Steel Handrail

Design Spotlight: Modern Steel Handrails

One design trend that I’ve been seeing a lot of lately – and am absolutely in love with – is the use of horizontal-style steel handrails on interior staircases. The black finish looks especially beautiful when set against exposed brick, and a grey finish an add a very sleek, extra-modern touch to a space. Check out the photos below and see what you think!

The black metal handrail turned this typical Capitol Hill staircase into a beautiful centerpiece for the living area. Exposed brick and natural wood floors always look beautiful together. Add dark metal, and you’ve got a stunning combination!
