Add Style to a Modern Interior with Glass Panel Stairs

Monday 28th September, 2015

If you’re looking to add a modern, luxury touch to the home, glass panel stairs are an ideal option. They are currently the number one choice for modern homeowners looking to add a unique style to the home without spending a fortune. There are many reasons why glass stairs are the perfect investment and below you’ll discover the top benefits to expect.

Providing innovative style at competitive prices

One of the best things about glass for stairs is the fact it provides such an innovative style. There are many design possibilities, ensuring you end up with a look that perfectly fits your home. If you’re looking for the ultimate stylish design, consider wood and glass stairs. The wood contrasts beautifully with the glass, creating a welcoming, homely feel. You can choose from various wooden finishes, with dark wood creating a more formal and elegant design. Lighter wood is better suited to country style homes.

You can even create the illusion of floating glass stairs if you have glass balustrades installed too. If you are planning on adding glass balustrades, you may need to pay attention to safety regulations. Always look at local restrictions placed upon glass stairs before you have them built. If you break any regulations your nice new glass staircase will need to be torn down.

One thing that you may be wary about is the cost. While glass panel stairs will never be truly classified as ‘budget’ stairs, it is possible to find competitive prices. The cost isn’t the only thing you should pay attention to. Your focus should be on quality and safety. Choosing a reliable company is essential if you want to guarantee the safest, best quality results.

Maximising light and space

Other benefits that come when you install glass for stairs include the illusion of additional space and added light. If your home is quite small, glass stairs can really help to make it appear slightly bigger. They reflect the light really well too which helps to brighten up your living space.

The glass panel stairs will become a focal point in the home so it’s important you take your time to choose the right ones to fit your existing décor.

Pay attention to additional features

When choosing glass panel stairs, be sure to take into account any additional features you may want. For example, you can buy self cleaning glass. This would come in really useful for those who don’t want to waste time cleaning the stairs on a regular basis. While glass for stairs can have excellent aesthetic benefits, it can also show up finger prints and other marks quite easily. They may be easy to clean, but it can make life even easier if you choose self cleaning glass stair panels. Toughened glass is another option you have if you want to make them safer.

Overall glass for stairs is one of the leading materials you can use to create a modern finish. Why not take a look at your options to see which ones best suit your home?
