Here at Abbott-Wade, we understand that every homeowner has a vision of what their ideal staircase would look like. However, due to budget, time constraints or the opinion of others in your household, these plans may never come to fruition. But why should this be the case? If you have a clear idea in mind or want to come up with a physical picture of all of your preferences, then you’ve come to the right place at Abbott-Wade.
We’ve been able to provide bespoke staircases to customers for over 20 years now, and show no signs of slowing down! So whatever idea you have in mind, no matter if it’s ‘easy’ or extravagant, we have you covered. Let your mind explore the art of the staircase, providing your indoor space with the lease of life it may be crying out for.
Whether you’re set on what you want or open to ideas, here are some things to think about when planning your own bespoke staircase design.
Should you go modern or traditional?
Depending on your personal preference and taste, the chances are, you will be leaning towards a modern staircase design or one that is traditional in its look. If you’re still unsure, then why not take a look at all that Abbott-Wade has to offer for some inspiration? As stated at the start of the piece, every concept of your ideal staircase is different. So use our past projects as something to copy or steal aspects from, as our skilled and experienced team are capable of completing even the most complex of developments.
Both approaches are incredibly stunning but have subtle differences that make them appeal to different tastes. A modern staircase utilises the minimalist approach in which the current trends favour. With clean, sharp lines and a simple design, you may choose a modern staircase to complete your up to date interior décor.
Of course, you may also prefer the glamour and prestige of a traditional staircase, something we also offer in abundance. These kinds of staircases utilise natural and stained timbers in order to have the desired effect, with a classic looking staircase hitting all the right notes with those that want to promote the beauty of the past in their home of today.
What material do you prefer?
Depending on your preference between the modern and traditional, this may also sway your opinion towards which is your favoured material. There are three main players to choose from, all of which are supplied here at Abbott-Wade. We are able to offer steel and glass staircases for the more contemporary folk, who would like to make the most of these creative options.
They are able to brighten up your staircase immediately, whilst incorporating a glass balustrade will encourage a healthy amount of natural light to flow through your home.
Traditional timber is also a popular option, as it can open up many decorative opportunities as to how you want your staircase to look. The sheer amount of timbers around allows you to claim full control over the appearance of your new staircase. If you’re looking for a glamorous option that has multiple facets to its look, timber may be the way to go.
Should it be a showstopper?
Of course, in any house that has more than one floor, a staircase is a crucial component. But how much emphasis would you like to place on your bespoke staircase? This decision should be incorporated into your staircase ideas, thinking about how it works with the rest of your home.
If you would like your staircase to be an imposing element of your property and stand out from the surrounding décor, then you could possibly look to pick a colour that contrasts from the surrounding walls or other pieces of furniture.
Or, if you want your staircase to fit seamlessly with the rest of your home, you could opt for colours that complement your existing colour scheme well, and uses simple decorative elements to add to the overall appeal of your design.
