Most of this content used to be part of the main My Scrapbook page but as of 2015-11-14 I’ve given it a sub-page of its own since it was getting a bit long.
The staircase above has a simple form-follows-function design. I don’t mind seeing the joints that hold the treads and risers together when they look as good as this.
The cantilevered staircase above has a very simple, clean appearance – it looks like the glass is slicing through each of the treads. These treads are in walnut but I’d prefer something a little paler, probably oak.
The photo above shows another Bisca staircase, a little like the one from Meer End.
The photo above shows another cantilevered staircase with a different take on the balustrade.
The staircase above is similar to the first one from Bisca and is pretty much exactly what I want. I think the wood here is Walnut whereas I will be using European Oak, to match the other wood flooring on the landings and elsewhere in the house.
