Staircases do not merely provide a means to an end – they’re an essential focal point and centrepiece for homes all over the world. While many may feel they solely allow us to move from one floor to another, the right staircase solution can really add character and flair to a home that other fixtures and fittings fail to achieve. One of the most popular contemporary choices in staircase design and provision today is that of steel – particularly as they provide a unique look and functionality that can seamlessly blend with a range of décor choices and materials.
Steel is widely used in home fabrication for fittings such as balconies, balustrades and even art installations – but with the right contemporary look, it can even be incorporated as part of a stunning central staircase. From rails and balustrades to steps and internal structuring, steel is a powerful material both physically and visually – it’s popular for its clean look, its mirror properties and its sheer ease of maintenance. Steel is extraordinarily easy to clean and maintain, making it one of the longest-lasting materials we provide for staircase designs.
Steel can provide a timeless touch to a staircase that will weather the years to come – metallic touches have been a fairly niche, though sought-after part of the modern home aesthetic for some time now, particularly as they bring a sense of effortless luxury and glamour to any fixture and fitting. The notion of a steel staircase may not be too forthcoming, either – meaning that you are also considering a fairly unique approach to modern interior design. For a look that complements your home and helps you stand out from the crowd – in the best way possible – you can hardly go wrong by introducing a touch of steel into your staircase.
When used with soft woods and even glass, steel can be used to create a bespoke look that is generally unheard of in modern homes – and least those in the mainstream. The look, feel and colour of steel helps to keep things neutral while giving off a definite air of luxury – meaning that you are guaranteed to create a sublime look that’s all your own with a variety of different materials that you can introduce into the mix. For maximum transparency and the ultimate in clean, crisp looks, a staircase built from glass and steel is perfect – it’s a look that is largely used in commercial circumstances, but it’s catching on with homeowners who want to keep things crisp, clear and all while maximising natural light.

Steve did a top job with the stainless steel barrier. The work was so good that the boss, Ian, would like you to provide a quote for another other style barrier.
The staircase that you created is fantastic and perfectly in keeping with our barn. I would definitely recommend Elysion to anyone looking for a similar service, many thanks.
