If you ever you need reassurance about the quality of the staircases we pride ourselves on, why not pop into Smart Furnishings in Stockton Heath, Warrington to find out how pleased they are with their Abbott-Wade installations?
Our nationwide service takes us all around the country and on this occasion, it was to Colchester in Essex. Colchester is reported to be the oldest town in Britain and, while Mr Wagstaff’s staircase wasn’t quite as old, it was in need of the Abbott-Wade touch, and nobody was left disappointed.
Here at Abbott-Wade, we are proud to be a family run business and we like to deal with other family-run businesses where we can. Why? Because we know first hand of the benefits of being a family-run business. We understand that everybody takes accountability and has to pull their weight; there are no personal agendas and everybody looks after each other. When it’s in everybody’s best interest to ensure that every job is done well; where they all have a responsibility to each other to ensure that standards are maintained and the reputation of the company is upheld; you know that you are going to receive the best possible outcome! These things can only happen when you have a team comprised of more than just ‘employees’.
We make no secret of our love for, or fascination with staircases. And while you won’t find an Abbott-Wade staircase on this list, and we certainly would like to refurbish any of them, this is simply a self indulgent collection of open-air staircases from around the world that we love and we know you will too.
Name: The Spanish Steps
Location: Rome, Italy
Number of steps: 135
Interesting note: Not in in the country which the name suggests, the Spanish Steps in fact owe their name to the Palazzo di Spagna, seat of the Embassy of Spain.
Glass balustrades are hugely popular and it’s pretty clear to understand why. Apart from looking elegant from every angle and giving unobstructed views of your bespoke staircase installation, a glass balustrade allows light to distribute itself throughout your hallway and helps to give the illusion of more space. Our 10mm toughened Pilkington glass ensures that not only will your glass balustrade look stunning, but you can be assured that you have a safe and strong installation in your home.
