Are you seeking ideas and inspiration to transform your hallway and landing? Have you grown tired of that rather staid looking staircase? Whether you are starting with a blank canvas, or the intention is to revitalise the existing area beyond a cosmetic repaint, then we may have just what you’ve been looking for.
For pure craftsmanship that will offer a practical solution and, at the same time, generate admiring glances, then the introduction of a bespoke oak and glass staircase could prove to be an inspired choice.
The combination of solid looking wood, matched with a pristine clear finish, can create an outstanding design feature, especially for any modern or contemporary home.
Certainly, a new-build or renovation project presents the perfect opportunity to design a customised staircase. Whenever the accent is on new and up-to-date architecture, then a bespoke oak and glass staircase could set the tone for the entire property – and continue to make an impact for years to come.
Be in no doubt that oak and glass make a dream team.
They won’t simply make the most of the space – they’ll also help to create space. Certainly, if there is a large expanse to work with, it does offer more scope but, even if you are looking to optimise a relatively small area, the introduction of glass will help to create natural light and an open appearance.
Starting with the base wood, whatever the size of hallway or landing, oak can be a pleasure to work with. It lends itself to customisation and can be fashioned in a variety of ways, to provide a truly bespoke finish. Adding glass to the equation offers limitless opportunities for innovative styling and will unequivocally demonstrate that this particular staircase has been personalised for your property!
Aesthetics aside, from a practical perspective, sturdy oak and toughened glass are extremely durable. They are also low maintenance – there’s no need for repainting and, additionally, keeping the glass clean from finger prints or dust is very straightforward.
There are so many ways that you can customise bespoke oak and glass staircases. One idea which helps to add that touch of class and luxury, is to integrate the design with steel clamps.
By its nature, oak is a robust, resilient and resourceful wood which is renowned for its longevity. However, a little TLC never goes amiss, which is why we would recommend treating the surface with some Osmo oil once a year. This will help keep the wood looking fresh and new.
There is nothing quite like a well-made, bespoke oak and glass staircase – and we love building them! If you are looking for suggestions, we’d be delighted to discuss them with you. Alternatively, why not go to https://jlajoinery.co.uk/staircases/ for more information.
