14Whether it’s in your hallway or forms part of your living room, your staircase is usually the first thing people see when they enter your home. Yet, despite this it is often the only part of your home that fails to get that much needed makeover.

As the heart of your home your staircase has the potential to totally transform your living space and create a real ‘wow’ factor. At the cutting edge of style, a glass staircase can make a small, dark hallway appear bigger and brighter whilst a traditional oak balustrade and spindles can bring a period property to life.

It’s well documented in the media that the property market is the flattest it’s been since the 1970’s. This adds even more weight to the well used phrase ‘Improve not Move’, and what better place to start than the focal point of your home. As we simply renovate your existing staircase there is minimal upheaval and it won’t break the bank.

Anyway, we just wanted to give you a bit of food for thought, as here at Abbott-Wade experience has taught us that first impressions really do last!
