Stairway Parts Names

Staircases come in all different shapes and styles from simple, straight staircases to circular staircases designed to make a grand architectural statement.

Many types of materials are also used to build staircases - from traditional wood to more modern materials such as glass, tile and wire. Despite the number of design and material variations possible, the main parts of a staircase are fairly standard.

Most people are aware of some stair parts names such as the tread, riser, landing and handrail. But unless you are an architect or builder, you may not be familiar with staircase terminology such as baluster, stringer, volute, bullnose or newel post.
