Want To Float? Choose Thick Treads

Want To Float? Choose Thick Treads

Floating and open staircases create a modern look that has become popular with homeowners in the last few years. The look evokes a minimalistic feel to the staircase which stands out because of its lack of structure.

Traditional staircases feature elaborate railings and newel posts to draw the focus. In the open stairways, the thick treads are the centerpiece. Whether cantilevered from the wall or enclosed with a simple railing, the open staircase is all about the tread. Selecting the right tread is important. Most designs call for thick treads. A more substantial tread gives more of a contrast to the openness.

At Stair Supplies, we are the industry leader in manufacturing thick treads. We carry top quality treads at a variety of thicknesses. Our thick treads start at 1 ½-inch thick and increase to three inches in thickness. Every thick tread can be made with a hand scraped or smooth surface (distressed finish coming soon). Standard sizes are 11 1/4 inches deep by 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 or 72 inches wide. However, thick treads can easily be made in any custom size that you require.

Stair Supplies offers its thick stair treads in more than 20 wood species including red oak, American cherry and hickory. They also have nearly as many finishes to suit your taste and needs.
