Internal staircase position as per vastu:
Near the entrance is the best position to place an internal staircase in your home. According to Vastu Shastra, the staircase should always be made in the western or southern part of the house.
It should not be constructed in the northeast direction. It is recommended that the staircase in your house must always turn in a clockwise direction, i.e. either from north to south or from east to west.
The internal staircase should be such that it is directly visible to the visitor which is recommended by vastu shastra experts.
If you want to build your house upper floor for rental purposes, the internal stairs will not be suitable for your home. For that you have to make a stairway from outside the house.

The size of the tread of the stairs is decided by the size of the feet of the average person. That’s why we take 10-inch regular tread size.
It is not that for comfort and safety, our entire foot should fit on the tread; we can increase the size of the tread as per the requirements.
The height of the riser is maximum 7 inches. The riser height is limited by the way down the stairs. This riser height is comfortable to move on the next floor.
