A balustrade consists of a row of evenly spaced small columns (balusters) topped by a handrail. Found lining many staircases, balconies, porches, and terraces, a balustrade can be present in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Balustrades serve multiple purposes- to provide safety, to prevent someone from falling and to cordon off areas for privacy- all while making a design statement.
