Railings are not only functional elements in a structure, but also contribute to a great extent in enhancing the aesthetics. Since the dawn of settlement, railings have been an integral part of a structure. In addition to accentuating the space, they help in safeguarding the users. The materials and patterns for a railing differ based on the function of a space.

While railings have standard dimensions attributed for them, when it comes to railing design, no rule of thumb follows. It can range from a simplistic pattern to an elaborate one, made using a single material or multiple. Railings find purpose in balconies, staircases, house fronts, porches, as parapets, and more. The patterns of the railing design can help in altering the overall aesthetics of a space.
