Cable Rail for Interior Wood Stairs

Project ID: #1104

Cable rail for interior wood stairs punches up the finishing look. Bring your home into the 21st century with updates like these.

These before and after photos of a staircase show a change from wood rail and carpet to sleek wooden treads and coordinating black metal cable rail. While the before is certainly nothing too terrible, the generic wood rail found in so many builder-grade homes adds nothing. The worst offender, however, is the steps enfolded in thick carpet, which instantly dates and degrades the whole foyer. The first step is to rip out the carpet and install new wood steps, and at that point, the railing has to be replaced.

Homes will require railing to keep them both code-compliant, as well as safe. You may be considering metal as the material to use for your railings. Steel, stainless steel, and aluminum are among the most common metals for these projects. When you work with a custom fabrication shop, like Great Lakes Metal Fabrication, you can choose details to enhance the architecture of your home. In conclusion, railing doesn’t have to just be a necessity in your home; you can make it functional art!
