Design Stair Treads

Updated:2013-08-23 16:17:05
A stair tread does not have to be hidden by carpet. It does not have to be a plain plank of wood. In fact, a stair tread can be designed to be more visual than the basic practical function it serves -- as the flat support to step on up a flight of stairs. A stair tread has the potential to be so much more. All that is needed is a little research and imagination to see a stair tread as a design feature in order to enhance the look of a staircase.

Instructions as follows:

                                                            

Firstly, gather images of various staircases to research different styles of stair treads. Go on the Internet to search for images or look in architecture or home-style magazines. Pay close attention to how stair treads are designed, so that you can see how such a practical feature can be so different in design.

Secondly, look also towards other sources for design ideas. For instance, gather material to create textural patterns by doing a series of rubbings of curious textures around you. Do this by taking a piece of paper, place it over an interesting texture, and with a pencil or piece of charcoal, rub over the paper to reveal a textured pattern. Put them aside for later.
Thirdly, measure the length, width and depth dimensions of the old staircase treads with a tape measure. Note the measurements down on to a piece of paper, next to quick diagrams of each stair tread up the staircase. Depending on the staircase structure, not all stair treads will share the same dimensions.
Fourthly, open your sketchbook. Draw the shape of each stair tread on each run of the staircase, using a pencil. This is the basic design shape to start designing your stair treads in your stone garden.
