That’s an impressive…


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.

Mat Hornsby

Excellent service from start (design) to finish (completion and installation of staircase).

Gerard Thompson, Warwickshire

We've just had our staircase updated using First Step Designs. We are delighted with the result, our old wooden spindles and posts have been replaced with oak posts and glass. The effect is much lighter and more modern. First Step Design's service was great from start to finish. Our designer, Adam, made a home visit and spent time showing us the various materials and explaining options and making suggestions. He the drew up the design and quotation, within days. All the work was done within the time frame which we agreed at the start, there were no delays or hitches. The materials ( the wood, the glass and he fixings) are all of a high quality. The installation team of two men was professional, careful and polite. i have no hesitation in recommending First Step Designs to anyone who is considering updating or renewing their staircase.

From day 1, First Step Designs were very friendly and professional and a pleasure to deal with. The quality of the product and the skill of the fitter were excellent. We will recommend them to all our friends and family.

David Cruxton

We were very pleased with first step designs from the moment we found their website and submitted some photographs which enabled to provide a preliminary design and quote. Their price was very competitive so we decided to work up the design with them which did not affect the price. The end product is a wonderful improvement to our home and I would recommend first steps design in preference to the big national companies, they are more competitive, more open and provide an excellent service.
