An essential aspect of the creation of any staircase is the development of the railing. Oftentimes the first thing that people notice about your stairs, the railing can be customized in endless ways to accent your home’s interior design style.
Much more than just a decorative accent, the stair railing you choose to incorporate into your custom designed staircase is also an important safety feature for family members and guests in your home. Especially helpful for young children and elderly individuals making their way up and down, a steady railing is a must.
You will find traditional wood railings inside of many homes, but we at Acadia Stairs prefer to experiment with more modern designs when it comes to the creation of our custom metal staircases.
Metal and glass railings are two of our customers’ favorite options, and both of them can create a bold, contemporary look.
From sleek and simple line railings to intricate wrought iron railings, there are metal options for every home and staircase style. We especially love the look of bold wrought iron when paired with elegant spiral and curved staircases. More simplistic metal railings accent the contemporary style of a straight single or double stringer staircase perfectly.
Along with metal railings’ ability to create a bold touch of modern style, they are also durable and easy to maintain. Metal railings won’t show age and use the way that wooden railings do, and the only cleaning required is the quick wipe of a cloth to remove dust.
Another beautiful option for your modern space is a sleek glass railing. A railing style that allows the steps themselves to take center stage, glass creates the clean appearance of open space. Glass panels are typically fitted together with metal balusters, making them blend seamlessly with your metal staircase design.
This style railing does require a bit more work than its completely metal counterpart – especially if you live in a home with small children and pets.
Now that you have some ideas on how you would like to accent the look of your custom designed staircase with its railing, all that’s left to do is get started on your project with Acadia Stairs. Call us at 845-765-8600 to begin planning your staircase and railing design.
