What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Go floor to ceiling A glass balustrade can also work without the handrail, particularly when the sides are taken all the way up to the ceiling. Here, the glass panels are a practical solution to form a barrier along the staircase. However, they also allow the wood staircase, which contrasts crisply with the white surface below, to be the main focus. By keeping the rest of the design minimal, this striking element can take centre stage.Under-Stair Storage Ideas to Steal
3. Light a recessIf your hallway is all about minimalist finishes and swathes of architectural glazing, you won’t want to be messing it up with a bulky old banister. So why not copy this genius alternative? A handrail that’s not only recessed to save valuable space and create a neat finish, but is also top-lit, so it’s nothing more than a slash of light at night. Now that’s clever.
