Newel Tops

These crafty little decorative features are added to the posts of your staircase, giving them that final finishing touch. They can then be painted or stained to match the rest of your staircase. Note that they can only be made from timber, so are unsuitable for use with stainless steel posts.

“The details are not the details. They make the design”.- Charles Eames (American furniture designer and architect)

We have a number of options to choose from, including:

  • Suits many staircase styles (namely classic and traditional)
  • Circular tops are generally round balls sat atop the post
  • Square tops can be as ornate or simple as you want
