Here at Smet Staircases UK, we believe that a staircase can become a buildings' main focal point. That's why we bundled up some of our most recent and inspiring staircase projects completed by our highly skilled craftsmen in Belgium.
Our recent Walton-on-Thames project is another strong case for promoting skylights over the staircase hall... They make a huge difference to the whole atmosphere and highlight the textures in the used materials.
This feature central staircase is fully self-supporting and has a double curved grand splay at the start for the ultimate wow factor.
We used solid Beech for the treads, risers and stringers, and solid French Oak for the handrail. The seamless glass balustrade was fitted in between the stringer and handrail.
Our first Swiss Client sent us pictures of their stunning finished hallway where we designed and installed a spiral balustrade and stringer over four floors.
The staircase has solid French Oak treads and risers and solid Beech stringers, painted white for a two tone look.
We kept it simple, yet elegant, with plain round steel spindles.

Wooden engineering shown in the best way possible, on our recent Sutton project.
The self-supporting French Oak treads & risers, Z-shaped to increase the going on the steps, in combination with the glass panels, cut to follow the Z-shaped pattern, make for a winning combination.
The magnificent light feature transforms this hallway into an extraordinary place.
This luxurious Chelwood Gate home deserved nothing less than a stunning, one of a kind staircase, that takes your breath away from the moment you walk through the front door.
With a glass balustrade, curved on either side at the start, and white painted stringers, the entrance hall remains bright and open.
These pictures speak for themselves... The epitome of understated luxury. Serene and grand at the same time.
The Walton-on-Thames staircase really is a one of a kind staircase, where we used solid French Oak panels for the balustrade, stained to match with the colour of the wooden floors.
It curves beautifully in every turn and makes a grand sweep at the start.
Simple, yet elegant and sophisticated.
The staircases for our recent Camden project are made of two different kinds of wood for a two toned look: solid Beech for risers and stringer and solid French Oak for treads and handrail, stained to a different colour.
The balustrade, consisting of wrought iron spindles, curves all the way up.

This recent Brentwood project has got a curved and continuous handrail and balustrade running up three floors.
We used solid French Oak for the treads and handrail and solid Beech for the risers and stringers.
The wrought iron spindles are a combination of the 'Dieppe' and the 'Nantes' spindle.
This recent Beaconsfield project was based on a previous project of ours, the Orpington project.
We used solid Beech for the stringers, treads and risers and solid French Oak for the handrail. The wrought iron balustrade is a combination of the 'Dieppe' spindle and the 'Nantes' spindle.
The staircase has a completely continuous handrail and balustrade without intermediate posts.
Looking for a traditional lay-out with a contemporary twist? This wooden staircase is made from solid French Oak and laminated curved glass. Because of these materials and its bespoke design, the staircase adds both flair and feel of space in the great entrance hall of a stunning contemporary country house in Finchampstead.
The wooden staircase blends perfectly with the rest of the interior design while being in keeping with the house’s origin. This, together with adding an LED strip light in the side of the staircase, on the wall side and in the underside of the first step and low iron glass semi
risers on the other treads, makes this staircase a wow factor without being in your face.
Designed as a horseshoe shaped stairwell with a fully continuous handrail, this staircase gives the whole hallway a different dynamic. The treads, risers and handrails are also combined with painted stringers and old bronze finished spindles, giving the whole staircase a rich but subtle appearance of understated luxury.
