That’s an impressive…


Just another thank you for a job well done. Adam, Andy and Andy were a pleasure to have in our home, I would recommend First Step to anyone!

Mandy Renton, Welland

Great service throughout the process, from initial enquiry, to design and installation.

P Hughes, St Neots

Great work from the team, excellent communication from start to finish and a lovely team of installers too. Great job to the Andy's and Adam for project managing!

A Leach

So happy that we found a company that were willing to design and perfect the image that we found in Pinterest! Thanks so much to the team for all their hard work in both design and installation. You were a pleasure to work with 🙂

B Walker, Nottingham

Really fast communication from design to quotation. The team worked so hard for three days and the finished result it just amazing! Great job to Adam, Tom and the two Andys!

Mrs Sharp

I contacted First Direct about my challenging stair project in September and received a prompt response from Adam followed by a site visit. Adam was extremely helpful and professional and was very flexible in accommodating my requirements. He kept in contact regularly in the lead time up until the installation so I always knew what was going on. The installation itself was very well done and I am thrilled with the end result. It is a craftsman finish with great attention to detail. Andy & Andy were at all times courteous and professional and they went the extra mile to make sure that I was happy with the job. I would certainly recommend this company to anyone considering a stair renovation project.

Barbara Powley

First class professional attention and communication at all times.

Daniel Hague

We have been very impressed with First Step Designs from the moment we made contact with them. They have been thoroughly professional in their dealings with us and the quality of the finished staircase surpassed our expectations.
