|Bring your design ideas to life with our cutting-edge StairCreator. At the click of a mouse, you can experiment in the comfort of your own home with different styles of staircase that you might otherwise find hard to visualise, and get an instant quote. Step-by-step instructions will guide you through the process of choosing all the stair parts to build up a customised, three-dimensional image of the finished product that you can rotate and view from every angle.|
The StairCreator is easy to use, and you can go back at any time to alter your choices and get a feel for how the staircase might look with different materials, colours and components. Not only will the image of the stairs change each time you enter a new requirement, but the price will also update automatically to reflect your adjustments.
It’s a great way to keep tabs on your budget – if oak seems too expensive, for example, you can select a more economical timber such as pine or hemlock to see how much you would save. Changing the style, such as swapping a cut string for a closed string design, is another good way to keep costs down.
You might also like to choose one or two feature steps to give the stairs an initial flourish, with either softly rounded bullnose or more pronounced 'D end' shapes available in a variety of combinations. The StairCreator will demonstrate how each style would look.
|Factors such as the size, style and colour of the handrail, spindles, treads and newel posts are all down to you. If you don't like the look of any of them, you can go back and modify the design as many times as you like. Certain combinations are not compatible with each other, usually for safety or structural reasons, and the StairCreator will let you know when this is the case.
