A beautiful staircase can be the stair of any one. It has been an eye-catching element from the beginning and as its design involved over the years, its status never changed. But a beautiful staircase is defined by several aspects. The design is, of course, very important. But, most often, it’s the handrail that makes it stand out. Some stair cases have given up the handrail completely in order to archive a more minimalist look.
Modern handrails come in many different shapes and models. Most often they are made from wood or metal and they are simple. But there are also cases when handrail can have a more artistic look and this allows it to stand out even more. The wooden stairs match the flooring and the handrail has a very similar look. A very common combination in the case of modern staircase is that between wood and metal.
That’s because the resulting design is usually some where between classical and contemporary. The staircase has a metal structure with the stairs and handrail made of wood. Chromed metal handrails have a more clean and modern appearance but they are also more difficult to integrate into decors. Here the handrail matches the floor lamp so there is continuity in the decor. In a contemporary home, straight lines and angles are often a very common motif. Here, for example, the same details were used for the handrail, stairs and furniture but the decor also features complementing shapes and forms.
