  • Sometimes known as cantilevered stairs or suspended stairs, are a contemporary and visually striking architectural feature in modern interior design. They are characterized by treads that appear to "float" without visible support underneath. Also known as open-riser stairs or cantilevered stairs, create a visually striking and modern design by appearing to "float" without traditional risers.

Types of Floating Stairs


Cantilevered Floating Stairs

These stairs are supported on only one side, typically anchored to a wall or a beam. The treads extend outward from the supporting structure, creating a visually open space underneath.


Mono-stringer Floating Stairs

In this design, a single, central stringer or spine supports the treads. The stringer is often hidden or minimalistic, enhancing the appearance of the floating effect.


Suspended Floating Stairs

These stairs are hung from above, usually by steel cables or rods attached to the ceiling or an overhead structure. This design creates a sense of weightlessness as the treads seem to be suspended in mid-air.


Glass Floating Stairs

Glass is often used as the material for the treads in floating stairs, providing a sleek and minimalist look. The transparency of the glass enhances the floating effect and allows light to pass through, brightening the space.


Wooden Floating Stairs

Wooden treads offer a warm and natural aesthetic to floating stairs. They can be constructed using various types of wood, finishes, and designs to complement different interior styles.


Concrete Floating Stairs

Concrete is another popular material choice for floating stairs, especially in contemporary and industrial-style interiors. It offers durability and can be molded into various shapes and designs.


Combination Floating Stairs

Some floating stair designs incorporate a combination of materials such as wood, glass, and metal for a unique and customized look. These combinations can be tailored to suit specific aesthetic preferences and design requirements.
