Whether in a terrace or a town house, a mansion or a maisonette – every staircase has it’s own unique story. Abbott-Wade have been collecting some of these stories on our travels around the country; finding out out the reasons for transformations, the history and inspiration of staircases in homes just like yours.
We’ve travelled the length and breadth of the country transforming homes with our staircase renovations and new flights. These staircase stories have been completed by real Abbott-Wade customers in their own homes. Browse through these pages written by Abbott-Wade customers, chances are there’s a staircase very similar to your own. Who knows, maybe the story of your own staircase will one day feature amongst these pages.
When a staircase renovation was needed for the Nichols family in Essex, Abbott-Wade’s Nationwide service came to rescue.
“I would definitely have no problems with recommending Abbott-Wade to anyone who wanted to refurbish their staircase.”
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!”
Many of our new customers come to us as a result of a recommendation from a previous customer. After seeing Abbott-Wade’s handiwork first hand in a friends house, Mr & Mrs Foster knew exactly who to call to transform their staircase.
“The quality of the materials are excellent as was the standard of the workmanship. The whole process from enquiry, to survey to installation was seamless, thank you for a tremendous job.”
A beautiful converted barn in Warwickshire with a spindled staircase and walkway was transformed in just one day by Abbott-Wade’s expert fitters.
“It looks amazing and has surpassed our expectations. We love it! The fitters were brilliant, tidy, friendly and worked so hard to complete the job in just one day. Brilliant!”
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
