Kent Staircases & Stairs

Kent Stairs

Kent is England’s oldest county and its architecture and buildings reflect this, housing numerous stately homes and manor houses, featuring grand staircases as a prominent centrepiece. Knole House is one of England’s largest stately homes and resides in Kent. It once had an impressive fifty two staircases, although now the number is much lower. If you did, however, need that many staircases, Pear Stairs could make fifty two very different staircase options for each part of your home.

Knole House, as well as other famous land marks in Kent, like Penshurst Place and Dover Castle, have been used in films such as The Other Boleyn Girl, Sherlock Holmes and Pirates of the Caribbean. In these homes, staircases, particularly the set of stairs in the entrance hall, were designed to be a central feature of the house and to impress guests. Pear Stairs can provide luxury staircases to be the first thing visitors to your home see, and also add massive value to your property. D-end and bullnose steps are one of the main period features that can be easily replicated by the Pear Stairs designers , to give your staircase the 'wow' factor.

Oak Stairs in Kent

Solid wooden stairs were always used in these homes, particularly oak. When using oak Pear Stairs only uses solid oak, to design staircases that are just as grand and impressive as those in the period manors of Kent.

Space-saver Stairs for your Kent home

The ever-growing popularity of Kent means that more and more homes are being built every year. These homes are often smaller and more modern to accommodate the overflowing London population.

As well as the traditional, grand staircases, Pear Stairs also creates more modern features and space saving stairs. Pear Stairs' space-saving stairs are ideal for those properties with limited room, they use alternating cut away tread depths and come with a range of space-saving handrails for access to non-habitable rooms. Furthermore, Pear Stairs’ more modern staircases, which can feature glass side panels or Fusion staircases are perfect for the modern architectural buildings being built in Kent, such as The Quays, which won Kent’s residential architecture award in 2010. These buildings are on the rise in Kent, with residents wanting to bring aspects of cosmopolitan London with them into the suburbs. Pear Stairs can easily accommodate these needs, with technology and designers which can add modern or period features to any set of stairs.

Despite being a county filled with history, Kent manages to combine both historical 14th, 15th and 16th century manor houses with modern designs inspired by nearby London. Pear Stairs can cater for any period of property, designing a staircase that is perfectly suited to your home.
