Staircases can make an early statement about a house, as they are often in focal view as soon as you enter the front door. Modern staircases tend to be bland and uninspiring. English Salvage offer a huge range of staircase options, from complete antique staircases to individual spindles.
We sometimes sell a grand staircase to a customer at the early stage of their build, whether a new house, a barn conversion or extension. In this way they can build around the staircase, rather than try and shoehorn something in at the last stage. We also offer lots of options for re-vamping staircases, including complete sets of stair spindles. In the 18th and early 19th century, staircases were usually quite simple and refined, apart from really grand houses. The 19th century saw the advent of large scale iron foundries and ornate cast iron spindles and newel posts became quite common in larger town houses and commercial properties.
We also commonly sell ornate wooden spindles and balustrading to interior designers who incorporate them into bar and shop fittings.
