Dreaming of a New Staircase Railing

We’ve been thinking about replacing for our staircase railing for the last few months, and finally decided that if we could find a welder, we would commit to the project. Woohoo!

Here’s our current staircase:

It’s not terrible… but in Jill’s opinion, it’s basic, heavy and makes our space feel dated. ?‍♂️

We’ve been chatting with a couple contractors and decided that we’ll either do:

  • a black steel railing
  • a combination of steel and frameless glass, or
  • cable railings

We’d be happy with any of the options, so the one we pick will solely come down to cost. Our goal is to give our main living space a bit of a face lift, but on a very tight budget. 🙂

Here’s a few that we’re loving:

Lots for Jill to think about regarding the design, but for now, we need to focus on finding a welder!
