New Artemis Colours 2018

New Artemis Colours 2018

New colours for the Artemis Spiral Staircase announced for 2018

Exciting new colours have been announced for the Artemis spiral staircase range, available from July 2018.

The original 4 wood colours, Natural Beech, Light Oak, Walnut and Wenge have been revamped to give a lighter feel and more natural finish, closer to the real wood colours. The standard colours are available on a fast 3 to 4 week turnaround. The two most popular finishes – natural beech and oak stain, are unchanged from before which is great news! The Walnut (Noce) and Wenge stains are lighter and more vibrant than their previous versions. All wood components are beautifully hand-finished as before, with the same attention to detail and quality the Artemis is renowned for.

New Custom Colours

In addition a range of Custom Colours has been added, which extends the range and choice available.

The 9 new colours include:

  • Solid Black and White finishes, useful if you don’t want to see wood grain through the finish
  • New Ebony stain, dark and rich
  • Stone and Fumo stains, interesting variations on standard stains

New Custom colour range for the Artemis Spiral Staircase

The new colour options give you more choice of finishes than any other kit on the UK market, and more choice is a good thing!

Custom colours will take a bit longer than the standard colours, so you need to allow approximately 6 weeks for delivery. Prices are an additional 25% on the standard colour range.

The Artemis spiral staircase range is our premium product, designed and manufactured in Italy to our very high standards. It is ideal for high traffic areas in both domestic and commercial situations, due to its superior design and load-bearing capability.

Spiral Staircase colour options

Spiral Staircase colour options

This article covers the various Spiral staircase colour options available, which combinations are the most popular, and which product ranges give you the best choice of colour options.

Budget Spiral Staircase Kits

Generally the options for budget spirals like the Calgary are limited to Grey or White metalwork, with light natural coloured treads. The grey finish is a good choice for a neutral colour that will fit into most interior decors, the white finish gives a light bright staircase which is great for a bit of contrast, especially in a modern interior.

Mid-range Spiral Staircase Kits

When you get to the Mid-range spiral stairs you start to see a wider choice of colours. For example in the Gamia Deluxe range a choice of Dark Walnut for the treads and handrail is available, in addition to the Natural Beech colour.  Dark Walnut is a rich chocolate brown stain applied to beech treads and then sealed with clear varnish which is baked in an oven to harden it. The result is a hardwearing, fade-resistant satin finish which is robust enough to last many years of regular use. The metalwork can be ordered in silver-grey or black, so there are a potential 4 colour options you can choose from.

 

Premium Spiral Staircase Kits

With premium spiral staircase kits, the options and choices widen dramatically. For example, with the Artemis spiral staircase there are 3 standard ranges of metalwork colour – Charcoal Black, Silver Mist and Parchment White. You can match these up with your choice of standard wood stains, Natural Beech, Light Oak, Dark Walnut, and lastly, Wenge. Interestingly, fashion has moved on from the early ‘noughties’ when the most popular finish was Black with natural beech treads.

Nowadays, the most popular finishes we get asked for are:

  1. Grey with Oak stain
  2. White with Oak stain
  3. Grey with Dark Walnut stain
  4. White with Dark Walnut stain

The other colour option fast gaining ground is Wenge – imagine a very dark rich espresso colour, nearly but not quite black. It makes a striking contrast to a lighter coloured metal, we predict a bright (or dark!) future for Wenge as more people get to know about it!

Custom Spiral Stairs

Candy Apple red – let your imagination go wild?

If none of the standard colours satisfy your odd colour cravings, then maybe our custom stairs will help. Yes, we mainly sell custom stairs in the colours already mentioned, usually with a liberal sprinkling of stainless steel and glass, but there is nothing to stop you from having any colour you wish. In fact, we can supply the major components such as treads, balustrade, handrail, metalwork etc without any finish if you want, so you can apply the colours of your choice. Candy Apple Red staircase, anyone?
