Making a decision…Stairs!

The stairs have probably been our most difficult decision so far. We have shared some ideas and looked at so many Instagram and pinterest pics! And now we need to make a’s all starting to feel real

As we are going to go with a parquet wood floor and microcement walls in the hallway we have decided to go with a precast concrete stair and wooden treads. I love wood against concrete, its definitely a timeless look and we are keen to get the “bones” of the build right first time

Similar to the above look with the treads in a l shape or simply sitting on top of the concrete as below

I do like the above treads but Andy would rather see more of the concrete

We didn’t really think about the shape of the concrete stair until now, so many little details to think about aren’t they?! We do like the step shape below….

Or there is this as an option below where you have the best of both (!) This one will be determined by cost really, as we don’t mind either look

And now for balustrades, we do like something quite simple, the two pics below are contenders. This will depend on whether a hand rail is required so this one is still up in the air but very close!

More decisions to come!
