Oak and Glass Staircase

The defined grain patterns and sturdiness of oak makes it the perfect material for both traditional and contemporary staircases, while clean white paint puts a modern twist on the classic style. The contrasting colour tones of an oak and white staircase complement each other magnificently, with the warmth of the oak appearing even more striking against the pristine brilliance of the white. You can then take this aesthetic a step further by incorporating glass into the balustrades to create a stylish white, oak, and glass staircase.

Many homeowners looking to change their old staircase opt for a combination of materials to ensure a truly unique design. Oak and glass staircases are proving to be so popular because you can benefit from the best of both materials by combining the two. There are so many diverse styles and choices available, it’s no surprise that these staircases are amongst our most sought-after designs. Check out our selections of both oak staircases and glass staircases to learn more about the benefits of each individual style, and more possible ways to combine them for a fresh look.


Glass, Oak, and White Staircases

For the pragmatists among us, the elegant white timber can feature in the ornate parts of the staircase such as the spindles, apron, and stringers, or simply in the base to contrast the balusters and handrail above. The handrail and newel cap, subject to wear and tear from passing hands, should be manufactured from hardwearing oak to resist scuffs and scratches. If you choose to incorporate glass balusters, this will elevate the stairway’s appearance in a simple yet elegant way, allowing the increased light flow to make the area feel more spacious.

All of our staircases are bespoke, so even with guidance from our team, the final combination will always be entirely in your hands. The expertise and knowledge of our experienced design and installation professionals will ensure that your oak and glass staircase is not only beautiful but also as durable as possible.

White Oak and Glass Staircase FAQs

Here at Abbott-Wade, we promise our customers the best value for money around. As we tailor our work around your bespoke requirements, we are unfortunately unable to provide specific base rates. While we can suggest a quote if you already have a fully realised staircase design, it’s likely for aspects to change following consultations with our team. Any upfront estimate without the full specifications of your final design may be inaccurate, and we wouldn’t want you to end up going over your budget.

This is why we prefer to work with customers on an individual basis to consider each specific request in full. We can then provide a well-rounded detailed quote for your oak and glass staircase without any additional hidden costs creeping up down the line. To get your FREE quote, make sure you speak to one of our team of experts today. We’ll gladly discuss your requirements so you can receive our competitively priced service and make your dream staircase a reality.

Bear in mind that the overall cost of your project will depend on many factors. For example, replacing an old stairway with an oak and white staircase will cost more than renovating an existing staircase due to the extra work required. Your choice of spindle or baluster materials and design will also affect the final bill, while the size, shape, and complexity of the staircase will determine installation costs. Bespoke staircases are, of course, more of an investment than an off-the-shelf solution, because we go the extra mile to ensure your new staircase is exactly how you want it to be.
The difficulty of the installation is dependent on the kind of staircase refurbishment that you’re looking for, whether it’s on a smaller scale or a dramatic change requiring more time and attention. By relying on the experts at Abbott-Wade, you’ll benefit from our many years of experience in the field of staircase renovation, as we make light work of any task brought our way! Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you feel like it’s time to change your long-standing stairs and make way for a brand new oak and glass staircase. We can work with you to ensure you see your required results quickly.

Staircase renovations work with the existing structure and simply replace components with your chosen new materials, which can be done in as little as 1 day. When it comes to total refurbishments and replacements, this is a longer process from start to finish, but it’s much simpler than you might imagine. We’ll invite you to consult with our experts on the best configurations of materials and balustrade styles to help you create a staircase that’s both a stylish and practical centrepiece.

Finalising the design is likely to be the most difficult part, as you’ll have so many possibilities to choose from. Once you’ve committed to your desired staircase style, we’ll get to work crafting the components for you. We’ll give you a suggested timeframe according to the amount of work we need to do. When it comes to building the staircase in your home, the installation itself is a straightforward process. The trained professionals at Abbott-Wade will work efficiently to complete your oak and white staircase as quickly as possible to minimise interruption to your daily life.
An oak and glass staircase is a thing of beauty, so it’s only natural that you’ll want to keep it looking its best. With this in mind, make sure that you’re taking all the necessary steps (pardon the pun) to keep your new staircase protected from potential damage. Wood varnish, oil, or wax can be used to keep your staircase looking pristine for a prolonged period, but be sure to do the necessary research on these kinds of products so you use the appropriate type.

Incredible aesthetics aside, oak and glass are extremely strong and durable materials with little maintenance required. However, staircases are high-traffic areas in every home, so you’ll need to put in a little effort to prevent excessive wear from all those feet. It’s a good idea to ban heeled shoes on the stairs, even if the treads are carpeted. You should be hoovering or brushing the stairs and wiping down the balustrades on a regular basis as part of your home cleaning routine, but never use cleaning products with bleach or harsh chemicals.

Frequent foot traffic will eventually wear down protective varnish topcoats, so it’s advisable to re-apply a protective substance at least once a year. The best long-term preservative is a clear varnish, which protects the wood against knocks and stains. It also makes it easier to wipe clean. Additionally, you could apply a wood oil periodically and polish with a layer of wax to make your staircase look glossy and new. Regular TLC will keep your oak and white staircase in the best possible shape for years to come.
