If you’re looking to revamp your hallway with an aesthetically appealing and robust new staircase, then look no further than a polished stainless steel staircase. As visually striking as they are durable, it’s unsurprising that many people are turning away from traditional wooden balustrades in favour of this material.

Why stainless steel staircases are a popular choice

There are several benefits to installing polished stainless steel staircases, making them an increasingly popular choice with both home and business owners.

Polished stainless steel staircases are extremely versatile

We can design bespoke metal staircases in a variety of shapes and sizes, as steel is such a versatile material. So, whether you’d like a simple, elegant, modern, or sleek vibe, we’ll work with you to create a polished stainless steel staircase that’s in keeping with your style.

Steel handrails can also be paired with other design materials, such as wood or glass to create unique and stunning looks.

Polished stainless steel staircases require minimal maintenance

Polished stainless steel handrails or spindles require hardly any maintenance. Unlike wooden staircases, metal stairs don’t need painting, sealing, or varnishing to keep their outstanding appearance.

Polished stainless steel staircases are incredibly durable

Metal staircases, such as those made from polished stainless steel, are built to stand the test of time. They are extremely resistant to temperature and humidity fluctuations, and won’t warp, as can sometimes be the case with wooden staircases.

Polished stainless steel staircases are so robust that they can be used outdoors as well as indoors – withstanding wind and rain.

Stainless steel staircase design ideas

Glass and chrome, whether polished or brushed, adds a clean and modern style which can be softened by the warmer tones of oak. A further bespoke twist could involve using one of our special stains such as the black Wenge stained oak – photographed below.

With a trailblazing and highly specific design brief, this new flight pairs bewitching black stained oak with pristine stainless steel baluster posts and rails, to house our 10mm toughened glass. In this example, combining oak, steel and glass delivered an ultra-modern staircase, leaving mediocrity far behind.

All new open-tread staircases are now required by law to use downstands to reduce the gap between treads, lowering the risk of accidents. Our stylish solution of using glass in our open-tread staircases enhances style and light flow, rather than compromising them – just take a look at the photographs below.

Polished Stainless Steel Staircase FAQs

How to maintain your polished stainless steel staircase

Polished stainless steel staircases are so popular in part due to their ease of maintenance. To keep your indoor polished stainless steel staircases in optimum condition, we recommend using a soft brush to remove any dirt and debris.

Next, use a sponge dipped in a solution of warm water and washing up liquid to wipe away any sticky fingerprints. If any soapy residue remains, simply rinse it away using clean water.

If you’re considering updating your current stairs, or replacing them entirely with a brand new polished stainless steel staircase, talk to the experts here at Abbott Wade.

What’s the difference between brushed and polished stainless steel staircases?

At Abbott-Wade, we offer both brushed stainless steel and polished stainless steel staircases.

The difference between the two is that brushed stainless steel features a distinctive matte satin sheen, whereas our polished stainless steel staircases are shiny and reflective.

Polished steel staircases are brushed and buffed to a mirror-like finish. They have greater resistance to corrosion than brushed steel staircases, and are easier to clean.

Whether you prefer the high-shine appearance of polished steel staircases, or the muted finish of brushed steel, we guarantee you will be thrilled with the result.

Which staircase styles work best with polished stainless steel balustrades?

Polished stainless steel balustrades pair beautifully with many different materials. The style you choose will depend on the look you want to achieve.

We recommend browsing our gallery of previous polished steel staircase installations, pictured on this page, for inspiration.

Below are some suggestions for ways to incorporate polished stainless steel into your staircase.

  • Polished stainless steel staircase with glass

Glass panels look stunning when paired with polished stainless steel handrails. Choose matching steel brackets for a cohesive appearance.

Whilst glass allows light to flow through your home, steel reflects it, making your staircase feel more open and spacious.

  • Oak, glass, and polished stainless steel staircase

Steel and glass can sometimes feel a little clinical or office-like. If this isn’t the look you’re aiming for, you may wish to combine wood, glass, and steel to update your staircase.

Oak, in particular, can bring warmth and colour to your staircase design. Many customers opt for an oak handrail with glass panels and steel clamps. Alternatively, you could choose to alternate oak and steel spindles to add contrast.

  • White and polished stainless steel staircase

Incorporating painted white wood into your polished stainless steel staircase can achieve a clean and modern look. Add glass panels with steel brackets for a bright and spacious feel.

  • Polished stainless steel staircase spindles

Available in a variety of designs, our polished stainless steel staircase spindles are sure to make a statement.
