That’s an impressive…


We have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail shown from First Step Designs from initial enquiry to completion of our oak and glass staircase. Nathaniel was our project manager and oversaw our entire renovation in a thoughtful, conscientious and courteous manner. Our installation team, led by Adam, were a pleasure to have in our home, excellent craftsmen and displayed full commitment to providing us with a wonderful end product. We would absolutely have no hesitation in highly recommending First Step Designs.

The team at First Step Designs were great from the initial design to build and fitting. Our staircase was not the most straightforward but it looks stunning!


First Step Designs recently designed and fitted a beautiful oak and glass staircase for our new extension. The design team, Adam and Nathaniel were amazingly helpful, creative and detail conscious. There were a number of challenges with the space, but the finished stairs are amazing. The fitting team, another Adam and Mike did a wonderful job too. Dealing with First Steps Designs from start to finish has been a pleasure. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone needing a new stairs or stair renovation.

I found First Step on the web and filled the online form in. Quick and easy to use. Adam mailed back and asked for pictures to clarify things. Then I received a mail with the quotation. Higher than I had anticipated but OK. No hard sell, just a take it or leave it price. I took it, and arranged for Adam to visit and get the staircase I wanted designed and measured. Adam explained absolutely everything to me and made me feel at ease with how the project would be handled. After a bit of a mix up with dates, the fitters duly arrived. After a brief talk over the plans the two of them quickly got to work, and quick is the word! Was it messy? Yes. Was it noisy? Yes. Was it worth the mess, the noise and the money? A very definite YES! The fitters are absolute artisans. They build the stairs not so much from the plans, but using the fantastic skills and experience they have. Totally building it to my request and wishes. Now it is the centre piece of my house. Everyone comments on how good it looks. So a big thank you to Adam, the fitters and everyone at First Step Designs.

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!
