Stainless steel is an ideal choice for residential and commercial bathroom designs.

When designing your home or commercial bathroom there are certain factors that determine what material works best for the locale.  For instance, you need to think about the level of humidity, heat, water and other environmental settings that take a toll on your hardware and aesthetic touches.  If you choose the wrong material then these materials deteriorate and loose its luster due to the existing area conditions.  This entry is to help you make the right decision for your next bathroom project.

Brass is one of these materials referred to above that erode and lose aesthetic appeal after being exposed to humidity.  The humidity triggers a corrosion and aging process to begin; most sealants present will give way overtime too.   This causes the brass to turn into a gunk-growing, greenish shade.  Brass companies claim that polish helps but this is only a temporary fix for it returns back to its ruined state.  On the other hand, stainless steel does not falter, erode or rust under humidity and other extreme weather conditions keeping maintenance, replacement and other upkeep costs down.

Stainless steel does not fade.  Its visual appearance stays fresh, and its physical durability exhibits a longevity other materials cannot muster.  It is easy to clean and has proven itself to be extremely hygienic.  It is a common material utilized in the food processing, hospital and pharmaceutical industries due to its corrosion and rust-resistant traits.  It is also a very versatile metal suitable for a wide array of design preferences completing your bathroom look seamlessly.
