A bespoke staircase is a custom-made staircase that is designed and built to fit your specific requirements, style, and space. It is a one-of-a-kind piece that is unique to your home or building. A bespoke staircase provides an opportunity to create a striking focal point in your property that not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also adds value to your home.
A bespoke staircase offers numerous benefits over standard or prefabricated staircases. It provides you with complete control over the design, materials, and finishes used in the creation of your staircase. With a bespoke staircase, you can choose from a wide range of materials, designs, and finishes to create a staircase that is truly unique and tailored to your needs.
A bespoke staircase can also be designed to suit your specific lifestyle and practical needs. For example, if you have young children or elderly relatives living with you, you can design a staircase that is safe and accessible for them. You can also utilize the space under the staircase for storage or other purposes.

The standard staircase width in the UK is between 900mm and 1000mm. This is the minimum width required by building regulations and is designed to accommodate the majority of users. However, it is important to note that building regulations also stipulate that a staircase should be wide enough to allow two people to pass each other safely. So, if you have a larger than average household or expect to entertain guests frequently, it may be worth considering a wider staircase.
