Paddle stairs, or space saver stairs, are used in place of normal steps to reduce the space taken up by your staircase. They can significantly increase the amount of room you have as the flights are manufactured at a steeper gradient than your run of mill staircase.
There’s something strangely satisfying about looking behind the scenes of an iconic building and there are fewer buildings more famous than the Houses of Parliament and the iconic Clock Tower. The tower was renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012 in honour of Queen Elizabeths jubilee and stands 96 meters tall housing 11 floors. The Elizabeth Tower is often mistakenly called Big Ben which is actually the name of the bell within the tower inscribed with the name of Sir Benjamin Hall, First Commissioner for Works after whom it is believed the bell takes it’s name.
Within the belfry (whose bells were first broadcast by the BBC in 1932) is a spiral with 334 steps with a total of 399 to the lantern (the Ayrton Light) and an elevator is also expected to be added during the current restoration work. You can take a trip up the historic staircase (without having sore legs in the morning) by watching the video below:

Space is a valuable resource, especially as modern homes get smaller. It makes sense to utilise the space under and around your staircase and there are many ways to do it. It may be a practical use or purely aesthetic. There’s no right or wrong – it’s a choice based on what’s best suited for you and your home. On our travels around the country we’ve seen some lovely uses of this space and this is a collection of some of our favourites.
