Types Of Staircases
Glass and Oak
A toughened glass and oak staircase exudes sheer beauty and simplicity. Bringing a touch of modern art to this family home. The striking transformation combines contemporary glass balustrade with solid oak handrail.
Therefore, creating a timeless look that brings traditional carpentry in to the 21st century. Not only does a toughened glass and oak design open up your hallway with more light, but is a stylish focal point too.
Our elegant slim oak spindle staircases feature evenly-spaced, slim spindles which open up the balustrade. It is a design classic, handcrafted to transform any space.
The golden oak timber instantly warms any room and the beautifully turned spindles allow light from the upper and lower floors to flow through, illuminating even the smallest spaces.
This sought-after design can instantly transform your existing staircase, modernising and updating your home in under 48 hours.
Softwood and MDF
Using softwood and MDF as the materials to construct the staircase offers a cheaper alternative to exotic hardwoods without compromising on the design and quality. We tend to offer this option if the staircase is going to be painted.
Softwood and MDF stairs can also have glass or metal balustrading incorporated effortlessly into the design for what will be in essence a stunning piece of furniture.

Environment is Close to Our Heart
At Wooden Luxury Joinery, we strive to look after our planet and championing the use of sustainable timber is key for us. All of our stairs are made using timber sourced from well sustained forestry and our customers can be rest assured that our timber products hold the highest certification with the Forest Stewardship Council. We work hard to reduce energy consumption and limit impact on the environment, with our sustainable promise assuring customers that every time a tree is cut down, a new one is planted in the forests that we source from.
Components of an Oak Staircase
There are many stair parts which are involved in the manufacturing of your staircase and it can be helpful to know the difference between them so you can communicate with our designers exactly what you want – here is a quick guide to each part.
- Tread – This is the top or horizontal surface of each step in the staircase – the wider the tread is, the more foot space there is on each step, which can minimise the potential for accidents.
- Riser – The riser is the vertical part of each step – the taller the rise, the steeper the staircase.
- Landing Return – This is the flat area of flooring usually at a right angle to the top of the staircase.
- Base Rail(s) – Runs parallel to the handrail(s) at the base of the spindles.
- Hand Rail(s) – The hand rails run diagonally with the pitch of the stairs and it is the rail you place your hand on to help you walk up and down the stairs. Dependent on the location of the staircase, it may be fitted against the wall on one or both sides. It is also worth noting the word banister is often used to refer to this.
- Spindle / Baluster – These are the vertical posts between the base rail and handrail which are a decorative feature as well as providing support for the handrail.
- Newel Post – This is the post at the top and bottom of the stairs which supports the handrail at each end.
- Newel Caps – Newel Caps are caps which sit on top of the Newel Posts – these are usually used to add a decorative touch to the staircase.
- Half Newel Post – A Half Newel post is used when the stair fits against the wall on the landing.
- Continuous Fittings – These are fittings to allow staircases to continue around corners and across landings which may or may not be required depending on how your home is structured.
