Noth­ing dec­o­rates the inte­ri­or like a styl­ish stair­case, designed accord­ing to all the rules and cor­rect­ly locat­ed in space. It is easy to repeat this com­mon truth, but it is much more dif­fi­cult to explain what the con­cepts “styl­ish”, “cor­rect­ly” and “com­pe­tent­ly” mean.

Law is law

Usu­al­ly, speak­ing of decor, we empha­size that there are only rec­om­mend­ed, but by no means manda­to­ry rules: every­one dec­o­rates their home as they please. Stairs- an impor­tant struc­tur­al ele­ment of the build­ing, which large­ly deter­mines the image of the inte­ri­or. That is why it is a zone of spe­cial atten­tion, with­in which the unshak­able laws of archi­tec­ture oper­ate. Their vio­la­tion can lead to the most sad con­se­quences. We do not mean the norms of func­tion­al­i­ty and safe­ty. Of course, they must be strict­ly observed. In this case, the rule of styl­is­tic uni­ty also acquires the sta­tus of law. Sup­pose we have long been accus­tomed to bypass it with the help of the mag­ic word “eclec­ti­cism” (mix­ture of styles), how­ev­er, believe me, its pow­er is not always omnipo­tent. Whether we like it or not, no one has can­celed the con­cept of style in archi­tec­ture. This does not mean that the choice is hope­less­ly lim­it­ed. Over the mil­len­nia of the exis­tence of stairs, so many dif­fer­ent decor options have been devel­oped that it is impos­si­ble to sim­ply list them with­in the frame­work of a review arti­cle. The selec­tion is huge, but…

Set realistic goals

Even if the achieve­ments of democ­ra­cy and the avail­abil­i­ty of cer­tain funds instill in you com­plete con­fi­dence in your own abil­i­ties and knowl­edge, do not rush to make an inde­pen­dent deci­sion- turn to pro­fes­sion­als. It is with them that it is worth dis­cussing all the fea­tures of the future stairs at the ini­tial stage of inte­ri­or design. A com­mon mis­take, when a stair­case is remem­bered only at the final stage of fin­ish­ing work, leads to the fact that an accept­able mod­el is either extreme­ly dif­fi­cult or sim­ply impos­si­ble to find. In addi­tion, it is no secret that at this stage the own­er of a two-sto­ry apart­ment or a house out­side the city, who has already spent an impres­sive amount on con­struc­tion, dec­o­ra­tion or repair, is look­ing for an option that is opti­mal not so much in design as in cost. Anoth­er prob­lem is some­what psy­cho­log­i­cal in nature. Of course, any cus­tomer wants to real­ize their gold­en dreams. And in this case, the com­mon for­mu­la “the cus­tomer is always right” can play a trick on you. Note that a true pro­fes­sion­al will nev­er promise you to build a copy of the Jor­dan Stairs or repeat the mas­ter­piece of Fyo­dor Shekhtel in the space of a two-lev­el apart­ment. ToUnfor­tu­nate­ly, accord­ing to experts, in our inte­ri­ors there are many exam­ples of illit­er­ate and taste­less stairs. Is it worth it to increase them?

The clas­si­fi­ca­tion and tech­ni­cal fea­tures of stairs have been dis­cussed in detail in many pre­vi­ous arti­cles of our mag­a­zine.- “Stairs”, “Cau­tion, ahead of the soup!”, “With and with­out rail­ings”, “Ver­ti­cal trav­el”. Let me once again remind you of a few basic terms relat­ed to the design of stairs.

Bolz- a steel ele­ment built into the wall and con­nect­ing the steps to each oth­er.
Kosour- an inclined beam, on which the steps of the flight of stairs rest from above.
bow­string- an inclined lon­gi­tu­di­nal beam, into the side faces of which steps cut.
rail­ing- safe­ty fenc­ing of stair­cas­es and land­ings.
tread- the hor­i­zon­tal part of the step.
ris­er- the ver­ti­cal part of the step, which serves as an addi­tion­al sup­port for the tread, per­forms a pro­tec­tive func­tion.
handrail- a struc­tur­al ele­ment fixed on a rail­ing or on a wall and giv­ing a per­son sup­port when walk­ing.

