What are Stair Treads?

Stair treads are an essential component of any staircase and can elevate your home in the simplest of ways. They are the part of the staircase that you step on and are responsible for providing traction and stability while climbing up or down the stairs. Not only do they serve a functional purpose, but they can also be a beautiful addition to your home’s decor. At The Floor Shop, we offer a wide range of stair treads to suit any style and budget.

Stair treads are the horizontal surfaces that make up each step on a staircase. They are the parts of the stairs that people step on when going up or down. Stair treads come in a variety of materials, including hardwood, laminate, carpet, and vinyl. They can be purchased pre-cut and finished or can be custom-made to fit a specific staircase.

Ensuring that your stair treads are installed correctly is paramount for both safety and comfort. That’s why it’s important to trust professionals who excel in installation techniques such as our team at The Floor Shop. Not only will your stairs be secure, but they can also be improved aesthetically with decorative accents like edging, bullnoses, or inlays, adding both style and function to your staircase.
