The image above displays the correct angles and measurements (by code) for a series of steps

There is an actual legal code - a right and wrong way - to construct a staircase? Well… have you ever walked up or down a flight of stairs that seems to be out of proportion, you aren’t quite sure if you should be taking one or two steps on each landing? i.e. Wrong for today’s standards. Actually, older constructed stairs are completely different in measurements and angles than today’s construction and some of those staircases that you have been ‘stumbling’ up and down on may just not have been up to date by today’s codes.

A staircase (stairway, stairwell, or flight of stairs) is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance (floors in a home or building) by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps.

A step is composed of a tread and a riser


The tread is the part of the stairway that is stepped on. It is constructed to the same specifications (thickness) as any other flooring. The tread "depth" is measured from the outer edge of the step to the vertical "riser" between steps. The "width" is measured from one side to the other.

The riser is the vertical portion between each tread on the stair. This may be missing for an "open" stair effect.


There are as many (plus more) styles of staircases as there are Design StylesAnd since I am a Traditionalist when it comes to my own home style… I thought I would share a few Traditional Staircase images…
