The wood railing looks terrific installed. Looking forward to enjoying the porch soon. –Laura
The one-of-a-kind Charlotte NC wood railing with its artistic flair was made to match this Arts and Crafts style home, perfectly. The porch features a beautiful blend of architectural shapes, textures and colors — an elevated brick base, floor to ceiling windows and a steeply pitched roof. And natural branch handrails work harmoniously with all of these elements to create the captivating exterior.
The railing’s quality craftsmanship really stands out in the picture above, and the installation and finishing are flawless to the last detail. A translucent stain preserves the inherent beauty of the wood used in the top and bottom rails, pillars and newel posts. This allows the grain to show through. At the same time, the branch balusters are left natural covered in their rich bark.
While viewing this relaxing photo of the sitting area on the riverfront, it’s easy to take two key points concerning the handrail for granted. First, notice how the twig balusters blur the boundary between the porch and tree-lined landscape. Clearly, wooden spindles or metal rods just wouldn’t have the same effect.
Second, the railing mingles well with wrought iron furniture. In fact, the sinuous branches mix nicely with many materials such as metal, wicker and glass. So, there’s no need to invest in new outdoor furniture if you’re updating a porch or deck with Mountain Laurel handrails.
As you can see, this Charlotte NC wood railing is the central focal point in the height transition from the brick base to the pitched roof. If you’re looking to easily transform the plain appearance of your front porch, consider the look of outdoor art created by natural branch railings.
