Carpet to Oak Staircase

The Brief

Staircases can often be taken for granted but the right one can be the perfect greeting for you and your guests. The right staircase should be practical and the focal point of the home. 

The client wanted to replace their existing carpet and paint finish staircase with a new Oak staircase that would match with the surroundings of the entrance and the new flooring in their home. 

Action Taken

The first step was to measure up the staircase, this was fairly basic as we were doing a direct replacement of the carpet that was currently down. However, there was an addition of a double bullnose bottom step which was slightly more complicated. 

The biggest challenge of this whole project was having to work around and above a newly finished downstairs bathroom, taking lots of care that we didn’t damage any of the newly fitted tiles. This meant that the making of the staircase was a fairly straightforward job but the fitting was slightly more tricky. 


The time and care we took paid off as we finished the job to find that everything, including the new downstairs bathroom, was damage-free. All the finishings were completed to a perfect standard and we also added an Oak door to the cupboard under the stairs and an Oak loft hatch. Everything matched perfectly to keep the bespoke theme throughout the home consistent and on-trend.

There are plenty of companies out there offering a refurbishment of existing stairs or producing and delivering stair parts but very few who specialise in building and installing staircases. JLA Joinery came up on the radar due to their excellent website and it was a pleasure to do business with them. James and his team were quiet, hard-working, punctual and professional during the two weeks they were onsite and kept the working areas clean and dust-free before they left each day. The staircase build and installations were done to very high-quality standards and we were very pleased with the performance of the whole team at JLA Joinery. We are very pleased with the final result of our solid oak staircase and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending JLA Joinery.
