    A Complete New Build

    Billie-Jean and Mark Holden had originally planned to stay in their four-bedroom ‘forever’ home in Cheshire. But, having purchased the bungalow that was up for sale next door, and with the intention of getting planning permission to sell on, they soon had more ambitious plans to build their own oak framed home on the land to become mortgage free.

    After visiting a traditionally styled cottage built by Welsh Oak Frame, they were set on building a characterful oak f...

    The Renovation Project

    This 1930’s semi-detached property was given a complete overhaul by homeowner Mr Proctor. He describes how he went about transforming the staircase as part of his renovation project:

    “The house was old and dated, and in a mess. When thinking of ways to improve the hallway, stairs and landing, a new glass balustrade on the staircase was the first thing that came to mind. Having previously worked in the staircase industry, I already had some knowledge about what could be achieved here with a staircase renovation.” (Mr Proctor)

Our Reviews

  • Alan Hague Alan Hague – 3 weeks ago

    Nearly two years ago we ordered a bespoke staircase to fit in our bedroom. To get all the glass cut angles correct, maintaining the stairs flat due to the non standard rake and getting it all to fit perfectly clearly demonstrates good investment in personnel and equipment. Quick helpful service and a great product all at a very good price.

5 Steps to Renovating Your Staircase

Unsure where to start with renovating your staircase? Read on.

Over the years, we’ve seen many amazing transformations achieved by customers who’ve used our stair parts to renovate their existing staircases. For a staircase that is structurally sound, renovation can give the appearance of a brand new flight but with minimal cost and time.

If you’re looking to give your stairs more attention than a coat of paint, read our 5-step guide to renovating – you can choose just one of these steps or all of them.


Add a new balustrade to your stairs and landing

The biggest change to a staircase often comes from updating the balustrade – opting for modern glass panels or a different spindle profile can completely transform your stairs and the space they’re in. Glass panels are a great way to brighten up a space, allowing light to pass through.

Whilst oak parts are normally oiled to showcase their natural beauty, with pine spindles and handrail/baserail, you also have the option to paint them in a colour of your choice – something that is becoming increasingly popular with StairBox customers, as we discussed here.

Our NEW online balustrade designer makes designing and ordering a new balustrade a breeze. Simply input a few dimensions (the online designer has a Measuring Guide and built-in angle finder to help with this), make your style choices, and the Balustrade Builder will create an instant quote for everything you need!

Replace or clad your newel posts

Your newel posts form part of your balustrade, so replacing or cladding these can take your renovation to the next level and achieve a great final result. Our Specialist oak newel cladding kits can be purchased from just £92.50.

Carpet or clad treads and risers

If your treads and risers are beyond being revived with a coat of oil or paint, you could carpet them or clad them with solid oak. Carpet creates a softer feel underfoot and can minimise noise, whereas oak is easier to clean and can create an impressive feature staircase. Oak tread and riser cladding kits can be purchased from our online shop from just £27.95.

Paint or clad stair strings

Try painting your strings for a crisp new look – strings painted in dark colours have become a customer favourite of late – or clad them with our Oak Apron Lining and String Veneer. This often overlooked detail can really elevate your staircase.

Add a wall rail

And finally, to complete your newly updated staircase, why not add a wall rail? Not only a design feature, it also provides extra safety when ascending and descending the stairs.
