Comparison between bespoke and flatpack staircases for domestic properties.

When upgrading your staircase, there’s a lot to think about.

Materials, shapes, sizes, accessories – but have you thought about flatpack or bespoke staircase designs, and which will best meet your requirements?

Over the years, self-assembly furniture has skyrocketed in popularity, and it’s no different for staircases – but can they offer individuality the way a bespoke staircase design can?

Here are a few things you should know about flatpack and bespoke staircase designs to help you decide between them.


Flatpack Staircase Designs

In truth, affordability is one of the biggest advantages of flatpack staircase kits, being much cheaper to buy than a full, bespoke staircase – which for many people is the main consideration.

One of our Flatpack Staircase Kits will be ideal for you if you’re working with a tight budget.

If you’re a DIY enthusiast looking for your next project, a flatpack staircase kit might also be the one for you.

They’re relatively easy to install, but all of our kits come with simple step-by-step instructions so you can ensure everything is set up correctly and safely.

In some cases, there are suggestions of poorer quality, with flatpack staircase kits not being as solid as bespoke designs.

There’s also no individuality, and your exact design may be replicated across hundreds of other homes in the country.

Although they have many benefits, flatpack staircases don’t tick every box.


Bespoke Staircase Designs

There’s something irresistibly beautiful about a bespoke staircase design, knowing that it’s special and unique to you.

Whether you’re working with an unusual or narrow space, or you just want something a little different; bespoke staircases are a real luxury that most people would relish.

A bespoke design can cater to nearly any space limitation, and can include curves, landings, and other features that will add to the uniqueness of your home. 

They’re far more versatile, and you have more choice in terms of materials and accessories – but this doesn’t come cheap, and if you’re working with a small budget, it won’t be ideal.

If cost isn’t your main priority, then a bespoke design is definitely worth looking into.
