Case Studies - Black stained white oak open riser staircase.

REF: 35172-verma

3D Model;


Black Stained White Oak Open Rise Staircase.

This staircase was supplied to a property in Slough.
The stairs are made entirely from white oak and features glass on glass clamps.

Wishing to achieve a modern look, the customer finished this staircase using a black satin finish that stained the oak black. 

Open riser staircases such as this one have to have the risers partially closed off in order to comply with building regulations (no more than a 99mm gap).

Customer Feedback

We went for a full American Oak Staircase. The design and exact specification took some time, and the design team were patient with me. As soon as we saw it you could see the solid oak, and the top quality workmanship. After lots of research, we decided to stain the oak black satin finish. The finished product is amazing, you can see the oak grain and it looks stunning in black. The glass balustrade also adds an open and contemporary feel. Everyone who has entered our house, notices the staircase right away - it looks expensive and very good quality! Many thanks to the team at TK stairs, we absolutely love our new staircase! - Mr Verma

Styles & Materials

Construction Methods:

All layouts of staircases can be constructed in different ways which will effect the final finish, these include:

  • Open riser construction; this is where the risers are left open with either a timber strip or metal bar built in to comply to regulations.
  • Cut string construction; where the sides of the strings are cut away so the treads can be seen, this can either be done in a modern or traditional way.


The materials used on your staircase will have a dramatic effect on how they look, most stairs will use the following materials.

  • Pine; all our stairs are manufactured from high quality furniture grade pine, we do not use any whitewood.
  • White Oak; we can manufacture all or part(s) of your staircase from premium White Oak, to give that stunning finish.
  • Glass; we offer stairs with glass balustrade, either as small panels or large panels, secured with brackets or by embedding with a groove.
