Magnificent White Mint Honed Sandstone Staircase Project

This magnificent stone staircase was recently completed by Stoneworld

We have clad the staircase with White Mint Honed Sandstone to create a stunning feature in this house

The owners of this mansion have invested in a fabulous centrepiece for their home.  Initially, the staircase is a poured concrete structure, that is later clad in stone.  Stoneworld have been involved in the project to supply and install the stone cladding for the project.  The stone cladding transforms the staircase into a stunning feature.

How is a stone staircase made?

The poured concrete structure is initially digitally templated by Stoneworld.  Data taken from the scan is then used to create bespoke step treads and risers from the desired stone.  This stone is a very pure White Mint Honed Sandstone. Stoneworld’s specially selected stone, ensures constancy of colour with minimal variation in tone.  It gives a very classic look, akin to Portland stone or Moleanos Limestone, but is far more affordable.

Each stone step tread and riser is 1.8 metres wide, giving a truly elegant grandeur to this staircase.  The bottom tread is made even wider with the addition of half moon bull noses on each side. These are carved from solid sandstone.  This ensures the curve is perfect, supporting the spindles of the flourish at the end of the balustrade.

 

Each step tread is finished with a bull nose front edge and side edges.

On the landing we have added an edging strip which has a bull nose on the front exposed edge, and a pencil roll on the back edge, making a neat finish for carpets to butt up to.
