Oak & Glass Staircase and Oak Floors

Oak Flooring, Staircase & Doors

Peter Bond from Hertfordshire visited Harrogate on business when he happened to pass our showroom. He was in the process of building a house and was looking for a supplier of oak for his oak flooring and staircase in a new property. After having a good look around our showroom, speaking to the staff and receiving the information he needed, he returned to Hertfordshire deciding to use Oak by Design. We continued our relationship by email and phone.

Peter liked our oak flooring that was smoked and brushed proving a lovely, warm, textured finish and chose this for the 65 square meters he required for the sitting room, study and landing areas.

He had installed pre-formed concrete steps in the property and these led directly from the entrance hall. Peter wanted something striking and to act as a focal point. He chose to have them covered in oak with solid glass walls instead of traditional oak spindles.

Liaising with both Peter and his architect David Howorth, we made the stairs from twelve 2-sided ‘L shaped’ oak covers. We then smoked and brushed the covers to match the oak flooring. They ‘sat’ perfectly on the pre-formed steps as these were made to exacting measurements.

The oak flooring and steps when they were delivered to Hertfordshire where everything was installed by Mr Bond’s joiners and carpenters.

The glass of the stairs echoed the glass balustrades outside in the garden as well as the all-glass shower enclosures in the bathrooms and en-suite. The oak was continued throughout the house on the doors, both internal and external, and the staircase handrail. The oak contrasted well with the other neutral products throughout the house.  They included chrome door fittings, limestone fireplace and Jura beige limestone paths.

The intention was to create a luxurious property with lots of space and light. Peter and his team have certainly achieved this! We are proud to have played such an important part in this project.
