Inspiration to Evoke Creativity

Every great project starts with some inspiration. Whether it's a client's vision, architectural influences, or a design challenge, finding an idea that resonates helps set the stage for what's to come. At Input Joinery, we work closely with you to understand your aspirations and translate them into tangible designs that exceed your expectations.

Design and Concept

Once your inspiration is awakened, it's time to transform your idea into a reality. Whether your dream staircase is a closed string or a staircase with glass balustrade by collaborating with our in-house design team, architects, and craftsmen, we can conceptualise the staircase layout, materials, and overall aesthetic. From initial sketches to detailed blueprints, precision in design ensures a staircase that not only looks stunning but also functions flawlessly within your space.

Material Selection

Timber is the cornerstone of custom staircases and choosing the right type of wood is crucial. With a wide range of timber options available, each with its own unique characteristics, we can guide you in selecting the perfect wood to match your style and durability requirements. Whether it's the warmth of oak, the richness of mahogany, or the modern appeal of maple, the choice of timber defines the staircase's personality and longevity.

Crafted with Precision

Craftsmanship is at the heart of creating bespoke timber staircases. Our skilled team meticulously work to bring the design to life, blending traditional woodworking techniques with modern technology. From cutting and shaping the timber to assembling intricate joinery, attention to detail ensures a cohesive and structurally sound staircase that stands as a timeless masterpiece in your home.


With the staircase crafted to perfection, installation requires careful planning and execution to ensure a seamless fit into your space. Our skilled professionals handle the installation from start to finish, ensuring that the staircase is perfectly designed to fit into the space available. Our contracts manager will be in contact during the process to ensure the installation runs smoothly.

Sustainable Sourcing

We understand the importance of preserving our planet for future generations. That's why all the timber used in our staircases is sourced from sustainable forests, adhering to strict environmental standards. By prioritising responsible sourcing practices, we strive to minimise our ecological footprint while delivering exceptional quality products.

Moreover, our dedication extends beyond sustainability. We proudly bear the label of "Made in Britain," championing local craftsmanship and supporting our community. Every staircase we create is a testament to British ingenuity and precision, reflecting our unwavering commitment to quality and tradition.
