There are many different styles that can be chosen when designing your staircase. The style of your staircase pertains to more of the era or design look that you are trying to achieve in the interior styling of your home.
Custom Stairways are constructed with non-standard parts to achieve individual design requirements that allows for their residences to be labeled anything but a cookie cutter home. Stock parts can be used to achieve this look if combined in the right fashion. With a custom stair we also have the option of using
various wood species not only stock Red Oak parts. We try to stay away from stair parts that can be found at your local home centers.
Designer Stairways usually use high-end components and mediums to achieve a single design that is very unique. Normally a combination of multiple components that individually may not seem like much but when combined correctly result in a stunning affect.
If your home design is contemporary on the outside, you will want to continue this on the inside. Contemporary Stairways have well defined lines and make a crisp clean statement. A contemporary design can have clean lightly colored Maple materials with accenting high contrast highlights. Combining
different materials works well in a contemporary setting. Whether your home contains high-end stainless or the warm Bamboo materials we can design a stair that will fit your needs.
Like the Contemporary stair, Modern Stairways have clean lines. Like the example in the picture link a modern stair can be made of warm Walnut materials and other dark woods. If designed with the correct materials it can even fit within a traditional motif.
Luxury Stairways can be a free flowing design made up of any design style that fits with the theme of the home. They are normally slightly wider in width and designed with higher end or exotic materials.
When clients think of Traditional Stairways their conception is normally an all wood stair project. Traditionally this is true. The picture linked to this section is an example of a traditional staircase design that is currently popular. The square newels and painted balusters and risers are a classic look. The
stain grade material can be varied to complement or match the flooring or other wood species being used within your home.
Glass Stairways normally refer to the glass panel rail sections. The top rail can be wood, metal or other material desired by the customer. In the past we have used standard glass, colored and low ironed glass to achieve the clearest look. Some clients have chosen to have the glass etched. This option makes
their stair clearly a one of a kind. Although not as common, glass treads are also available.
Our customers have requested many designs of Glass Rail Systems. From the most common tempered glass panels to the tightly bent laminated panels. These systems can have top rails on them or no top rails to be used as a barrier on an interior or exterior balcony. We have also installed these glass barriers as
windshields/wind breaks on exterior decks and balconies.
All Wood Stairways can be very traditional in design to ultra contemporary. The wood staircase pictured in this link is a very custom design using Enkoboll posts and moldings along with our design of a custom turned balustrade. The railing shown in the picture is a historic reproduction from the1800’s. If
your stair is of a more standard design we have a line of stock components that may fit your needs and budget. These stock products are also available in multiple species of wood to achieve a more custom look. Additionally, combining different mediums to make up Wood and Metal Stairways is a fun challenge.
