Everyone has mostly seen stainless steel in refrigerators, ovens, and dishwashers for decades. But there are additional ways to use stainless steel in interior design to enhance the beauty of your home.
1. Advantages of Stainless Steel
Stainless steel is often described as “self-healing” because its composition causes it to react with oxygen in the environment in a process called oxidation. This type of steel doesn’t corrode. Its non-porous surface makes it naturally resistant to bacteria. This means that germs don’t soak in. Stainless steel holds up well to a variety of anti-microbial cleaning agents. The cold work hardening properties of many stainless steels can be used in design to reduce material thicknesses and reduce weight and costs.
