Designing with Wood Treads

Wood is an element we typically do not work with when designing our custom railings and staircases, but we have utilized wood in our designs before to create custom wood treads with open or closed risers! Choosing the right color stain for your wood treads is one detail you do not want to overlook in your design. Choosing the right type of stain will create the look you desire and bring your overall design into fruition. Whether you are matching color stain or creating contrasting elements, the possibilities are endless.

Wood Treads with Open Risers

Cantilevered staircase designs are most popular when wood treads are desired. These type of staircases are a perfect choice for creating a modern or contemporary ambiance to any space. Cantilevered staircases are anchored to one side by a steel frame. The steel frame is later covered with either open or closed riser wood treads, creating the illusion of a floating staircase. Choosing your staircase to have open riser wood treads can assist in creating an open and airy ambiance.

Wood Treads with Closed Risers

When designing your staircase, one design detail that can drastically change the overall look of your staircase is choosing wood treads with closed risers. Choosing closed riser wood treads creates a unique zigzag effect, giving the illusion of a floating staircase. Closed riser wood treads add an unexpected elegance to any staircase design. Whether you are trying to create a modern look or an industrial style, it can be achieved by simply choosing your wood treads with closed risers.
