The beauty of bespoke staircases

A staircase needn’t be purely functional. Many homeowners are transforming their existing staircase in their home into a beautiful architectural feature that will wow their guests.

A bespoke refurbished staircase can transform even a modest-sized hallway into an inviting space.

Why renovate your existing staircase?
The staircase is used a great deal in most homes and is often the first thing you see as you walk through the door. So, investing in a staircase renovation can improve first impressions, as well as add value to your home. By using the highest standard of construction and materials, the installation will feel as good as it looks, last a lifetime and be a worthwhile, long-term investment.

A custom-made natural wood refurbished staircase
Wood is popular for a reason; it’s strong, easy to maintain, versatile and suits traditional and contemporary settings. A natural hardwood refurbished staircase, especially in oak, is synonymous with luxury and timeless quality.

An elegant wooden staircase adds natural warmth and grandeur to a hallway and can be handcrafted to perfectly match the features of any period property. While wood is the medium for most traditional staircases, wood can also be used to sleek, modern and innovative designs.

Luxury glass and wood staircases
If you want to create a feeling of light and spaciousness, think about replacing old timber spindles and newels with glass to your existing staircase. A combination of beautiful glass and natural wood is the perfect way to transform a dark staircase and is ideal if you want a minimalistic, clean-lined, modern look.

Acorn Bespoke Carpentry and Joinery designed and installed this balustrade which is precision-made from the highest quality toughened safety glass.

Colour and finish for your staircase
Your newly renovated staircase can be an opportunity to inject some colour and personality into your home décor. Classic white, stylish grey or another on-trend shade; with contrasting beautiful oak handrails, posts or caps can look stunning. Painting all or part of your refurbished staircase gives you plenty of flexibility too as you can always update and change the colour at any time.

Bespoke metal and wood staircases
Using wood and metal in a staircase renovation can work well in both traditional and modern properties, with steel or wrought iron spindles creating a dramatic effect. Metal can also add decorative touches to a staircase more effectively than any other material, especially if you’re going for a more individual look.
