The staircase can set the tone for a house. It is often the first thing visitors see as they enter – so it is important for it to look right, and to stand up to the rigours of frequent footsteps. Howdens has a range of newel and spindle designs to suit any interior, all crafted in high quality pine or solid or engineered white oak. Spindles can be painted or stained. Our staircases, in Scandinavian Whitewood with MDF treads and risers, are manufactured to BS 585 1989, and should be fitted following Approved Document K.
