Before & After: Changing a solid balustrade to spindles
Before & After: Changing a solid balustrade for spindles
Solid balustrades are a throwback to an era of home design that most architects and homebuilders have thankfully left in the past. Solid balustrades essentially enclose the staircase as a separate dark space in the home. By opening up the balustrade using spindles, increased light flow will create the impression of additional space especially with lighter timbers such as oak or whites.

An Ultra-Modern Frameless Glass Staircase
Abbott-Wade offer a range of glass staircases with embedded or clamped 10mm clear glass being a popular choice. For a super-modern minimalist style we also offer Frameless Glass options on new staircases such as this one. Our 15mm glass can be paired with oak or with a stained or painted finish on the stairs. Tour this recent installation over three storeys to see for yourself how the unobscured glass opens up the entire stairway and consider how a similar installation could transform your own home.

Transform the look of your home with a new painted staircase
The traditional look is still in style, even if more and more alternative staircase designs and materials such as glass and steel are appearing in people’s homes. At Abbott-Wade, we have been installing painted staircases for over 20 years and have found that traditional painted staircases are just as in demand now than when we first started the business. It’s of little surprise when staircases are fully customisable, with many different shades available. We can provide a full staircase renovation to suit the backdrop of your home.
