When it comes to renovating or redecorating a property, one of the most overlooked areas of the home is more often than not the staircase despite it usually being the first thing you see when you walk through the door and despite it being one of the most used parts of a home. Here at Abbott-Wade, we challenge this by providing gorgeous staircase renovations to homes the length and breadth of the country.
Staircases are generally a carpeted or basic wooden design but in recent years, the use of glass to create more bespoke flights has become increasingly popular. We have been an industry leader in staircase changes since our establishment and we can provide countless glass staircase options to suit any property of any age or style. Our work, which now totals a period of more than twenty years, has seen us grow into one of the UK’s premier staircase companies and front-runner for the design, supply and installation of glass staircases.
Glass Staircase Benefits
Our glass staircases are not made completely from glass they simply include glass in the design to replace other materials. By replacing the balustrading or handrail for embedded glass can modernise your entire hallway. You will benefit from an increased feeling of elegance when you enter your home and see a new, contemporary staircase right before your eyes.
As well as this glass staircase panels allow you to see the room in full without the obstructed views that wooden or steel balustrading and handrails provide. See natural light beam through the room as you brighten areas of your home that were previously dull or in shadow. An additional benefit a glass staircase creates is that they can make it feel as though the room is a lot bigger than it is therefore also making it seem like you have more space than you do.
Additionally, while glass may seem a fragile material to use for something such as a staircase you can rest in the knowledge that Abbott-Wade glass staircase panels are manufactured with 10mm toughened Pilkington glass. This ensures our customers have a stunning, yet secure and strong glass flight of stairs in their home. For completely new flights of stairs, we can also offer 15mm frameless glass staircase panels.
Glass Staircase Styles
As mentioned earlier in this post, our embedded glass staircase panel can be used in place of more classic staircase materials and it is just one of the many design options we have that incorporate glass. A glass panel is placed between the handrail and baserail without the need for brackets and creating an open, light feeling in your hallway.
Another popular style is our white staircases which use prefinished white wood in combination with glass panels to create an ultra-modern, sleek, clean design. When paired with contemporary décor, this style of staircase can give a completely modern feel to your entire hallway, transforming your home in the process. Use embedded or clamped panels to create a design that perfectly suits your needs.
Our exceptional glass components allow you to produce a bespoke glass staircase that perfectly suits your needs and that can match or compliment the current décor in your home. You can begin the process of receiving an Abbott-Wade glass staircase by arranging a home consultation with our team of experienced designers. They can show you material samples and advise you on the designs which could work best in your home. Then once you are in full agreement on the design of your new glass staircase our work begins.
