Creative Details: Handrails


The staircase is a huge focal point, no matter where it’s located in your home. This means that you shouldn’t ignore its design and should certainly think about sprucing it up a little to enhance the overall aesthetic of the space it’s in. One way to do this is by installing creative and beautiful handrails. The following are a few handrail ideas to consider:

  • Ornate handrail – For a handrail that doesn’t take up too much visual or physical space but that does boast an ornate design that turns that somewhat common wood stairway into something a little more special, go with a custom fabricated black metal rail.
  • Lighted handrail – For a more modern or contemporary style, attach a lighted handrail to the wall and leave the other side of the steps bare. Not only does a lighted handrail provide adequate lighting for night time use, it also highlights the architectural features of your stairs.
  • Recessed handrail – For a truly unique look, install a recessed handrail into the wall alongside your stairs.

These are just a few handrails that can enhance your stairs as a focal point. Contact us at Conner Remodeling & Design for remodeling in Seattle today.
