Not sure exactly what that “look” should be or why one material is better than another? We’ve combined our hints for why our favourites—wood stair cases and glass stair cases—are the best choice for you and your objectives.


These days, achieving the right look and balance in your home comes with having to make plenty of decisions and choices for what’s currently spread across the market. While some home owners prefer simplistic looks, others opt for the extravagance of classical stylings and features that draw the eye. Choosing a staircase is no exception—we’re now armed with the ability to choose from various types of materials to construct staircases from, allowing homeowners to pick the perfect look for their space.

 

Not sure exactly what that “look” should be or why one material is better than another? We’ve combined our hints for why our favourites—wood stair cases and glass stair cases—are the best choice for you and your objectives.

  • For affordability, go wooden: Home owners have the option to choose wooden stair cases when restricted by tight budgets. These versions are usually significantly cheaper and can be customised to look either classical or modern.
  • Cutting out the noise: Not all of us like the sound of footsteps hammering up and down the stairs throughout the day (or worse, the night). Wooden staircases are great for decreasing these levels of noise, compared to options like glass. 
  • That cosy touch: Nothing gives off a warming, comfortable feel more than wooden features. These staircases only extenuate that, making them ideal for spaces that are meant to appeal to classical tones and concepts.
  • For longevity: Unfortunately, wooden staircases look great, but they don’t always stay that way. As a long-term option, glass wins the game, with wood often being less durable thanks to impacts like humidity or even extreme temperatures. Moreover, nuisances like pests can infect the wood, meaning it needs to consistently be treated as the years go by. 
  • The modern edge: There’s no doubt about it that glass is the pinnacle of new-age design, giving spaces a simplistic, yet refined touch. The contemporary feel of this option also gives minimalistic designs a better suited option. Moreover, there’s also the choice of opting for a frameless version, for even more of a “futuristic” appeal. 
  • No dust, no worries: Spending your weekend sweeping away all that dreaded dust is definitely not ideal, so for those that lack the motivation to dust away their days on a wooden staircase, glass is the way to go. 
  • For the corporate look: Stepping into a high-profile office, you’re more likely to see a glass staircase over a wooden one, usually because it gives off a professional and clean vibe. For office-goers, this is a more suitable choice.
