How to clad interior stairs with stone – with or without a ledge?
The staircase is poured and we want to cover it with natural stone. The staircase goes around a corner once.
Now we need to decide whether to install the treads and risers "flush" or let the treads protrude a bit.
Straight treads will have 25 cm when folded and 27 cm when overhanging. In the curve, logically, less on the inside.
My wife is a little afraid of heights, and possible first floor visitors are quite elderly.
How much, in your experience, does that 2 cm make up for feeling like you can use the stairs safely?
Just imagine how much support surface your shoe has at 25 cm. And when you go down the stairs. We have a semi-curved staircase, and when it moves fast, I go inside, and 10 cm is plenty.
In front of the house, however, I make full use of the 32cm where I often carry my shopping/pushchair.
