Before & After: Changing a solid balustrade for spindles
Solid balustrades are a throwback to an era of home design that most architects and homebuilders have thankfully left in the past. Solid balustrades essentially enclose the staircase as a separate dark space in the home. By opening up the balustrade using spindles, increased light flow will create the impression of additional space especially with lighter timbers such as oak or whites.
The spacing between the spindles allows a glimpse of the area beyond creating a link between the floors.

Some of the images may be taken at different stages of completion with carpets/decoration left unfinished.
