Full Colour Staircases!

Wow wow wow!!!  –  Spiral Staircases and Helical Staircases create wonderful features in the right setting and these examples show that the addition of colour can transform a structure into a feature.

None of these are actually stairs we have supplied but we are always on the look out for interesting staircase designs that take your breath away and these are magnificent examples.

Modern Staircase – Before and After

A Modern Staircase was installed last week in Farnborough, Hampshire.

As part of a refurbishment, our client needed their current carpeted quarter turn staircase replaced with a stunning  modern staircase, offering light and space.

Instead of maintaining the existing square platform at the turn we introduced winding treads which saved a little space, created an nice angle to the stringers and actually increased the depth of the individual treads – making the flight easier to ascend.

The model 500 modern staircase was selected with steel laser cut stringer and solid oak treads.  The oak treads had an integrated downstand at the front to ensure it met building regulations.  Frameless glass balustrade was supplied down the internal side and this was topped with an oak handrail.

The final floor is to be laid in a couple of weeks and we will be back to take some finished pictures then.

In the meantime if you are looking for a similar modern staircase – please call us on 01794 522444 or email info@completestairsystems.co.uk.

Staircase London – Install Pics

Staircase London.

A few ‘just installed’ pictures of a project of 4 x model 500 bespoke staircases in central London.  I took these on a visit earlier this week after a pig of a drive!

All 4 flights were supplied for the one dwelling in Belgravia, and a stunning dwelling it is too!  We had three 3 quarter turn staircases directly one above another connecting ground to first to second floors.  The forth flight was a half turn connecting the ground and first floors towards the front of property.  Frameless glass balustrade was supplied and fitted to all staircases and across the landing levels. Currently protected whilst the build completes are the 100mm solid Oak treads – with a white wax finish.  I cant wait to see the finished pictures of  ‘staircase london’ – stay posted.



Mountain Spiral Staircase 4

One large Spiral Staircase.

Here at Complete Stair Systems we have a real passion for all things stair related.  

From outrageous designs to quirky sculptures, in our eyes each bespoke stair is a piece of art – whether we have produced it or not.

As a weekly feature we are going to prepare and publish a number of unusual and interesting staircase photos from around the world –  – starting with this beauty in China.  

Mountain Spiral Staircase 3

In an attempt to boost tourist numbers in Taihang, officials decided to add a 300ft large spiral staircase to the side of a mountain for direct access to the summit and to the stunning views upon assent.  Certainly not for the faint hearted ……….either to design the thing or to use it.  I gather there is a good few feet lateral movement when the wind blows strong – which is fairly frequent at this altitude!!

Apparently visitors are requested to sign a form before assent confirming they have no heart or lung health issues – and no-one over 60 is permitted.

A magnificent piece of engineering – I would love to have seen the fitting sequence.  Goodness – have a look at that centre column!

Grand Designs Day 1

Grand Designs Review

A short Grand Designs Review.  So there we are Grand Designs Live in Birmingham is all over for another year……..well it finished a week ago yesterday but we have been a litle snowed under.

Always tricky to judge how a show went early on but we parted with over 4000 brochures, 1000 rulers (the bored children gobbled them up) and countless USB sticks and business card.  We spoke to a lot of people and gathered enough info for over 120 quotations – so no time off for us in the near future……..

Regrouping now back at HQ with everyone focusing on dealing with enquiries that have filtered in while we were away and of course progressing the currrent orders.

Grand Designs Day 1

Friday over and two days to go at the Grand Designs show.  Always a shock to have to stand all day as opposed to sitting on a comfy chair!

AM was a little crazy with a consistent stream of people flowing trhough the hall. The first few hours flew past as we spoke to 50-60 budding developers.

When the day was out we had shifted over half our stock of brochure which might mean a quick return trip back to Romsey on Saturday to pick up some more – I sure hope not.

All good fun though – keep posted and wish us luck tommorow….

Grand Design Show – Build Up

Up bright a breazy ahead of the first day of the show today.

We gave ourselves 3 hours to errect the stand yesterday but as we had to parl a good MILE from the stand it took us 2 hours just to get the kit to the stand!  At 8pm yesterday we were done just when they were asking everyone to leave – Phew.  Tired and hungry we retired to the hotel for a meal and some shut eye.  What will today bring…………
