Cut String - Wooden Staircases

Cut string wooden staircases  are a popular choice in homes and buildings in Ireland for their sleek and modern aesthetic. These staircases are characterized by the absence of a solid risers, or vertical boards, between the treads, or horizontal boards that make up the steps. Instead, the treads are supported by a series of cut stringers, or diagonal beams, that run along the sides of the staircase and are visible from the side.

One of the benefits of cut string staircases is their ability to create the illusion of more space in a room. The open risers allow light to pass through the staircase, making the area feel more open and airy. This can be especially useful in smaller homes or buildings where every square foot counts.

Cut string staircases can also be a great design feature, as they can be customized with different materials, finishes, and handrail styles to suit the overall look and feel of the space. For example, a cut string staircase with glass panels in the risers can add a modern and minimalistic touch to a home, while a cut string staircase with traditional wooden handrails and treads can add warmth and character to a more classic space.

In terms of construction, cut string staircases can be made using a variety of materials. Wooden cut string staircases are particularly popular in Ireland due to the country’s rich tradition of woodworking and carpentry. These staircases can be made using a range of wood species, such as oak, ash, and beech, each with its own unique grain patterns and coloration.

Overall, cut string wooden staircases are a beautiful and functional addition to any home or building in Ireland. Whether you’re looking to add a modern touch to your space or bring some warmth and character to your home, a cut string staircase can be a great choice.
