Spiral staircases can be the ideal choice to install a staircase where floor space is limited. If you’re landing is compact then you may be able to make a bit of extra space by opening a cupboard up.

Their Civic Spiral staircase starts from a very reasonable £769 and comes in black, white or silver at various thread sizes and is suitable for different heights by reducing or adding treads.
You can order kits direct or have Bergenscanner Loft UK help with the survey and installation. As with standard staircases, there are regulations to guide you, which take into account how the stairs will be used e.g small private, main household stair or semi-public, as well as the dimensions of the stairs and gaps between treads and spindles.
Spiral stairs have proved very popular in recent years for loft conversions due to their space saving and aesthetic qualities and can be as small as a 100cm diameter spiral staircase but for building regulations purposes they often have to be at least 1400mm diameter stair.
Compact Staircases and Alternating treads
Compact stairs which look more like traditional stairs but steeper with smaller treads will be permitted in some circumstances (to access single rooms like the main bedroom with ensuite allowed). However, these types of the stair aren’t really suited for the elderly, children or people with mobility problems.
Loft ladders aren’t permitted in any case for a loft conversion.
