How to select the ideal staircases for your loft

The type of staircases you chose for your loft will largely influence how much you enjoy using your loft. There are two types of staircases for lofts and they are made to measure and bespoke. Staircases are an important installation in your home as they not only facilitate easy access between stories but also they add a touch of beauty to your home. So, what is the difference between these two types of staircases? Here’s a detailed overview.

Made-to measure

Made-to measure staircases are usually built by a manufacturer whereby you present them with the measurements. This type of staircase can allow you to achieve mixed designs at a tight budget. All you have to do is choose a pattern from the manufacturer’s pattern book. And as much as this staircase might sound advantageous, it also has its shortcomings. A slight mistake in delivering the measurements can become a major upset since the staircase won’t serve you diligently or even fail to fit. In addition, most made-to measure staircases are built from soft wood thus they don’t guarantee you of durability.

Bespoke staircases

Bespoke staircases are usually created by the architect or bespoke specialist and then actualized by a specialist company. This means that the home owner can get designs that meet their requirements and that will perfectly fit in their homes. However, bespoke staircases require a considerable amount of resources to achieve but you can rest assured of value for your money.
