Case Studies - White Oak staircase with two quarter landings, stop chamfered posts, spindles and pyramid caps.

REF: 13630-dowsett

3D Model;

Notable Features:

Stop Chamfered Posts & Spindles:

The majority of stairs feature square posts & spindles. However, the stop-chamfered posts and spindles on this staircase have a feature on each corner, which can be seen in the photos.

Half Turn With Quarter Landings:

This stair features two turns. For each turn, you have the option of;
  • A kite winder (three treads in the turn)
  • A quarter landing (one tread in the turn)
A kite winder saves space as you're putting three treads in the same area where you'd only have one tread if it were a quarter landing. Meaning you need fewer treads in the straight runs. However, if you have the space, a quarter landing looks better, costs less and is more pleasant to walk up.

Shallow staircase:

The maximum pitch for domestic building regulations (in a house) is 42°. The majority of stairs we manufacture are to 42°. However, if you have the space and want a more pleasant staircase to walk up, it's possible to have the pitch shallower (less steep) than 42°. At only 38.5°, this staircase is significantly shallower (less steep) than the maximum allowable 42°, so although it will take up more space, it will be far nicer to walk up and look more aesthetically pleasing.

Gallery Landing Area With Spindles:

At the top of this staircase, there's a gallery landing area which goes all the way around the stairs, creating an exciting feature and helping this staircase make a real statement. The 41mm oak stop chamfered posts spindles the client picked finish it off nicely.

Carpet Runner:

Carpet runners work best on a wide staircase because space is at a premium on a narrow staircase, so a carpet runner probably wouldn't look aesthetically correct on a narrow stair. This staircase being relatively wide, a carpet runner works well.

We Design & Manufacture Staircases

TKstairs is one of the UK’s leading staircase manufacturers, we now manufacture in excess of 100 staircases per week delivering throughout the UK from our state of the art manufacturing facility near Hull.

Popular Staircase Layouts

Straight Staircases:

Straight staircases have no turns in them.

Quarter Turn Staircases:

These have a single turn, turning left or right, which can be either a landing or kite winder.

Half Turn Staircases:

These have two turns, left or right. Using kite winders, landings or a half landing.

For straight stairs, quarter turn stairs (single turn) or half turn staircases (two turns), these can be ordered on our website and are available for fast delivery.

Paddle Staircases:

Also known as space saver or loft staircases, these are half the length of a normal staircase but can only be used in certain scenarios.

Other Layouts:

We also offer other staircase layouts, these include, paddle stairs, S-shape stairs, T-shape stairs or stairs with three or more turns. We also offer stairs suitable for commercial buildings which are wider and made from more substantial materials than domestic staircases.

Styles & Materials

Construction Methods:

All layouts of staircases can be constructed in different ways which will effect the final finish, these include:

  • Open riser construction; this is where the risers are left open with either a timber strip or metal bar built in to comply to regulations.
  • Cut string construction; where the sides of the strings are cut away so the treads can be seen, this can either be done in a modern or traditional way.


The materials used on your staircase will have a dramatic effect on how they look, most stairs will use the following materials.

  • Pine; all our stairs are manufactured from high quality furniture grade pine, we do not use any whitewood.
  • White Oak; we can manufacture all or part(s) of your staircase from premium White Oak, to give that stunning finish.
  • Glass; we offer stairs with glass balustrade, either as small panels or large panels, secured with brackets or by embedding with a groove.
