What a great company, from the first meeting with Chris (designer) to plan our new stairs, through to the survey with Chris, to the fitting carried out by Brian and Jowel (whose workmanship is exemplary). All concerned made this a pleasant experience. We are absolutely delighted with the end product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shaw Stairs to anyone.

Turning a house into your forever home
Posted on 17th May 2017

Here are our top tips for turning a house into your forever home. 

It is a stressful time in anyone's life when you are either moving or building a new house. It can be a lengthy process of waiting for solicitors, estate agents, architects and builders to all pull together and complete, while the whole time you feel like you are at a loss. The excitment of getting the keys to your new house is always a great day, but does anyone else feel deflated when you step inside and see an empty shell? It feels cold and uninviting and resembles absolutely nothing like the day you went round to visit? 

The hard reality is that a house is never really a home until you make it! Furniture, photographs and ornaments can help to fill out the space and make the place feel more homely. 

In the majority of houses, one of the first things you see when you open the front door is the staircase. We know, as I'm sure you do, with a lot of new build properties, they don't seem to pay too much attention to the stairs and you can often end up with something fairly basic and boring. Maybe this is just what you want and that's ok! But maybe, you want something more and that's where we can help. 

We offer a extensive range of product and services from full staircase replacements, to simple refurbishment packs. These can be used to breath new life into a somewhat boring or tired looking staircase. Imagine an old country house, you move in and the stairs is a dark wood colour and it makes the whole place feel a bit dull and miserable. You decide to update the staircase to something open plan, with perhaps American white oak balustrade and glass infill. The next day you open that front door and instead you are greeted by something open, fresh and modern looking which I can guarantee will take your breath away day by day. 

So, if this sounds like the kind of thing you are looking for - you know what to do! Get in touch with us on 01827 54988, check out or website and social media pages for ideas and we will be more than happy to make your dream a reality! 

Here are some examples of some recent rennovations and brand new staircase projects we have completed - which is your favourite?

Factory Life
Posted on 3rd November 2016

​The Shaw Stairs Factory

There is always so much going on at the Shaw Stairs factory and the whole team plays their own important part. Firstly, it all starts with our brilliant sales team who are responsible for answering any customer queries, providing quotations and booking on orders. These orders can range from a couple of spindles or newel caps to a whole new staircase with balustrade. Once these orders have been booked on they are then passed onto our carpenters working on the factory floor; this is where the real magic happens.

Our highly skilled team of joiners are able to turn raw timber into a beautiful centre piece for your home. We build staircases which range in size and scale, from new builds with grand entrance halls to quaint house renovations. The factory is constantly alive with movement as our team run the raw materials through the machines and then glue and nail the staircases together. Once this has all been done our delivery driver then picks up the stairs and takes them to site.

It's always great to see the finished product so we love it when our customers send us photographs of the installed piece. Take a look at the one below; this gorgeous staircase is made from hemlock and wrought iron. The contrasting materials really make this staircase stand out from the rest.

If you would like a quotation or have any questions or queries, please contact our team.

How Stair Balustrade Can Improve Your Home
Posted on 22nd September 2016

Did you know that the stair and landing areas is one of the most overlooked spaces of every home?

Your stair balustrade may be the key to improving the way your home looks, and is an easy way to give a more elegant and luxurious feel. The hardest part of refurbishing your stairs is choosing a design which you feel will be fitting to your personal style and taste. Once you have made this decision the Shaw Stairs sales team are happy to help plan and quote everything which you will need.

Stairs are made up of various parts, such as, spindles, handrails, base rails, newel posts etc. This is where the choice of what to replace comes in. For example, if your newel posts are in good condition and you are happy with the design you may feel that the rails and spindles are the only parts which need replacing and vice versa. This is perfectly normal and updating just one area of your balustrade can still make all the difference.

​Spindles 

The spindles are a key element to any design, these come in all different shapes and sizes as well as various materials. Some prefer a more traditional look with timber spindles like pine, oak or hemlock where others feel a more contemporary material suits them, such as chrome or brushed nickel. Iron spindles are also an option which a lot of customers like, but ultimately the choice is yours.

​Newel Posts

​These are the posts which you will find at the beginning and end of your staircase and landing. There is a wide selection of newels to choose from as well as newel bases, newels with spigots and half newels. The decision of which you require will depend on what you are replacing and the overall look you desire. Some choose to have square newel bases with a turned newel, while others want a simple look such as square or stop chamfered posts. Newel posts can also have caps which sit on top of the post, this is to give a completed look to your staircase but is not a necessity.
 

​Hand and Base Rails

The handrail is the part of your balustrade which sits on top of your spindles, which you hold onto when you are going up or down the stairs. Handrails are usually made from wood and are often stained or glossed to protect them and keep them looking fresh. The base rail is the opposite end of the spindles and is used to help keep spindles in place.

Your stair balustrade is definitely the area which you are most drawn to when you enter your home. If this area is designed well, it can create a lasting impression on yourself and visitors. This is also one of the easiest and most satisfying ways of improving your home.

Summertime Project
Posted on 27th June 2016

Summer is here - Apparently!

 

If you're feeling ​down about the lack of sunshine at the moment, why not find yourself a project to do indoors to distract yourself from all the miserable weather?

 

This staircase with Oak handrail and white primed spindles is enough to brighten any home and stop you from feeling gloomy.

These ID Flo white primed stair spindles give a warmer, contemporary feel with their elegant and natural shape. They can also be fitted in various ways to create different waves on the staircase.

 

 

 

 

 

Another ​bright idea to lighten hallway and landing areas are glass balustrades. Here is an example of one from our Reflections range; the glass fits perfectly allowing light to flow around the room.

Similar to the Reflections range we also offer IMMIX; this is a new contemporary stair parts range from Richard Burbidge. Immix is available in a White Oak and is designed to be easy to fit, very convenient if you're new to DIY. The Immix look is completed by glass panels and Gun Metal finish connectors and fittings which complement each other perfectly.

If you would like any advice or help with your dream staircase and stair parts, please contact us now. Our dedicated and friendly team are always happy to help.

Open Riser Staircases

 
​Floating and open staircases are becoming even more popular as they create an effortless modern look as well as allowing a vast amount of light through; brightening any hallway!
 
 
 
 
 
  • The minamilistic look creats the illusion that your stairs are floating
 
  • The glass gives the impression that there is no balustrade at all and just a floating handrail
 
 
 

 

 

 

Here at Shaw Stairs we design and build the highest quality staircases. We use advanced techniques and a skilled team of joiners so we are able to create a stunning and unique feature for your home. We offer designs from plans, emails or photographs so why not send yours over now and see how Shaw Stairs can complete your home.

If you would like to add something a little different to your open plan stair case why not take a look at our chrome riser bars? This brings together wood and metal beautifully, creating a staircase that is fighting for your attention in all areas of the design.​

Here is an example of our Oak open plan staircase with chrome bars. As you can see the two materials compliment each other in a graceful manor whilst also complying to UK Building Regulations (total gap must not be able to pass a 100mm sphere through opening).
