Stairs in Progress - Walton-on-Thames

Social Media 57.jpg

This one of a kind project just left our factory earlier this week and is ready for installation in Walton-on-Thames. When we first met the Client they did not have a clear idea of what they were trying to achieve with the staircase other than that it had to be a feature piece. We from Smet Staircases invited the Client to make the short trip to our showroom in Belgium where we guided them through all the options and showed them our design and production process.

The Client went for this modern Z-shaped staircase with a solid French Oak panel balustrade. The Z-shaped treads & risers not only give the staircase a more modern look, but they also create a smoother and more elegant going.


Now what this staircase really sets apart is the panel balustrade. Not only is it made out of solid French Oak, but it is also almost fully curved with the splay at the start of the staircase and a curved section on every 90° turn.


This has then all been finished with a completely bespoke staining and is ready to be installed. We’ll make sure to keep you up to date with more pictures once the staircase sits in place!
