One of the benefits of living in the greater Salt Lake City area is that we get a little bit of
everything. We get all four seasons of weather (sometimes in the same month), we get to know
people from all over the world, and most of all, we live near so many different landscapes and environments. We have an ever-growing urban downtown area, a big empty desert out west, majestic forest-covered mountains to the east, a booming technology industry to the south, and the list goes on and on.

Our point here is that no matter what your style is, you can find what you are looking for in Salt Lake City. We think this means you deserve a custom staircase that matches your style of preference. Maybe you want the elegance of an ornate traditional staircase, or perhaps a more modern staircase with its no-fuss, straight, clean lines is more your style. No matter what type of staircase you’re looking for, talking to a custom stair contractor is a great first step to obtaining that perfect addition to your home. Until then, we hope this helps get you thinking.

Traditional Staircases

Traditional staircases are beautiful and elegant. These classic works resemble European
staircases from the 1700s and 1800s. These staircases are built to radiate balance, symmetry, and a high degree of ornate detail. When building a traditional styled custom staircase you’ll usually use wood but there is also an option for iron spindles. You have many options when it comes to what kind of stair treads you should use but dark stained woods, with or without a classic carpet runner, can make these staircases look stunning. The great thing about these beautiful staircases is the ease with which you can add a truly personal touch. For example, you can add hand carved or even monogrammed elements to customize the staircase and make it your own. Elements like additions of glass or different balusters can make your traditional staircase even more beautiful and personal.


Mountain Staircases

If your style is more country and mountain majesty than it is classic elegance then a mountain staircase could be just right for you. This style produces beautiful staircases that boast natural elements that reflect more earthy tones. Stone, warm woods, and unique spindles make up the design of these breathtaking staircases. This style embraces the natural textures and grains of wood. Checking (the natural splitting of wood as it dries) can also be very desirable. There are seemingly endless options when it comes to the
unique expressions you find in the mountain style staircases.

Salt Lake City Custom Staircases
Contemporary Staircases

Contemporary staircases refer to a wide array of design elements that were developed in the second half of the 20th century. These more modern styles have the flexibility to do whatever you want them to. They can be bold statements with unique shapes and materials. Or they can be masterfully blended into the background of the room. Quite often this design is perceived to be “easier & less costly” because it comes across as being simple. However because of its more clean lines, exact reveals, and tight tolerances this is not the case. Greater percussion results in greater labor costs. This is where having an expert in staircase design will help you take the design in your head, put it on paper, and implement it into your home.


In all honesty, the best way to find the right staircase for you is to talk to a professional. Even
better would be to have them come to your home to view the space and where you can explain just what you’re looking for. Working together as a team you will be able to understand options and capabilities and they will be able to determine and create exactly what you’re looking for.
