Why a new staircase?
When we moved to our home forty five years ago, my husband and I never liked the existing staircase, we felt that it was very dated. We had a young family at the time so I could never afford to have it replaced. So we kept painting it and saying ‘one day we will have a new staircase installed’.
I saw the Abbott-Wade brochure and thought the transformations in it were stunning. I had a demonstration of all the various staircase designs and then had the measurements taken. The cost was about what I had envisaged.
Decision making process:
The fact that Abbott-Wade was a family-run company appealed to me and the staff were friendly. One company turned out to be very expensive.
I chose light oak throughout as my flooring is light oak parquet herring bone design. I was glad I did as the result is stunning. Both friends and neighbours have all commented on how beautiful it looks.
I only wish I could have afforded it years ago. I absolutely love my new staircase. The whole process took forty eight hours to complete and the workmen were very tidy, clearing away the mess and cleaning up as they went. They were also very friendly.
