  2. Material Procurement: Depending on the materials chosen and their availability, sourcing high-quality timber or bespoke elements can extend the timeline by several weeks.
  3. Crafting Components: Manufacturing the bespoke elements of your staircase is a meticulous process, typically taking anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks. This stage is crucial as it determines the uniqueness and quality of your staircase.
  4. Site Preparation: Preparing the site for installation can take a few days to a couple of weeks, especially if it involves removing an existing staircase or significant structural alterations.
  5. Installation: The actual installation of the staircase can range from a couple of days to a week, depending on the complexity of the design and the intricacy of the installation.
  6. Finishing Touches: After the staircase is installed, additional time is needed for finishing touches such as varnishing, painting, and final inspections. This can take an additional week.

On average, the process from design to completion for a bespoke staircase in Edinburgh can take anywhere from 10 to 16 weeks. However, factors such as the complexity of the design, workload, and unforeseen challenges with older buildings can affect this timeframe.
