5 Tips for Choosing the Best Glass Balustrades

Choosing glass balustrades for your home or business is a great way to modernise the property and add wow-factor. But what style do you go for? With so many options to choose from, it can feel overwhelming trying to figure out what would work in your Kent property. In this post, we’ll show you how to choose the best glass balustrades for your home or office.

1. Research the glass supplier

Not all glass is created equal. Before choosing the best style, make sure you’ve researched the glass installation company and you have the best quality product.

At London Balustrades & Glazing Systems, we use only the highest quality toughened glass and expert installation techniques to make sure you get a safe, fantastic final product.

2. Think about your interior

Do you have an industrial interior? Aluminium framing on your glass balustrades will make it tie in beautifully and give that same industrial feel.

If you have a more minimal interior, frameless balustrades look seamless and modern.

Even classic interiors can work well with glass when it’s paired with wood accents or a more classic shape.

3. Choose the right fittings

In general, there are three types of glass balustrades, and your fittings will depend on which you go for:

  • framed glass balustrades
  • Semi-framed glass balustrades
  • frameless glass balustrades

Framed and semi-framed both need stainless steel clamps throughout, which you may or may not want. Frameless don’t have clamps but need much more support, so won’t work in all properties.

4. Don’t forget accessories

It’s easy to make your glass balustrades look bespoke with the right accessories. From decorative steel studs to ornate feet, there are many ways you can personalise your new feature.

If you’re unsure what you want yours to look like, we’ll be able to give you all the options and show you what would work great in your property.

5. Think about the shape

Some customers love the look of rounded edges, others love the crisp lines of straight edging. Rounded edges tend to look a little more classic, whereas straight is more modern.
