Latest Trends in Railings
Post by : favouritehomes
Building a home can be challenging, especially as there is an increasingly wider choice of ideas and materials to choose from. And since everyone wants a stylish but functional home that will remain in fashion for many years to come, making the right decision can get challenging. Things that you have taken for granted and never considered before suddenly take on more meaning.
Take the humble staircase railing for example. Most people don’t even give it a second thought. But when you are deciding on one for your own home, you definitely want it to be trendy as well as functional. To tell the truth, you want it to stand out and feel the thrill when your friends look at it wide-eyed.
There is no end to the number of materials you can use to create railings. There is the traditional hardwood, wrought iron, progressing to the more modern steel and hardened glass. Whatever your style, contemporary, traditional or modern, there is a railing to suit your style. An interesting railing can create a lot of difference to your interiors. Here are some ideas to think about.
Wrought iron railings
Most people think of colonial mansions when it comes to wrought iron railings. However, these are becoming a fast-catching trend that balances between being functional and being an art decor.
Stainless steel railings
Though it has been popular in the commercial scenario, it’s fast adapting to the home scenario too. Coming in post-modern designs, stainless steel rules the architectural landscape with imaginative designs and is here to stay.
Other metals railings
Though steel is the reigning king among metals, brushed brass, bronze, and even aluminum aren’t too far behind. Aside from being uniquely different, they create a light and airy decor point for your friends to talk about. But that doesn’t mean it’s not functionally useful either.
They go great with minimalist decor and make an otherwise cramped space look open and spacious. The glass panels can be clear, colored or patterned. They can also have sandblasted or etched surfaces that bespeak of patterns and an attempt to create privacy by reducing clarity. The glass panels can be framed in steel or aluminum or can be frameless for that post-modern look.
These are the traditional form of railings that are making a comeback. They create a timelessly traditional appearance that adds a touch of elegance and richness to your humble staircase.
Hope you got some ideas on installing your staircase railing
