Bespoke Staircases


Curved Staircases – elegant, stylish and practical

Curved stairs (also sometimes called a helical staircase or circular staircase) can be exquisitely beautiful and make a striking design feature. Imagine a gently flowing arc.

Unlike a spiral staircase, the treads do not revolve around a central column, which means their radius tends to be wider than that of the spiral staircase design, making them easier to climb or descend.

This staircase design idea can create a fabulous focal point. Curved stairs add style and elegance to any room.

An elliptical staircase is not perfectly circular but is formed like an oval or egg shape, making an unusual and arresting design feature.

Curved staircases can also be made in a spine beam format, where the treads are fixed to a long central beam running underneath the stair treads, creating a stylish and modern design solution.

Points to consider

Every curved staircase is unique. The requirement for bespoke design, manufacture and installation is likely to mean increased build time and cost, when compared to spiral staircases.
