A modern staircase can transform an entrance hall creating a stunning centre piece. Throughout history, grand staircases have been used to make a striking statement in buildings around the globe. Whilst they tended to feature solely in large public buildings or stately homes, the homebuilding and improvement revolution sweeping the UK has created a demand for feature staircases in the domestic market. Many of these more modern staircases are designed to reflect modern trends with open designs and transparent elements to allow the passage of light. For so long the UK has been stuck in the dark ages with cheap softwood stairs with closed risers and smothered with carpeted. Now is to time to revolutionise the standard offering and opt of a staircase which is in keeping with the style and elegance of rest of the property.
We offer a range of modern staircases that will enhance your home. These are supplied in a variety of materials and unique structures all aimed to give your hallway a focal point that allows the passage of light.
Choosing your Modern Staircase
When choosing a new staircase for your property you need to consider a number of elements. Firstly, the available space, the height and the layout (shape) of the stair and secondly the materials and appearance.
If a new build, an architect will have already ensured the opening in the floor is large enough for the staircase and the location of any walls will dictate whether the flight forms a straight flight, quarter turn half turn. The height of the staircase will determine the number of steps and risers required. If replacing a staircase a new staircase will generally follow the same shape of the previous layout. If you need advise with the layout and the space a staircase requires – please get in touch and we can let you know the stairwell size required.
We have two different designs of modern stair which all differ in the way they are supported. The Model 500 system has slim-line steel stringers to either side and the WF is constructed with a single wall stringer and floating treads creating a open feel.
Click on the links below to see more information on the model and a list of treads and balustrade options. Both options we have an extensive gallery and case study portfolio section to inspire you and to help you make the right choice.
All we need to price the stairs are the shape and the height. there is a handy contact form at the bottom of each page which you can fill in for a quotation.
