NEWEL POST STYLES
Newels are the vertical posts which support the handrail of a staircase. They are usually installed at the bottom, top, and on any landings of a staircase. Half posts are also available, and are often used where a handrail runs into a wall.

Although their primary purpose is structural, newels have long been adorned with decorative trim and designed with different architectural styles. We have seven different styles available, each with various trim and skirting options to suit the architecture of any space.
