Why a new staircase?
When we moved to our home forty five years ago, my husband and I never liked the existing staircase, we felt that it was very dated. We had a young family at the time so I could never afford to have it replaced. So we kept painting it and saying ‘one day we will have a new staircase installed’.
I saw the Abbott-Wade brochure and thought the transformations in it were stunning. I had a demonstration of all the various staircase designs and then had the measurements taken. The cost was about what I had envisaged.
Decision making process:
The fact that Abbott-Wade was a family-run company appealed to me and the staff were friendly. One company turned out to be very expensive.
I chose light oak throughout as my flooring is light oak parquet herring bone design. I was glad I did as the result is stunning. Both friends and neighbours have all commented on how beautiful it looks.
