Spiral staircase saves space in small house
Q. I recently purchased a small ranch home with a spiral staircase leading to a room in the basement. I would like to remove this and replace it with a standard staircase. I have looked into this and am told that it could be done. But, I would have to lose approximately 8 feet of my kitchen.
My kitchen is very small, so I cannot do this. Is there any other way to replace the staircase without loss of space in the kitchen? Please advise.
A. The spiral staircase was installed because of the space restrictions. Since you cannot spare the space needed for a standard staircase, the two options I see are for you to keep the spiral staircase or replace it with an attractive wood ladder.by
