FAQ: How to Fix a Handrail to a Newel Post
Here at Blueprint Joinery, we pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge and expertise that accompanies our fantastic product range of joinery essentials for around the home. One of the areas that have proven most popular with our customers is staircase parts and stair cladding, and we don’t blame them!
Stair cladding is an innovative and inexpensive way of transforming the aesthetic of your staircase without the need to replace it entirely. With your stairs looking brand, spanking new, you’d be doing your home décor a disservice by ignoring the handrail and bannister, but luckily for you, we’ve got you covered.
We stock handrails, newels, and spindles that can be installed to give your staircase that little extra oomph that you’ve been looking for, completing your stairs in style with ease. All of our staircase parts are available in a variety of styles to suit your newly updated stairs and existing interior décor.
If that sounds right up your street, then you’ll be pleased to know that thanks to our Universal Handrail Fixing Kit, it could not be easier to install yourself, with just a drill and a steady hand. The kit can be used with all types of timber.
We’ve got the low-down and ‘how-to’ instructions for you, right here too.
