Open Risers

Open riser are very popular due to their transparency and versatility, they can be built to suit a variety of styles, especially in confined spaces or terrace houses. In addition to their minimalism and modern appearance, they also provide a unique aesthetic, creating an elegant and open atmosphere.

The most obvious advantage of an open riser is their transparency to let in more natural light than a closed riser does. Open riser stairs allow you to look through the stairs, giving an illusion of extra space. This is beneficial for keeping tight spots, such as hallways or small rooms well lit.

Closed Risers

Closed riser stairs are popular in traditional homes. Aside from their versatility, they also boast a variety of benefits. The solid risers are a practical choice as you are able to customise them in many ways and they come in a wide variety of options. You are able to easily carpet them for a quieter, softer stair. If you are looking to make use of additional space, underneath can be fully or partially enclosed, making great storage spaces for things like school bags, shoes, or the vacuum cleaner.

Closed risers prevent you from seeing what is between the steps or underneath them. It is common for them to have a whole timber riser in between each tread to indicate the space between each step is closed, improving the stability of each step, reducing the risk of slipping and falling. This is ideal for a family with young children since the solid portions between the steps prevent accidents.

We are able to provide you multiple options and solutions when it comes to closed risers. Whether it’s a study nook, additional shelving, or a wine cellar, we are able to customise to fit your needs.
