  • Case Study: Designing a Staircase with Character

    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)

    Just ordered my second staircase from Stairbox and couldn’t be happier. Their online design tool is so simple to use. My most recent staircase is excellent quality and so straight forward to install. It arrived within two weeks and was excellent value for money. Great service from a great company.

A new trend in staircase style

A new trend in staircase style

Whilst oak and glass remain a firm favourite, we’ve recently noticed the emergence of a new trend in staircase style.

More and more customers are choosing to paint their entire staircase – treads, balustrade, newel posts and stringers – one colour. 

Painting your staircase in a block colour can create various visual effects – helping the staircase blend in to the space, or contrasting it against the rest of the room as a key focal point.

And as well as being a style statement, a painted finish can also keep costs down – softwood and MDF staircases are perfect for painting and are a cheaper option to hardwoods, like oak.

Let’s take a look at some of the colour choices our customers have made…

Inspired Interiors Edinburgh used their staircase to create a mezzanine floor and maximise the bedroom’s high ceiling. The designer didn’t want the new stairs to impose on the room too much; painting them the same colour as the wall helps the new flight blend into the background, whilst also looking elegant and seamless.


A painted staircase is an opportunity to showcase your personality and design taste through colour. Bright, fun, sophisticated or dramatic – it sets the tone for the rest of your interior style. @houselust’s choice of a beautiful pink paint is on-trend but also has an element of playfulness. Using the same colour on the doors creates a cohesive scheme throughout the hall.


In this charming space, painting the staircase the same colour as the wall panelling makes them work together as one, creating a real statement piece. The oak handrail and newel caps lift the design, giving the staircase a premium, quality finish, whilst also adding coherence with the flooring style.

Choosing a bold, dark paint colour like black or charcoal grey can truly elevate a space. Paired with dark walls it can create drama, or contrast with white walls to really show off the form and lines of the staircase.


And if you want to go for a single paint colour across your entire staircase, but still want a bit of comfort under foot, a stair runner can be the solution. This traditional cut string staircase looks timeless in classic white; the stair runner leads you up the flight without compromising the overall effect.

The question is, what colour would you paint yours?!
