Glass Stair Panels to Enhance the Aesthetics of your Home

Your staircase may provide you with a means from getting from one floor to another, but it can also be a significant design feature of your home.

Instead of sticking to a more traditional stairs style, introduce some creative flair to your space with a glass panel staircase. This contemporary look is ideal for creating wow-factor in your entrance hall and letting light flow freely around the area.

Introducing luxe styling into your hallway is made easy thanks to our stunning bespoke glass staircases. Check out our design ideas below before heading to our staircases section to browse potential options for your home.

Glass staircase ideas

Glass staircases can look good in almost any age or style of home, not just new-builds. They’ll add aesthetic appeal to open-plan barn conversions, as well as cottages and townhouses with larger reception halls.

You might consider a whole glass balustrade or a look that’s a little more subtle. We have plenty of glass banister ideas.

When it comes to decorating the rest of your hallway, keep your décor relatively simple to allow your glass panel staircase to really stand out. Lighter paint colours work best, although you could also choose to decorate one wall in a bolder shade to create a feature.

If you like your décor to look seamlessly coordinated, blend furnishings in your hallway with the materials in your glass staircase, whether that’s dramatic steel or warm wood.

Oak staircases with glass balustrades

If you want a balance of classic and cutting-edge, an oak staircase with glass bannisters is the perfect compromise. This style can look good in all manner of homes and allows you to keep your hallway design timeless for years to come.

Once you’ve selected your preferred frame and handrails, have fun deciding what style of glass balustrade you want. Glass spindles provide a space-age spin on typical wooden slats. You could also maximise your light with large, sparkling panels of glass.

If you’re adding an oak and glass staircase to a brand-new house, emphasise the airy aesthetic by ensuring the room it sits in has plenty of windows or skylights.
