Consider Stainless Steel for Railings for Renovation or Building

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.



I've thought a lot about renovation, including re-doing the railings. We we have a staircase that could absolutely use some updated ones, but I've never considered stainless steel railing systems, until now. Whether you are renovating the interior of an office building or your modern or contemporary design of your home, stainless steel railing systems present a sleek, eye-catching safety system that can elevate the opinion of both your visitors and occupants.

The reliability of the stainless steel systems bring long-lasting safety considerations: They not only last a long time, they are also very durable. Stainless steel is among the strongest metals, pound for pound, of any available on the market today. They also gift the user with a low cost overhead.

Whether you want a beveled appearance or one of smooth lines only, stainless steel can meld beauty with functionality without degrading any intent or result.

Versatility is a buzz word in these glossy handrails. You can integrate this metal with glass or wood, for instance, and never worry about loss of aesthetics or functionality. Choose your type of bracing, embracing a graceful curved support or a no-frills approach with a straight-line brace. Opt for a swivel-based attachment or a fixed-position attachment for maximum functionality, all with matching connectors that complement your interior intentions.

As an added bonus, many stainless steel configurations for stairs often increases resale value over the older wrought iron railing systems in many markets, proving you don't need to spend a lot to gain a lot in the long run.

Cool! I wouldn't have thought of stainless steel railings either! Right now we don't really have a lot that we would need it for, but if we do I will keep this in mind.

Stainless Steel!! Hmmmm never in my life would I have thought of that. It sounds like they would last a lifetime though.

Yes they would be great to have as railings in our front steps which is a flight of 14 stairs. Stainless steel are amazing metal product.

I would think that stainless steel railings would be a great idea and would be more durable too. We are actually looking to install new railings in the stairs on the second floor of our house.

Pat Hatt said...

They would never need to be replaced, hopefully, works for me

Teresa Moody said...

That would be a cool idea for making your home look better.

Pam said...

These would be great for my deck. I am in need of some railings for our stairs.

Corinne Schmitt said...

I didn't realize stainless steel held value better than iron. Will definitely have to remember this if we ever install railing.

Cynthia Landrie said...

I never thought of stainless steel either. It seems rather modern, but I can see using it for the strength it offers.

Now I know what to get if I ever need to install railings in my house. I've always thought of iron but this makes a lot more sense and might look a lot better too. :)

Very interesting and informative Rosey!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I wonder how they would look on my front porch. We need new railings and it sounds like stainless steel would last forever.

Melinda Dunne said...

Stainless Steel for railings sound really neat. I like the fact that it lasts. I have wood railings and some of them need to be replaced. I will have to look into stainless steel when we go to replace them.

Theresa said...

I know that my husband would love those in our home. Anything that looks futuristic or very modern is right up his alley.

This is very good information.
I've always loved and admired stainless steel. I even prefer it when my drinking bottles are made with it.

The Lucky Wife said...

Interesting idea... never heard of using it for railings before either!

Masshole Mommy said...

That is a great idea.

HungryLittleGirl said...

I love stainless steel because it stays good like forever! Great idea!

Julie Maloney said...

I agree, I have stainless steel for neatly everything in the house, looks sharp!

Melanie S said...

I didn't know stainless steel was better than iron. This looks nice too :)

We should put in one on some side steps we have. Right now that whole area needs to be reworked. The neighbors have a big tree that is preventing us from wanting to do anything with it though. I'd love to replace the retaining wall on that side, but I know the tree roots will be a problem.

huh, i think it would def look pretty and shiny....smiles.
