Staircase Railings Design Ideas

Indoor staircases are a crucial feature for any two plus story home. Besides their functional purpose, indoor staircases and the railing design should add more value and beauty to your interior. With their significance, staircases impact the visual aesthetics of your interior décor. So no matter how many accents and centerpieces you add, a drab staircase tends to tone down everything else. 

We’ve compiled a few ideas on transforming your indoor staircase so it can become the new focal point of your home!

Spiral staircases have a majestic appeal to them, and they help save space if you can’t opt for broader steps. Opting for metalwork railings on a marble staircase, like the one pictured, gives a vintage look that’s great for older homes. The wrought iron railing features aesthetic spiral designs which is complemented by the golden handrail.

A wrought iron railing with curved and spiral designs gives simple staircases a classic look, especially if it’s combined with carpeted steps and wooden accents, such as a decorative baluster. You can opt for any wooden finish, but a contrasting combination, like a dark stain with a neutral carpet, works best.

For a minimalist living space, a staircase railing with clean lines is the best option. Horizontal lines are preferable for smaller, more compact areas because of their lengthening effect. This staircase features a sleek handrail and slim banisters for support.

Just like how straight, horizontal lines in a staircase railing can create the appeal of a larger space, vertical banisters can bring everything together. This design, for instance, exhibits seamless integration because of the spiral accents that connect one banister to the next. Finally, a metallic, gold-colored handrail contrasts with the rest of the railing’s subtler tones.

A modern spin on metalwork staircase railings, this design incorporates a futuristic metallic color scheme and a sleek handrail. Most importantly, the railing panels include a loose meshwork that shows limited organization. These work as individual panels with other mediums, but the metalwork design can be recreated in succession as well. 

Arc Metalwork Railing

This arc metalwork staircase railing adds depth to small spaces with a widening effect. The design shows continuity and succession as each arc stems from the last. A supportive handrail provides stability and safety as the staircase is closed off from one side. For seamless connectivity, the design flows upstairs and into the ‘balcony’. 

By now, you’ll have noticed that decorative staircase railings can implement sophistication and elegance to any space, regardless of the size, context, or interior.
