ASCEND & DESCEND UNDER THE RADAR
When your staircase adjoins a wall, making the transition as smooth as possible tends to be the goal of most homeowners. This is where concealed stairs come in the stringer is hidden underneath the treads and risers, allowing them to butt right up to the plaster.
There are two ways to design concealed stairs in the GTA. The first is to place one side up against a wall; the other side of the stairs will feature a balustrade. The second is to place the stairs between two walls, creating an enclosed stairwell.
It is possible for a concealed stairs design to be open (meaning that there is a gap between the treads) or closed (meaning that there is a riser between the treads) depending on the overall look you're going for.
