Rather than an afterthought, the staircase should be a key element within the design process, as there are many different means to achieve distinctive looks. Whether you are cladding an existing staircase or building a bespoke design, we can fabricate matching timber, made to measure, to fit your requirements. Our excellent team of fitters have years of experience and a real eye for detail to ensure the highest standard of carpentry.
The steps themselves can be finished in various ways. For a modern, minimal look the step can be joined in a 90-degree angle, making a neat and minimal square edge, exaggerating the angularity of the steps and complementing a paired-back, contemporary scheme.
Using an overhanging, rounded bullnose on the tread of the step gives a more traditional look. The bullnose can be carried through to the short side of the step too, giving an extra tailored architectural element to a staircase.
Safety on the steps is paramount everywhere but is especially important on commercial projects. Built-in spotlights illuminating the tread is a clever way of increasing visibility while adding a lovely design detail. Anti-slip metal bars, obligatory in public places, can also be incorporated.
