The basic staircase layout is usually envisaged already in the early stages of planning, which is why we recommend that you pay attention to it during the design stage.
Depending on their layout, we distinguish between the following types of stairs:
- Straight stairs, where all treads are rectangular in shape. The treads can either run in the same line from beginning to end (single-flight stairs) or they can be divided by an intermediate landing with a turn (stairs with two or more flights). A special type of straight stairs is goose step stairs, which are a great solution when space is extremely limited.
- Winder stairs, which either have no intermediate landings or they are replaced with pie-shaped steps. Curved stairs are a special type of winder stairs where the load-bearing structure is curved on one or both sides. Spiral or circular stairs with treads that radiate around a central pole are also well known.
Depending on the shape and functionality of the interior, your staircase can either be self-supporting or on a concrete structure.
Self-supporting staircases are made together with the stringers. These can be straight or curved, wooden or metal. By choosing different shapes, you can achieve a traditional, rustic or modern look, and as a special feature, we also offer stairs with curved or concealed stringers.
Stairs on concrete are created by lining an existing concrete structure with wood. If necessary, we also add a banister from a material of your choice to further highlight the chosen staircase style.
Sometimes a new banister is all it takes to make an interior feel fresh again. We can make individual banisters or banisters in combination with wooden stairs.
There are virtually no limits to the combinations of materials that can be had. Wood, metal (stainless steel, brass), glass, marble, rope… all can be used to create harmony and to improve the general ambiance of an interior space.
Each step cut out for you. Every staircase we make is fully customised according to the customer’s dimensions and wishes and therefore 100% unique.
To be able to comfortably place your vision along the walls, we need to precisely measure the interior, and we use a 3D scanner for this in more complex projects.
Always in style
An apartment staircase always draws and directs attention. When selecting the style and materials for your stairs, it is therefore smart to consider the other elements of your apartment: floor coverings, doors and furniture. In this way, you will ensure that the stairs seamlessly match the interior.
Always to the last detail
When designing stairs, every step has to be considered – including those taken in the dark. Besides ensuring safe use and creating a special ambiance in the room, proper lighting also highlights any unique shapes and details of the stairs.
It can be installed along the wall or under the handrails or overhangs – wherever it will add that special touch.
Good to know
What else is important for the long durability of stairs?
Appropriate indoor climate is an essential condition for the long durability of wooden stairs.
Stairs made from solid wood do best in conditions that are generally recommended for living spaces: relative humidity of 45–60% and air temperatures of 20–23 degrees Celsius. When humidity is too low or too high, cracks and other deformations appear in the wood due to shrinkage and expansion.
How to properly care for wooden stairs?
To maintain the protective layer of the varnish or oiled surface, use the care products intended for this purpose.
In cases of greater wear of the varnish or oil, the surface must be restored by re-applying the surface protection material.
What is the right way to clean wooden stairs?
It is especially important that any sand and other small particles are regularly removed from the stairs, as they will damage their protective layer and the wood. Any liquid spills must also be wiped off from the stairs immediately.
For dry cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush or a duster so as not to damage the protective layer on the surface of the stairs.
If wet cleaning is required, wipe the stairs with a soft damp cloth that is still dry enough to not leave any wet marks behind. You can also use a mild detergent that is suitable for wooden surfaces.
Steam cleaning of varnished and stained surfaces is not recommended, as it would damage the protective layer.
