Every homeowner wants a home that is safe, provides a good standard of living for its residents and looks attractive. Interior railings are often an element of a home that has traditionally been overlooked, but thanks to designs that are getting more aesthetically beautiful, they are now getting the respect that they deserve. Whether you want to use them for on and around your home’s staircase(s), surrounding an elevated landing, or elsewhere, interior railings certainly offer safety, functionality, and an added design element for any space. There are many types of materials available for interior railings, and below we outline a few different ones to let you know what’s possible for your home.
This type of material offers a nice rustic element – with typically more classic appearances. Wood railings can be polished to provide a more stylish look, or carved to provide a more traditional aesthetic. Popular choices for the type of wood include maple, oak, cypress, mahogany, and pine. Paint can also be used to match the railings up well with a home’s interior colour choices.
Metal is a popular material to use in railings as it’s very durable, low maintenance, and has excellent strength. Metal railings are typically used with contemporary designs – either simple with no decoration or pre-molded designs are also available. They can be painted to align with any space’s design, or left as is to provide a more simplistic and clean visual.
Stainless Steel Railings
When you think about stainless steel railings you likely reflect on their elegant look. They can be painted to match any shade of wall, floor, or staircase. When a lighter and more delicate application is desired then fabricated hollow stainless steel pipes are certainly an option.

This type of railing is absolutely gorgeous and really helps to add a feeling of prestige to any home. The material is very dense and heavy but is also fragile and susceptible to cracking so this fact has to be kept in mind. They require the installation from an experienced professional and typically require fasteners to properly fixate them in place. When marble railings are deployed in conjunction with glass spindles, the crystal clear addition really helps to boast an even more luxurious look overall.
This type of railing is gaining in popularity thanks to their wonderful long-lasting durability, they are low maintenance so they don’t command a ton of upkeep to keep looking great, installation is straight forward, they are a quite affordable option compared to other alternatives, and they offer a good level of beauty as well. Aluminum provides a nice balance of benefits and is a popular option that our clients often request, and for good reason.
Vinyl railings have emerged as a decent alternative to wood railing systems, and the material comes with less maintenance than natural wood – which is a nice advantage for homeowners who want to save on time.
Every material has its pros and cons, but all of these should be considered as a solution when the time comes to make a decision for an interior railing.
