These style of contemporary stairs include pre-made treads of either wood, concrete, acrylic or metal installed on a wall and are often supported by railings. They seem suspended and often give the illusion of walking on air. Additionally, their minimalistic design can add oomph to any space either indoors or outdoors.

Advantages of Cantilever Stairs

Apart from giving a modern touch to your house, cantilever stairs have a number of advantages over traditional staircases. These include:

    • Affordability:

Cantilever stairs are the preferred choice for most homeowners as they are cost-effective in terms of material, installation and upkeep.

    • Many options to choose from:

They can be constructed in a number of materials of your choice including glass, timber, metal or concrete to match your home aesthetics.

    • Easy installation:

Unlike traditional staircases, cantilever stairs can be installed simultaneously while other construction or remodeling work is being done.

Cantilever stairs are beautiful to look at and can also be installed outdoors to transform your pool area into an outdoor retreat or give it a spa-like feel.

Besides, they also have levitating treads in various materials to provide maximum bang for your buck with minimum effort and maintenance.
