Tempered Glass Panel Handrail Staircase Design PictureTempered glass staircase railings are the rage all over the world. Usually staircases are made of cement or if you prefer- marble. Wooden staircases are very uncommon and staircases with glass railings even more so. Glass railings are a great addition to your staircase only if you have the money to afford it as well as the money to maintain it.

To get glass railings, you need tempered glass. Tempered glass is a kind of toughened glass or safety glass. When this glass breaks it crumbles into small granules instead of breaking into huge shards of glass. This is less likely to cause injury and hence it is called safety glass. It is the best option in your home.

Nowadays, many homes are designed around the staircase to build up on its grandeur and majesty. Staircase central homes look beautiful when the stairs are well taken care of. You can opt for a tempered glass panel staircase or a tempered glass handrail staircase if you are looking for something that is both beautiful as well as innovative. There are so many things you can do with glass. You can use glass for the railings and even for the steps- if you are more adventurous.

Home interior designer decorators today also help you do up the staircase which is actually a boon because earlier it was considered the work of the architect and nothing could be done once the house was finished. But now, you can change the whole indoor look of your house if you are willing to invest some time, energy and money into it. You can find interior staircase railings designs in a number of books and on the internet so make sure to do your thorough research before selecting an option.

Glass stair handrails look beautiful, elegant and regal. They lend grandeur to a home like nothing else. Installing stair railings if you are opting for glass maybe difficult but it is definitely not as difficult to maintain. All you need to keep the glass looking new and shiny is a bottle of glass cleaner and a dishcloth.

Glass brings a feeling of cool and transparent to your home. It makes your house look bigger and more spacious. Moreover, there is more light because of the reflection of sunlight which makes the house bright and airy. However, if only glass is too modern for your liking, you can bring some warmth by way of incorporating wood in your staircase at intervals. This will help break the monotony as well.

The end result of only glass or glass and wood is magnificent. So tempered glass staircase railings are a great idea if you are willing to go that extra mile to make your home look beautiful.
