What Are Newels?

The Newels and Balusters are the most important aesthetic part of the staircase. Newels are starting points in a sense - stately newels are usually set on the first or second step of the staircase which is larger than all of the others. The right newels are a great note to start off a staircase with.

The mood of the aesthetic of the overall staircase also comes from how the railing ends on the newel - is it curved around in some way? Does it curve up or down? Is the aesthetic straight? Maybe it widens at the end - the choice is up to you and the newel will add a great platform to set the tone of the aesthetic. Newels are to be described as the capital letter at the beginning of the sentence, the thing that is going to bring all of the needed attention to your staircase.
