Stair Design Ideas - 9 Examples Of Built-In Handrails

 

Recently, we’ve been seeing more homes and buildings that have built-in handrails to accompany the stairs. They look great and take up less space than typical handrails that are mounted on the wall instead of being built-in.

Let’s have a look at 9 different examples of stairs that have built-in handrails…