In a given space

Staircase - area of ​​special attention “SAVEKS STAIRS”
In a house where there are wood­en stairs, it is nec­es­sary to main­tain a con­stant lev­el of humid­i­ty. Indoor plants are very use­ful in this case! The main thing, as the great Stanislavsky taught,- Pro­posed cir­cum­stances. BUTthey are in each indi­vid­ual inte­ri­or- var­i­ous. Hence, don’t expect (anoth­er known bug) a ready made one-size-fits-all solu­tion. Experts will con­firm that before pro­ceed­ing with the design, they not only per­form all the nec­es­sary mea­sure­ments and cal­cu­la­tions (to help- a huge amount of ref­er­ence lit­er­a­ture), but also car­ry out pho­to and video shoot­ing of the object. ATAs a result, the cus­tomer will be offered a three-dimen­sion­al com­put­er image of the inte­ri­or with one or anoth­er ver­sion of the stairs. Thus, already at the ini­tial design stage, it becomes nec­es­sary not only to think over the decor of the mod­el, but also to cre­ate a decent envi­ron­ment for it. Note that pro­fes­sion­als do not match the stairs to the fur­ni­ture (a fair­ly com­mon mis­take), but, on the con­trary, start the inte­ri­or design from the archi­tec­tur­al form, which, of course, is more log­i­cal.

Point of departure- destination

First of all, you should deter­mine exact­ly where you want to install the stairs. As a rule (but it does not always work), this is a hall-liv­ing room on the ground floor and a liv­ing space upstairs. Some­times a stair­case con­nects a hall and a bed­room, a hall and a library, and is installed in the din­ing room or in the kitchen. How­ev­er, if there is a cer­tain scope, any of these non-tra­di­tion­al options can be not only accept­able, but also very inter­est­ing. ATIn any case, there are two sim­ple rules to remem­ber. The stair­case should occu­py a min­i­mum of usable space (in the cen­ter of the room or in the cor­ner). Its steps (in any case, the first few) should face the front door.

“March” or “screw”?

Staircase - area of ​​special attention ALFA SCALE
Mod­els- ide­al for high tech style. Struc­tures made of glass and steel seem weight­less, but in fact they are very durable. As you know, all stairs are struc­tural­ly divid­ed into two types: mid-flight and spi­ral. The spe­cif­ic choice is deter­mined by many fac­tors, among which the most impor­tant place is occu­pied by the con­ve­nience of move­ment and the spa­tial pos­si­bil­i­ties of the inte­ri­or. “March”- the most tra­di­tion­al and always in demand option, not too, how­ev­er, appro­pri­ate in small rooms. The “screw” requires less space, looks amaz­ing, but be aware that winders can be a big chal­lenge for the elder­ly and young chil­dren (although it is chil­dren who love such designs). The decor of mod­ern stairs is quite diverse. Man­u­fac­tur­ers now offer both screw and march­ing mod­els in almost any style.

Material for reflection

You can talk end­less­ly about the dec­o­ra­tive role of the stairs in the inte­ri­or. But the very first ques­tion that the own­er of the house decides togeth­er with the design­er is- choice of mate­r­i­al. Of course, much will be deter­mined by style, but there are a num­ber of cer­tain rules. Before mov­ing on to the style fea­tures, we briefly describe the main mate­ri­als used for the man­u­fac­ture of stairs.

Wood: the charm of tra­di­tion. For the man­u­fac­ture of load-bear­ing struc­tures and fin­ish­es, var­i­ous types of wood are used: soft (these are larch, pine, spruce) and hard (beech, oak, maple andt.d.). Valu­able breeds are also used for dec­o­ra­tion.- cher­ry, teak, rose­wood andoth­ers

It is believed that in load-bear­ing struc­tures, the con­ju­ga­tion of sev­er­al types of wood is unde­sir­able (due to dif­fer­ent coef­fi­cients of expan­sion of their fibers and dif­fer­ences in phys­i­cal and mechan­i­cal prop­er­ties). Such restric­tions do not apply to dec­o­ra­tion. But since the stair­case is a ver­ti­cal struc­ture, it is cus­tom­ary to “coor­di­nate” it with the ver­ti­cal ele­ments of the inte­ri­or (pri­mar­i­ly with doors and win­dows). Every­one will sure­ly agree that you should not com­bine doors fin­ished with col­ored plas­tic with nat­ur­al oak stairs. BUTif we are talk­ing about a tree of dif­fer­ent species? Yes, the prob­lem is not as sim­ple as it seems.

