A stunning staircase that’s beautifully designed can make the focal point of your home, whether you’re building from scratch or renovating.
Here at Abbott-Wade, our staircase specialists have renovated and replaced many staircases in Scotland – accommodating the needs of clients in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Perth, Ayr, Crieff and beyond.
Wondering what we can do to transform your tired and outdated staircase?
Read on to find out!
If your stairs are structurally sound, and you’re happy with their direction and turns – you simply want to give them a fresh new look – renovating will save you the hassle and expense of a replacement.
But what to renovate for the most impactful change?
· Re-clad worn treads and risers
Have your stairs started to show signs of wear and tear?
With so many people using them to transfer between the rooms and the upper and lower floors, it’s inevitable.
But the good news is that Abbott-Wade can clad over your existing treads and risers to hide these signs of degradation – giving your stairs a new look for a fraction of the price of a replacement.
We use non-slip oak to re-clad such stair parts to ensure the safety of your household, preventing little ones, elderly family members, and pets from injuring themselves.
· Clad over structural parts
If you’ve fallen out of love with your staircase, you might be considering a replacement.
However, the team at Abbott-Wade have been cladding over the sides of staircases in Glasgow and beyond for decades – concealing the gap under the stairs and creating the impression of a brand-new, full-flight.
One of the biggest advantages of renovating your stairs in this way is that we can save you time, effort, and money.
· Swap loose or wobbly spindles for new ones
Although there are lots of ways our staircase specialists can update your tired balustrade, replacing loose or wobbly spindles is one of the quickest, easiest, and most affordable options – guaranteed to give your stairs a new lease of life.
Depending on your desired look, you can select spindles in the same material and style as your existing ones or you can opt for something completely different.
Wooden spindles are a classic choice – great for painting, varnishing, and staining. Metal spindles, on the other hand, will give your home a modern look – consider black for an ultra-sleek and contemporary look and feel.
· Replace spindles with glass panels
If you want to switch up the appearance of your hallway and stairs, Abbott-Wade can install glass panels in place of wooden or metallic spindles.
These panels are made from toughened glass and can be easily clamped to the handrail, offering a sophisticated alternative to conventional spindles. For an unobstructed view, panels can be installed without a rail – providing a barely-there effect.
Switching spindles with glass is also an excellent way to increase the flow of natural light into your stairway, creating the illusion of more space. And it won’t cost you anywhere near as much as a staircase replacement.
If your staircase is damaged beyond repair or you’d like to design a brand-new one that fits your home, lifestyle, budget, and style needs perfectly, the Abbott-Wade experts can help.
· Design a bespoke staircase
Our staircase specialists are well aware that no two homes are the same in size, layout, or décor, and customers’ needs and preferences can vary when it comes to staircases in Edinburgh, for example.
This is why we provide a bespoke service for clients throughout Scotland – working closely with them to create their dream staircase.
To get the ball rolling, we advise booking a consultation to discuss your staircase ideas in full with our experts. We’ll also be able to talk you through the available options and provide expert advice, should you need it, before putting together a design.
If you’re happy with the design, let us know and we’ll get started on building your bespoke staircase with our CNC technology at our workshop – ready to install in your home.
