Different Stair Parts Explained

Different Stair Parts Explained

Whether you’re replacing an individual part or completely overhauling your staircase, shopping for stair parts can be somewhat overwhelming. 

But it doesn’t have to be. 

When you have a deeper understanding of what each part does, transforming your home becomes a quick and simple task.

The Stair Crazy team have put together a guide explaining the most popular stair parts to make things a little bit easier. 


Newel posts 

Newel posts are a structural and aesthetic feature of a staircase. 

They are the number one way to switch up a staircase and can easily transform a space, all while supporting the bannister above. 

The oak newel posts we stock here at Stair Crazy are hard-wearing, scratch-resistant, and always on-trend. 

The best part is, you can purchase our newel posts in solid oak or primed white - whether you want to embrace the natural grain of the oak or paint it to match the rest of your home’s interior, we have an option for you. 


Metal stair spindles 

A popular way of updating a staircase is by swapping out the spindles. 

Metal stair spindles are an easy-to-maintain, modern alternative to traditional wooden spindles. They spark intrigue and create the illusion of a much larger space, especially if the style allows light to flow through. 

Sitting in between the base and handrail, you can add extra drama to your hallway with metal stair spindles, or opt for a simpler design to enhance your minimalistic decor.

Combining traditional oak with metal stair spindles adds a 21st-century twist to any home, reinventing your staircase without breaking the bank.


Oak handrails 

You may not think handrails have much of an impact on the look of your staircase, but they really do. 

Oak handrails are not only a safety feature, but they are also a way of adding personality to your home. 

You can choose from a variety of styles when it comes to oak handrails - here at Stair Crazy, you can pick the shape, thickness, and finish according to your preferred look. 

As with all oak stair parts, you can enhance the natural grain with varnish, or paint in your chosen colour to compliment the surrounding woodwork. 


Newel caps 

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly way to enhance your staircase, newel caps are the ideal option for you. 

Available in oak or white primed, newel caps are the perfect finishing touch to any flight, and are easy to switch out if you fancy a new style. 

Opt for a flat design, or something more detailed to create a point of interest at the top and bottom of your staircase.
