Glass, Oak, and White Staircases
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 our staircases are bespoke, so whilst our team are happy to provide their expert guidance, the final appearance 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.
Investing in an innovative oak and white staircase is sure to brighten your home and make travelling between floors a breeze. If you decide to go for this gorgeous oak and glass staircase, you’ll be the recipient of a high-quality service from our staircase experts. We’ve spent many years creating stunning staircase designs in homes up and down the country.
What are glass stair panels?
Glass stair panels are a modern way of connecting the base of your staircase to the handrail, providing an attractive and contemporary alternative to traditional wooden spindles.
When you think of stair panels, the boxed-in look of the 1960s may spring to mind. However, those stair panels were usually constructed from wood, which entirely blocked the flow of light. This resulted in dark stairways (often decorated with ghastly wallpaper) that looked even smaller than they were.
Abbott Wade supply beautiful contemporary glass stair panels, which, unlike the wooden stair panels of yesteryear, increase the flow of light in your home and make your hallways appear larger.
Whilst glass stair panels can be installed without a handrail for a minimalistic effect, we think they look their best when paired with a beautiful oak handrail.
Glass stair panels combined with an oak and white staircase can add a classic touch with a modern twist to any home, regardless of its style and age.
At Abbott-Wade, we specialise in manufacturing and installing glass staircases, so we’re definitely the people to call if a glass panelled oak and white staircase piques your interest. Our professional team skilfully tackles all jobs swiftly and efficiently without ever compromising on quality.
Why our clients love our oak and glass staircases
Making the change from old-fashioned wooden spindles to a stylish oak and glass staircase isn’t solely an aesthetic choice. Whilst it’s definitely the case that oak and glass staircases look extremely elegant and can give your hallway an instant facelift, there are also more pragmatic reasons for choosing a staircase with an oak and glass finish.
Wooden spindles are famous for being dust traps. Not to mention that painting them can be a real chore. Oak and glass staircases, on the other hand, require only minimal maintenance. In fact, a regular wipe down is sufficient to keep them looking as good as new for many years. As there is nowhere for dust and pet hair to get trapped, your stairway will look and feel much cleaner – and brighter!

Are glass and oak staircases safe?
Safety concerns can be a key reason why people are hesitant to install glass and oak staircases in their homes. However, our glass staircase panels are manufactured from specially toughened glass, which is extremely durable and 100% safe.
For those customers with young children or pets, we advise opting for a close-fit solid glass staircase with oak handrail for extra peace of mind. This design ensures that there will be no gaps for little limbs, heads (or paws) to become trapped.
Our skilled installation team can even precision cut the glass to the shape of your stair treads, guaranteeing an exact fit. This means that you can choose to have a lighter, more spacious feel to your home, by having a modern glass staircase with oak handrail installed, without compromising on safety.
All our glass staircase panels are made from 10mm toughened Pilkington glass. This ensures that your glass balustrade will not only look spectacular but will be strong enough to last for decades.
