Oak & Painted Staircase:

When specifying and buying a staircase, there are many material options available.
Often, customers opt for the entire staircase in oak or to paint the whole staircase.
However, a mix of materials, such as in the case of this staircase, can look quite effective and is much more cost-effective than having the entire stair in oak.

We do not generally recommend painting the "touch points", i.e. handrail caps & treads, as the paint can easily chip and look unsightly.
This stair follows that rule featuring oak treads, handrail and caps, with the rest of the stair painted. 

Feature Treads:

This staircase features two feature treads.
- Tread one is a double-going curtail (square).
- Tread two is a single-going curtail (square).

These two feature treads allow the bottom post to be set back by two treads (approx 500mm). Allowing the hallway to feel bigger and giving the staircase a grander appearance.
On this staircase, it also means flight one can be balustrade free.

Quarter Landing:

A turn can be either a quarter landing or a kite winder.
Quarter landings are more pleasant to walk up but take up more space.

With a kite winder, you get three treads within roughly the same space as a quarter landing, which is one tread.
As there's ample space, this staircase features a quarter landing.

Customer Feedback

Really high quality and exceptional value, the ordering process was really smooth with the design team able to help us find the right solution for our space; we were able to compare and price up different options until we found the perfect solution. Our builders found it straight forward to assemble and they were millimetre perfect to the design. All of our friends and family comment on how beautiful our stairs are, we would happily recommend to anyone! - Mr Stevens

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.
