Out of many shapes and sizes, one popular one is called doglegged staircase which is a simple form of staircase made with wood, glass, cast iron or wrought iron, in which a flight of stair ascents to a half-landing before turning into 180 degrees, and continuing upwards. Due to its unique shape and structure, it is also called sectional, as one sectional ascents to a half landing before another sectional starts at 180 degrees and so on.

Handrail of Doglegged Staircase
The only con of installing a nice doglegged staircase is that of a less smooth handrail experience as the sections are separated in the designs. In other words, the direction of the handrail changes right at the junction of the doglegged staircase where it turns. But in term of its function in a house it is safe, takes less space and comfortable to use even by elderly people. Not good or ideal if you want to install a staircase elevator or lift for elderly people though.
