Most of us make New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier, exercise more, and budget better, but we’ve found that many homeowners are using their time wisely to make improvements to their homes, too – particularly their staircases in Scotland.
If your stairs have seen better days, or you’ve been meaning to replace them for several months – but simply didn’t have enough hours in the day before the Christmas chaos kicked in – the team at Abbott-Wade has got you covered.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can transform your home and stairs in the new year.
New year, new staircase?
First impressions count and, since it’s the first thing you’ll notice when you step over the threshold, your staircase needs to be looking its best.
If your current flight of stairs is damaged beyond repair or you’re sick and tired of it creaking and squeaking, it might be time to replace it.
As staircase specialists, Abbott-Wade can help you design a staircase that reflects your style and personality – as well as your space and budget – perfectly.
For example, we can create a brand-new wooden staircase from scratch – giving your home a warm, cosy feel. Or we can replace your outdated structure with a contemporary glass staircase that allows natural light to flood into your hall, creating the impression of more space.
If you’re torn between a wooden flight of stairs and contemporary glass panels, there’s no need to compromise. Our expert joiners can design, manufacture, and install a staircase that is 100% bespoke – just let us know what you have in mind and we’ll get started!
Keep your costs low with a staircase renovation project
Is your staircase structurally sound – you’ve just fallen out of love with the way it looks, or it no longer suits your interior décor?
Over the years, Abbott-Wade has helped many clients renovate their staircases in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and various other areas throughout Scotland and the UK. We’d love to do the same for you!
Renovating your existing flight of stairs by swapping old staircase parts for new ones can give it a whole new look for a fraction of the price of a replacement. Ideal if you’ve spent a little more than you planned during the festive season.
Though there are several things our specialists can do to transform the look, feel, and safety of your stairs, some of our favourite staircase renovation ideas include:
- Replacing old spindles with new ones or, better yet, stylish toughened glass panels.
- Installing a new handrail on one or both sides of the stairs.
- Cladding over the structural sides to create the impression of a brand-new staircase.
- Recladding worn treads and risers with non-slip oak.
