    Thanks so much. It looks totally different in this pic than on BM's color gallery site, so good to know. Do you know the color of the trim it's matched with?

Where did the newel posts come from, species of wood and stain color?

    This is a typical winder. That just means that the stairs are continuous and are wedge shaped as they make the turn. There is nothing difficult about construction. They are built to code and maintain the same rise height for every step. They are a good solution to turning steps in a shorter configuration, Just as it is fine to do a winding staircase from top to bottom, you can add winders where a landing may have been considered to shorten the full run.

    All stairs have at least two landings top and bottom, sometimes there are some intermediate landings

    These are walnut...but red oak floors could stain pretty close to this color and tone, just know that more grain will show.

    Oak & Broad
    Agreed. A similar stain is available from most of the large providers. The difference will be in the grain and figure but most people wont know the difference anyway.

    Many companies carry iron ballasters and their parts. These are standard in almost every line.

    I think you are asking about the newel posts? They would be 8" in width and since a handrail is at 36" I would say that they are probably 40" tall. Or the horizontal hand hewn post... which is probably a 12". Or the hand hewn wrapped underside if the balcony...14". Or do you mean the white painted ceiling beams...they are 1x12 Hbeams... So probably 13 1/2" x 11. 3/4"

    All of the millwork in the house was china white. Light plays with color from surface to surface.

Is that a bead board on the walls?

    These are from budget blinds/ woven woods. They make them in a vertical application for sliders if you are interested, or you can use these and mount them above the door.

    The full depth from the wall, including the turn of the winder is 7.5" Then the full length of the turn, again including the winder, is 6.3"

    If this were a straight run it would have taken 10'8" to accomplish. I hope that helps :)

    The grain of walnut is kind of unique, and so the only other wood that I can think of that would be kind of similar in grain is alder. BUT you can stain white oak, birch, hickory and many other species this stain color. It is a warm brown and your contractor should be able to make up a sample on another wood species for you. Maple is about the only wood that I can think of that would not take this dark of a stain very well~ it is too hard and even with wetting to open up the grain, it would be blotchy.

    Thank you so much! I appreciate your suggestions :)

    This was a prefinished wood product so I am not sure of the exact board width, but would estimate that is was around 4" wide planking.

    Nothing as an exact science~ sorry, IF youhow this photo to a paint specialist in your area they should be able to use your species of wood and show you colorings that will look like this.

What type of wood is on the tread of the stairs? Thank you?

  • Theresa Sabella

    can you tell me how wide/long each stair tread is?

    I would guess that it is a 36" staircase. The rise is typically 8" and the run 10" by code.

How big is the loft area? Is there more than just the small landing?

    The upper loft area "bumps" into the bedroom behind that wall with the sconce on it. There is approx 66" of space from the back wall to the railing~ enough for a daybed and a bookshelf. There are two bedrooms and a small bathroom in the upper floor.

    The upper hall bumps back into one of two bedrooms in the loft area. What you see with the daybed is 60" deep ( the window seat and the cabinet occupy this area). There is a small vestibule at the top of the stairs with two quaint bedrooms and a tiny powder room.

    The stain was customized on site. Begin with a walnut stain and add expresso tones until the desired depth of color is achieved with your wood species.
