3 Areas to Install Stainless Steel Balustrade

Posted on

Stainless steel is arguably one of the most popular materials for handrail and balustrades. They are low-maintenance and corrosion-resistant, and they retain their appearance without much help. That said, many homeowners think that the only place they can install stainless steel balustrades is on stairways. This is not the case because there are plenty of other areas in your home that could use the elegance of steel balustrades. 


Most homes that have balconies tend to settle for ordinary metal. This can be attributed to the belief that balconies are small spaces and not many people pay attention to them. However, balconies are a critical part of a house's exterior, and they must look visually pleasing. Stainless steel balustrades are an excellent addition to the balcony, especially if they have a polished design. The reflective surface of polished stainless steel balustrades produces a shine that enhances the exterior aesthetics of your balcony. The best part is that stainless steel balustrades can withstand the elements — direct sunlight and rain — pretty well. Therefore, you do not have to worry about corrosion issues.


Decorating a patio can be challenging, and that is why most homeowners tend to go overboard with the patio design as well as the furniture. Such an approach takes a lot of time and money, not to mention the compromise of uniqueness. The elegance that stainless steel balustrades offer means that you don't have to worry about your patio design or what goes in it. A simple rectangular or circular patio might appear bland if the railings are made from wood, but the shiny stainless steel balustrades can transform the patio's look immediately. Moreover, you don't need expensive, fancy patterns on the balustrades to attain a unique look. You can install the railings as they are, and your patio will still stand out from the rest. Add simple and cheap aluminium chairs for a complete look.

Swimming Pool

Summer is a great time to share with family and friends, especially if you have a swimming pool. However, nobody feels okay inviting people to a swimming pool with rusty railings. Stainless steel balustrades offer an opportunity to revamp the look of your swimming pool even if it is several years old. The best part is that you can decide to surround the entire pool with stainless steel balustrades with a combination of glass panels for an even more elegant look. Alternatively, you can install the balustrades as a ladder leading into the swimming pool.
