Iron balusters are available in 4 attractive finishes:
Scroll Iron Balusters
These iron balusters are unique and add that extra spark to complete your staircase project. With 3 different designs to choose from, the balusters really liven up the room.
Iron Belly Balusters
Belly Balusters look just like their name. They curve outwards give your staircase or balcony a more open and spacious feel.
Twist and Basket Iron Balusters
Twist Balusters and Basket Balusters are great for mixing together. There are many options and designs you can make with them. For a simple, classic look these balusters are the way to go.
Hollow Iron Balusters
Balusters that are hollow weigh less than solid iron balusters. Because the inside of these balusters are hollowed out, shipping and transporting them is easier.
Knuckle Iron Balusters
Knuckle balusters have a decorative piece that look like a little a knuckle. This piece is actually adjustable, so you can move the knuckle up and down on the baluster, wherever you think it looks best.
Ribbon Iron Baluster Series
The Ribbon Balusters resemble the Twist Balusters except the twisted part is wider, just like a ribbon. These are an elegant upgrade to the more common twist or basket iron balusters.
