At Stairs and Stairways, you can purchase directly one of the many stock or custom newel posts listed in the Buy-Now Section of our website. The newel post is a very important structural member of the staircase; they are support poles that help bear the weight of the railing and secure it to the rest of the stairway. However, just because it is structural, doesn't mean that it cannot provide a sense of style to the staircase. You may choose to have your staircase begin with a stately box panel newel or the smooth flowing lines of a volute with a turned newel located under it. Stairs and Stairways can provide you with many options when it comes to selecting your newel from stock designs to custom turned and box newels. Let us know what you have in mind and we will find the right newel to match. At Stairs and Stairways you will be provided with professional full-time stair designers to certify that your orders are correct.
