Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls

Correct us if we’re wrong, but don’t the lyrics say to deck the halls with boughs of holly not the kitchen or living room? This year, we are taking the lyrics of our favourite carol literally and doing just that, using the staircase as the centrepiece of our festive decorations.

Is your staircase the first thing you see when you open the front door? A wonderful way to make your home feel fabulously festive is by wrapping the handrails with threads of forest green garlands, real or faux. For a minimalist, elegant look, keep it green, with the occasional red velvet bow every four spindles. If you like a little light, strings of tiny white lights look wonderful wrapped in and around the greenery.

Presents under the tree is traditional, granted, but why not go a little off piste and place chicly wrapped gifts on every other step.

In short, anything your tree can do, your staircase can do just as well if not better! Send us photos of your festive staircases, we’d love to see them. And check out our latest Pinterest board for some more inspiration, which features our very own festive staircase! 

 

 

Steel the Show

Steel the Show

It’s not just about practicality. We believe you should also derive pleasure from your new staircase, too. Here at Jarrods, we love nothing better than utilising our design flare by experimenting with form, function and materials, from wood, coloured resin and glass to beautifully worked, tactile hand-finished metal.

This month we’ll be focusing on metal across our bogs and social media, sharing our favourite customer stories and transformations which show off our toughest of materials.

Sleek Accents

From gleaming steel to pewter wrought iron, metal features on a bespoke staircase can be the perfect finishing touch. Contrasted with warm-coloured timber and pristine straight-edge glass, elegantly fashioned metal elements can elevate your staircase to a work of art.

Modern-luxe

Steel is three times the strength of aluminum which means we can create strong, stylish frames and slim profiles. This in turn allows us to use large expanses of glass to open up your room, bringing in lots of beautiful natural daylight.

Every project we undertake we approach with confidence and creativity. Our team of specialists can create bespoke metalwork, whether you desire something minimalist and modern or baroque in its ornateness. Our customary attention to detail and craftsmanship will guarantee your projects specifications are not just met, but surpassed.

Top of the Glass

Top of the Glass

There’s nothing we love more than a good transformation, and our latest renovation project is one of our favourites to date. This extraordinary made-to-measure project was a labour of love on everyone’s part, and incredibly, took only 48 hours to put together.

The Renovation

The old ranch style staircase (named for it’s similarities to a ranch gate) was dated and dangerous, as children can climb up the posts and have even been known to get their heads stuck between posts. Replacing ranch panels with custom-fit glass reflects the feeling of safety and spaciousness in this hallway, whilst letting in more light. The glass enhances the beauty of the oak posts, making this renovation the perfect blend of modern and traditional.

Before

We spoke to the homeowner and asked him what he thought of the transformation.

 

What did you think of your old staircase?
The old staircase was built in the 60s, so a bit dated. I thought it was unsafe too because of the gaps between the panels, and it just made the hallway look dull especially as there is a lot of light coming into the house.
 
What made you want to renovate your staircase?
For the exact reasons above, and I thought it would be the final piece of the puzzle helping to bring the house up to date.
 
What made you choose Jarrods?
I thought Jarrods was very professional in all aspects of this transaction. The designer who came to our home was incredibly knowledgable and reassuring. He didn’t ‘blind us with science’, was very down to earth and understanding of our needs. Plus, the price quoted was much better than the competitor’s. The Architect was very good, knowledgeable and patient, too. Then comes the fitter Craig – I thought he did an awesome job. Very courteous, paid attention to detail, was very prompt to start and finished late – very professional. Overall, I had a brilliant experience with everyone representing the company.
 
What do you think of your new staircase? 
Awesome. Class. Elegant. I’ve literally spent the last 48 hours admiring my new staircase. I feel very proud. It’s very impressive and our hallway looks fabulous. An incredible transformation.
 
Would you recommend Jarrods?
Absolutely – 100 per cent.

Using yellow in your home

Here at Jarrod’s we love nothing better than utilising our design flair and our trend forecasting, by experimenting with form, function and materials. From wood, coloured resin and glass to beautifully worked, tactile hand-finished metal. We love that with the right staircase you can transform your surroundings to mirror the latest trends and styles, like the Pinkett family did in their beautiful home. The Pinkett’s were building a beautiful contemporary barn conversion so we came up with a minimalistic design with white strings, charcoal oak treads and Infinity glass. We decided to use structural glass in order to eliminate the need for newels! Adding yellow accessories like these bright cushions and lamp shade help add a pop of contrasting colour against the neutral palette of this beautiful home. Read the Pinkett Story and see the full shoot here.
