From making the most of stunning views on residential balconies and terraces to creating spacious and welcoming environments in commercial offices, bespoke balustrades can provide the essential finish to any interior and exterior property.
In the heart of London, companies are expanding and developing their offices to fit their high end brand by creating a place not just to work but also to entertain their valued clients. Instead of a low budget refurbishment, many companies are investing in greater interiors, features and furniture to boost their company image.
The use of glass balustrade has become popular due to its contemporary appearance. Once installed, glass can visually suggest a sense of increased space and open plan living, where natural and interior lighting can travel through the crystal clear panels. In turn, this creates a brighter environment, which is ideal for both offices and home interiors.
Similarly, polished metal balusters and fixings catch the light and reflect it around the room providing a secondary light source. More frequent in residential homes, a baluster design can complement existing features around a home or create a brand new, unique style that can be built upon.
The design of a property is not just concentrating on the interior, it is also evolving the exterior to deliver an appearance that is aesthetically pleasing. In the same way glass balustrade provides a sense of space inside, it also does outside. By using low iron glass balustrade a property can ensure the views off of its balcony or terrace is uninterrupted.
Once chosen, a balustrade can be enhanced with the choice of handrail finish and positioning. Now in 2015, the popular materials including brass, stainless steel, walnut timber, leathers and other animal skins are becoming increasingly more fashionable within interior design. These mentioned materials are very good at complementing raw materials and surfaces such as concrete and rusted steels. Trendy bars, restaurants, offices, retail stores and even residential homes are displaying this new raw interior style. The most common example being Urban Outfitters.
