Different stair railing

Stair railing comes in many different varieties. One of the most common commercial is made of metal railing. There are a few different commonly used metals everything from iron to wrought iron, and even stainless steel is used for different handrails. You can also go with a wooden handrail. Wood is good but if you have a spiral it is quite difficult because you have to use bender rail for it to make its way all the way down the stairs. The good thing about wood is that you will probably be working with wooden posts so you can pick the same exact species and that look really uniform and nice.

Besides railings you also should consider the different types of stair treads and risers. Most companies will sell these together. However it will depend on what you are trying to do. You can save money buy buying them separate if you don’t need them both to be too high quality. This means you can cover up your treads and risers with carpet and make the wood under them less expensive species. Just something nice and solid.
