Case Studies - Painted White & White Oak staircase in a barn conversion.

REF: 4815-beadle

3D Model;

Notable Features:

Oak & Pine Staircase:

When ordering a staircase, it's normal to want to have the entire staircase manufactured from oak. However, ordering part of the staircase in pine or primed timber to paint saves money and often can look as good or better depending on your taste as it breaks up the materials and creates a striking contrast.

Stop Chamfered Components:

As standard, posts & spindles on stairs are square. However, on this staircase, the client opted to have them "stop chamfered", which is the extra detail on each edge seen in the photos. Stop chamfered balustrade gives a different look which can suit both traditional and modern interiors.

S-shape Staircase:

The majority of double-turn staircases turn 180 degrees back on themselves. However, there are circumstances such as this one where the stairs must have two turns that turn in opposite directions.

Carpeted Oak Staircase:

If an oak stair is to be carpeted, it doesn't make sense to supply the treads and risers oak, given the cost saving. As such, this staircase features MDF treads and plywood risers, ideally suited to carpeting.


  • Strings - Pine (230x32mm)
  • Treads - MDF (22mm)
  • Risers - Plywood (9mm)
  • Posts - White Oak, Stop Chamfered (90x90mm)

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.