For exam­ple, there is a stereo­type accord­ing to which it is nec­es­sary not only to main­tain the entire inte­ri­or in the same style, but also to select wood of only the same tex­ture and tone.- both for par­quet, and for stairs, win­dows, doors and even fur­ni­ture. It is not enough to say that such a deci­sion is com­plete­ly inex­pres­sive and dull, it (in rela­tion to the stairs, in any case) is also absolute­ly wrong. Imag­ine how steps and rail­ings made of light oak or beech will look against the back­ground of exact­ly the same par­quet. They just won’t show up! A com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent impres­sion will be made by the inte­ri­or, in which the own­ers and design­ers were not too lazy to pick up wood that dif­fers in tex­ture and tone.

The fact that the tex­ture of the tree itself is a won­der­ful dec­o­ra­tion that does not need any addi­tions has long been known. That is why a wood­en stair­case is extreme­ly rarely paint­ed (some­times only the rail­ing handrails are high­light­ed in bright col­or, but such an empha­sis should be jus­ti­fied by some inte­ri­or detail). Usu­al­ly they use tint­ing and par­quet var­nish, empha­siz­ing the nat­ur­al beau­ty of the mate­r­i­al.

Treads, ris­ers made of wood of dif­fer­ent shades- also not a crime. More­over, the pro­trud­ing relief ele­ment on the tread can also dif­fer in tone. The same applies to the fence. Fig­ured balus­ters and handrails, trimmed with wood of dif­fer­ent shades, make the stair­case ele­gant and do not vio­late any clas­si­cal canons. The style that we now call clas­sic is in fact the most com­plete embod­i­ment of tra­di­tion­al ideas about cozy and at the same time respectable hous­ing. That is why, with all the tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions, wood­en stairs remain in demand and loved.

Rec­tan­gu­lar or slight­ly round­ed steps on a wood­en bow­string or stringer (they are some­times dec­o­rat­ed with carv­ings) with a wood­en fenceThese are tru­ly clas­sic designs. Note that the main style-form­ing ele­ment here is the fence. Fig­ured carved or chis­elled balus­ters, four main pil­lars with char­ac­ter­is­tic bumps (there should not be sharp finials on the rail­ing) or sculp­tur­al decor tes­ti­fy to the tra­di­tion­al-clas­si­cal ori­en­ta­tion of the inte­ri­or. Very often rail­ings of wood­en stairs are made with met­al inserts of var­i­ous con­fig­u­ra­tions. So, the com­bi­na­tion of dark wood and yel­low pol­ished met­al gives the inte­ri­or splen­dor and splen­dor. True, in such a sit­u­a­tion, the main thing- do not over­do it, oth­er­wise you will cer­tain­ly have to pick up oth­er shiny met­al acces­sories “tone on tone” to the decor of the stairs. After all, “not every­thing that glit­ters,” accord­ing to a well-known proverb, cor­re­sponds to palace lux­u­ry.

Staircase - area of ​​special attention KENNGOTT TREPPE
An illus­tra­tive exam­ple of the right design deci­sion. It is the dec­o­ra­tion of the stairs that deter­mines the col­or that dom­i­nates the inte­ri­or. Blue lamp shade- a good addi­tion The base of the stairs and land­ings in such cas­es, it is also cus­tom­ary to veneer with wood. ATsym­met­ri­cal­ly arranged floor vas­es, sculp­tures, and lamps are often used as addi­tion­al dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments. Pic­tures are hung on the walls along the flight of stairs, spe­cial nich­es are made for acces­sories (excep­tion- a spi­ral stair­case: noth­ing should dis­tract the atten­tion of a per­son walk­ing along it). Car­pet cov­er­ing- anoth­er way to give such a notice­able ele­ment of the inte­ri­or a for­mal and solemn look.

How­ev­er, mod­els with wood­en steps can­not be attrib­uted exclu­sive­ly to the clas­sics. For exam­ple, handrail posts made of pol­ished steel tubes, plas­tic or glass look excep­tion­al­ly mod­ern. Besko­surny can­tilever designs on the bolts seem quite accept­able in a min­i­mal­ist inte­ri­or. Wrought iron rail­ings are able to remind you of sophis­ti­cat­ed mod­ern or (depend­ing on the con­fig­u­ra­tion) of the pop­u­lar coun­try style. Let’s dwell on the coun­try in a lit­tle more detail. Rus­tic style implies some delib­er­ate rough­ness, raw­ness. Light beech and oak- ide­al for cre­at­ing an ingen­u­ous­ly warm atmos­phere in the inte­ri­or. The use of met­al ele­ments in this case is lim­it­ed to forg­ing. Tra­di­tion­al car­pet­ing should be aban­doned, but a mot­ley “path” in the patch­work style will come in handy.

