Just a short note to let you know that we were really pleased with the individual items, that Shaw Stairs Ltd made for our new house. We have had numerous complimentary comments from visitors, and my clients regarding staircase etc. Your staffs were also courteous and professional, I will definitely be recommending Shaw Stairs again.

My husband and I would just like to say how delighted we are with our recent staircase renovation. From the initial enquiry right through to the completion of the project the service we received was first class. It was a real pleasure to do business with your company and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Please pass on our thanks once again to everyone involved.
Kind regards
John and Karen Hayes from Milton Keynes

Wow! What a transformation! Just wanted to say thank you for our staircase renovation. Excellent job, first class in every respect and superb craftsmanship. Your team were a pleasure to have in the house and nothing was too much trouble for them. Thank you,

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.

"I must let the world know what a fantastic job your guys did, with oak and glass, to remodel our staircase. It is stunning and the care taken with tiny details has been quite amazing. Moreover, it was a pleasure to have the pair of them in our home. Permanent smiles on their faces, obviously loving the job and proud of the result, Great stuff, Thank You All."

Feature Steps for your staircase

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.
