Modern Timber Staircase supplied to a refurbishment in Nottingham creating a stunning visual impact.
Supplying stunning staircases which make an impression is what we are all¬† -¬† ¬†about and this quarter turn flight timber staircase certainly hits the spot.¬†¬† Oak treads with a white cut stringer matches beautifully to the stairs surrounds with the open risers keeping it light and open.
We like it and certainly the customer did as they sent these snaps.
Yes, I know they didn‚Äôt have balustrade and no it doesn‚Äôt meet building regulations.¬† This was pointed out the client but they weren‚Äôt subject to planning as it was a small refurbishment ‚Äď plus they didn‚Äôt have any children!¬† Glass panels or spindles in stainless or timber can be retrofitted if required.
Check out the curved stringer detail – adds a lovely feature dont you think!
If you would like a price for a similar timber staircase ‚Äď please get in touch.¬† Crucially we need to know the shape of the stair (straight flight, quarter turn, half turn), the height and the timber you would like.¬† Call us on 01794 522444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.¬†¬† You can of course pop into our new showroom in Romsey- please call to make an appointment.

A solid beech ‘WF staircase’ supplied to a customer in East Grinstead in West Sussex.¬† A tight opening in the first floor required a small half turn flight twisting to the right upon assent.¬†¬† The beauty of the WF staircase is the lack of internal stringer and open risers¬†giving a very open feel to the flight.¬† Although this customer didnt go for this, we can also remove the stringer from the external side of the first four treads and the final flight (leaving only a wall stringer) creating a real floating feel.
This staircase can be supplied as a straight flight, quarter turn and can be made to suit a much larger opening.¬† It is manufacturer in any hardwood with oak extremely popular at the moment.¬† Stunning options include curved internal handrails, special L shaped tread/riser profiles and a white wall stringer to further emphasise the floating feel.
Have a look at the links below for further examples of the WF staircase – in all its glory.

Have finally worked though the enquiries from the Grand Designs show but have been neglecting the blog posts.¬† Here we go then ‚Äď
This long standing customer of ours based in Shaftesbury, Wilts, was building a new property which required a new feature staircase.¬†The¬†requirement was for¬†simple clean lines, a modern and open feel¬†¬†and of course it had to fall within the allocated budget .
Our traditional structure stair was selected in beech parquet timber, with open risers and polished stainless steel spindles.¬† Our Traditional structure certainly doesn‚Äôt mean traditional style as you can see in the pictures ‚Äď it refers to the way the stair is supported, with two stringers either side.
Beech parquet is a very popular choice at present.¬† With this option the timber is still solid beech but each block is made up of smaller pieces giving a more pronounced stripe effect.¬† ¬†It is about 15% cheaper than solid beech and is often requested to match a parquet floor.
Our ‚Äėtraditional‚Äô structure stairs are available in a variety of configurations, designs and materials. Remember ‚Äď traditional structure but modern design.¬† Combining solid timber with open and light balustrade options.

Some really stunning pictures of a WF timber staircase supplied to a customer near us in Ringwood.
Our customer sent in the pictures and he has really captured the floating feel the staircase has given the refurbishment.
The WF timber staircase has no internal / exposed stringer – only one on the wall side so the entire flight appears to float in mid air.
In this instance the wall stringer was supplied ‘cover painted white’ to further emphasise the floating feel.
This model was supply in a quarter turn with a stunning swooping curved handrail at the 90 degree turn.¬† If you look closely at the pictures you will see a small platform at floor level which was required to ensure the wall stringer missed the doorway below whilst maintaining sufficient headroom.
This model was supplied with beech parquet treads and handrail which the customer oiled himself to match the surrounding timber of the doors and windows.¬†¬†¬† I am sure you agree the result is truly spectacular!!!!
As usual – please let us know the height, configuration and timber you would like.
Further examples of this model can be seen on the links below.

A few pictures of a WF Oak staircase supplied to a refurbishment in Teddington, London.¬† Quite an unusual project as we actually supplied two small straight flights to create a quarter turn arrangement.¬† Our customer already had a mid platform in place.¬†
The stair itself is our ever popular WF system with only a wall stringer for support.¬† This creates a nice open floating feel to the staircase which in this instance was constructed in Oak.¬† Our customer opted for 20mm diameter Oak spindles for the staircase and glass infill panels for the upper landing level allowing the passage of light.¬† Instead of being held in place by steel clamps, this glass balustrade actually sat in groves in the handrail / floor rail / newel posts, creating a striking seamless effect.

Some pictures of our ever popular WF timber staircase installed near us in Southampton.¬† Being a local job¬†and such a stunning design we got Romsey Fotografix¬†in to take a couple of professional shots.¬†¬† We obviously have a number of¬† pics but have only displayed a few here – please call if you would like to see some more.
The stair itself is an OAK WF Staircase¬† – in this case witha white wall stringer and an internal curved handrail.¬† To comply with the 100mm gap rule, the customer opted for the L shaped tread option giving the appearance of an extra thick tread when ascending.¬†¬† This gives the treads a chunky look whilst keeping the open risers.¬† The white stringer certainly emphasises the floating feel to the staircase as it appears the treads are hanging from the wall.

We received these pictures a couple of days ago from a customer we supplied in Sevenoaks.¬† The Model is a WF system (with no internal stringer) and forms a quarter turn configuration.¬† Main features of the stair are the open floating feel created with the cantilevered and the swooping curved internal handrail at the turn.¬† This model was produced in solid Oak with brushed stainless spindles to the balustrade.
