If light and space are something you wish to increase, or do you want a modern, minimalistic look? Then open tread stairs are a must-have, giving you maximum light and view. The vertical section of the steps – known as the risers – have been left out, leaving an open space between each tread.
The minimalist ‘floating’ effect that is created in your open staircase design – and the fact that floor space is freed up below – brings a sense of openness and volume to a room. Because of that, the open-tread staircase has become something of a design statement and a feature of many contemporary and modern homes.
