Next, we will see different aspects related to interior stairs design for houses, the minimum measurements to design STAIRS, the relationship between the tread and the riser and how long a staircase is to go up 3 meters.
As you can see, it is very useful technical information when you need to design and build an interior staircase.
Summary of Aspects about Indoor Stairs Design
- Measures of stairs for houses (dimensions of stairs)
- Minimum measurements of stairs (measures for the design of stairs)
- Width of a stair ( what is the minimum width of a stair ? )
- Step heights (risers)
- How to design a concrete staircase
- Design of stairs in small spaces
- How to calculate a stairs
- How to make a staircase with landing ?
- Every how many steps must a landing be included?
- What is the ideal height between the stairs and the ceiling?
- Stair styles
All these technical aspects will be covered in order to make a stair. During the tour, we will be looking at some interesting and modern interior stair design ideas.
Interior Stairs Design
In addition, we will see different shapes and types of stairs, such as spiral, straight, two-branch (sections) or helical staircases , whether they are for interior spaces in the home or in outdoor areas.
Interior Stairs Design Ideas
Seeing beautiful interior staircases in houses is the best way to be inspired by them and appreciate the details they have.
If you need ideas on how to decorate, or if you just want to admire the architecture of these internal staircase models, looking at this collection can be a great way to start.
The following example is a model built using steel and wood materials. The slope of this interior staircase with a single section, at first glance, looks adequate, being around 33-35 degrees of inclination.
We can also see how it is designed in a reduced space, through the wooden RAILINGS, which do not occupy the entire section, trying to give a greater sensation of spatiality and providing security from a height of one meter.
Ideally a stair should have no more than 16-18 steps in a row (for straight stairs) and it is recommended that a landing measure around the sum of 3 treads.

Interior Stairs Styles
The style depends a lot on the design of the house, elements such as handrails, steps (treads and risers), can be, for example, the material and color of the walls.
If materials such as wood have been used repeatedly in the house, these same elements should be applied to the design of the interior stairs.

What Measurements Should a Staircase Have According to the Regulations?
- The minimum width must be 80 cm, to make comfortable movements, with or without objects and furniture.
- The footprint should be at least 25 cm, although ideally it should be 28 to 31 cm.
- The riser must measure 18 cm maximum.

The design of stairs can also be classified according to the structural design that makes it up and supports it.
Within these we have the stairs with cantilever steps, slabs or reinforced concrete plates that are supported at their ends, self-supporting stairs, with a central beam that supports the steps, with two support beams, among others .
Curved Interior Stairs Style
Self-supporting Modern Staircase Style
The design of self-supporting stairs refers to those that have two sections (for example, U-shaped stairs) but do not have intermediate support (see previous image). Therefore, the structural element landing on its ends, leaving these embedded on the floor and mezzanine, as rigid elements.
These self-supporting stairs are usually very striking to the eye, and are built in spaces with a greater character that tend to receive a greater number of people, whether they are duplex homes or socio-cultural buildings.

Simple Interior Stairs Styles
The design of stairs with solid slab is another way of building this architectural and structural element. The stairs with solid slab is the way of building stairs that has been most used.
The procedure for its design is not very complex, since it is interpreted as the structural calculation of a solid slab supported at its ends, sub-dividing each calculation, according to the number of sections or branches that the staircase in question presents.
These stairs can have a single section (straight stairs), two sections, or 3 sections, generally.

How many Steps Before a Landing Stair?
The construction of a landing every 16 to 18 steps for straight stairs is recommended, depending on the regulations used. In the following article I explain it in detail.

Interior Stairs with Glass and Aluminum Railings
In the design of stairs for interiors of houses , it is very important, from the point of view of interior design, that there is a correspondence between the design of the staircase with the other elements of the interior space where it is located.
This relationship or correspondence must exist, both in the spatial design, the geometric model and its volumetry, as well as in the other more basic formal aspects, which are color, materials, textures, lighting, etc.
This allows to achieve a general harmony (see images) in the design and interior comfort.

What is the Ideal Height for the Handrail?
The height of the handrail can be between 80 to 95 cm, measured vertically from the top edge of each step.
What is the ideal height between the Staircase and the ceiling?
The height between the steps and the ceiling, which has been called “runaway”, should be 210 to 215 cm.
