Balustrades are an essential part of any staircase, not just as a design element but for safety as well. There are many different designs and materials to choose from, so you’re limited only by your budget and imagination. Read on for more.
Simply put, balustrading is a row of balusters, or small posts that support the handrail. Look at any staircase and chances are that it uses some type of balustrading. Balustrading can be made from different materials such as glass, timber, stainless steel, welded aluminium, wrought aluminium, or lace balustrading which is made from cast aluminium panels. What material you choose will depend on the type of look that you are trying to achieve – for example, glass is good for sleek, contemporary look, while timber can be used to create anything from antique styles through to modern styles – and your budget.
You can choose from a huge range of standard designs or you can have your balustrading custom made. Custom made balustrading is perfect if you want to match another element of your home or if you have something extremely specific in mind.
If you are having new balustrading installed, this can be done by your stair builder at the time of building your staircase or it can be done by another professional such as a carpenter. Ensure that you get a free measure and quote on your balustrading, and that installation is included.
