Single Miter Return Stair Treads ( Left Miter -or- Right Miter )
Understanding Which Side Of The Stair Tread Is Mitered:
The biggest rule of thumb is to always view the staircase looking from the bottom up. So if your handrail is on the right hand side ( looking from the landing or first stair tread up the staircase ) then have a right hand open staircase. Thus, you need right miter stair treads!
Understanding The Sizing Of Single Miter Return Stair Treads:
It is very important to know that a installed miter return takes 1-1/2 inches away from the total length of the stair tread. A proper installed miter return is done by 45 degree cutting the stair treads front side edge that is needed to have the installed miter ( thus, the front bullnose itself is 100% untouched ). For Example: the fitting size of a 42 inch miter return tread is actually 40-1/2 inches. This means that if you want the tread to fit a opening of 41 inches or longer then you will have to buy a 48 inch miter return tread and then simply cut it down to the proper fitting size.
