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

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."

Which balustrade is the right balustrade?

Are you struggling to decide which spindles are best for you? Are you wondering what would suit your home the best? Or are you worried about what timber to choose? This handy guide might help you decide! 
The first thing really to consider, is am I looking to achieve a contemporary or traditional style? You might want to consider the existing décor in the home and surrounding the staircase and what styles may suit. The stairs are a focal point of the downstairs living space and so often, these are made as a feature within the home.
Another thing to consider is the existing timber used within the property. For example, wooden floors, furniture such as the dinning table, side boards, TV units etc. Would you want the timber of the stairs to match with existing furniture or perhaps you would like something completely different to create a contrast? We offer a wide range of different timbers, a few examples of which can be seen below;
Another thing to consider is the space the stairs themselves are going into. Is the area light enough or are you looking to open up the space and allow more light to pass through? If so, then our glass balustrade options are great for this purpose. Perhaps you’re happy with the amount of light currently surrounding the stairway. If so, you might want to opt for a more traditional design using timber spindles. These can still be brought into the modern, 21st century by combining traditional timbers with modern designs, or even using white primed materials.
We also offer metal spindles, available in chrome or brushed nickel finishes with matching accessories. This is a nice middle ground for customer’s looking for something a bit more contemporary but don’t wish to use glass. These spindles have chamfered edges which reflects light so are a great option for those looking for a bit of everything.
