to the state-of-the-art technology and software for designing and profiling the new designs and bespoke sizes. One particular manufacturer, from Italy, is Mobirolo who is renowned for their innovative designs of home space saving staircases.
Mobirolo began focusing on staircase manufacture in 1966 and, since then, have manufactured spiral staircases in different materials, attic stairs, open stairways and self assembly kits such as Fusion or Vogue which are both becoming particularly popular. Mobirolo Marketing Division now distributes the self-assembly home space saving staircases manufactured by Arke such as the very popular Karina or the spiral model called the Kompact. These self-assembly kits conform to the highest European standards and are supplied with a full-length, 25 minute assembly video, printed instructions and parts’ lists.
The Space Saving Staircase Company offers other home space saving staircases. These include the very contemporary stripped wood with metal balustrades such as the functional Junior model which is manufactured in a range of diameters, including 600cm, 650cm, 700cm, 750cm, 800cm and 850cm. The Mignon, meanwhile, features an open stair design in shades of stripped wood with minimal open treads. The diameter of this home space saving spiral staircase is between 500cm and 700cm. Another of their designs is the Marinara which also features open stair treads. While the diameter is between 500cm and 800cm, the design is completely unique and provides everything you would expect with elegant Italian styling.
Whether it is staircases from a budget kit that, put together, forms a contemporary spiral from as little as 100cm to as much as 800cm or straight and winding stairs that incorporates conventional with contemporary styling, home space saving staircases are now available to fit the bill. Apart from the timeless elegance of wood, they are now being manufactured in aluminum, glass, or steel – with either open or closed treads. In fact, lack of space no longer precludes a contemporary design being fitted as home space saving staircases have now come into their own.
