Need to refurb unsafe stairs... glass or these spindles shown on BBC2?
last modified: last year
Hello lovely Houzzers
These stairs are very non health and safety and I need to sort them out once and for all! I toyed with the idea of a new staircase until I got the quotes!
I am now thinking of refurbing them and adding the very necessary handrail and also backs to the stairs so I can have a cupboard underneath. I will then carpet them. The decor in the house is quite modern and white doors etc so I was thinking of mainly a white stairs with oak handrail
I was thinking of glass as the hallway is quite narrow. Please see the second picture of a design which I like.
I thought spindles may look a little busy for the space until I was watching the Interior Design Challenge show and saw some very attractive spindles which I have never seen before! Does anyone know how easy it would be for a carpenter to make these or can they be supplied in kit form?
The photos show the staircase in white before it was renovated on the programme in grey, I am not sure if the grey one is actually metal and I would prefer wood. I prefer the white design anyway!
Finally which look do you think would be the best option? I am all ears and very grateful to you for reading my post. Any advice would be so welcome :-)
