Welcome to the Pear Stairs Blog

We love what we do at Pear Stairs, because every day is different. We might be working on a premium oak staircase one day, and budget whitewood space-saver stairs the next.

Over the years our staircases have appeared in many publications including Cheshire Life, Period Ideas and Build It, as well as on TV programmes such as DIY SOS: The Big Build. We even supplied stairs for the athletes’ village at the 2012 London Olympics.

Take a look at our blog to see what we’ve been up to lately.
