Notable Features:

"T-Shape" Staircase

T-shape stairs are relatively unusual as few properties have the space or require one. However, if the space is available, a t-shape staircase can make a hallway look amazing, such as in the case of this property.

Continuous Handrail:

Continuous handrail systems allow you to walk up the staircase without removing your hand from the handrail as it sits on top of the post rather than running into it. The issue with continuous handrails is that it's challenging to fit and have a tendency to come apart and/or wobble if not installed correctly. The oak balustrade system on this staircase is the Richard Burbidge "Classic White Oak" system. We no longer keep this in stock, but we can order it as a special order.

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 wide on the flight one, works well and looks proportional.

Different Widths:

This staircase is unusual because the width of flight one is much wider (1292mm) than that of flight two (770mm). However, this is not uncommon on a t-shape staircase as it saves space, while still giving the grand look from the bottom that most people aim to achieve. Exceptionally wide flights like flight one (1292mm) of this staircase require an additional support string up the centre to give stability.

Oak Single Going Curtail Feature Tread:

A feature tread to the bottom of a staircase adds an interesting detail. This staircase features a "single going curtail", which protrudes past the width of the stairs by 175mm (at each side). Single going curtail treads are excellent if you have space for them. However, if you don't, you can also opt for a different feature tread (such as a bullnose) which doesn't protrude past the width of the stair.

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.
