The Stair Case Types and How to Build One
These types of stair cases are designed and manufactured specifically for specific buildings. They can be based on ladder designs provided by the contractor, or on their own ideas of their own ladder they have built. Before custom ladders can be installed, the plans must be made according to the exact specifications. The different styles are based on a variety of things like:
• Site-specific architecture issues
• Desired materials
• Limits of the person’s imagination
• What was built before?
In the end, personalized stairs are usually a functional means to move from one floor to another. They are a kind of staircase built by contractors around the world. When planning the plans, the contractor must consider the architectural space of the building in which it is being built. It depends on the planned aesthetics and the space that will work in the design of the personalized stairs.
Some of the different types of custom ladders are:
• One that occupies a minimum of floor space winding around a pole
• One that is a long, straight staircase that, when ascending, emphasizes the distance
• One is a half-spiral staircase that rotates 180 degrees after landing
• Custom-made round staircases that climb the walls of round rooms
• A V-shaped staircase that reaches a single point
• A large staircase that could be divided into two stairs before reaching the opposite sides of the mezzanine
A unique custom staircase design is based on a spiral pattern. People who have gone up and down this design say they hardly notice changes in altitude. Custom ladders can be made with different types of materials, such as:
There are some conventional designs that use hand-made woods that contain decorative spindles, ornaments, and balusters. There are also contemporary staircases as they can be very minimalist and have an industrial aesthetic without classic decorative elements.
Custom ladders can have open areas below or can be a wall. In some cases, the basic architectural elements are minimized or modified to create a particular effect. One effect could be to make glass bands so that only the steps are visible. With this effect, the personalized ladder seems to float in the air. If this effect is built without handrails or railings, they can appear as steps that rise to the next story.
