Of course not everyone can afford the expense and upheaval of ripping out a staircase to install a new one from scratch. But Nick Burborough of Zigzag Design studio, who is building a Gaudi-esque bridge to link two mezzanines in a house in Bibury, in Gloucestershire, says the weak economy, which has led to more people staying put rather than moving house, has resulted in more stair “facelifts”.


“It’s a big rising trend. More and more clients want to lift their stairs without the headache and financial hit of a complete replacement,” he says.
