Fully Refurbished Staircase with a Unique Built-in Wine Cellar

Renovation Solutions

One of the latest staircase transformations using StairBox stair parts includes a newly refurbished staircase complete with an under stairs wine cellar.

A businessman in Caerphilly, South Wales was on the hunt for someone who could design his very own under stairs storage wine cellar and refurbish his existing staircase.

Sean Matthews of SM Carpentry took the original concept, the exact measurements and specifications, and developed a unique solution using StairBox’s online staircase designer tool.

The previously plain-looking staircase was then completely transformed – using oak and glass to create a sleek, modern look.


Creating a Unique Finish

The staircase was completely refurbished using StairBox stair parts, which included wrapping the existing posts in the StairBox Newel Cladding Kit. This updated the existing newel posts and gave the appearance of a solid oak post with a newel cap.

The stringer has been clad in the Oak Faced Apron Lining to hide the existing panel and now looks like a brand new solid oak stringer.

The balustrade was also given a new look with the Embedded Glass Balustrade System, which forms the guarding of the stairs with the Oak ClearChoice Handrail. This particular balustrade was specified using the StairBox online glass builder tool.

The refurbishment was completed with a custom built under stairs wine cellar, which has surpassed expectations. The project has since generated a number of enquiries for SM Carpentry on social media, with customers requesting a similar installation.
