Combine the coziness of carpet with the premium appearance of stained wood by installing the 8011 False Starting Step. The gentle curve of this starting step provides an elegant transition and a natural location for turned newels with volute fittings or a box newel with a large base. Get the best of both worlds with customized False Starting Steps, made just for you.
- Use with Carpeted Stairs
- Rounded End
Each side of the stairway that does not attach to a wall requires a decorative Rounded End to accommodate a newel. To determine if a Left or Right Returned False Starting Step is required, stand at the bottom of the stairway and look up. If the right side is exposed, then you need a Right Returned False Starting Step. If the left side is exposed, then you need a Left Returned False Starting Step. A False Starting Step can also be placed on each side of a starting step to form a Double Returned End design.

Clear Finish & Stain Information
StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For Starting Steps, we offer both clear finishes and stains. Select a clear finish if you want to draw out the natural beauty and colors of the wood. If you prefer deeper, richer tones, our custom-mixed stains are the ideal choice for your Starting Steps.
All tread materials and products that are used underfoot are finished with a Conversion Varnish. Strong and resilient, this varnish is standard in the hardwood flooring industry. Our team of experts apply this specialty product onto each stair tread using a spray applicator for even, flawless coverage to protect your treads against heavy wear and tear.
Wood Grain & Color Variation
At StairSupplies™ we believe that natural wood colors and visual textures add character to our products. With that in mind, we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural variation of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSupplies™, you acknowledge that you are receiving a uniquely crafted product and there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.
