    Default Deck Stair Width


    I am thinking about remodeling my existing deck. My deck is 20ft X 21ft and it is 3ft high. I would like to have an opening to the garden which was closed by the railing. So I would like to build stairs with the width of 8ft in order to go from my deck directly into my garden. I searched the web for any maximum deck stairs width but I could not find any information. I know the minimum is 36". Can you give me some ideas?

    Default Re: Deck Stair Width

    There is no "maximum" width, build what balances the size of the deck to the rest of the garden. An 8' wide stair sounds about right. If you want to get creative, you can make the top step wider than the following steps which will draw the eye down the steps and away from the deck, reducing the visual mass of the deck and steps.
