Is it time to renovate your existing staircase?

Is it time to renovate your existing staircase?

Is your staircase showing signs of wear and tear or losing its looks? Perhaps it’s time to get your staircase renovated, repaired or replaced, not just for increased safety but to add value and make a stylish statement in your home too.

At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we can refurbish, revamp or completely update the existing staircase in your home in Sussex, Surrey or London. You could go sleek and ultra-modern with a glass balustrade; opt for period-style elegance with traditional timber spindles; or combine metal and wood and make a striking designer statement.

How to choose your staircase design

Think about the style of your home and whether a modern or more classic style would suit it better. A staircase that matches the period of your property will enhance the character and value of your home. At Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery, we can replicate original period details on your renovated staircase.

Start looking for inspiration and examples of staircases that appeal to you on our gallery and browse sites like Pinterest and Houzz,

Consider safety too. Open stairs, an alternating tread or a floating staircase are appealing but will probably be out of the question if you have small children.

There are also options like adding storage to your staircase to utilise the space underneath with cupboards, as you will see from our extensive gallery of furniture on the website, we can create storage for your staircase that will tie in with the style and finish.

It’s worth knowing the different components of a staircase so you can describe what you want. The spindles are the vertical posts that hold up the handrail, which then attaches to the newel posts at the bottom and top of the stairs. Collectively all three are known as the balustrade. The tread is where you step and the riser is the vertical piece between each tread that's sometimes left open. For a useful glossary of staircase terms click here.
