Jim & Clare Cooksley, Cardiff

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.
Wayne and Helen, Warwick

Feature Steps for your staircase
Posted on 13th March 2019

Our bullnose and curtail steps are part of our bespoke stair parts range and are made to order to our customer’s specific measurements and style. This means that we can manufacture various sizes to suit most staircases so you can create a feature step which will wow your visitors.

You may be wondering what the difference between bullnose and curtail steps is but it really is quite simple. A curtail step has curved or squared edges with a much larger radius than bullnose steps, this step usually travels around the newel post to finish off at either side of your staircase and tends to house the post. Similarly, a bullnose step also has round or squared edges but finishes off at the front edge of the newel post and has a much smaller radius. These feature steps can also be incorporated to suit a staircase joining a wall to allow for a half bullnose or curtail step.

We feel that a feature step really adds to the character of a staircase and offers a charming invitation which will make your visitors want to explore more. These steps can be exposed to show off a natural timber finish or carpeted depending on personal preference.

White Primed Contemporary Solution Stair Parts
Posted on 11th March 2019
Thinking about how you can update your existing staircase? Wondering how you can add a modern twist to your run of the mill, white primed stair parts often supplied with new build properties? Then why not check out our solution range, now available in white primed! 
 
Our solution stair parts have been around for several years and are becoming more and more popular each day. This range was developed from our customer's feedback about how they liked the idea of using chrome or brushed nickel spindles, but didn't always like the commerical feel that the round styles sometimes offer. The solution range uses rectangular spindles which are nice and contemporary, creating sleek lines with square newel posts and matching caps. 
 
We have had so many requests for a white primed option for the solution range and this is now a stock item, meaning we can also turn around the white primed option in a week, rather than 10 - 14 days previously! 
 
 
I'm sure you'll agree this gives a beautiful finish with the white really contrasting with the metal work. The square lines, with the cleaness of the white parts makes a lovely modern design and we think this is a fantastic end result! 
 
If you're interested in updating your stairs, then why not give our friendly sales team a call on 01827 54988 for further information!

Make your staircase stand out from the rest
Posted on 6th March 2019

One thing that all of our customers want is a staircase which stands out from the rest. This can be quite a difficult task as having the balance between something that is a beautiful feature whilst not being over the top and making your stairs look out of place can be challenging. However, we have various ways of giving your staircase the wow factor without it being too much.

If you have the space adding a feature step can really add character to your staircase. This is especially significant as the beginning of your staircase is the main element which people see when visiting your home. We manufacture a variety of feature steps such as bullnose and curtail which are made to your specific measurements. If this isn’t an option for you due to limited space there is always the possibility of creating a feature newel post. There are numerous ways in which this can be done, for instance, why not make your first newel post bigger than the rest. Standard newels tend to be 90x90mm but why not make this 120x120mm and add a newel cap for a flawless finish.

Another possibility is to simply create a contrast of colours to create a statement. This is one of the easiest ways to make your staircase stand out as the use of two different colours draws in the eye, especially if one of the colours is white. As well as creating a contrast of colours if you choose to keep the natural colour of the timber of your choice this can make the grain more prominent and emphasise the natural beauty of the wood.

Here at Shaw Stairs we have so many design choices that we are sure we can find something that is perfect for you. If you would like to take a look at our online store and social media pages FacebookInstagram and Twitter you will find a variety of fabulous ideas.

Traditional and Contemporary Wall Handrail Kits
Posted on 5th March 2019
Wanting to update your existing stairs with minimal effort? Wondering how you can add a modern touch to your staircase without changing the balustrade? Perhaps your stairs is between 2 walls and you are looking for some additional support when climbing the stairs? Here at Shaw Stairs, we've got you covered with a wide range of contemporary and traditional wall handrail kits available. 
 
Often, wall handrails are used on staircases between walls in order to provide support as you climb the stairs, however, we are now seeing it become more common for these to be used with standard balustrades also. Not only are wall handrails practical, they can also help to add a fresh touch to the stairs themselves. We have a range of different options available, all of which can be tailored to meet your specific requirements. 
 
 
Our handrail kits are available in a range of different timbers such as pine, oak and hemlock to name a few. We also offer patrices with the kits in a matching wood, which are used as a base plate on the wall to support the brackets used to fit the handrail. We also have a variety of metal brackets and end caps that can be mixed and matched to support the rail. These are available in chrome, brushed nickel, brass and black.
