Balustrades are available in a variety of materials, including glass balustrades, wrought iron balustrades, timber balustrades and stainless steel balustrades. While glass and steel balustrades are a popular choice for staircases in modern or contemporary homes in Melbourne, the Melbourne stairs market has seen a recent resurgence in the popularity of timber and wrought iron balusters, thanks to the increasing trend towards American, specifically Hamptons-inspired, home design.
Custom made balustrade builders Melbourne
Custom made glass balustrades offer an open, minimal look for stairs. They can be incorporated into the staircase in a variety of ways, including support by timber post frames, stainless steel posts and glass clamps, tread mounts or insertion into stringers, handrails or even the ceiling. These offer the look of a floating staircase which is always a popular choice.
Stainless steel balusters offer a very modern look and we often manufacture staircases that extend stainless steel tubular rods from tread to ceiling, creating a visual barrier that is popular in contemporary home design, particularly in small spaces where privacy is craved but light is necessary. Stainless steel barriers are available in both matte and gloss finishes and deliver a clean and simple pattern that screams innovation.
Timber balusters are any asset to any stair design, offering warmth, texture and character. Turned balusters, newel posts and scalloped caps are just some of the many features on offer for those interested in a complete timber stair solution in Melbourne. Traditional timber balustrades often begin with a large, decorative newel post, which may have features including bespoke turnery, or custom chamfers. A scroll post is also an option, capped by a handcrafted wreathing scroll that harks back to the times of Victorian and Georgian era stair design. Timber balustrades are a very popular choice for those seeking American-inspired and Hampton-inspired stairs. Stairworks offers a large range of Hampton and American stair designs and accessories, as this has become a fashionable choice for stairs in Melbourne.
Wrought iron balusters are choice common to many stair designs in Melbourne, whether it be a traditional Federation stair, a French provincial geometric stair or a majestic Georgian staircase.
