Here at Abbott-Wade, it is safe to say that we are staircase enthusiasts, after all we are the experts! With this in mind, we are regularly paying close attention to the kind of designs our customers are asking us to install, and where they get their inspiration from. As modern trends are always changing, it is important to stress that trying to keep up with the very latest design, you might be looking at an expensive process. But, if you are looking for a new staircase for a new decade, checking out these trends put together by the team of the North West’s number one staircase team…

Spiral staircase

One of the most eye catching designs around, a spiral staircase is the staple of a modern home. No, we’re not talking about the ones that you see in castles, we’re thinking of an open tread spiral staircase with glass balustrades that would combine beautifully with an oak wood floor. Any kind of spiral staircase has the advantage of adding a vintage look to a home, or contemporary when done correctly, giving it a versatility which is not always accomplished by other kinds of staircases.

Light staircases

More and more in modern households, light is right if you’re looking to keep on trend! And we’re not talking about the odd combinations of green, yellow and pink that were a fixture in the 1960’s, but light shades of grey and white are now becoming the primary colour schemes of the modern house. With this, steel staircases are becoming more and more popular due to their tough make up and lighter colour. We have also saw many painted staircases in lighter colours this year, as houses becoming brighter and more welcoming to guests.

Floating staircase

Floating staircases may be something that you have saw on Grand Designs and pondered what they would look like in your own home. Well, now you can implement one of these in your house and give yourself a staircase that is bang in trend in 2020! Leave any visitors in awe as the seemingly levitating treads can give a sense of efficiency of space whilst giving you a unique and intriguing design that will last for years to come.
