Loft Railing | The Details

Loft Railing | Where to buy

Last week, I noticed that someone found my loft railing post from a Google search.  I decided to take a trip down memory lane & reread the post.  It was then that I realized I never actually shared where we purchased our railing!  How embarrassing is that?!  These people are trying to find this awesome railing & I left them hanging!

I’m fixing that today!

The railing is an outdoor kit from The Home Depot.  Our local Home Depot only sold the rail kit, so we had to travel to find the stair railing.  We could have just purchased everything online, but my husband likes to see what he’s buying in person.  After this home renovation, I don’t blame him.  There are so many ways things can be damaged so it’s best to just pick it out yourself.

So why did we decide to use outdoor materials for the stairs?  Honestly, for me, it was the cost.  I started pricing indoor stair railings & then I went over to their outdoor counterparts.  They were so much cheaper!  I also thought that since our house is kind of funky anyway, we could get away with using outdoor materials.  The actual staircase uses the interior tread so it’s a mix of interior & pressure treated materials.  The plan was to stain or paint the posts, but I liked them the way they were.  In the future, we could totally paint or stain them though.

I know this setup won’t work in every house, but I think it looks pretty cool in mine.  Even though these are outdoor kits, it’s so weird to actually see these one someone’s outdoor porch!
