Fixed stairs to the attic

Straight staircase

A straight staircase to the attic is easier to place than a spiral staircase. Because a straight staircase can be placed quickly and easily, our professional will need much less time for this than with a spiral staircase and that difference will be visible on your invoice. Prices for a straight staircase start from €1,500.

Lower or top quarter staircase

Is it not possible to place a straight staircase in your house or do you just want a bottom or top quarter staircase? Then plan a budget from €2,000 for the installation of your new stairs.


Double-quarter staircase

A double-quarter staircase is a staircase that turns 90 degrees twice. This is exactly why the installation of this staircase is quite complex and time-consuming. A fixed staircase to the attic in the form of a double-quarter staircase is possible from €2,500.


What influences the price

It goes without saying that the calculation of the final price for your fixed staircase to the attic does not stop with the choice of the type of staircase. Other elements such as materials, decoration and dimensions also have their share in the final price of your staircase to the attic.

1) Size of the staircase

A larger staircase will cost you more, of course. A standard staircase consists of 14 steps, but this depends of course on the length of the steps and the height of your staircase. Are you not satisfied with a standard staircase or is it not possible in your house to place a standard staircase to the attic? Then you will have to deal with different dimensions and this will involve an additional price.

2) Open or closed staircase

For both a straight and a spiral staircase you can choose between an open or a closed staircase. The overview below shows the advantages and disadvantages of both options:

Open staircase

Advantages: makes the room look bigger, cheaper than a closed staircase
Disadvantages: a lot of heat loss, less safe than a closed staircase

Closed staircase

Advantages: less heat loss (and thus lower energy bills), elegant look, possibility of storage cupboard/storage space under the stairs
Disadvantages: more expensive than an open staircase, less spacious

3) Materials

For the installation of a fixed staircase to your attic you can choose from different materials. An oak staircase is more expensive than a carpeted one but has a beautiful, natural look. Usually the following materials are used to build a staircase to the attic:
