Natural light is a hugely important element of any interior design project. Research has shown that natural lighting can improve your mood and even sharpen your concentration. Choosing a custom designed stairs solution means that natural lighting can be achieved with optimum results while the installation of a striking architectural stairs feature will serve to both enhance the interior design and even act as a showcase night-time feature.
What type of stairs work best for natural light?
In our experience, the utilisation of open risers within a stairs design adds a dynamic element of space and open risers also act as an efficient channel of natural light to any building interior.
All open risers from the Signature Stairs range comply with all relevant building regulations and we pride ourselves on creating specifically for the customer’s own needs with features such as lip-down/lip-up at front or back of each open riser or creating a glass riser for dramatic effect.
In addition, the elemental nature of providing natural light means that our range of stair effects such as floating steps with hidden support within the confines of the adjoining wall, central spine supported stairs or off-set stringer support stairs allows you a broad selection when deciding on the perfect solution for your project.
Let there be light with Glass Balustrades!
The choice of materials within a stairs design is also an important aspect in achieving natural light into an interior space and glass balustrades are an ideal solution for channelling light through a living space.
The durability, versatility, strength and eco-friendly nature of glass means it is the perfect choice to incorporate into your stairs project. Glass facilitates the natural flow of light and glass balustrades in particular achieve an eye-catching and attractive centre-piece to any stairs.
All glass balustrades within the Signature Stairs range are enhanced with toughened safety glass for your complete peace of mind and our experienced stairs designers will guide you on the best practice for fixing and fitting for maximum natural light results.
We also can advise you at the early stages of planning, designing and installing while providing solutions that can combine our glass balustrades with natural timbers or stainless steel finishes.
