We put a lot of effort in decorating our home. But often staircases are left looking dull and boring. It is mainly because of lack of creative ideas that people do not put that much time in designing the perfect stairs. In today's ideabook, we are going to introduce you to 15 beautiful railings that can add an excellent charm to your existing ladders. So go through the entire article to choose your favorite.

1. A basic

One of the most loved and simple types of railings that you can use for your stairs is this vertical string design. It allows you to achieve a strong structure without it being too heavy.

2. Glass plates

In case you do not want to disturb the view by installing a traditional railing then you can opt for glass plates. They are easily available and can be customised according to the sizes you need.

3. Structure that rotates

A fully covered spiral or rotating staircase is another way to create a secured structure. Here the designer has painted it white so that it blends easily with the rest of the area.

4. Playful and minimalist

To create a playful and minimalistic design you can opt for geometrical figures or even random lines. These railings are one of the most simplest out of all the options.

5. Elegance in glass

To add a touch of elegance to your glass railing try incorporating wood. Here the designer has incorporated a wooden bar on top of the railing so that it adds more sturdiness to the structure.

6. Steel

If you want to use a material which is light for creating your staircase railings then try considering steel. It also provides an industrial flair to the house.

7. Traditional wood

For traditional or classic looks you can use wooden railings within the home. Multiple carved wooden pieces are usually put together to create a grand looking railing as seen in this picture.

8. Perfection in steel

In case you want to use steel for creating your staircase railing but do not want it to look like an industrial element then try painting them in a darker colour. Here the black colour of the railing adds a certain warmth to the space.

9. Black ironwork

A delicate railing design which has been used for decades is of black ironwork. It is very easy to incorporate customised designs in such structures which is why it is the most loved.

10. One complete piece
