Recently I completed a split level deck of approximately 6m x 6m. It steps down by slightly less than one normal step drop across its six metre span. It is finished in a combination of hardwood and redgum. The problem I have now is that no-one sees the step and everyone stumbles down it or even up it on occasion (myself included).
I am looking for suggestions on what to use to draw ones eye to the step. I have searched the hardware stores and the closest I can get to what I am looking for are some medium size bugle head screws which could be inserted along the piece of timber at the point of the step. However these are not the most attractive option.
I have noticed some public boardwalks/piers etc have used this method to effect however with better hardware.
Any ideas on what to use and where to source it?
