Staircase renovation ideas

The staircase is arguably the most important part of a multi storey building, so making sure it is the perfect fit for your preferences is a must! The most common reasons behind the urge for a staircase renovation is if a home owner has recently moved into a new residency, and wants to switch up an old staircase that is not of their taste. Or perhaps you have lived in the same place for a while and want to turn your staircase into something more contemporary. Regardless of the motives behind your staircase redesign, it is always an exciting process that can bring your ideal staircase design ideas to the fore.

Here at Abbott-Wade, we have been providing happy customers with renovations for many years now, so we thought we would share some of our favourites with you so you can perhaps incorporate them into your own staircase design in the future.

Sandblasted glass renovation

Sick and tired of looking at that old, stale staircase that is in dire need of a makeover? Glass staircases are right on trend at the moment, as they are becoming a go to option in many modern homes. Their ability to allow the flow of natural light throughout a building is what has made them so popular, allowing you to benefit from a much brighter space.

But if you’re still feeling a little attached to your existing wooden staircase, let us take over and combine the two! We can install a frosted glass balustrade to replace your existing wooden spindles, so you will be able to keep the handrail and create a smart looking staircase as a result.
