Inspiration for a transitional wooden staircase remodel in Boston

Rocky Ledge StairTransitional Staircase, Boston

We have gotten many questions about the stairs: They were custom designed and built in place by the builder - and are not available commercially. The entry doors were also custom made. The floors are constructed of a baked white oak surface-treated with an ebony analine dye. The stair handrails are painted black with a polyurethane top coat. Photo Credit: Sam Gray Photography

    Interesting. Thank you so much. I had heard just one negative comment from a bamboo owner, but I really don't know too many who have it. And, I hear you on the ease of maintenance. In the back of my mind with these black stairs, I just see dust bunnies! I appreciate the advice.

    Turnings Unlimited replicated these newels for me. They did a beautiful job and were wonderful to work with. They shipped them 500 miles to me, packed perfectly.

    The codes for baluster spacing are different from state to state. In California, the code spacing on a stair is 4 3/8" maximum between and 4" on a balcony or landing. In some cases you can use only 2 balusters per tread depending on width of the baluster and the run of your stairs. Keep in mind that even if the bottom of a baluster is 2" wide, if the top is tapered, the measurement between will be take there. While I did not work on the project pictured above, based on my experience, it looks like the spacing is at least at the 4 3/8" spacing or might be more. Not all photos you see on Houzz comply with every code from every jurisdiction.

            I used jet black by BM and my railing looks blue... any suggestions?
          • chadillac745

            tolandk - you can not mix paint to be black due to the fact the base they always start with is white ( i dont know why ben moore insist on trying to do so its impossible unless you start with a black base ) try Fine paints of Europe - Hollandlac or if you want a cheaper option sherwin williams - all surface enamel, those two selections come already black. this video may help you also...

                    The strength of a newel post can support the baluster at the bottom where the railing makes a turn.
