Glass Balustrade Staircase

High-quality glass staircase renovations can lift the whole room, allowing light to flow freely without obstruction from spindles or any other balustrade panels that would otherwise block one’s view. Our glass balustrades are made of natural oak newel posts and handrails with panels of glass. 

Glass panels or glass balustrades can transform any landing into an airy, spacious area in your home. For example, if you have dark and cramped spaces for footsteps on stairs they will be brightened with these materials.

Can Glass Balustrade Staircases Be Installed In Any Home?

The aesthetics of glass stairs have been a hot topic in recent years. Some people worry that they will not look right or can’t be installed in older properties because the structure is different for each building, but this isnt true at all. 

We can help you form your staircase idea, and then turn that into the perfect staircase design for your home and personal style. Additionally, we are the only company that can offer you a bespoke staircase to suit your needs. Whether it’s glass, metal or wooden we will create an installation tailored specifically for what is required in terms of design and setting.

Glass balustrade panels come in two styles, depending on your preference for style and budget. You can choose easy installation with glass clamps or a fully embedded design that seamlessly goes into the base of stairs without any gaps left visible behind its placement. 

For something, more sleek look consider our bannisters made from real oak wood finished naturally colour-matched materials which will match well against most home décor themes while still being modern enough not to clash. 

Benefits Of Glass Balustrade Staircases

The recommended size of the gaps between balustrades are around 10-20mm. This ensures that the gap is not a danger to young children and the barriers are as safe as possible. Leaving a small gap also allows the glass to expand and contract with the changes in weather throughout the year.

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 long-lasting. Durability matches style when it comes to our glass staircases, and the glass used to create our elegant staircases is the most resistant 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.
