Modern Stairs
& Railing Styles

Modern stairs aren’t one size fits all. Southern Staircase works with you to understand your vision as well as the space you are working with. With decades of experience in designing and building modern stair systems we are a valuable resource for knowledge and modern stairs ideas.

Steel Mono Stringer Stair

A mono beam or stringer stair system is a floating staircase that is supported by a single steel stringer. It is an open rise design and can be paired with numerous tread types. Railing options include glass, horizontal metal, and cable. The Mono Beam stair system can be configured in multiple fashions, including straight, L-shaped, Switchback or U-shaped.

Dual Cut Stringer Stair

Like the mono beam floating stair, the dual beam stair is just as popular and is widely requested by many of the custom builders and architects we work with. Supported by dual stringers, glass, cable, and horizontal metal handrail systems work well to complete the modern look. Choose from multiple tread types to accent your dual beam stair system. Configurations can vary depending on your vision and space.

Dual Closed Stringer Stair

This stair is another popular option for contemporary homes. Like the Dual Cut Stringer, the Dual Closed Stringer Stair is Open Riser, but it’s treads are closed in by the stringers on each side. This stair works well with all modern handrails and custom treads in your choice of wood species can complete the overall look.

Cantilever Stairs

Cantilever stairs are the pinnacle when it comes to modern stairs. This type of stair system is constructed to have the treads appear to be floating in air without any support from stringers or beams. Our expert team expertly engineer and design cantilever stairs to fit and complement your space. Cantilever stairs pair well with glass railing or cable railing and can really help accentuate a home and add visual interest. Choose custom treads to really highlight this architectural masterpiece.

Curved Stairs

Who says curved stairs must be traditional? You can have floating stairs that are curved too. At Southern Staircase we don’t limit what floating stairs can be, but we do utilize decades of experience and industry knowledge to bring your vision to reality. Choose glass railing to really exude luxury with this type of modern stair system.

There is no one size fits all modern or floating stairs. Modern stairs for your home should be custom to your home. Do you have an idea in mind?
