Our clients began their staircase transformation by sending us the two images below, asking us to design the perfect solution. Following the First Step Designs process we were able to provide an accurate quotation and drawing of the staircase renovation, all without a home visit! A free service that no other staircase company are able to offer, we allow pressure free browsing time and the opportunity to see what the finished project will look like.


Once Mr and Mrs Browne decided to go ahead with the project their initial designer went to visit, sharing samples of our products and explaining the full renovation process, ensuring our clients were fully informed of what to expect. Their designer then conducted the technical survey and booked the installation date on the same day. This service is unique to First Step and we believe this is why almost every one of our clients chooses to go ahead with us.Browne6

Following the completion of the survey our fitting team were back within 4 weeks to complete the full installation. One key aspect of staircase renovation is that the carpet is lifted in order for us to achieve a perfect finish, the same carpet can be used after the installation with no need for replacement. These images show the finished installation before the carpets were re-laid


Mr and Mrs Browne chose one of our most popular staircase styles, a toughened glass balustrade with all of the structural components fitted with solid oak and oak veneer. Once the carpet is in place the staircase the transformation will be complete, giving the Brownes a beautiful piece of furniture and adding significant value to the property.


We believe what takes a great project to perfection is all to do with detailing. Every part of the staircase has been square edged; from the replacement Oak posts with square groove caps, to the brackets used to clamp the glass in place. The Brownes wanted a modern update and chose a truly contemporary staircase.


All of our products pass British safety standards and current building regulations. If your building control officer is in need of any documentation to prove this, it is not a problem at all! Additionally all of our glass products are stamped with a company logo and reference number to prove that the toughening process has taken place.


One of the key factors that separates us from other companies and builders is our attention to detail. Our installers boast years of experience in fitting the most complex jobs, taking pride in every fit and ensuring each component is finished to their superior standards.
