Decorative Feature

Gowling Stairs understands that posts in Melbourne (also known as newel posts) perform more than just the functional purposes of marking the ends of your staircase and supporting the balustrade or handrails – they can also form a decorative feature of the structure.

Range of Materials

We are able to provide our clients with a range of timber and stainless steel posts that can be worked into any staircase design. Our timber posts can also be decorated with caps, beading and other additions that can add to their detail and overall aesthetic appeal.

Areas We Service

Gowling Stairs is able to provide posts for all areas of Victoria. Some of the suburbs we service include: Balwyn, Glen Waverley, Doncaster, Camberwell, Hawthorn, Kew, Caulfield, Bentleigh, Brighton and Toorak.
