Glass Staircases

At Design My Stairs we are experts in bespoke glass staircase design from base rails and newel posts to beautifully designed toughened glass panels and perfectly-finished oak handrails.

We all like to make a good first impression on people when they enter our home or workplace, or we simply want to open our front doors to a space that makes us smile when we arrive home or at work. With this in mind, many people spend a lot of time and effort creating a warm, welcoming hallway. But, although you can have the most beautifully decorated hallway, if it is dark, cramped, or has dated bannisters and newel posts, you will never create the wow factor you desire.

Glass stairs are the perfect solution to brighten up any space, transforming your stairs and living or workspace into a light, bright contemporary space to be proud of.

Glass stairs and glass balustrade panels are easy to install and can completely transform your entire home or workplace by creating a light, contemporary space that will wow visitors and create a space that you will love. Whereas traditional bannisters can enclose spaces and make them seem smaller and darker, glass stairs and glass balustrades allow natural light to flood into the space.

This not only brightens the entire house or office it also creates a contemporary feeling and makes the area appear larger — even in smaller homes or workplaces — without the need to extend or carry out extensive building works. A glass staircase provides an instant update to your home or workspace quickly and simply. With the right know-how, glass staircases are easy to install, and glass bannisters can be fitted quickly and with little disruption while creating sensational transformations to the feel and appearance of your home or office.

Design My Stairs is a family business based in the Wirral. We have a long history of providing high-quality staircase renovations throughout England and Wales. 

All our staircases are designed, handcrafted and fitted by our experienced craftsmen. 

Combining knowledge, passion and craftsmanship, we pride ourselves on making staircases the focal point of your home. 


Some people believe that glass stairs will not look right or cannot be installed in older properties either due to the structure of older buildings or they fear that the contemporary aesthetics of glass balustrades will clash with the character of older properties. This is not the case.

At Design My Stairs we offer bespoke glass staircase design to suit any home or setting. From a Georgian townhouse to a new-build modern duplex, glass staircases can create a contemporary feel while always remaining sympathetic to the character of the home or building. Our expert glass staircase designers work with our clients to design staircases to enhance and highlight the character of each individual space, to create light contemporary glass staircases that fit seamlessly into any setting.

Unlike some suppliers who only fit glass stairs, we also install glass, metal and wooden staircases, so we can offer bespoke glass, wooden or metal staircase solutions to suit your specific needs and setting. Our expert designers will always discuss every option with you and will only ever install glass balustrades in suitable settings and when they are the very best option.

Our bespoke glass staircase design and installation services cover every conceivable option — and there are many — to ensure that your glass stairs meet your needs and wishes in terms of safety, contemporary design, useability, and aesthetics. From base rails, through glass panels to newel posts and oak handrails, if desired, there is a plethora of options available to you at Design my Stairs.

Depending on your preference, setting and your budget, you can choose easy to install glass balustrade panels attached with glass clamps (glass bracket stairs) or fully embedded glass panels, which sit seamlessly within the base rails with no gaps. You may wish to opt for a sleek, glass banister or opt for oak handrails that can be natural or painted to match your décor.

You can also decide to simply replace part of your balustrade with toughened glass panels. For example, if your landing is dark or cramped, glass panels or a glass balustrade can transform the landing space into an airy, spacious area in your house. With Design My Stairs, you do not have to commit to all or nothing, we work with you to optimise the light, feeling of space and practicality of your glass staircase to provide the very best solution for you.

To ensure you have the glass staircase you dream of, we offer a wide range of options, which our staircase design expert will discuss with you after conducting a design survey.

Glass staircases are beneficial as they bring extra light into your home which makes the space look bigger and brighter. They are also easy to take care of, involve little maintenance and are extremely safe. Not only are glass staircases easy to manage and visually appealing, but they are also deemed to be the safest staircase for small children. Having a glass staircase in your home will modernise the space and give your home a contemporary feel.

Glass staircases are extremely safe and a great option to choose for your home. Having glass bannisters along your staircase is deemed to be one of the safest options for homes with small children and vulnerable people, as it is durable and secure. They are made with toughened glass panels which can be installed in a multitude of ways, making a barrier that fits seamlessly in your home. For both safety and a sleek finish, glass staircases are a great option for any home.

Glass staircases are made with toughened glass which ensures that the staircase is safe and durable. We have a variety of glass staircase options to suit everyone, ranging from glass bracket, embedded glass, balustrade, glass and oak, and cut string glass and oak staircases. Durability matches style when it comes to our glass staircases, and the glass used to create our elegant staircases is the most durable and best quality available.

Our glass staircases are installed and designed by our expert designers who first assess your home, discuss your personal needs and your design preferences. Our staircases are then designed and will be fitted in your home during a fast renovation process which should only take between 2-3 days. When designing your new staircase, we make sure to properly assess your space and will only install glass balustrades in suitable settings as well as ensure that it is the best option.

Unlike wooden staircases, glass doesn’t need to be stained or painted and requires less ongoing maintenance. The best way to clean glass staircases is by simply wiping them with a microfibre cloth with water and a small amount of washing up liquid. They are easy to clean, and any moisture doesn’t damage the toughened glass.

We recently had a new staircase fitted by Design My Stairs, the reason being to meet the latest building regulations which ensure that small children cannot get their heads stuck and also gave the property a modern appearance.The work excelled in all five areas, the tradesmen were extremely good at their job and new exactly what was needed, nothing was too much trouble. The work extended over three days and on each occasion the area was thoroughly cleaned and tools stored safely.There were one or two very minor snags which were rectified immediately.I have no hesitation in recommending Ian and his team if you need a professional staircase renovation.
