What Is – A Finial

A finial is the ornamental top end of a newel post which can be carved, shaped or turned.

Typically designed in spherical shapes, however many different contemporary designs boast all sorts of shapes of varying sizes.

Finial Installation Images

Finials come in all styles, materials and, even some, in unique and bespoke designs. It all depends on the effect you are after, the staircase handrail and newel material then finally, it can be interchangeable with a screw thread fitting.

At Precision Timber Handrails we have designed and installed many staircases and have a wide range of finials to inspire you to get the one that fits your brief. We can also do bespoke designs if you have something unique in mind.

On our Pinterest account we have set up our images boards around our feature pieces and galleries. These images below are from our finial board (showing images not from our own showcase only), please click to see others and browse our other boards.
