  • Straight stairs: As the term suggests, straight stairs are created in a straight line and are the most common type of stairs in commercial and residential buildings. A landing may be inserted so that the flight is broken. They are easy to walk up and down and easy to build as well. Handrails and railings are usually inserted for support.

  • L-shaped stairs: L-shaped stairs, like straight stairs, bend at some point, typically after the landing. The bend often features a 90-degree turn. This type can be custom stairs in Tampa, are visually pleasing, and frequently serve as a visual barrier between two floors.

  • Winder stairs: Winder or circular stairs are a variation of L-shaped stairs and are a great option for custom stairs in Tampa. They do not have a flat landing but may have triangular steps or pie-shaped steps instead. If you don’t have a lot of room in your home or office, this is a wonderful option to pick. Compared to other types of stairs, they are far more visually appealing and have a smooth transition at the corner.

  • U-shaped stairs: U-shaped stairs are usually easy to fit into construction designs. They are two parallel flights of stairs, and when thought about visually, have a fairly large landing at which they are joined. Once you reach the landing after the first flight of stairs, there is a 180-degree turn and you will have to walk up the next flight to the next floor.

  • Spiral stairs: Spiral stairs are quite common and follow a helical arc design. They are compact and are usually built around a pole in the middle. Since they are compact and visually appealing, they are useful to use on front decks and patios. There may be plenty of railing, designs, and styles that may change the appearance of the stairs. This is where custom stair designing in Tampa comes into play.

  • Cantilever: Cantilever stairs have the appearance that they are floating in the air and do not have any support. This is because the stair stringer is usually attached to one end and maybe either hidden or kept exposed. They are stylish, and when they are built on one side of the wall, they save space yet create a spacious add open design to the room. It is usually more expensive to build cantilever stairs compared to other types, but this type gives ample room for custom stairs in Tampa.

Which Material is Best for Stairs?

Once you have decided on the type of custom stairs in Tampa for your home or commercial space, the next question will be what material to choose. While there are many options today, some of the most common ones are listed below.

  • Vinyl: Vinyl planks are also known as LVP or luxury vinyl planks. They look great and have an aesthetically pleasing look, but they are also budget-friendly and versatile. Vinyl flooring can be made to look like metal, stone, wood, or any other customization. It is also stain-resistant and waterproof. Vinyl stairs may last from 10 to 25 years when maintained and can be cleaned with a vacuum. However, when walked on they can be quite noisy.

  • Carpet stairs: Carpet is usually the safest option when it comes to custom stairs in Tampa. Shorter hair fibers are relatively more durable than longer hair fibers and feel soft and comfortable when you walk on them. Since it is non-slippery, it is safer than other types of flooring for stairs. Carpet is available in almost any type of pattern and color.

However, the disadvantages are that carpet traps, dirt, moisture, stains, and odors, and needs regular cleaning and maintenance.

  • Decorative tiles: If you opt for custom stairs in Tampa, another unique option would be to choose tiles, which come in different patterns, colors, and textures to suit almost any budget. Ceramic tiles are more durable than glass or porcelain. They are non-allergenic and easy to clean. Tiles are relatively quite durable, but are quite heavy, and may not be installed everywhere. You would also need a good contractor for the job because installing tiles requires specialized machinery and tools.

  • Hardwood stairs: Hardwood stairs are a great option to beautify the look of your home or commercial space. It is very elegant and very long-lasting as long as it is cleaned and maintained regularly. Keep in mind that hardwood can be slippery when it is wet.
