Craftsman 5-1/2" Square Cap Newel Post


Contemporary newel posts with square caps are a popular choice for modern staircase designs. These newel posts provide a sleek and clean look, adding a touch of sophistication to the overall staircase aesthetic. The square cap on top of the newel post adds a distinct visual element and serves as a finishing touch.

When it comes to materials, contemporary newel posts with square caps can be found in various options. Here are a couple commonly used materials:

  1. Wood: Wood is a timeless choice for newel posts. Hardwoods like oak, maple, or walnut are often used to create modern designs with square caps. These posts can be stained or painted to match the desired color scheme.
  2. Combination: Some contemporary newel posts combine different materials to create a unique look. For example, a combination of metal and wood or metal and glass can be used, where the square cap is made of one material while the body of the post is made of another.

When selecting contemporary newel posts with square caps, it's important to consider the overall design and style of your staircase and the surrounding decor. The choice of wood species should complement the overall aesthetic and create a cohesive look. It's also recommended to consult with a professional designer or contractor who can provide guidance and help you make the best choice for your specific project.
