Stone Down, Stone Up, Carpet In The Middle?
So you have glorious natural stone floors in your main entry. Maybe travertine, maybe granite, maybe slate. I don’t know, its your house, right? And of course, for some continuity, you also have the glorious stone upstairs. But here is your problem.
A bare staircase in the middle. Stone upstairs, stone downstairs, but in the end you don’t really want that carpet in the middle. So what do you do? Well, if you are ordering in volume, by the container, most factories can actually make stair treads and risers to meet your requirements. These treads are basically a 3cm thick slab of stone, cut to the dimensions of your stairs. That would finish things off pretty nicely don’t you think? If you are not buying in volume, there is a good chance that you can get some fabricated locally. One word of caution, it will be more expensive and the stone may not match exactly.
If you are in the South East and just about to build a staircase, check out the “Stair Kit In A Box” from Southern Staircase. Might be a way to save yourself considerable time and energy.
