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…
1. In this home, the handrail has been cut out of the material that it’s made from.

2. This wood and steel handrail is built into a section of the wall for a more industrial look.

4. This built-in handrail that runs the length of the stairs does double-duty as a light source.
