Cantilevered or floating stairs, from S & A Stairs , as some designers call them are a suitable example of their design philosophy. This staircase and staircases like these are treated as a work of art. To achieve a result such as this requires workmanship of the high standards.

The open riser construction with the floating 60mm laminated Victorian Ash treads is visually good. The simply glass work and uprights add to the modern piece of art in this corner of the home. In this case the treads have been cantilevered half the width of the flight this allows for the enclosed area under the stair to be used as valuable storage space.
