Staircase with a built-in Wine Cellar!

Posted by alex on April 24th, 2018

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 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 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 staircase was finished off with the embedded glass balustrade system which forms the guarding of the stairs with the Oak ClearChoice handrail which was specified using the StairBox online glass builder tool.

The design was finished with the under stairs wine cellar which has surpassed expectations and has since generated a number of enquiries on social media with people asking if they can have it too.
