Riser Type

Open Risers

open riser staircase refers to staircases where there is an open vertical space between each step. This style of staircase is airy rather than enclosed and offers unobstructed views through the treads into your space.

Closed Risers

Closed risers are the standard type of stairs, mainly a staple in older and more traditional homes. A riser between every tread closes a gap in each step. This prevents you from seeing what’s underneath or between the steps.
