Different Stair Systems: Choosing The Right One For Your Home


Thursday, September 17, 2020

From contemporary to traditional styles, we have a stair system to suit every home and décor. A new stairway can change the whole look and feel of your home, but deciding which style to choose can be a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. In this blog we take you through our different stair systems and styles so you have all the information to find the perfect design for your home.  

Contemporary Systems

For modern and minimalist style homes we recommend our contemporary collection, featuring our latest trend led stair balustrade designs. Moving away from the traditional wooden staircase, we have a variety of different finishes, from glass to metal, offering a more up to date look. Within contemporary, we have Immix®, Elements® and Fusion®.



A stunning combination of white oak handrails and sleek gun-metal connectors, bringing a distinctive minimalist elegance to any home. Not only that, Immix® glass panels create a feeling of extra space and light. Immix® works well in both small and large interiors as the glass panels brighten up the area, expanding your space.


Elements® features a choice of metal balusters or glass panels. The combination of a classic wooden rail and the contemporary metal balusters or glass panels is the perfect choice for a traditional staircase look with a modern twist.


Our award-winning Fusion® range is a wonderful way to add a contemporary twist to a traditional property or enhance the look and feel of a minimalist interior. Featuring stylish fittings in a choice of brushed nickel or chrome finishes. Available in pine or oak as well as a choice of glass or oak, complementing your existing décor is easy.


Traditional Systems

Richard Burbidge Traditional range offers a classic look that would fit in with every home’s décor. Moving away from ever changing trends, our Traditional systems will never go out of style. Within Traditional is Heritage, Classic and Trademark systems.



The real attraction of Heritage white oak is in the detail of the craftsmanship. Each component has been carefully designed with quality, safety and durability in mind, yet like all enduring designs, Heritage spindles and newels look fabulous in any setting.


Traditional in style with a hint of modern sophistication our Classic collection is beautifully crafted using the finest natural materials. With rich and warm mellow tones of straight grained white oak, it’s perfect for traditional and modern settings.


Combining great design with exceptional detail, the Trademark collection has something to suit every budget and taste. Emphasis is on the natural beauty of timber with a choice of oak and hemlock to white finish and pine. Mix and match styles to create the ideal look whether modern or traditional with turned or square designs.
