When choosing furniture of any sort most people tend to focus primarily on style and design. This just might be a mistake because many fail to consider practical solutions such as convenience, functionality and above all, durability. One such product that ticks all of these boxes is stainless steel. It's both unique and versatile and can be mixed and matched with a wide variety of other materials to create something pretty spectacular. Let's take a look at what other advantages stainless steel has over more traditionally used materials.
Probably one of the biggest advantages of stainless steel is that it's non corrosive and stain resistant. This makes it ideal for a wide variety of applications including furniture, kitchens, rails and stairs. The way that it's made means that it comes readily weatherproofed and waterproofed. Therefore it's not necessary to apply any extra protective coatings which would otherwise make the manufacturing process and indeed the finished article more expensive. Moreover, it can be used both inside and out without fear of rust.
By it's very nature stainless steel comes with a high lustre finish which makes it highly attractive to look at. This makes it ideal for contemporary furniture and would fit in perfectly in an industrial theme. Just imagine rows of stainless steel tables and chairs outside on a cafe terrace catching the sunlight. Just how good would they look?
Unlike wood or other materials which can be prone to warping, fading, insects, mould or cracking, stainless steel remains as good as the day you purchased it. A simple wipe over with a damp cloth and a quick polish to get rid of any smear marks is all that's needed to keep it looking as good as new.
We've already mentioned just how stainless steel can be used both inside and out but with the advancements in metal fabrication and the skills of the people that practice it, stainless steel can be fashioned into just about any shape, size or design. This means that it's an incredibly versatile component. From a bespoke fancy chair, or bed with intricate designs to an industrialised kitchen unit, the only thing limiting factor just might be your imagination.
