Our client was converting a run down building into a holiday homes in Breakish – just over the Skye bridge. We were involved at an early stage so were able to advise on the size of stairwell opening to allow for the ‘tightest’ yet compliant staircase. It was a small property so space was at a premium plus the floating staircase selected opened up the living area allowing the passage of light.
Wall Mounted Handrail
To be as accommodating as possible for potential young or elderly holiday tenants, our client wanted a wall mounted handrail running down the side of the staircase. The was a 50mm diameter beech rail which was curved to follow the shape of the stringers. This was not jut for aesthetic reasons, it also ensured that the handrail remained a consistent height from the stair for ease of use.
Floor to Floor Height
Again, thinking of potential customers visiting the holiday home, our client added on a small section of carpet to each tread. The wall stringer was supplied in white painted timber to blend into the wall and enhance the floating feel to the staircase.
Curved Timber Handrail
A curved timber handrail was specified by our client after seeing pictures of similar designs and she loved it’s twisting nature. This was added in matching beech measuring 150 x 42mm and spanned directly from the newels top and bottom of the staircase.
