Your hallway is often the first space you’ll see when stepping foot inside; it gives visitors an idea of what to expect from your home, so why not make that an impression of style? Your staircase can be much more than just a functional, structural element, with many breathtaking designs available to add a statement to one of the most used areas in your home.
There are many types of stairs out there, with different solutions working well for various tastes and households. Choosing the right kind of stairs for you means a personal touch for your home, and adds market value should you ever decide to sell.
Renovating your staircase
There’s no need to replace your staircase if the one you have is structurally sound. You should be able to renovate your existing stairs to achieve beautiful results, which means working with what you have when designing your new entryway. A carefully-considered staircase renovation might mean replacing newel posts, handrails, base rails, and spindles, with new parts. Whether you have a small staircase or more room to work with, you’ll have lots of options when it comes to updating the look and feel of your space.
The different types of stairs
Straight staircases are timeless, and often just need a few tweaks to become an impressive feature of your hallway. Still, there are many types of staircases you might consider. Whether you’re updating your existing case or replacing your stairs with a beautiful new design, think about which type will be best for your home.
Straight staircases often feature in smaller homes, or larger homes like townhouses with a narrow entryway. Straight staircases feature a linear flight that doesn’t change direction.
Dark In-line Glass Staircase
Curved staircases change direction in a continuous flight. Their sweeping bannister is a striking feature in hallways with this type of stair.
Luxury Steel Staircase Design
L-shaped or quarter-turn staircases are a popular option for larger homes, offering a little more design flexibility than their straight counterparts. These staircases make a 90-degree turn, either left or right, after a small landing.
Opus Steel Staircase
Like an L-shaped staircase, U-shaped stairs simply take another turn, with a landing connecting two parallel flights of stairs.
Beautiful In-line Staircase
An imperial staircase is a staircase with more than one flight separated by landings. This elegant option is a typical feature of mansions and manor houses, separating multiple stories with plenty of space in the hallway below.
Sometimes known as split stairs, bifurcated stairs boast one set of wide steps which splits off into two narrower staircases heading in opposite directions. These two split cases usually reach the same level.
In-line Glass Staircase
Whatever type of staircase you choose, whether you’re renovating your existing hallway or redesigning your entire space, be sure to consider the size and shape you’re working with. When you choose Neville Johnson for your staircase renovation, our expert designers will work with you every step of the way to ensure a finish that works for you.

Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
