Space saving stairs
Space saving stairs are usually required in interiors where space is limited, however, this does not mean that the resulting stair will be purely functional. Developments in design technology and the use of materials means that it’s possible to create a compact staircase, like a compact spiral staircase, that will still be a genuine design feature in the interior.
Truly compact staircase designs, such as our patented 1m2 option, should not require a large amount of floor space. A compact staircase should ideally also have a relatively limited weight and transport size to ensure smooth delivery and installation. While often associated with functional roles, such as connecting the upper floors of a home to a roof or attic space, it is possible to give space saver stairs your own personal touch, for instance in designing your narrow spiral staircase.
The 1m2, which was developed by EeStairs’ in-house specialists, is an example of how space saving stairs can be customised. Formed from robust steel, it can be powder coated in any RAL colour – so it’s a compact staircase that can be personalised. After all, why would you want a boring loft ladder when you can have space saving stairs that will also be a talking point in your home!

Frequently Asked Questions
Below you can see some of the frequently asked questions about our 1m2 small staircase. Click on the plus sign to view the answer. If you have any other questions, you can of course ask them!
Where can the 1m2 staircase be installed?
Whether used as an attic staircase, a small spiral staircase to a mezzanine, or a basement staircase - the space-saving 1m2 staircase can be installed (almost) anywhere. All 1m2 staircases are tailor-made for you and all that’s required is a stairwell of at least 1000 x 1000 mm in size, you must however keep in mind that a maximum of 13 steps can be used. We also recommend that the staircase completes at around 90% of the height between the floor and the upper floor which the staircase is designed to reach.
Does this staircase feature a handrail?
1m2 staircases can be supplied with or without handrail. Where required the handrail is a tubular steel item that rises helically around the raking centre column. We always recommend a handrail as it offers greater support and comfort, particularly to users unfamiliar with the stair.
How can you customise the 1m2 staircase?
The 1m2 staircase is a standard product with possibility for customisation. Based on the standard design, you can choose a number of options in terms of form and material. This means that you can create your own unique staircase, perfectly suiting the environment your 1m2 is designed to serve.
You should also consider whether you would like a handrail or not, the staircase’s colour, height, the number of treads and the width of treads. We are able to offer delivery in parts (to be fitted on-site) and designs that can be self-assembled.
This 1m2 is a great alternative to often dull attic staircases that can be customised to suit you and your space!
What costs are associated with the 1m2 staircase?
The 1m2 by EeStairs is available from 2,400 Euros (excluding installation and VAT). You should, however, remember that the 1m2 staircase can be customised in a number of ways.
