A few months back I blogged about staircases. I think they are a weak spot for a lot of on-a-budget home owners or renters so I supplied some great inspirational sources to help out but I mostly focused on the stairs themselves. Today, I want to talk about railings. Here we go:
Apartment Therapy once again shows us how it’s done. If you have wooden baluster then you can paint them. There are so many ways you can paint them but I like this image because it keeps the eye moving and all the colors are close to one another so it doesn’t look like a circus.
I love this look. It’s a found oak log used as a hand railing. Brilliant! It has the look of a log cabin but it stays fresh and funky with the taupe/beige wall paint and the pops of yellow.
Look at that great piece of driftwood. Another brilliant idea for stair railings.
Here we have a rope for a hand rail. It goes great with this place because the circular window and whitewashed floors keep this place looking nautical.
Here goes another nautical hand rail. Watch out for rope burn though!
I’ll tell you why I absolutely love this. This iron stair rail is a typical manufactured kind that come in most homes. Nothing fancy, nothing special. Adding the planks of wood are not only budget friendly but immediately make this old, tired look become fresh and modern. And the mix between the wood and the metal is one of my favorites- it’s an industrial natural look that I love.
Yes, another rope idea but this time they come on the balusters. I wouldn’t get so caught up it what the entire decor is in this picture. You can use the same idea for the rope railing but make it your own flavor. You can keep it modern, casual, funky, etc. Whatever you choose.
Use these images to inspire your own creativity.
Have a wonderful Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by
