Top 4 Reasons To Install Glass Balustrades In Your Home

Glass balustrades are a great way to modernise your home and find a stylish, safe solution to your stairs or balconies. Balustrades act as barriers or fences in places around your home, including on decking. There are many benefits to using glass to build your balustrade, not only aesthetically but also in terms of durability and reducing your cleaning!

Modernise your space

The sleek look of a frameless glass balustrade on your staircase is hard to rival. Glass balustrade stairs open up your space, giving you the illusion of larger rooms and hallways. When used as a balcony, glass balustrades not only keep you from falling, but they can give the illusion of a higher ceiling because there is no obstruction to your view. The same applies when you use it in your outdoor spaces, glass balustrades on decking provide you with a full view of your garden and are a contemporary addition to your relaxing space.

Create light

One of the best features of using glass partitions for the home is the creation of light in your space. If you’re limited on windows, your landing space can become very dark, but you can make the most of the light you do have by installing glass balustrade stairs. A frameless glass balustrade design gives you even more light and a contemporary feel.


Although glass partitions might sound like a potential hazard, the advancement of modern glass means that it is in fact very hard to break, let alone shatter. All Applied Workplace partitions are constructed with toughened glass, so you can enjoy your balcony without worry.

The other benefit of glass is that it doesn’t warp or corrode in the same way wood does. Therefore, you can purchase an external or internal glass balustrade and know that it will last for decades without ageing. No one wants to add housework to their day-to-day living, and glass balustrades only require a glass cleaner and cloth to keep it looking brand new.


Whatever your style, there will be an internal glass balustrade to suit your home. You can choose framed or frameless styles, add a handrail or even clamp fixings between traditional newel posts on your stairs. They provide a classic look that will never go out of fashion, ensuring your home is always up to date and easy to look after.
