Bespoke Design and Elegant Architectural Metalwork – Staircases that Would Enhance Any Property
There is something totally modern, yet steeped in history, about enhancing a property with metalwork. Think back to the Victorian era when most luxurious estates had black cast iron fences with their iconic fleur-de-lys points topping each post and then to all the metalwork screens that adorned fireplaces around the country and you’ll start understanding just how important decorative metalwork was in architecture dating back as far as anyone can remember.
Today is no different except for the fact that metalwork is now more contemporary, done in shiny stainless steel in many cases and although less ornate, it’s just as lovely nonetheless. How would you like your home to be the showcase property of your neighbourhood, done up in bespoke design and elegant architectural metalwork? Start by thinking about bespoke architectural staircases that would enhance any property.
Cutting-Edge Floating Staircases
There is something almost ethereal about a floating staircase but when it is crafted from highly polished metal with an accompanying metal handrail or balustrade, there is nothing more perfectly suited to today’s contemporary architecture. Bespoke design allows you to match any interior look you are going for and when fabricated especially to your design, you would have a home worthy of mention in House and Garden.
Glass Staircases with Bespoke Metalwork Balustrade and Handrails
Then there are those floating staircases that are crafted with each step made of 100% transparent, heavy glass. This type of bespoke staircase often has a complementary bespoke metal balustrade and/or handrail which is easily welded to a metal frame with the use of Foster Industrial welding equipment. The beauty of a glass floating staircase is that they give the illusion of literally floating in the clouds as you rise each step and they are simply as elegant as you can get in today’s modern architecture.
Choosing Your Metal
One of the choices you will need to make when opting for a bespoke metal staircase is the kind of metal you’d like to have it crafted from. For some staircases, particularly the outdoor type, a black iron metal is used because it can resemble (or even be used for!) fire stairs but can be crafted much more ornately to add beauty to the building. For indoor stairs, most people choose a shiny stainless steel that can be polished to a high gloss for an ultra-modern appeal and is structurally one of the soundest types of staircase available. They can withstand great loads as opposed to other types of floating staircases made of less durable materials.
Whether you are in the process of designing your home or are renovating it to give it a totally different appeal, take time to consider having a fabricated metal staircase crafted for you. There will not be another like it and you will soon learn how easy they are to care for. Unlike wood that marks easily, metal can be buffed and will withstand the test of time. If you are looking for something above and beyond what anyone else in your neighbourhood is doing, bespoke metal staircases and balustrades are the answer every time. Indoors or outdoors, it’s a cut above the rest and a decision you’ll never regret.
