Starting Steps

Staircase starting steps

The step at the bottom of a staircase is normally a little larger than the rest and is called a starter or starting step. Starting steps come in a number of shapes and sizes depending on their function.

The most commonly found wood starter steps are called half-round steps. One or both ends are in the shape of a half circle in order to support and anchor a newel post, which in turn provides stability and support for the entire railing.

The other common starter steps are quarter-rounds and are most often used at the bottom of a stairway that extends around the end of a wall, such as is often the case with basement stairs.
