Introduction to Porch Balusters (Spindles)


Product Listings | Info (at Porch Guide) | Usage Photos | Previous Page

Balusters are the vertical members used to fill the space below Handrails.

Balusters Usage Photo Frequently referred to as Spindles, Balusters add physical and visual support to your Handrails. Often necessary for safety, Balusters also beautify a porch in a very elegant and traditional manner!
Shop All Balusters
Our Balusters are available in both wood and synthetic materials. Baluster size and/or type is mostly a matter of personal choice. For example, do you want a light and airy balustrade or do you prefer something more substantial?

In the photo at left, our Porch Posts anchor the balustrade (Handrail, Subrail, Turned Balusters, and Sloped-top Bottom Rail.)

Turned Balusters are very pleasing when spaced properly. Plain Square and Sawn Balusters provide a different but still traditional look, as the next two photos illustrate.

Plain Square Balusters Usage Photo
Sawn Balusters Usage Photo

The left photo above shows Plain Square Balusters on a front porch. This is very traditional and the relatively close Baluster spacing is very pleasing to the eye.

The right photo above features Sawn Balusters installed edge-to-edge. Sawn Balusters can be spaced apart for a slightly different look. You can also mix Sawn and Plain Square Balusters.

For exterior projects it is very important to install your Balusters using Sloped-top Bottom Rail. We can notch the bottoms of your Balusters to perfectly fit this Rail.
Balustrade Panels Usage Photo
For an even more unique look, use our Balustrade Panels, as shown in the last photo.

There are a number of considerations when choosing and installing the right Balusters for your porch. At our Baluster Info page you will find information on height and size considerations and much more.
