We were delighted to be in the Liverpool Daily Post newspaper recently, featured as "Small Business of the Week" in the September 12th edition. If you didn't see the paper, you can find the piece online by following this link.

One of the things the article picks up on is our use of new digital channels and social media to tell people who we are and what we can do. So you can now find us on Facebook, Twitter and also on Google + and we look forward to connecting with you on those websites.

We are regularly approached by clients who are in the first stages of planning or construction of their own houses to manufacture many of the items they wish to incorporate into their homes.

Quite often a client will approach us for a specific product then decide to employ our services for the majority of their joinery works which was the case with Mr & Mrs Ikin of Culcheth.

Staircase Design

Now that a staircase is seen as a main feature in a property there is a lot more emphasis on the overall design. In anything other than the absolute grandest of properties the stairs had generally been seen as solely a means of access between floors. Nowadays this is certainly not the case, and homeowners, property developers, architects and designers are all heavily focused on ensuring that the staircase they install is an integral part of the overall design concept.

There is a wide variety of materials from which a staircase can be constructed. Although timber has historically been the most common material, stone, glass and metal are now often used either as the primary material, or as part of a combination to attain the desired effect. These materials can all be incorporated in innumerable methods and areas within the stair construction, and each will deliver a different concept.

Stairs

The options for modernising your stairs are more wide and varied than you may realise. Fortunately there are a number of companies possessing the skills to turn your existing staircase into a feature of your home. Coincidentally, the popularity of modern contemporary living has assisted the development of many new designs, meaning any home with a staircase can benefit from a design that adds character and value.

If removing your existing staircase is a daunting prospect, or outside of your available budget, its best to focus on what can be done to change the appearance of what you already have. Almost any staircase can be remodelled with a little creativity, vision and the right professionals to carry out the work. Initial makeovers of existing stairs were, and still are undertaken by cutting and drilling the newel posts, then inserting turned newels, new spindles and handrails. Although, there is much more that you can do besides. Your existing stairs can be totally covered so that they look brand new, including your steps and strings (side of stairs). Glass, chrome, stainless steel, and even stone can be incorporated for homeowners that want a modern or contemporary staircase that flows with their overall design concept. The key is to make sure you employ the right people with relevant experience to carry out such an overhaul. There are plenty of highly skilled people who can do this sort of work, but ensure you ask to see examples of their previous workmanship before making a decision.
