The term “floating stair” is another name for a free standing stair or a self-supporting stair. Essentially a floating or free standing stair means you can see under or over the staircase. There are no walls obstructing the view in, around, or under the staircase. Floating stairs can be designed in nearly any style from an ultra-modern interpretation to a very traditional colonial design. If you want to make a particular area of a home or business a focal point such as a view of a beautifully landscaped yard or a specialized room with unique features, a floating stair is ideal because you can “see through it” and appreciate the backdrop.
Material Considerations for Floating Stairs
There really are no limitations regarding which materials can be used for a floating staircase design. All materials that can be used in a traditional supported staircase can be used for floating stairs; they just need to be engineered appropriately to exclude the walls around the staircase.
Floating Stairs Are Ideal for Residential as well as Commercial Projects.
In our experience at Great Lakes Stair, we have designed and built a wide variety of floating stairs for both residential homes as well as commercial and business settings. All it takes is a creative vision and unique design to integrate a floating staircase into a residential or business space.
