Every part of a staircase is necessary. Not only for the structure but also for the overall look. Newel posts are the perfect feature to enhance and update your staircase, in a way that compliments your current interior choices.
Stair newel posts sit in a staircase at the top or bottom of the balustrade. The cladded faces add style and structure to leave a seamless finish that supports the banister.
Oak is famous for being a hard-wearing, scratch-resistant material that never goes out of fashion. This is why the oak newel posts we have available here at Stair Crazy are the perfect addition to any home.
Every home is different, which is why we offer all of our oak newel posts with a lacquered or unfinished appearance, depending on whether you want to embrace the natural shade of oak or alter the colour with paint or varnish.
The best part about oak staircase parts is how easy they are to switch up. With the proper prep, you can paint and stain your oak newel post to match the surrounding woodwork. If you choose ‘unfinished’ when selecting your new staircase part you can paint them to match your current decor.
Our solid oak range can withstand even the heaviest use - that’s right, it will even last through the angry, stomping teenager phase. With the right care and maintenance, oak newel posts are guaranteed to last.
Although newel posts are traditionally used to support the staircase when there is a change in direction, they can make an interesting focal point in your hallway. You can match up the oak finish with the rest of your woodwork or use it as a contrasting talking point in your home.
Staircases don’t have to be boring. Our collection of styles gives you the chance to express your personality in your home in a decorative yet timeless way. For an additional cost, we also have an optional polyurethane lacquer to make your staircase stand out.

Newel Post FAQs
Newel posts are part of the main architecture of any staircase. They form the main structure and hold the other staircase parts - like the handrails and baserails - in place.
Stair newel posts are a great way to put a unique spin on any traditional staircase. You can get them in a variety of materials, finishes and styles to match your current interior themes or stand out against the surrounding woodwork.
Without a newel post, other staircase parts won’t have anything to anchor on to, meaning they’re more likely to bend and break from day-to-day use.
Here at Stair Crazy, we offer timeless oak newel posts that will perfectly finish off your staircase, while providing strength and structure. Combined with a newel cap, newel posts play an integral part of any staircase, both in style and structure.

This is a great way to add some personality to your home, without having to completely renovate your flight - making it a much more cost-effective way of updating your hallway.
While you can switch them out yourself, we always recommend contacting a professional if you’re not confident when it comes to DIY projects. This ensures anything installed is done properly and safely - installing stair parts incorrectly could lead to further, costly problems.

It’s very common to paint areas of your staircase. You can opt for neutral tones or shades that compliment the surrounding woodwork and walls or make a statement with a bold colour that contrasts the rest.
However, to make sure you do it right, you need to take your time and create an even base beforehand for a smooth finish.
Sand down any existing paint or varnish and dust, before wiping over with a damp cloth. This removes any residue or dirt to guarantee a professional look that lasts.
To keep all edges neat, you can put tape and sheets on the surfaces you don’t want to paint - this is especially important if you’re using a different colour for the rest of your flight. Start at the top of the stairs and apply a primer.
When dry, it’s time to paint. Allow each layer to dry properly and build up the colour until opaque.
