Bisca’s designers approach every staircase or balustrade project with a blank sheet of paper and an open mind. Not having to restrict themselves to creating your design around common parts or stock items, they have complete freedom to create a commission completely unique to yourself and your property.
With a bespoke staircase, what you don’t see is as important as what you do see; A Bisca staircase or balustrade design will never feature unnecessary and ugly clamps or fixings. Engineering elegance, intelligent design, discreet interfaces and clean lines turn architecture into art.
Unless you are a serial self-builder, building your own home can be one of the most challenging, stressful, time-consuming, but ultimately rewarding, projects you undertake in your entire life.
At the very beginning you have empty space, white paper, hundreds of ideas – and your staircase(s) – all vying for position in your property; arranging these ideas on paper to optimise your space and create a home that works for your family is the tricky part.
Replacing the whole staircase in your home is not something you want to do more than once. With careful planning this process can be as simple as replacing a bathroom or kitchen – the only difference being is that a staircase is part of the architecture and will not be ripped out and replaced in a few years’ time as is the case with kitchens especially.
Renovating a staircase is an option you may wish to consider if your existing staircase is structurally sound but just looking tired or dated. The most cost effective and popular option for updating a staircase is just to replace the balustrade and handrail. Going further you may wish to add new feature treads at the foot of the staircase or perhaps re-clad the staircase in timber for a completely new look without the cost of a new staircase.
