Give your staircase a makeover with metal spindles
Steel is an economical material to use for spindles, as it’s very strong and durable, and more affordable than cast iron. If you like the look of wrought iron stairs but want something a bit more up to date, steel is an excellent alternative. Steel spindles can be simple or ornamental, classic or contemporary – the choice is all yours. And with over 25 years of experience in designing and installing metal staircases, Abbott-Wade are well-equipped to advise you on all the practicalities.
Metal spindles are incredibly versatile, available in a range of shapes and finishes for a truly bespoke staircase. Whether you’re designing a brand new flight of stairs or saving money with a staircase refurbishment, opting for steel spindles ensures an eye-catching final product. All types of homes and businesses can benefit from steel spindles, regardless of their décor themes.
Forged steel spindles – designs and finishes
Our range of forged steel stair spindles have been expertly handcrafted into beautiful shapes. Twisted or sleek, basket or fluted, plain or painted – which steel spindle design do you prefer?
The team of staircase specialists at Abbott-Wade can work with you to create the ideal finish for your forged steel spindles. Popular colours for painted steel spindles include black, gold, and silver, which can help to make your property seem more upmarket and impress every visitor. Here’s a little more information about each of these finishes.
Silver metal spindles
Probably the first colour that comes to mind when you think of steel spindles is silver. Our silver metal staircase spindles pair beautifully with any style of décor, and look particularly stunning when combined with painted white or black timber.
You don’t need to just stop at the spindles when incorporating steel into your staircase design though. We also have silver metal newel caps, end caps, handrails, and brackets if you’d like to go for an all-out metal look. Depending on the style of silver metal staircase you choose, this could look industrial or contemporary. Take a look at our gallery photos for inspiration.
Black metal spindles
One of the most popular colours for our forged steel spindles is black. Their classic and bold styling makes our black metal spindles the perfect way to finish off your dream staircase project. There are many designs of black steel spindles to choose from, including both traditional and contemporary styles.
In additional to our black metal spindles, we have black metal newel caps and end caps, as well as black handrails and brackets. So, whether you’d like to combine a wooden staircase with black steel spindles, or opt to have the entire staircase made from metal, the choice is yours.
Gold metal spindles
Our painted gold steel spindles work particularly well when paired with oak handrails and stair treads.
Complementing any style of décor, from neutral through to bold, these matt gold spindles will look striking in any home.
As with the black and silver options, in addition to gold metal spindles, we also have a range of gold newel caps, end caps, gold handrails and brackets for you to choose from.
