Stair railing design trends in staircase remodels and new stairway builds have been heavy with the mixing or pairing of different materials. Steel stair railings mixed with other metals, glass, or wood for the balusters and balustrades can result in an eye-catching contemporary staircase railing system.
Stair Railing Design Trends that are Not Going Away
Stair Railing Design Trend #1: Cable Balusters
Custom aluminum or stainless steel cable balusters are a preferred choice for homeowners who crave unhindered views indoors and out. Surprisingly durable and low maintenance, cable balusters offer a semi-obstructed backdrop for terraces, balconies, and vantage points in and around your home. Pair custom cable balusters with a steel stair handrail for an extra modern flair with clean lines. It can also be paired with a wooden handrail for a traditional touch.
Stair Railing Design Trend #2: Glass Panels (Glass Balustrades)
For completely unobstructed views, custom glass panels are the way to go. Made from tempered glass, also known as safety glass, it is four times stronger than regular glass. Our stair experts will make sure your panels comply with building codes, engineering standards, and safety requirements. Complemented with steel stair railings, newel posts, and other elements, this is a stair railing system that will be the talk of the town. Take elegance to a new level by showcasing the natural light and scopes of your home.
Stair Railing Design Trend #3: Tailored Lighting
Custom LED lighting on stair treads, balustrades, or handrails can highlight any staircase for added texture and dimension. Choose from a variety of intensities, lens types, and colors. Whether for an interior or exterior stairway, lighting offers increased safety, durability, and design appeal. Plus, LED lights are environmentally friendly. Imagine the value of a “green” lit staircase if you were to ever sell your home; it would be a wise investment.
Stair Railing Design Trend #4: Sustainability
Go green with an eco-conscious staircase. Handrails, balustrades, balusters, newel posts, and stair treads can all be made from environmentally friendly materials. For example, a steel railing system that is corrosion-resistant lasts a minimum of 30 years without needing to be replaced.
Specifically, you can ask to choose steel made from recycled materials. Similarly, invest in a powder coating that does not contain solvents that are damaging to the air, groundwater, or soil.
Homeowners looking to invest in eco-conscious spaces and appliances are growing rapidly, as more people are aware of how it affects the planet.
