A staircase railing of clear glass panels, outlined and mounted in a simple metal frame, is minimalist chic. But it also keeps a small space, one that could feel dark and crowded, light and airy. In this example, without the transparent panels, the subtle under-stair lighting would be lost on occupants of the room.
This modern metal rail picks up the black treads in the staircase and really pops off the stark white walls of this entryway. It is the perfect complement in a contemporary black-and-white decorating scheme.
