Staircase Stories: Mr & Mrs Thorpe, Lytham St. Annes

In the beautiful Lancashire town of Lytham St Annes, Mr & Mrs Thorpe knew it was time to time to breathe new life into his staircase. After meeting with Janet from Abbott-Wade’s design team, the decision was made to use oak stop chamfered spindles and newel posts with a stylish volute at the base of the handrail to create the focal point to transform their home.
“Our hallway, stairs and landing are now being decorated and carpet refitted and when these jobs are complete, Pat and I believe it will look stunning. Please pass on our thanks to your two employees who installed our new staircase, not only were they were highly skilled craftsmen they were also great ambassadors for your company. Thanks once more .”

Staircase Stories: Mr & Mrs Burman, Surrey

Burman - twisted oak spindles rake

 

Every home is unique and so is every staircase refurbishment – not just because they all vary in size, layout and pitch but also because our bespoke design service means that our customers get the the stairs they really want not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ off-the-peg installation. With this in mind, the Burman family of Surrey knew they’d made the right choice in choosing Abbott-Wade.

 


“We are delighted with our stairs. The fitters did a remarkable job, being both professional, innovative and pleasant to have in the house, always polite and neat and tidy. They have also produced a wonderful paneling on the side wall which they improvised and produced in situ. Talented young men. Thank You!”

Staircase Stories: James and Shelagh, Warwickshire

When Chartered Surveyor James – from Shakespeare’s own county and with the Bard’s grace and eloquence, had decided that his current staircase did nothing to compliment the original architecture of his home.  James and his wife Shelagh decided the time was right to breath new life into their stairs with a call to Abbott-Wade. Chunky, oversized oak newel posts replaced those of the original staircase with embedded glass securing the balustrade.

“After thirty years, the house at last feels ‘all of a piece’; the cornerstone of the aesthetic is now in place.  The historic and the contemporary are now in harmony.  A very satisfactory, and very satisfying, result.” – James & Shelagh
