Step Treads

Natural stone treads have multiple purposes. While they are designed to be used as treads on garden stairs or as stone doorsteps and thresholds, natural stone step treads can be used elsewhere too.

For example, this versatile natural stone product is suitable for capping, pool coping and framing purposes. In saying that, nothing says welcome to our home quite like a quality natural stone threshold. As such, most people also use natural stone treads to add cachets to their outdoor staircase or front doorsteps. If you have wooden floors inside, a plain coloured stone for your outdoor area will add a nice contrast between the two areas.

While stepping stones create a more playful, organic look for your garden path and outdoor steps, rectangular stone treads exude a sophisticated and sleek finish that suits more modern and symmetrically designed homes and gardens.

As varied as their purpose, stone step treads are available in flamed, exfoliated, honed, sawn, sandblasted, tumbled or acid-washed finishes. All of these give the stones a natural, timeless quality. When used as step treads, they can transform an external or internal stairway into a stunning architectural feature in your home.

If you like your home to have a unified and complimentary feel, we suggest selecting a stone threshold or tread that matches the style, colours and textures of your tiles, pavers, stepping stones or cobblestones. You’ll find that Armstone’s extensive range of stones will definitely match the natural stone treads of your choosing.

Our natural stone step treads and thresholds are available in varying lengths. We can also tailor the length of the step tread to minimise grout joints and suit your specific paving needs.

Stones are all made of different properties, so depending on where you will be installing them, the material you require for steps, treads and thresholds may differ. We recommend checking out the properties of the stone treads on this page . If you need help choosing the best material for a specific area, contact us here and we’ll be happy to help you.
