5 ways to use a glass balustrade as a design feature around the home

Thursday 18th October, 2018

If you’re wondering whether to add a glass balustrade as a feature in your home, Peterlee Glass offer a number of design possibilities to ensure that the final look is tailor-made to your wants and needs.

What are the benefits of a glass balustrade?

  • Space – a glass balustrade, particularly when installed around your staircase/on elevated areas in your home, creates the illusion of an open, more expansive space

  • Light – a major benefit of a glass balustrade is that it will not block any light coming into the building, allowing sunlight to shine through and creating an airy feeling in the home

  • Modern – a glass balustrade is the ideal addition to a modern home. It differs from traditional walls and railings and will add more money to your home’s market value

  • Strong and durable – contrary to popular belief, glass is an incredibly strong material that, once installed, will last for years with little to no maintenance. Its durability ensures that, even over a long period, there won’t be many noticeable changes made to the material

To give you some inspiration for your own home, here are 5 ways to use a glass balustrade as a domestic design feature.

  • Staircase – perhaps the most popular use for a glass balustrade is as a staircase feature. It can be fully framed, semi-framed or frameless dependent on your requirements, and can be made from different types of glass. Whether you want it fitted in amongst an existing wooden staircase, or to be a completely new feature that stands alone, Peterlee Glass can accommodate your wishes.

  • Balcony – why not install a glass balustrade around your indoor/outdoor balcony area? Doing this will ensure that you have a completely unobstructed view of your surroundings.

  • Juliet balcony – alternatively, you could fix a glass balustrade to the external façade of higher floors in your home. This will allow full height French doors to be installed in place of a window, creating more light, better views and an improved sense of space.          

  • Hallway/Landing – a tailor-made glass balustrade in your hallway/landing area would revitalise the space and make it look significantly more modern. Installing a glass balustrade here guarantees that the space will be a statement feature in your home, appearing spacious and open.

  • Garden – want to add the perfect finishing touch to your decking/garden area? Our glass balustrades are stylish and contemporary and will provide an extra touch of class without spoiling any view of your garden.
