Top trends on staircase design

Home interiors tend to evolve with time just like shoes, clothes or even vehicles. This is because particular styles fall in and out of favor depending on the fashion of the day. Obviously, you cannot change your stairs as easily as your decor, so it is imperative to choose the right style for the first time. Below are some top trends that you should look out for:

Glass

This feature has experienced a big surge in popularity lately more than any other. Glazed stair balustrades are becoming more and more sought-after because individuals have the desire to maximize the feeling of space and light that they can introduce to their surroundings. Although glass stair panels used to be mostly the preserve of modern homes, these days they are usually utilized in traditional interiors to provide a contemporary twist and increase the flow of natural light around the home.

 

Clean lines

At the moment the general consensus when it comes to interior design seems to be that less is more. There has been a recent shift from decorative stair balustrades to simpler and cleaner shapes. While ornate turned spindles, caps and newels are still selling good. There has also been a greater interest in sleek, minimalistic designs like stop-chamfered and square styles.

Curves

As manufacturing techniques have advanced over the years, the demand for curved stairs has been gradually increasing. These staircases require a bit of space, but they can provide an excellent focal point. With their classic flowing lines, they are recommended for both traditional and modern homes. Spiral stairs are also proving to be popular, especially those who need a secondary staircase and the owners of smaller properties. They can still look elegant, but they do not consume as much floor area.

Mix of materials

When selecting a handrail, you are probably best off sticking with timber, because it is the most comfortable material to grip. However, in the case of balustrade infill, there are more choices available for you. As well as glass panels, you have the freedom to experiment with spindles made from wood, metal or a combination of the two. Metal spindles have become popular lately because of the broad variety of designs that are now available. Most of them are created from mild steel that is shaped to look like wrought iron, which assists in keeping both spindle weight and production costs to a minimum.
