How many times have you walked up and down the stairs without paying too much attention to what surrounds you? But, in fact, the design of this part of the house is no less important than anything else.
That is why more and more homeowners are choosing stylish stair rails, because they are not only for fencing or support, but help to create a whole image of your home. It can be a great home decor item.
Suppose you have a modern house, made in a minimalist style. Then you should choose handrails made of metal and glass, or wood, which will be well combined with the same floors.
The possibilities are endless.
This is a classic style in the interior, it is often chosen in addition to other elements made of this material. The distinctive feature of the handrails proposed below is simplicity.

Metal, as we have already noted, is a sufficiently ductile material that allows you to add various artistic elements to the design, including in the stairwells.

They can really emphasize the architectural ensemble of the house. An example of this is the following image (from Cornerstoun Group Architects via Houzz).
