Originally used in Assyrian palaces, these posts are full of history and tradition. Balusters and newels were applied to architectural use starting in late 15th century renaissance period. The first architectural use of these items was for balcony designs and eventually flourished into grand staircases and other uses. Newels are used at the base of staircases and for intermediate posts at the landings and top while balusters are slightly smaller and used for extra hand rail support on each stair. These are easy to use and install for the homeowner or contractor. Simply attach the railing to the baluster or newel and voila! You have a new and improved home design.
