Whether you’re building a multiple-storey home or remodelling your commercial space, consider investing in sturdy, modern, and beautifully-designed indoor stairs. A high-quality staircase provides safety and comfort. It also adds a bold statement to your overall interiors.
For customized stairs for your Toronto property, floating wood stairs may suit your taste and budget. Not only do they look sleek and stylish; the suspended design of a floating staircase with stainless steel glass railing offers more space for your home and office (if space savings is your priority).
When it comes to floating floor stairs, Capital Hardwood Flooring is the name you can trust. Our team customizes stairs and glass railings for residential and commercial projects. Let’s work together in bringing your ideas for modern stairs to life!
Floating Wood Stairs: What is It? What Are Its Benefits?
Also called self-supporting stairs, floating stairs have a suspended design to conceal their supporting structure. The staircase’s levitating appearance makes it look lighter than the common staircase design. You also have the option to install the stairs with or without hand stair railings.
Given its unique design, floating wood stairs in Toronto provide the following benefits:
- Spacious interiors
Does your home or office have an open floor plan? Installing a traditional staircase can obstruct the view from one room to another. As a result, indoor spaces may feel cramped or restricted. Floating stairs avoid this. On the other hand, floating staircases with glass railings can make a home or office look more spacious.
- Versatility and flexibility
Since they’re suspended, floating floor stairs are highly versatile. This makes it easier for you to explore various ways of installing them (e.g. straight, winding, spiral, or U-shaped), regardless of the size of your interiors.
- Additional storage space
With hidden support, floating stairs leave more space underneath for storage purposes. This is ideal for homeowners who want to utilize every inch of space in your home. If you have any ideas about what you want to do with this free space, just let our Toronto floating stairs designers know. We will customize your staircase according to your preferences.
- Bold and stunning modern aesthetic
Traditional staircases are often just a structure that helps you get to the second floor of your property and back. Floating stairs are different. Besides their primary role, they also add style to any interior. For homes or offices with an open floor plan, floating staircases emphasize breadth and breathing space.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT FLOATING STAIRS IN TORONTO
- Are floating stairs safe?
Yes, floating staircases are safe, especially for young children and pets. The gap between the riser is too small for a child or pet to fall through as the space between the balustrade does not exceed 100 mm.
Other stair safety elements include slip factor, tread strength, and the potential to fall through. At Capital Hardwood Flooring, we put the safety of our clients on top of our priorities. With our years of experience and wealth of expertise, we ensure that our floating stairs designs are constructed using superior quality materials. Our team strictly follows the building regulations, and we will work closely with your renovation company to ensure everything is correctly installed.
- Why do people float stairs?
Floating staircases with glass railings are perfect for small and light-constrained spaces. The glass railing and open treads enable you to see through the staircase, giving you an illusion of a bigger space. Also, the staircase design allows the light from the upstairs to get through an open staircase, providing enough light downstairs.
- Are floating stairs modern?
Floating stairs are increasingly becoming popular in open-concept spaces. With its modern, elegant, and innovative staircase design, the floating staircase has become a foundation for the interior staircase design of a modern house.
- How are floating stairs attached to the wall?
Each floating step comes with threaded bolts that are fixed directly to the wall using epoxy resin bolts or each floating step is carefully inserted into a stainless steel cantilever supporting frame. Other floating stairs are securely attached to the wall with brackets.
