Staircase Design for Loft Conversions: The Importance of Accurate Measurement and Design
When it comes to loft conversions, one of the most critical elements is the design and installation of the staircase. At Chief Architectural Ltd, we understand that the position of the staircase is a crucial part of the design process as it can affect the overall architectural design of the new upper floor. That’s why we offer millimetre accurate staircase measurement services to ensure that your staircase is designed and constructed with precision and accuracy.
Our team of experienced architectural designers will carry out precise floor-to-floor measurements when designing your staircase. We have the skills and expertise in staircase design to be confident that your stairs can be constructed before the project even starts. This ensures that the installation of the stairs will not delay the project, saving you time and money in the long run.
We offer a range of different types of staircases for loft conversions, including:
- Straight flight staircases: These are most suitable type for loft conversions where space is not a limiting factor.
- Flight with winders: These staircases are used where there is limited space available for the staircase. Winders are triangular treads that allow the staircase to change direction without taking up as much space as a landing.
- Winders at the top and bottom turn: These staircases are used where there is limited headroom or space. They allow the staircase to turn at the top and bottom without taking up as much space.
It is important to note that there are specific regulations that must be followed when designing and installing a staircase for a loft conversion. For instance, the staircase must comply with Building Regulations Part K, which sets out the requirements for the pitch, rise, and going of the staircase. Our team at Chief Architectural Ltd are well-versed in these regulations and will ensure that your staircase meets all necessary compliance requirements.
When designing your staircase for your loft conversion, we take into account the existing layout of your home, the space available, and your personal preferences to create a bespoke design that fits your needs perfectly. Our team will work with you closely to ensure that the design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
