A range of designs

During the process of installing your dream staircase, it is understandable to jump straight to the exciting part of working out the best design for your home before considering any logistics. With glass staircases from Abbott-Wade, we are able to bring you a wide range of designs that are sure to add a contemporary look to your living space. These include:

  • Frameless glassFor an ultra-modern, streamlined look, a pane of frameless glass acting as your balustrade could be the option for you. Style doesn’t compromise safety, so there’s no need to worry – these thickened glass panes provide the same strength as a traditional handrail.
  • Glass spindlesIf you want to make your staircase really unique, look no further than glass spindles. Great for creating a bright and spacious design.
  • Optiwhite low iron glass – A refreshing alternative to other types of glass, this pane variety  has a practically colourless cast, as opposed to green. This ensures that it works fantastically well with a white handrail, creating a ‘barely there’ look that maximises natural light and compliments any interior design thanks to its colourless design.

Ability to work with any material

The versatility of a glass staircase is one of the main reasons it has cemented its place in people’s minds as a contender for a contemporary home. Glass staircase panels combine perfectly with almost any material to create a truly personalised look.

For example, glass makes a smart addition to an oak wood staircase, bringing a more traditional staircase up to date. It also pairs well with stainless steel to create a wonderfully modern finish – take a look for yourself.
