When selecting railing hardware for your business, consider using decorative brackets to support your railing in an attractive way. Chances are, no matter what type of railing material you choose, your railing will be easily complemented by handsome brass, instilling a refined elegance in your railing structure. Brass brackets are timeless, allowing you to create old fashioned and modern looks, depending on your own personal preference.

Decorative Brackets

For railing with an antique look, consider selecting brass brackets with a darker finish. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on some genuine antique brackets, use these as support for your railing system. It is important to note that most brackets can be attached directly to the wall. For heavier metal railing, it is likely that you will need to install an anchor to help support your bracket, especially in situations when you are working with thin drywall surfaces.

Modern brackets are available with a high gloss lacquer, and are also available in a variety of finish colors. Modern brackets are typically more streamlined than the traditional versions, and may be too simple for those with more extravagant tastes. Most contemporary hardware adheres to the philosophy of "less is more," making it a point not to distract from the railing.

Finally, for those who want rail brackets that stand out and get noticed, attempt to seek out highly detailed brackets. These brackets tend to me more expensive, but many agree that the higher price is worth it. Intricacies and fine details are beautifully showcased by solid brass, allowing the light to pick up on multifaceted designs for an effect that is truly stunning.
