The Beauty of Tile and Stone

Looking to update the look of a staircase and create aesthetic appeal between floors? Tile staircase designs, whether on stair treads or stair risers, create a glamorous and unique style in your home. Check our gallery of ideas from our Tile Stairs & Staircases Pinterest board for design inspirations!

Natural Stone Risers   Both ceramic and stone tile can be installed over stairways constructed of concrete, steel, and wood. Here are some ideas for using tile on both stair treads and stair risers.

Tile for Stair Treads

Natural stone makes for elegant, modern staircase designs. Since no two natural stone patterns are alike, this is a great choice for those wanting a sleek, one-of-a-kind staircase. Granite and marble are versatile stones, with uses beyond the kitchen, and are beautiful to use on stair treads (the part of the stairs that are stepped on). Limestone is another stylish option.

Tile for Stair Risers

While stair treads with natural stone add an element of class to a staircase, tile on the stair risers (the part of a staircase that separates steps from one another) provides a charming effect.

Posa 2 from our Cementine Series Using tile on stair risers is a wonderful way to incorporate your individual style and personality into your interior design. With a plethora of gorgeous tile patterns and styles available, your design choices are truly unlimited.

Cotto Flora from our Cotto Series When designing staircases with tile, it’s important to consider safety. Since tile stair treads can become slippery, using tile only on stair risers may be your best option if you have small children or elderly people living with you.

Mosaic Staircases
