Glass Stairs and Banisters

Glass can look spectacular in every kind of home, whether you’re hoping to renovate a staircase in a period property or upgrade an existing structure in a modern building.


Glass is a particularly great material to use for staircases located in enclosed spaces as it allows light to flood freely between the floors of your home. It can also make an impact in a larger space, taking your staircase from simply being functional to being one of your home’s most breath-taking features.

What are the benefits of having a glass staircase at home?

Glass is the ideal material to give your staircase and hallway the perfect lift. From laser cut glass that effortlessly graces any space, to stunning glass spindles for the very latest look, our designers can work with you to create glass stairs that truly are an architectural delight.

What is a glass balustrade?

Balustrades support staircases and provide safety. While various materials can be used to design a balustrade, glass balustrades have become extremely popular in recent years because of their countless benefits. Glass balustrades make a striking choice in modern architecture and interior design as they can help to create the illusion of space in a building, allowing light to shine through. In addition, they are easy to keep clean and exceptionally durable.

Why should I consider a glass balustrade?

The versatility of glass means that it goes with almost any complementing material and your options for design are just about endless. If your hallway is narrower than you would like, or lacks natural light, then glass balustrades can create an open plan aesthetic with ease. With a little creative imagination from our leading design experts, a new glass stair design can breathe life into any space.

What are the best glass railing designs?

You might opt for a whole glass balustrade or choose a look that’s a little more subtle. There are a variety of different options available when it comes to glass stair railings, and our designers are always on hand to help you decide. You can keep it simple with the clean lines of large glass panels, or add understated detailing with elegant glass spindles. Alternatively, you could experiment with metals by opting for a steel and glass staircase or create a more angular piece of architecture with a framed glass balustrade.

What are the things to consider when choosing a glass staircase?

Considering how imposing stairs can be, it’s essential to create as much light and space as possible, particularly in a part of the home where every inch counts. When transforming stairs with a glass staircase, it’s important to determine where the natural light is coming from. This could be a large feature window at the top of the stairs, a roof light or an open plan room at the foot of the stairs. Opening up the area using glass paneling enables the light to flood through, creating the illusion of more space around landings and hallways.

What colours and finishes are available for my railing and glass stairs?

Our designers will take you through the many different options you can choose from. For example if you're looking to brighten up your entryway, a glass and oak balustrade will let natural light flood your space, while still offering a design contrast. At Neville Johnson, we create bespoke glass staircases in a wide range of colours and finishes. Request a free visit from one of our design consultants to discover how glass staircase paneling can fit seamlessly into your home interiors.

What type of glass is used for staircases?
