Real Life Client Stories: Breathing light into the home with this glass staircase design

The Brief: Our client’s specifications

This exquisite glass spindle staircase is a wonderful example of just how much a bespoke staircase renovation can completely transform the home. Our clients wanted a design that would complement their fabulously modern property in Newmarket and flood their home with natural light. The unique architectural features of the residence, including the mezzanine balcony on the first floor, meant that our designer had ample opportunity to create something with a real wow-factor.

The Design

Gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows occupy the mezzanine snug area on the first floor, where natural light floods through to the hallway. To maximize light in the home, our designer selected cut-string glass spindles for the balustrade design, which not only allowed the light to flow throughout but created a stylish and artistic element to the design.

To perfectly contrast against the neutral tones used within the interior, a deep smoked oak was chosen for the base rail, handrail, and newel posts. The final solution channeled a bright monochrome minimalism aesthetic,  a style that is wonderfully timeless in any home.

“Our sheer glass spindles are a contemporary addition to a balustrade, offering unrestricted light flow with a distinctive yet subtle design. The Smoked Oak finish perfectly complements the neutral white walls while also balancing the vibrant decor.” – Geoff Fletcher, Senior Staircase Designer

The End Result

A perfectly handcrafted glass staircase, installed with no mess, no fuss, and no building work in just a few days. A design that advances beyond the simple functionality of a staircase. Instead an architectural and artistic feature of the home, that transforms the entire living space. Letting masses of natural light pour through every inch of the property and maximising space throughout.

“The light we get now is amazing. I chose glass spindles as they catch the light and look magical. This has been the best thing we have done to the house.” – Mrs Siragher, Client.
