Stair railing makes a strong statement about interior design choices. Interior stair railing kits from Wood Railing are a great choice! In many homes, the staircase is the most visible architectural element inside the home. As it rises from floor to floor, the viewer’s eye is drawn upward towards the heavens. Often the stairs will be accompanied by a stone or rock fireplace in a great room. This large living space is the central gathering point of a home.
Mountain Laurel Handrails use natural wood balusters to create wondrous designs from branches that have grown into a variety of shapes. This balcony handrail connects with the stair railing and leads into the cathedral ceiling. The homeowner liked the look of yellow pine lumber and they already had a lot of wood in the home which made this rustic stair railing the crowning jewel in this home. Other options for stair railing include wrought iron railing, glass panels or balusters, regular wood balusters made of 2×2 boards. There are also other artistic options where crafty skill is needed.
The stairs lead up to a balcony where the handrail of the stairs continues. Many formal designs feature vertical balusters that are evenly spaced. Sometimes these wood balusters will be turned with designs seemingly carved into them.
The first thing you see as you enter this home is the stair railing and it leads to the balcony handrail which is also made in the rustic branch style. The tongue and groove lumber on the cathedral ceiling required expert woodworking precision to ensure a close fit. Take a close look at the pictures and you’ll see all the special modifications that the carpenters made to produce quality finished work.
This handrail installation made this home extra special and unique. But Mountain Laurel Handrails aren’t the only type of stair railing that is a good match for a rustic mountain home. If you’re building a log home, or timber frame, there are a few options. Many homes built in the craftsman style will have strong horizontal elements in the woodwork and intricate, built up columns.
Depending on the style that you’re looking for, you’ll have some choices to make. But choosing a bold statement for your stair railing and balcony handrail is sure to make a strong impression! Contact Today with your project details to get started!
