Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Key Measurements for Designing the Perfect Stairway9 August 2017

The total height of the rise of a staircase depends on the height of the ceiling and depth of the upper-floor structure. With a taller ceiling, such as the one pictured, more risers and treads are needed to make the staircase function. For example, if your risers are 6 in. each and your ceiling is 9 ft. high with a 1-ft. upper-floor-structure depth, you will have to ascend 10 feet. It will take 20 6-in. risers to make it all the way up. If we can increase the risers to 8 in. each, we will need only 15. So, when you have 20 6-in. risers, you will need 19 12-in. treads for a total stair run of 19 feet. When you have 15 8-in. risers, you will need 14 treads of only 9 in. each. Now your stair run needs to be only 10 ft., 6 in. The run is significantly shorter and takes up much less square footage.
