This staircase highlights how oak balustrade can perfectly set off a hallway, adding a bit of texture to the wash of white. On top of this softwood staircase, the customer has opted for Oak newel posts, spindles, handrail & newel caps. This gives the hallway a bit of well needed character, and breaks up the existing colour scheme.
Traditional spindles, with intricate turns and flutes, have furnished some of the most exquisite homes over the years and have become a go to for houses up and down the country. However as styles change, people are favouring minimal interior design which finds itself at odds with the traditional turned spindle. Therefor this new style of spindle, with a singe twist, seeks to bridge the gap allowing spindles to find their way into homes up and down the country.
The treads and risers of the stairs are carpeted. This is because with the white walls and oak stairs, there needs to be another material/colour in order to break up the colour scheme in the hallway. Secondly, with the oak flooring in the hallway, having oak treads and risers might end up being overpowering, esspecially in a hallway of that size.
