Residential Stair Solutions for your Home

Stairs need to have railings in order to protect people from accidental falls and trips. These railings can also add to the beauty and décor of your property so it’s important to choose the right material. Wood has always been the most popular railing option but people have started to explore other alternatives as well. At Boston Ironworks, we’ve noticed that different types of metal railings have also become very popular. Here are some metal railing options you can consider for your home.



1. Wrought Iron

Wrought iron is right up there with wood when it comes to popularity. This material has been around for centuries and is always used in railings and fences. Wrought iron is so popular because it’s durable and easy to maintain. Once you install it, you don’t have to worry about replacing it for decades. Refinishing it is also very easy as you just need scrub the old paint, apply primer, and then apply a fresh coat. It can easily be a weekend DIY project.

2. Stainless Steel

If you prefer the modern minimalistic look with glossy surfaces, you will love stainless steel stair solutions. This material is very durable and doesn’t even require as much maintenance as wrought iron. Stainless steel isn’t prone to rust and corrosion so you can add these railings to both indoor and outdoor stairs. Steel is also very versatile and can be molded into any kind of design. You can also choose different finishes so if you want a more industrial look, purchase a satin or matte-finish railing. If you want a more sleek and modern look, you can purchase a railing with high-gloss shine.

3. Aluminum

Aluminum is a more affordable alternative to wood, wrought iron and steel but it offers good durability as well. Aluminum is lightweight and naturally resistant to corrosion and rust. That makes it ideal for indoor as well as outdoor railings. It is also very versatile and comes in different designs and colors. You can choose the natural color of the material with a matte or satin finish if you want a more edgy and industrial look.

You can also choose brass or copper railings, though they’re not as durable as the options mentioned above. If you want to know about stairs solutions, you can call Boston Ironworks at 617 657 3117. You can also fill in this contact us form. We’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
