Five inventive ways you can use glass in your staircase

How to use glass in your staircase –

Are you struggling with a dark and dingy hallway? Maybe you’re looking to transform an out of date staircase but are unsure where to start. Whatever your motivation, it’s true that glass is a great way to create an attractive focal point in a home, without reducing practicality. But knowing how to go about it can be tricky, which is why here at The Glass Warehouse – we do all the hard work for you.

Experts in bespoke glass, we pride ourselves on our industry-leading technology, which allows us to provide our customers with the finest glass applications.

If you’re stuck for inspiration, here are five ways you can implement glass into your staircase to create a striking centrepiece. Whether you live in a 3-storey house or a studio apartment, we’re sure there will be something here for every type of home.

Frameless glass railings

Incorporating a frameless glass railing to a staircase is an effective way of utilising space. Perfect if you don’t have much room to play with, it allows the same level of security without taking up as much space – plus it looks great!

Floor to ceiling safety panels

If you really want to make a lasting impression with your staircase, we suggest using transparent floor to ceiling safety panels. This effortlessly enlarges a space, allows natural light to filter through and puts more emphasis on surrounding décor.

To make the most out of this type of glass balustrade for stairs, we suggest implementing some other decorative features such as a patterned wallpaper or a decorative hanging light shade to illuminate the area and improve the overall aesthetic.

Stainless steel and glass combination

A popular choice in both commercial buildings and contemporary homes, stainless steel and glass fittings make the perfect combination for sleek, trendy interiors.

Using steel clamps to hold the glass panels up, you can create a suspended appearance that is both functional and attractive.

Framed glass balustrades

Ideal for modern interiors, framed glass balustrades are easy to keep clean, are strong and durable and offer a secure solution to your home.

You can choose from a range of materials, but stainless steel is a popular framing choice as it is stylish and low maintenance.

Glass staircase with backlighting

A great way to brighten up an area, adding backlighting to your glass staircase can increase brightness, and also looks great both day and night.

If you want a more subtle glow, you could opt for frosted glass, perfect for a cosy homely feel.

I’ve just replaced my wooden staircase balustrades with toughened glass. I used Express Toughening to supply the 10mm thick glass panels. The company is very professional and helpful. The project went well.
