There are endless material options for a cantilever staircase, including the main steel construction, meaning your staircase can be broken down into individual elements. One of the most popular and contemporary styles is incorporating glass balustrades, stainless steel handrails along with timber treads. This material combination increases the light flow throughout the property with the open riser design combined with the glass balustrades. The timber treads of your choice can be matched with the existing floor to complement the property.
