Knowing how to design a stair case is a must if you are planning a new build, converting your loft or attic, redesigning a hallway or have stripped your house back to its shell for a complete makeover.

Whether renovating or building a new home we can help you design a stair case that reflects your own style and identity. The finished product can range from contemporary and innovative to elegant and conventional.

Stair Design - Open Risers

Stair Design: Open Risers

Open riser stairs are very popular, especially in confined spaces or terrace houses. Open risers design allow you to look through the stairs giving an illusion of extra space.

It also allows natural light to pass through. This is beneficial for keeping tight spots, such as hallways or small rooms well lit.

Stair Design - Closed Risers

Stair Design: Closed Risers

A closed riser stair is the more traditional type of staircase. The solid risers are a practical choice as you are able to customise them in many ways. You are able to easily carpet them for a quieter, softer stair. If you are looking to make use of additional space, underneath the stairs can be fully or partially enclosed, making great storage spaces for things like school bags, shoes, or the vacuum cleaner.

We are able to provide you multiple options and solutions when it comes to closed risers. Whether it’s a study nook, additional shelving, or a wine cellar, we are able to customise your stairs to fit your needs.

I would just like to take the time to thank Southern Stairs and the installers who did a fantastic job and left the site as if they had never even been here. We would have no problems recommending you to anybody else. Thanks again for a wonderful job.
