What is a cantilevered or floating staircase?
Floating staircases are a popular design stair in which the treads are fixed to a wall without visible stringers. This makes the treads appear to float , hence the name. At their most basic, you will have nothing more than staircase treads – literally coming out of the wall. With a typically floating staircase, you attach the treads to a wall which is done by driving the treads into it, or using a bracket to give the staircase treads support .
