From the shape of stairs, there are four kinds of stairs: straight stairs, corner stairs, curved stairs and spiral stairs. Different stairs are suitable for different space layout and decoration style.
Ⅰ. Choose stairs according to space layout
1. Straight stairs
Straight stairs are not common in modern homes. The reason lies in the individualization of the structure of modern home spaces and their decoration needs. Moreover, and in the era of land and gold nowadays, many apartment spaces are not suitable for designing such straight-line stairs. However, compared to other types of stairs, straight stairs have a higher safety performance. If there are elderly and children in the home, it is recommended to design linear stairs if conditions permit.
2. Corner staircase
Corner stairs can make full use of the limited space, which determines that it is the most common type of stairs in modern home, especially the duplex type. And the stairs make the space more symmetrical, and divide the visual space well.
3. Curved staircase

2. Stair width: normally the width of stairs should not be less than 75cm. If both sides are walls, the width should not be less than 90cm. If not, it may cause many inconvenience in future life and also make people feel oppressive.