Met­al and glass: from goth­ic to high tech. Artis­tic forg­ing, cast­ing, chrome-plat­ed or gild­ed parts- all this adorns the stair­case made of met­al. ATunlike wood­en prod­ucts, they are often cov­ered with paint, spray­ing andt.P.

Staircase - area of ​​special attention KENNGOTT TREPPE
Glass steps, met­al rail­ing posts, a rope-like handrail,- the design seems to hang in the air. You have to be very care­ful when walk­ing up this lad­der! Pure met­al struc­tures are not very com­mon. Sur­pris­ing­ly beau­ti­ful spi­ral stair­cas­es with open­work steps and forged rail­ings. They remind us of medieval Goth­ic, when “trans­par­ent” struc­tures aspired upward and were as if woven from air and light. Mod­ern Goth­ic, unfor­tu­nate­ly, rarely meets tra­di­tion, if only because only a very rich per­son can afford to fol­low all the canons. Stained-glass lancet win­dows, stone slabs on the floor, char­ac­ter­is­tic lanterns… How­ev­er, more or less appro­pri­ate acces­sories and fur­ni­ture can be used to sup­port the style, giv­ing pref­er­ence to forg­ing and col­ored glass.

The impres­sion of weight­less lace is pro­duced by con­sole mod­els, quite mod­ern in appear­ance. FROMthey are some­what eas­i­er to deal with. In fact, they are uni­ver­sal and can fit into any envi­ron­ment (if, of course, do not for­get about the tex­ture and col­or).

Pol­ished steel mod­els, espe­cial­ly in com­bi­na­tion with glass- the “iden­ti­fi­ca­tion mark” of a style that has won gen­er­al recog­ni­tion, but con­tin­ues to cause a lot of con­tro­ver­sy. high tech- high-tech style, in many respects con­trary to gen­er­al­ly accept­ed ideas about home warmth and com­fort. A trans­par­ent stair­case with glass steps (high-strength lam­i­nat­ed glass is used here) and a rail­ing made of pol­ished steel, as if dis­solved in space,- this is the per­fect option for such a tech­no­crat­ic inte­ri­or. At the same time, rail­ing posts and handrails are often made of tubu­lar stain­less steel, and thin met­al cables are used as lon­gi­tu­di­nal ele­ments of the fence. The design seems extreme­ly frag­ile, almost weight­less, how­ev­er, in terms of reli­a­bil­i­ty, such mod­els are in no way infe­ri­or to the clas­sic ones. There is no decor as such. But it is impor­tant to think about the issue of safe­ty. In order not to slip, spe­cial strips are applied to the glass steps with abra­sive mate­r­i­al, which increase the coef­fi­cient of fric­tion.

Stone: eter­nal lux­u­ry. Stone stairs have been known since ancient times. High wear resis­tance, strength, unsur­passed dec­o­ra­tive pos­si­bil­i­ties- all this is one of the indis­putable advan­tages of mod­els made using nat­ur­al stone. For steps, only rocks mined in a non-explo­sive way are used.

Fenc­ing from such a heavy mate­r­i­al is now made quite rarely, most often they are made of met­al. Usu­al­ly, handrails are paint­ed in one col­or or anoth­er, cor­re­spond­ing to the unique tex­ture of the stone, whether it is mar­ble with noble veins or strict gran­ite. Blue tones are com­bined with blue, light ocher with dark brown, etc. It is impor­tant that these col­or accents are sup­port­ed by oth­er inte­ri­or ele­ments. For exam­ple, handrails, plinth and plat­bands can be paint­ed in one shade, and win­dow sills can be made from the same stone as the steps. Sculp­tures, dec­o­ra­tive flow­er­pots, lamps- all this will give addi­tion­al splen­dor to your inte­ri­or. And it does­n’t mat­ter if it’s clas­sic or absolute­ly mod­ern in spir­it.

Note that nat­ur­al stone is some­times suc­cess­ful­ly replaced with arti­fi­cial or ceram­ic tiles. For fac­ing steps, a spe­cial set is used: a tile-step, a curly cor­nice, ris­ers and a plinth. We do not rec­om­mend that you install these parts your­self. The process is not only time-con­sum­ing, but also requires great pro­fes­sion­al skills. Cost of work- about $5 for 1m2. It should be borne in mind that when using tiles on the steps, con­nect­ing seams will be notice­able. Tiles accord­ing to the width of the step (sol­id) can be ordered, for exam­ple, from porce­lain stoneware or some oth­er arti­fi­cial stone.

