Traditional Stairs

Often in a period home a modern staircase with glass and stainless steel components will look out of place and the character and value of the home can be enhanced by maintaining the styling from the time of the home’s production. Victorian, Edwardian and California Bungalow are three prominent styles in Melbourne found in our established suburbs. The key to adding value to a staircase in these type of homes is picking period details in the original home and replicating them on the new staircase. There are many ways to achieve this outcome, it can be done by linking the fretwork on the façade of the house to the balusters on the staircase or matching veranda posts to newel posts on the stair. Our experienced designers will spend the time to pick up on small details to ensure that the staircase is enhancing the overall look and feel of the home while simultaneously adding value when the house is sold.
