Thanks for the response. Would you consider recreating them for my project in Brighton? I really like them and struggling to find anything quite as wonderful. :-) Cheers.

This is a new build. The stairs in the previous dormer bungalow that occupied the site were standard timber carcass with carpet.


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kate Burt added this to 13 Fresh Options for Painted Stairs
Be edgyIf you live, perhaps, in a 1960s or 1970s house, you might have an open-tread staircase designed a bit like this – which provides a whole lot of additional possibilities with paint. The wood in these designs is a nice feature to keep, especially if it’s a nod to your home’s midcentury heritage, so focus instead on the edges of your staircase (the strip is called the ‘stringer’). With no wall on the right-hand side, you can really make a statement by painting the exterior of the stringer, too. The colour here will impact on the room around it more than it might in an enclosed hall, so be sure to pick out a few details or accessories in the same shade to tie your paintwork into the room as a whole. (Incidentally, to comply with Building Regulations, new open-tread staircases typically will need to have a safety wire or similar behind each tread so that small children aren’t at risk of slipping through the gaps.)

not green, but design is good. Not acrylic, use metal rails.
