Nine unique staircases that take these homes to the next level

Faulkner Construction is a second-generation family business and we are passionate about crafting exceptional homes. This "building pride" is reflected in every detail of the houses we design and build - and staircases are no exception.

Staircases often go beyond mere functionality to become an integral part of a home's architecture and aesthetic, providing a canvas for our expertise and - if we're honest - a welcome opportunity to obsess over the "devils in the detail".

Here's a glimpse of some of our favourite staircase projects that showcase our love for unique designs, sustainability, and craftsmanship.
