Choosing New Stairs

Updated: Nov 1, 2023


Sometimes it is desirable to update an existing staircase as part of the building work, or perhaps your extension even requires a new staircase of it's own. Unfortunately shopping for new stairs isn't the easiest thing to do. There are no staircase shops in most high streets. So just by way of an aid here are a few staircase styles you could consider. These aren't the only options but they are the most popular.


If you have in mind a specialist staircase from a specific supplier please discuss this with us as early as possible as there are very often special requirements for how the site needs to be prepared for them. At the bottom of the page you will find an explanation of some of the terminology used to describe parts of staircases.
