With block sizes becoming smaller, double and even triple story homes are becoming the norm – and with them, timber stairs are a must! However, whilst they serve an undisputed function, interior and exterior stairs can be a feature piece that creates a sense of style throughout the home.
For a refined and powerful presence, closed timber stairs are a classic look that can be used in almost any home. The create a feeling of permanence and stability.
Floating stairs are an incredibly attractive way make any space look like a modern masterpiece. To complete the look, natural timber is a must.
If the stairs will retain a natural or stained finish (rather than carpeted) then hardwood flooring is a must! Let the knots, grains and colours speak for themselves – choose a timber that complements your flooring for a cohesive look. Tasmanian Oak and Victorian Ash are incredibly popular, whilst Spotted Gum and Blackbutt are two of the most sort after materials for any project!
If you’re looking for a way to keep costs down when building timber stairs, then consider MDF, treated pine or even plywood for your treads and risers. This is a good choice if you plan on covering the steps with carpet, as you can use a timber purely for its ease of use and low price.
