Top Materials You Could Consider For Your Balustrading

Gone are the days when balustrades were exclusively used for stairways. Homes with modern designs incorporate this structural design element in multiple ways as it goes a long way in adding elegance and charm to the overall appearance of the space However, the material that you choose will play a role in dictating how safe the balustrades will be as well as the type of appeal that the balustrades will bring to the space. As such, it is crucial for homeowners to know what options are available to them as they can discern which materials would work best in the different areas of their home. So what are some of the top materials that you could consider for your balustrading?


There is a good reason why timber balustrades have remained an ubiquitous aspect of homes all over the world, and this is the rustic charm and timeless class that they add to any space. Timber also comes in an assortment of species that are characterised by various grain patterns and colours, so you can be assured you can find wood balustrades that would be complementary to the home. Nonetheless, timber balustrades do come with a set of drawbacks. The biggest con of these types of balustrades is they would require more maintenance for them to stay unaffected by moisture and changing ambient temperatures. Failure to protect them against these elements would lead to their structure being compromised, which in turn would decrease the safety of your balustrades.


If you think that solid balustrades will make your home look confined, you may want to consider glass balustrades. Glass balustrades are one of the safest options that you could consider as they are manufactured with tempered glass that has a high resistance to impact. The glass also reflects light, which works to make your home appear brighter, airier as well as larger than it is.


If timber is not your cup of tea because you have a more contemporary design to your home, then steel would be a material that would be right up your alley. Steel was not popular in years past as people would assume that they would make their homes seem cold and foreboding. The reality is that although steel was primarily an industrial material, advancements in technology have now made it one of the most sought after building supplies for residential applications. Steel provides your home with sleek lines and a minimalist appearance that is quite pleasing to the eye. Moreover, the steel balustrades can be used both for indoor and outdoor applications, so you can be assured of uniformity throughout your premises.