Embossed strips — pro­tru­sions or depres­sions, as well as strips of abra­sive mate­r­i­al- a manda­to­ry attribute of both stone and tiled steps. The same role is played by car­pets on a spe­cial anti-slip basis.

Present in the right light

Dec­o­ra­tive sconces on the wall, designed in a cer­tain style,- anoth­er way to solve the prob­lem of stair illu­mi­na­tion Rea­son­able illu­mi­na­tion of steps is nec­es­sary from the point of view of func­tion­al­i­ty and safe­ty. In this case, there is a won­der­ful oppor­tu­ni­ty to achieve anoth­er inter­est­ing dec­o­ra­tive effect. Dur­ing the day, there is enough light on the stairs from the street pass­ing through a reg­u­lar or stained-glass win­dow, but with the onset of dark­ness or in cloudy weath­er, arti­fi­cial light­ing is required, both local and gen­er­al. The gen­er­al light on the stairs is made dif­fused, bright enough, but in no case blind­ing: the treads should be clear­ly vis­i­ble from the first to the last. Typ­i­cal­ly, wall lights are used for this, locat­ed at a height of about 2m above the stairs (often they are also the illu­mi­na­tion of paint­ings or nich­es). The decor of the pla­fonds, of course, should be com­bined in style with the dec­o­ra­tion of the stairs. Par­tic­u­lar atten­tion should be paid to met­al parts. For exam­ple, if the handrails are equipped with chrome inserts, the met­al parts of the fix­tures should also be chrome-plat­ed, but in no case gold-plat­ed. Anoth­er com­mon solu­tion- point light sources on the ceil­ing or (if we are talk­ing about a clas­sic inte­ri­or) a front chan­de­lier above the flight of stairs. One can recall, for exam­ple, the famous jel­ly­fish chan­de­lier from the Ryabushin­sky man­sion, designed by Shekhtel and per­fect­ly com­bined with his stun­ning­ly beau­ti­ful wave stair­case.

For local light­ing, sources are used that are at the junc­tion of the wall and the flight of stairs, at an equal dis­tance from each oth­er, or built into the ris­ers. Glass steps are often illu­mi­nat­ed with built-in LEDs (high-tech lovers espe­cial­ly like the shin­ing “hang­ing” designs).

One way or anoth­er, large­ly thanks to the light­ing, the stair­case stands out from the sur­round­ing space, becom­ing a tru­ly front area of ​​the inte­ri­or.

The reality is this

To date, it is too ear­ly to talk about a high­ly devel­oped mar­ket for stair prod­ucts, but a num­ber of Russ­ian com­pa­nies have already appeared that are engaged in the design and sale of for­eign mod­els. ATat the moment, the prod­ucts of ALFA SCALE fac­to­ries (Italy) are pre­sent­ed on the Russ­ian mar­ket, NILUR (Italy), RINTAL INTERNATIONAL, FREWA (Ger­many), HENKE (Ger­many), KENNGOTT TREPPEN (Ger­many), SWN MORAVIA (Czech Repub­lic), COFFMAN (USA) andoth­ers

The price of a stair­case is affect­ed by the cost of the project and mate­ri­als, design fea­tures, the use of com­plex tech­nolo­gies or man­u­al labor for the man­u­fac­ture of high­ly artis­tic details. This also includes, as a rule, deliv­ery and instal­la­tion.

If we talk about wood, then the cheap­est and at the same time, of course, the least durable will be mod­els made of pine or larch.- about $3000 with stan­dard sizes and designs. More expen­sive (from $6000) qual­i­ty stairs made of hard­wood (beech or oak). Approx­i­mate­ly at the same price lev­el are met­al mod­els with­out com­plex decor. Back in 1.5–2times the cost of prod­ucts made of stone and glass. Speak­ing of cost, in this case we mean tra­di­tion­al sin­gle-march struc­tures (they can be select­ed from the man­u­fac­tur­er’s cat­a­log).

If you want to see some­thing unusu­al in design in your house, with rare and exot­ic wood fin­ish­es, that is, a real work of author­ship, the costs will increase sev­er­al times more.

Price of an elite mod­el- from $15000. Of course, we admit it direct­ly, you can’t call such a mod­est amount, but we want to remind you once again that the stairs- it is not only dec­o­ra­tive, but also a con­struc­tive ele­ment of your house. So the deci­sion is up to you.

The edi­tors would like to thank SAVEKS STAIRS and KENNGOTT TREPPEN for their help in prepar­ing the mate­r­i­al.
