Step Up Your Stair Game: Designing the Perfect Staircase with Schumacher Homes

When it comes to designing and building your dream home, every detail matters. From the layout of the rooms to the choice of materials, each decision contributes to the overall aesthetic and functionality of your living space. One often overlooked element that can make a significant impact on the overall design is the staircase. Schumacher Homes understands the importance of a well-designed staircase and offers a range of options to help you step up your stair game.

Each section of a staircase can be customized to help meet any design goals you may have. Schumacher Homes recognizes that every homeowner has unique preferences and desires when it comes to their staircase. Whether you envision a classic, traditional staircase or a more modern and contemporary design, they have the expertise to bring your vision to life.

Your first step is to choose what style fits your home best. Schumacher Homes offers a variety of styles to choose from, including traditional, transitional, and modern. Each style has its own unique characteristics and can be tailored to match your home’s overall aesthetic.

Once you’ve chosen your style, it’s time to decide on additional design-focused details that will elevate your staircase to the next level. From the shape and size of the balusters to the design of the newel posts, every element of your staircase can be customized to suit your preferences and enhance your home’s overall aesthetic.


Balusters, also known as spindles or pickets, are the vertical posts that support the handrail of a staircase. Schumacher Homes offers a wide range of baluster options, from traditional wood balusters to more contemporary metal designs. If you choose a wooden option, you can customize even further with staining or painting. You can choose a style that complements your home’s interior and reflects your personal taste.

Newel Posts:

Another important component of the staircase is the newel posts. These larger, more prominent posts are typically found at the bottom and top of the staircase, as well as at any intermediate landings. Schumacher Homes offers a variety of newel post designs, including ornate and decorative options for a more traditional look, or sleek and minimalist designs for a modern aesthetic.


The handrail is the horizontal railing that runs along the length of the staircase, providing support and stability as you ascend or descend. It can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and glass, and can be customized to suit your style and preferences. You can choose a handrail that not only complements the overall style of your staircase but also fits comfortably in your hand for a secure grip.


When it comes to the steps themselves, or treads, Schumacher Homes offers a variety of materials to choose from. Whether you prefer the warmth and beauty of hardwood or the durability and low maintenance of engineered materials, they have options to suit your needs. You can select the perfect tread material that complements your home’s interior design and withstands the test of time.


The riser is the vertical portion of each step that connects one tread to the next. It can be left open or covered with a decorative material to match the treads, creating a seamless and cohesive look.

Included in all our builds is traditional carpeted steps that cover the full length of the staircase. If carpet is not in your vision, you can do fully wood steps with stained treads and painted risers to match the other staircase elements.
