Traditional Stairs vs Classic Stairs: What is the difference?

S&A Stairs have been delivering top quality stairs for homes for almost 100 years. During this time, we have been able to help all our clients with their staircase requirements – both from a sense of style and practicality. Yet, throughout this time, we find ourselves being asked the same question: what is the difference between traditional and classic stairs? What defines them and what separates them? It is a question that we will endeavour to answer for you. Our explanation will hopefully make it simple for everyone to understand and also help you when the time comes to choose the perfect stair to fit your home.

The Differences

When it comes to defining the minor differences between the two sets of stair styles, the factor of a “period home” comes into the equation. Traditional stairs are created with a particular period style in mind, and example being stairs that were popular in the 1920’s. These stairs are made with this era in mind and are blended together with the style of your home to create the perfect match. They are meant to represent stairs from a traditional period of time.

Classic stairs, on the other hand, do not focus on a particular period of time. The approach, in this case, is to create a staircase with a timeless feel. There is an opportunity to blend together modern and traditional elements to create a stair that blends into your home’s style.
