This 70’s property in Chichester, West Sussex had a typical style of staircase to suit that era. The owners of the property, who have used M.J Carpentry & Joinery for their services over the years came back to us asking for our help.
We were asked if we could create a more modern look, by simply adding new oak handrails and newel caps to the existing staircase. The work was fairly straight forward, all cuts and machining was achieved onsite, this way the owner was also around to answer any questions we had in regards to how they wanted the stairs to look, including the finer details such as routering the sharp edges of the oak to create a smooth rounded edge, which is nice for the hand to glide over when using the stairs.
For this project the owners had sourced the oak planks themselves as there was a very competitive price from a local supplier to them. We were just needed for the labour involved to cut everything to size and glue/fit everything into position. I’m sure you’ll agree, the impact you get visually from simply adding the new oak materials has changed the look completely. This project was also very cost effective in comparison to a complete refurb of a staircase.
Please look at the pictures for this job and don’t hesitate to be in touch if you’d like an update like this one or a full refurb of your stairs.
