Three Reasons Not To Overlook Stainless Steel Stair Railing

by Ramona Lawrence

When it's time to upgrade the stair railing in a home, wood and wrought iron are the options most homeowners consider. Don't overlook stainless steel. Stainless steel doesn't just offer a modern appeal; it also comes with a number of different benefits that you don't want to overlook.


Stainless steel is a highly durable material. If you have a large family, this can come in handy. For example, when your little ones are dragging their toys up and down the stairs, you don't have to worry about the surface of the railing getting scratched, which isn't the case when it comes to wood or iron.

In addition to being more scratch resistant, the tensile strength of stainless steel is also greater than options like wood. If you have little ones that frequently lean on the railings, you will have greater confidence that the steel won't break under tension, keeping your family safer.


In terms of maintenance, stainless steel railings offer a number of advantages. First, stainless steel has a naturally glossy finish. Even if it isn't clean, the glossy finish helps mask this and keeps it looking good. Secondly, when it comes to cleaning stainless steel, the process is as simple as using a stainless steel wipe to gently clean the surface.

When cleaning a surface like wrought iron, the process is far more involved. Iron is basically a dust magnet, which will require you to thoroughly dust the wrought even before you can deep clean it. With all the demands of your personal and professional life, keeping things as simple as possible is key.  


Stainless steel railings can also offer a great deal of versatility. Although they are most often associated with modern home design, steel railings can be constructed in a variety of different designs to match just about any home style.

If you prefer a more traditional look, stainless steel railings can be designed in a newel post and picket style. If you want a railing that really stands out, you can have a railing designed with abstract shapes and patterns. Whatever your needs, stainless steel can be designed to suit your design goals.

When you're ready to update the stair railings in your home, don't be afraid to think outside the box. Make sure you aren't overlooking the benefits that a stainless steel design can bring to your home. An installation expert can help you.
