Ideas Marble Staircase – Treads & Risers

Arabescato marble staircase

This natural stone staircase was made with Arabescato marble, the finish is hoend with a slight non-slip finish and a straight edge marble tread.

We have also inserted visible white non-slip strips to increase the safety of the staircase and prevent accidental slipping as well as being easy to clean and long-lasting, widely used in Italy especially for public and very busy places.

Treads and risers were then fixed to the underlying concrete structure.

Calacatta marble staircase

A splendid staircase in Calacatta polished marble, the veins perfectly match the relatives and the rest of the environment.

Also in this case, golden adhesive tapes were applied to the beginning of the tread to increase safety and prevent slipping.

An environment immersed in white could only be created with white marble, the lights entering the room further increase the beauty of this marble staircase.

Carrara marble staircase

This Carrara marble staircase has been combined with wooden flooring, perhaps a way to stay with a modern yet vintage style.

The marble treads have the so-called “half-nose” finish (consisting of the slight rounding of the edge in the middle of the thickness), an elegant and modern style especially requested in Northern Europe, and subsequently followed by a small step to separate it from the riser in marble.
