What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to White Chic Done Right
White paired with beautiful wood always offers a starkly beautiful combination. The sculpture adds texture and movement without disrupting the color scheme.
Consistency. Even more important, the ratio of rise to run must be consistent. If you stumble or trip on a staircase, it is probably due to a tread or riser that is not the same size as the others. Our bodies get in a rhythm when climbing or descending, and even an inch of difference can be enough to throw us off. If you are thinking about adding flooring on top of existing flooring where it meets a staircase, keep this in mind. The treads may need to be adjusted as well. Another thing that makes a stair comfortable to use is a tread overhang. Although some modern staircases omit this detail, an overhang will keep heels from scuffing risers on the way down and help you find your footing on the way up.
