Stairs are an important architectural element of any house or apartment. In addition to their basic structural role, they also play a vital aesthetic role when designing interior furnishings. Stairs form a part of the building structure, which is why it is important to think about their appearance during the construction phase, so that all the envisioned colours and materials will match the rest of the furnishings. Lighting and the choice of handrails and guardrails are also no small matter, and including them into the initial design should be a special kind of priority.

If the stairs are not flanked by a bearing wall, the space beneath the stairs can be used in very creative ways, however, the design of this space does depend on the function of the room.
