@abstractousYep, this happens with a fair number of the stair rails in the game. Some of them behave, but lots don't. Without any cc or mods. Way back before the latest patches, it's been a thing.

"I would like to see the option of auto banisters as we have with bunk beds."

Wouldn't it be nice?

 

Edited to add: I had no idea this was supposed to be fixed. Ever. Some of my stair rails always behave, and some of them never do.

Could anyone experiencing this issue possibly share a save file with me where you've seen it occur? You can DM me the link to your save. Uploading the affected lot to the Gallery would also work. Thanks so much for the help!

@SimGuruNickThank you. I've got one in the Gallery: Potters Splay. There's a strategically placed painting that camouflages it a bit, but the stair rail is still coming through the wall.

 

I'm all updated with the latest patch.

 

It's the Selvadoranian stair rail in there. I tried replacing it with a well-behaved stair rail and then trying the original Selvadoranian stair rail again. No dice.

Seeing the stair railings pop through or stick out (however you want to put it) through the walls is HIGHLY annoying. But it's always been a thing since I can remember. At least on console anyways (PS4 PRO). It's super tacky and unfortunately I feel it'll never be addressed or fixed.. I can't remember a time I HADN'T seen it in the game. Sure would be nice if this was added to the "Laundry List". That and adding some spiral staircases which for some reason we don't have after 7+ years..
