Steps can present a challenge to someone with limited mobility, which is why handrails are so crucial to the entrance of your home.
When installing new railings, it’s important to keep safety and convenience at the top of your mind, and put yourself in the shoes of someone living with mobility issues. Each material has its strengths and weaknesses, so it’s all about finding the rail that matches your space and special needs.
Your weight, aesthetic preferences, and budget will come into play as you explore interior rails. More materials make sense for interior rails, as weather damage is not a factor. These materials include: wood, wrought iron, aluminum, and stainless steel. You can change the look of some materials so they blend in with your space, for example wood, or wrought iron rail.

Many of the same factors will be important as you consider exterior rails: Your weight, the design of your house, and budget. The most important factor for these rails is their exposure to the outdoors. Weather conditions in your area will affect the required maintenance, so resilient materials like stainless steel may be useful. The surface under your rail will also impact the choice of materials for the rail itself. For example, a wooden staircase will require a different setup than a cement staircase.
