Give your home a modern feel with a Glass Banister

Glass can be a great addition to your contemporary home, adding a sense of luxury which you don’t always get from other materials. You will find that more and more buildings are incorporating glass into their design, as it offers a luxury touch and a feel of sophistication to any building.

Not only does glass look great as a centrepiece for your home, it also compliments other materials and can easily be fitted around, and to match, existing décor.

Installing a glass banister into your home or business will guarantee to create an interior you are proud of, and can show off to your visitors – not to mention that it will attract buyers, should you come to sell your property.


Create the illusion of a larger space

Unlike opaque materials such as wood and metal, which will block out light and make your space feel smaller, glass is a great material for a balustrade as it lets in natural light. Not only does allowing natural light to get into your premises save you money on electricity bills, it can also give you a connection to the outdoors and could actually improve your mood.

For these reasons, glass banisters and balustrades are becoming the material of choice for many home and business owners alike, creating a more open feel to your interior. This is especially important for small buildings, where rooms may appear cramped without the appearance of natural light to brighten the space and make it feel much larger.


Opt for a strong and durable material

Not only does glass add a touch of class and elegance to your home or business, it is also an extremely durable material. Glass can actually be much stronger than wood and other materials, and has benefits over other options such as its easy to clean and anti-corrosion properties.

All in all, glass is a robust construction material and is now a popular material for modern properties and a glass banister or balustrade will be a long-lasting investment for your premises.

Side view of a walk on balconyIn the warmer months, it’s highly likely that you’ll not only be looking to entertain more guests at your home, but that you’re also going to be keen to make the most of your garden and patio – everyone loves al fresco dining and drinking during the summer, and there are a number of ways in which you can facilitate this through home extension and installation.  One of the most spectacular additions you can make to your home in anticipation of summer entertaining is a walk-on balcony.

A walk-on balcony is not simply a brief extension to a window box or French window – it can really bring a luxurious touch to your home that will bring both a focal point and a practical means for you to invite more guests, or to host a garden or dinner party with a difference.  If you are proud of your garden you may wish to make the most of it with a unique vantage point, allowing you and your guests to look over while enjoying drinks, dinner and company alike.

More space for your home

Inside view of a walk on balconyWalk-on balconies, too, create a great deal more space – meaning that your home extends itself during warmer months and that you can enjoy the weather from the comfort of your own home, and with the ease of walking out from a bedroom and/or your lounge or dining room without having to traverse flights of stairs in the interim.  Everyone loves space – and you can effectively double the size of your entertaining area by taking on a walk-on balcony that’s in tune with your building style, personality and home décor.

Created specifically for you

There are many things to enjoy about a walk-on balcony, and it should not be ignored that they, too, will increase the appeal of your home – to you, your guests and even to potential buyers.  A walk-on balcony is practical, stunning and can be as unique as you’d like it to be.

Iron and steel balustrades: the perfect touch for your home

Iron and Steel Balustrades: The Perfect Touch for Your Home

steps and balustradeGetting the look just right for a balcony or exterior staircase isn’t easy – in many cases, designing a walk-on or feature balcony requires knowledge of practicality as well as a keen eye for contemporary flair.  The design portion can always fall to the homeowner seeking to benefit – but it takes the knowledge of an experienced manufacturing and installation firm to ensure that the best materials are used during fabrication for a balcony to be just as practical as it is visually stunning.  Popular materials used in balustrades both in and outside the home are iron and steel – not only due to their durable, weather-resistant properties, but also as a result of their flexibility.

Balustrades exterior to the home

balustrade on a garden terraceIron and steel balustrades are built to last – whether you are in need of a staircase leading up to your home or a balcony perimeter that matches the style and décor of your homestead, a balustrade or railing built from steel or iron can be depended upon to weather the years and to provide stability and security.  Balustrades, railings and staircases made from these metals are generally employed exterior to the home but can even be used in some circumstances with more contemporary options such as a glass balustrade – particularly if a homeowner is looking to create a truly unique design.

Adding that extra touch

When it comes to design, iron and steel really are your allies.  Balustrades made from these metals can be fabricated and galvanised to feature flourishes, patterns, twists and bends that playfully mimic styles dating back centuries, allowing you to bring a real touch of decadence to your home.  Iron and steel balustrades that are custom-designed can make a balcony installation all the more special, particularly if it is large enough to be walked out onto for entertaining – balustrades incorporating your own design and based upon luxurious styles and ideals of centuries gone by will really bring a talking point to any party or gathering, and best of all, they will withstand years – if not decades – of careful use.

