Using a black railing can fit with traditional or modern architecture of a patio or porch, and it can help the railing or a fence seem to fade away when you're trying to relax and enjoy the view. This black railing uses steel cables, but designer Mosaic Group Architects and Remodelers has recreated the look on a lower-end budget. It spray-painted a chain link fence black and found the result also is far less obvious than with silver.
To access the second floor, the owners simply need to turn a corner and follow these stairs. A thin metal railing offers support along the way, without drawing attention from the beautiful wood siding.
The designers created a more open and inviting landing to the lower level of the home. A custom railing on the existing stairs allows light from the main floor to drift downstairs. Powder-coated metal pairs with a white oak handrail.
A tan wall complements the dark hardwood floor that moves through this contemporary hallway. A long, thin mirror with a textured frame is a simple, stylish touch. The stairway is lined with a glass and stainless steel railing for a sleek look.
