Starting Steps

Is your staircase boring or extraordinary? Nothing dresses up a stairway like a starting step. These beautiful curving steps invite you to enter your grand staircase.

When choosing your starting step it is important to know which newel post you intend to mount on it. The standard sized starting step is usually used with an over the post balustrade system and most often utilizes a volute.
