The house railing design makes a striking transformation to the feel of a house. If you are looking for railing designs for your balcony grill design at home or office, look no further, as we have collated the best ones for you. Read on!

There are a few varieties in railing choices for home interior design. These differ in the materials used and the usage of such railings. These are as follows :
 

Steel Railing Design

Steel railings are very versatile and can work very well with other materials like glass or wood. For those who are particular about the kind of strength the railing exhibits, a steel railing design would be the obvious choice. Railings that are made of stainless steel hardly require any maintenance, and are very easy to clean and customize. Steel railings are durable and long-lasting. They also work very well with various other materials. Steel railings can be an amazing addition to the aesthetics of your home. Steel railings, unlike wood or other organic materials, cannot be damaged by insects or pests. Stainless Steel does not rust, but other forms of steel may rust and hence might need maintenance

Wrought Iron Railing Design

Another popular railing design idea is to use wrought iron as the material. Wrought iron brings about a classical grandeur to space. You can make ornate designs with wrought iron like curls and swirls. In fact, wrought iron is the most convenient material that allows you to achieve decorative effects in your railing designs. Such intricate pattern choice may be customized or may be available as an ‘off-the-shelf’ item. Wrought iron also works really well with wood, and woodwork done around wrought iron railings is insanely good-looking as it adds a majestic touch to your interiors. Wrought iron is most widely used for entry gates, and large gateways, but this alloy of carbon and iron lends itself to railing designs very well too. Wrought iron is a material that is rust-resistant and durable. Wrought iron requires minimal repairs or maintenance. The versatility factor of wrought iron is sky-high and hence it is a good material for modern iron railing design for balconies.

Wood Railing Design

Even though wood is expensive and requires regular maintenance, it still remains a top choice for railing designs. Wood adds a rustic, gardeny feel to your railing space. Wood railings require regular care, and are susceptible to pest damage etc. However, wood adds an aesthetic appeal to the space like no other material. Wood works well with steel or wrought iron, but not so much with glass. You can either choose to paint the wooden railing design with the colors of your choice, or go with the raw wood color. Imparting a fancy and exclusive feel to a stair railing design is something that wood can do very well. Wood supports customisation to a high degree. 

Glass Railing Design

Glass railings are quite elegant railings, the material is quite often seen in corporate offices and elite societies alike. Glass railing design has also gained popularity for use in residential areas as it is relatively easier to maintain. With glass railing design however, safety could be an issue. Painting is also a tougher job with a glass railing but not impossible. Smoked and painted glass railings designs are very popular nowadays.

Classic Railing Design

The classic railing made of cement and concrete could also be a good choice for most homeowners on a renovation spree. The classic railing, also known as the Balustrade railing, is an exquisite relic that has kept its appeal since decades. Since it is made of solid and sturdy construction materials, it is very durable but could also get very expensive. However, the classic railing doesn’t require much maintenance or upkeep. 

Mix-and-Match Railing Design

The latest railing design trend is to mix up materials for achieving durability and elegance as a blend. You could experiment with glass and steel, wood and wrought iron, or wrought iron and construction materials (like a railing made of wrought iron but accentuated by stone pillars). Glass and steel is the most common choice for corporate balcony railings, or high-rise residential area railings as well. Wood and wrought iron , or wood and steel has been used majorly in old constructions where it gives a very vintage feel. Latest railing design ideas also include using glass and wrought iron together in large spaces.

Things to consider when you make your railing design choice
 

●    The price point you’re looking at for the railing:

Wrought iron and aluminum are relatively less expensive as compared to wood or steel. The cost of materials is an important item to be factored in before making your final decision.

●    Location:

Is it internal or external? Is your railing going to be exposed to the elements (rain, snow, sun)? This is an important factor for home interior design. Depending on this, the maintenance and repair expectations can be drawn out.

●    Maintenance:

Wood needs more maintenance than glass. Wrought iron requires less maintenance than wood or glass. Stainless Steel is the easiest to maintain.

●    Safety concerns:

Railings are an integral part of your home décor, whether it is a balcony grill design or a stair railing design. Railings essentially protect users of the staircase and the balcony from falling over. Hence, the quality of materials used for these things must be robust. Wrought irons and steel railings are sturdy and long lasting.

●    Design:

Wrought iron and wood allow for heavy customisation like intricate designs, swirls and loops, while glass allows the least flexibility. Cleaning such designs could be a cumbersome task, so stay vigilant on the level of intricacy. The thumb rule is - the simpler the design, the easier it is to clean and maintain.

●    Aesthetics:

Paint color is also an important consideration for design decisions. You can mix and match with various combinations of wood, steel and wrought iron. Glass is a tough nut to crack when it comes to paint but it is not unheard of to have painted glass as a railing design choice.
