Which type of residential railings is best suited for your home? Picking out railings isn’t an easy task—there are many different designs and materials from which to choose. It’s important to pick the style that blends in with the rest of your home decor. Here are some of the most popular design ideas for residential railings that are currently available.
1. Unobtrusive Cable Railings
When it comes to railings, sometimes a simple design is the best. That’s why so many homeowners choose cable railings. This style provides a clear view of the surrounding environment.
Our cable railings feature horizontal infill to make your staircase, walkway, or deck safer. Because the cables are only 1/8″ in diameter, they virtually vanish from sight. Stainless steel cables are also easy to clean and require minimal maintenance. This design blends in perfectly with a variety of home decors, including transitional, mid-century modern, and contemporary.
2. Bold Statement Railings
Some homeowners want their railings to be a focal piece. In this case, you want to choose bold railings with larger balusters. While some railings may have round posts and top caps, it’s common for statement designs to use square and rectangle profiles for the posts, pot cap and infill, resulting in a more modern appearance.
Bold railings make a great decorative element for indoor and outdoor staircases, both for guardrails and handrails. Homeowners may wish to avoid this style on decks and balconies because these rails may obstruct the view.
3. Glass Panel Railings
When you want maximum visibility, glass panel railings may be your ideal choice. These railings feature a stainless steel frame with stainless steel clips to hold tempered glass panels in place. As with all of our railings, we can build them to accommodate the addition of a wood top cap by a woodworker for maximum design flexibility.
Glass panel railings have a modern aesthetic. This design looks beautiful on balconies and decks; however, you will need to clean the glass regularly to keep the panels free of fingerprints and dirt.
