Wow your guests from the moment they step foot in your home with a stunning, hand-crafted staircase.
Doug Collins from Hampshire Staircase Refurbishments explains how to plan and design your new stairs.
Q: Why should I consider refurbishing my staircase?
A: It can completely transform your home. A new staircase can uplift and modernise your décor instantly. From the moment you step foot in your door, your home will feel cosy and inviting. The staircase is usually the first thing people see when they enter, making a great first impression.
Q: How do you refurbish or improve an old staircase?
A: We take out the newel posts, replace the hand and base rails and can clad treads and risers to change the look of your stairs. We can even build LED lights into the steps – they’re visually stunning and a fantastic way to illuminate your hall at night.
We fit your stairs with mortice and tenon joints. Woodworkers from around the world have used this technique for hundreds of years because the joints are strong, stable, and long-lasting.
Q: Do you fit new staircases?
A: Yes. Most of the work we do is refurbishing staircases but we can also design a new staircase for your home. If you want to change the shape of your stairs we will need to design and fit a brand-new structure.
Q: What are the best materials to use on my stairs?
A: This entirely depends on your personal taste and the style of your home. You can choose from an array of materials – glass, wood, and iron.
Oak and glass staircases are often a popular choice. The light finish of the wood and open sleek design of the glass suits both modern and traditional properties. It makes the space appear larger and more inviting.
However, no two staircases are the same. We recommend booking a home visit. We will look at your home, gather the necessary measurements and spend time getting to know you. This allows us to craft an utterly unique staircase tailor-made for your home.
Q: What advice do you have for people currently planning a staircase refurbishment?
A: Look online for design ideas and gather images to share with us in your consultation. These will help us to understand what kind of staircase you would like. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions, we can offer advice and guidance to help you plan the project. We can also provide you with a free quote.
