There are many different types of staircases, so why should you choose a glass staircase over any other type?
Windsor Bespoke receive staircase enquiries on a weekly basis and more than often, customers will end up going with a glass staircase rather than timber handrail/balustrade.
A glass staircase is incredibly versatile and when teamed with oak base and handrails can work perfectly in with any décor. Whether you’re trying to achieve a modern design or a more traditional style, they can achieve this with great ease
Why Choose A Glass Staircase?
If you have smaller space to work with, a glass staircase will give the illusion of extra space, especially if you choose clear glass panels.
Glass Staircases are usually installed much easier, quicker and simpler compared to that of a normal staircase. Glass panels, in a glass staircase, usually attach using brackets. In some instances, the base and handrails will feature a groove which enables the panels to slot in.
Toughened glass balustrades used in glass staircases are incredibly strong and durable. Due to this strength and durability, a glass staircase needs little maintenance and should last for years to come. They are also easier to clean than wood staircases.
Probably the youngest of the three most popular staircase building materials (wood and metal being the others), toughened glass was only developed in the early 1900s.
Now a highly popular, versatile and durable option, it’s possible to create a wide variety of staircase components from toughened glass – from balustrade infill to risers to small decorations.
