For the most part, stairs need to be a specific dimension to be solid, safe and visually appealing. Where you can play a little bit is with your selection of balusters and spindles (sometimes called ‘pickets’). These are the vertical post-like parts of a handrail or guardrail on a stair or floor opening. Like stair boards, both balusters and spindles have an important structural role to play in railing system construction, but they can also define a staircase and any space where there is line of sight to it. Wood or metal. Simple or ornate. The type of baluster and spindle is up to you and what statement you want to make. Whichever style you choose, Triforest Floors has you covered.