The effects of a glass staircase in your business

The effects of a glass staircase in your business

glass staircase for your businessGone are the days of staircases having to be made from wood or timber – while high-quality wood product can still offer a spectacular look at home and in the office if used correctly, there has been a significant shift to more contemporary material in staircase design in recent years, particularly on the commercial side.  Offices and public buildings in 2016 will now largely be adorned with stainless steel and glass staircases, benefiting from glass balustrades and the occasional wooden railing – but why is this, and why should you be considering the merits of a glass staircase for your business?

Why they are so effective

Businesses opt for glass staircases not only for their professional sheen and clean, crisp look, but also for the amount of space they create.  Glass and mirror affectations can create the illusion of an incredible amount of extra space where it may not necessarily reside – and the aim of a business is, of course, to impress and to help customers, potential clients feel comfortable in their surroundings.  The thought of a wooden staircase in the office seems a little odd in today’s climate – and while they may work particularly well in certain homes and buildings, there is genuine appeal to installing a glass staircase in your office establishment, and much of its benefits work on a psychological level.

Glass staircases not only create the illusion of space, but also inspire trust – transparency in your fittings and fixtures inspires transparency in your business and dealings.  Similarly with open plan office installations and glass walls, if everything can be seen, you have nothing to hide from your potential clients and customers.  Glass fittings and fixtures can appear clinical if used in a certain way, but this is by no means a bad thing – as a clinical look can also inspire trust.  Many offices opt to ape the look of hospitals and doctors’ surgeries in order to create an assurance of dependability.  You will be surprised just how important making an impression with your internal fittings can be, particularly when you are trying to engage with a new client or potential business partner.  As with all walks of life, creating that big first impression is essential – and an effective glass staircase made to a bespoke design can really leave a positive and memorable imprint on your clients and customers alike – it is not just a connection between floors in your building!

The benefits of a glass balustrade

The benefits of a glass balustrade

Cantilever Oak and Glass Staircase South Yorkshire 17Homes and businesses alike have made a number of strides in contemporary design over the years in an effort to inspire, delight and to make the best of the space that they have to offer, and when it comes to entertaining guests, meeting clients or providing services to customers, spectacular interior – and exterior – design is absolutely everything.  One of the more popular trends in home and commercial design in recent years is the use of glass – particularly when it comes to balustrades.

But why use glass?  There are a whole host of reasons.  A glass balustrade provides greater transparency, increased light and the illusion of a grander space – after all, the bigger the space, the grander the feel.  Glass balustrades can be used in a variety of locations both internally and externally, and can open up even the tightest of spaces – used in tandem with glass or steel staircases or balconies, they can be designed and used to create unique, sophisticated looks that will really offer the first impression that your home or business is looking for.

Modern, contemporary look

Glass balustrades needn’t provide a privacy issue, either – when installing them as part of a balcony or rooftop pool solution, they can be designed and crafted with frosted or tinted glass so that you can retain the sophistication and class that you are looking to bring to your property without fear of opening yourself up entirely to the world – and coloured or frosted glass can look particularly unique, too, when designed and produced for a bespoke interior balustrade or external balcony.  Essentially, it is a modern and contemporary look that is becoming increasingly popular the world over – and it is one that can be incredibly versatile.

Having a Glass balustrade

Working hand in hand with stainless steel and in framed or frameless designs, no two glass balustrades are the same – and they can also provide fantastic support as a wind break in a balcony or decking installations.  Modern glass used in interior and exterior construction is incredibly resilient and is also remarkably low maintenance, making it a look that may seem luxurious and difficult to uphold, but is in fact a style choice that is incredibly easy to install and to keep looking fantastic all year round.  Glass balustrades make a popular choice for public health providers and private businesses as they offer a sleek, clinical and uncluttered look that can help any operation appear more refined and ready to offer high quality services and support to all their clients.  Essentially, it is a look that suggests transparency, offers a greater expanse of space and can provide unique sophistication to any home or business – and glass balustrades are easier to arrange and implement than you may think.
