There are some parts of stair and each of them has their own special function. One of them is the tread. It is horizontal surface that one walk on the stair. There are some materials that are used for this part. They can be steel, acrylic, timber, glass, wood, and some products of paneling and tiling. Stair treads are the main part of the stair because every eye will be dragged to them. Thus, they must be well designed and decorated.
Talking about stair treads design you need to understand that visual appearance is not the most important consideration. There is another more important idea to be paid attention to, i.e. safety. Make sure that you have the right material. For indoor stair, wood stair treads are excellent but they will not work as good as metal stair treads for outdoor stair because they have different durability. When you want to add tiles or panels on the tread, they must be also safety and correctly installed.
On the other hand, if your main concern is on the aesthetic look, you may consider glass stair treads. Commonly, not only the treads which are made of glass, but also the entire parts such as riser, going, nosing, fencing, etc. Glass is always perfect for contemporary home. However, glass stair is recommended for only indoor stair. It serves you with aesthetic appeal, transparency, and excellent decoration when it plays with some decorative lights.
In addition, you can also add some decorative items to create a better reborn stair. One of the more popular items is tread cover. Royal themed interior usually utilizes carpeted stair treads. The carpet can cover the treads and also the raises of the stair. Even, it can be extended for the hallway. Some other decoration style requires only carpeted stair treads or raises. You can add a surprising accent by giving different look for one of these horizontal or vertical parts of the stair. This is because carpet is varied in colors and patterns.
Another idea of stair treads decoration is by installing wooden panels. This idea is suitable for you who prefer having simple touch than displaying some colors and patterns. Wood panels offer natural accent for the home interior. It also creates warm ambiance. Some modern stairs combine wood treads and white raises and balusters. Some stylish stairs let the wooden treads floating without supporting raises. Working with glass fence, they offer a perfect look for contemporary interior.
