Stairs have benefits far beyond simple getting from one level of the house to another – and we’re not talking about the cardio-vascular health benefits of climbing them! They’re a focal point that can really make a house into a home, helping create the sense of flow that so many people say is essential to their project.

First steps

A statement staircase can really help to bring your home together. Consider the timber finish you’d like – David Smith St. Ives offers black walnut, ash and oak, for example – and the type of design too. Popular options include the wonderful sweep of a curved staircase, or the modern touch of a floating finish. Or go traditional, open rise or cut-string – the choice is yours.

Opt for bold design or blend in with the rest of your home by going for glass or metal balustrades – whatever you choose, you’ll get exceptional customer service tailored to your needs and a high quality finish. Manufactured with the very latest machining technology, these staircases are built to last.
