Choosing Wood Handrails There's nothing quite like the dramatic, sweeping line of well-designed handrails. Rich woods in inviting finishes create a real sense of warmth. Whether your architecture leans toward stately and classic or streamlined and contemporary the handrail will go a long way toward completing the look. Handrails come in a variety of shapes and sizes making it easy to mix and match design elements along the balustrade. We offer a range of pieces designed to work well with both post to post and over the post designs, and we can customize items to suit individual preferences.
