Allowing The Light To Flow

Increasing in popularity, adding glass as a central design feature of your stairs will add a a modern look to your home.  A glass balustrade ‘opens’ up the space, allowing light to flow more easily, and emphasises the features and textures of your entrance way.  With the translucence of glass your property becomes much brighter, not just the hallway as the natural light is allowed to travel through the house.   

A perfect example of this was a large residential property that A & T Carpentry recently installed a new staircase.  You can see in the finished design that the extensive use of glass allows the light to permeate throughout the space.  Whilst this a large, stunning and elegant feature staircase the transparency of the balustrade keeps the stairs from feeling overwhelming. In fact, the large lower step invites you warmly  up towards the next landing.

Exposed Metal

The great outdoors has increasingly become an important part of all our lives during the pandemic lockdown,  It has also become a source of inspiration for designers in 2021.

Steel provides the ultimate ultra modern statement when use in the home. It’s industrial finish is becoming increasingly popular and adds  flair and texture into the design of the stairs.  It will last a lifetime and its rugged feel brings the adventure of the outdoors into the home.

Floating or Cantilever Staircase

This is at the forefront of staircase design and engineering.  A cantilever is a beam anchored to just one wall. Cantilevered stairs are individual stairs pinned to the wall with steel bolts. As they ‘float’ suspended in the air they make maximum use of the available space.  Stylish and minimalist, they allow the maximum amount of light to penetrate the space.  This is the perfect solution to small, dark and gloomy entrance ways.
