Black Cable Railings – Interior Design Ideas

Modern home balcony with black cable railing overlooking great room with floor to ceiling windows

Innovative Interior designs featuring black cable railings.

Black cable railings look attractive with any home decorating style including modern, minimalist, rustic, nautical, farmhouse, and industrial. They can be attached to metal or wood railing posts and stair stringers. Black cables and fittings have a dark-muted appearance when compared to traditional shiny stainless steel cables and fittings. Black is a neutral color and pairs well with the white color pallet in trendy modern farmhouse-style homes which characteristically have dark trim. It also complements natural wood tones, bolder colors, and rustic decor. When you’re not looking for the shiny glitz of stainless steel cables, black is a perfect choice.

Balconies with Black Cable Railings

Catwalk with black cable railings overlooking kitchen and expansive mountain views.

Maintain Mountain Views

Floor-to-ceiling windows maximize the mountain views from every floor of this home. Creating an open catwalk to connect various rooms on the second floor maintains the flow of natural light and allows for magnificent views of the mountains. Our Ithaca-style railing system is paired with a bleached white oak top rail that matches the flooring and ceiling. The black cable railings complement the black decor fixtures found throughout the home. The expansive windows create a light open airy feeling bringing the outdoors indoors for enjoyment year-round.

Modern Farmhouse Balcony

Overlooking the great room an upper-level balcony connects two separate sections of the home while maintaining an open spacious aesthetic. This farmhouse combines rustic wood features and refined elements. Since the balcony is situated adjacent to expansive windows it was important to choose a railing system that would not block the view. Our Ithaca-style railing system was chosen for the slim design of the posts. The posts are powder coated black, with black cables and fittings.
