How can I achieve the maximum impact of my staircase renovation whilst sticking to budget?

At Hambledon Staircases, we always stick to the quoted price – no hidden extras. We include oiling and finishing the oak on the staircase as standard.

We also quote separately for cladding the strings of the staircase. This is because if the customer would prefer to paint them, they can save themselves a chunk of the cost. Our service is completely bespoke, so we can add an oak trim to the existing string, to smarten it up at a smaller cost. Alternatively you can ask us to quote for only cladding the external strings, improving the look of the staircase without cladding the internal string sections.

Have you considered other finishes? Most frequently our customers opt for oak and glass staircase renovations but a painted and glass staircase renovations can give you a fresh and modern look at a lower price.

Updating the handrails but retaining the newel posts. This is a brilliant idea when the existing newel posts are in good condition and are high enough to meet current regulations.

We can also add additional wall hung handrails to existing staircases. Improving the safety or overall aesthetic of your stairs.

A staircase is just as much a focal point of the home as a kitchen or bathroom, we can bring samples to you to help you decide exactly which options are right for you.

Refurbishing your staircase on a budget is possible, talk to us about the options and finishes we offer.

A Carpenter’s Wife Blog

Nick and I share a passion for creativity and design. We have renovated several houses together and as I was regularly drafted in to help with his carpentry work. It was a natural step to go into business together. For many years this was an informal arrangement with me learning on my feet, including CAD, web design, tax and admin. I was itching to get involved practically so it wasn’t long before I joined Nick on-site.

We’re very lucky to enjoy our time working together. My blog is a reflection on what we are doing, what we have learnt and where we are going. It’s nice to keep a written record of our journey together and life in Dorset with three young children.
