A builder on the New Jersey shore was constructing a new modern home for a client. The interior design was a modern European style. It had modern kitchen cabinets, white walls with horizontal lines, and modern art adding color to the décor. We wanted to match the same flow with the stair railings.
The stair railing design intention was a modern European stainless design. However, with material shortages, supply chain issues and skyrocketing costs an alternative design was produced. The stair railing design transitioned to a horizontal modern flat bar railing design instead. The client selected an aircraft grade aluminum material for these rails. One reason this was used is because it could produce nice crisp corners. Secondly it resists corrosion even in the harsh elements of the Jersey shore environment.
The modern stair railing design was enhanced with a ½ x 2” flat bar caprail. The posts were 1 ½” square and the horizontal ½ X 1” flat bars were positioned on edge and attached to the railing post with the standard flat clasp. Leaving a clean and finished look to this modern stair rail.
To finish the entire stair railing project was sandblasted, pretreated, and powder-coated a silver sheen for a modern look. This stair railing truly enhanced the essence of this modern New Jersey shore home! Now it can be enjoyed and appreciated by the client and family for decades to come!
