iron balusters: solid vs hollow

11 years ago

I'm redoing our stair treads, risers, handrails and balusters, and putting in iron twist & basket balusters. I'm shopping online and have found both solid and hollow versions, with the hollow being less expensive, of course.

My question: is there a reason to choose one over the other? The pics all look good on both, but unless you touch and feel it's hard to tell exactly what they'll look and feel like. It seems like hollow would be easier to cut off. But will they look cheaper?

Has anyone installed one or the other? Appreciate any help/opinions you can offer.
