A modern home design staircase trend that has stuck around (and doesn’t look like it’s diminishing any time soon) is a metal stair railings. There is not just one benefit or advantage to having steel staircase railings in your home. Previously found only in commercial buildings, steel has now gravitated into the homeowners’ realm for both interior and exterior stairway remodels and new builds.

Indoor and Outdoor Appeal

Steel is a great look for both the inside and outside of homes. For interior and exterior railings and balusters, you can choose from a variety of ornamental steel tubing, powder-coated finishes, bespoke simplistic designs, paired with newels and more.  If a custom engraving is something you are interested in, this is a great addition to make your steel stair railing system even more customized.

Homeowners with an urban contemporary style design, open floor plan, a loft or a condo, have all expressed a desire for steel stairway elements. For example, a steel railing system can complement metal lighting elements, kitchen appliances, grills, balconies, pool decks, and more. Furthermore, steel is a good complement to furnishings with an industrial look.

Easy Maintenance

Steel railings, balusters, fittings, and newel posts only require a quick periodic cleaning done with very little effort. Compare that to cleaning and maintaining a wood railing. Wood that is not re-sanded and re-stained every few years will quickly rot and fall apart.
