Why You Should Consider Steel Cabinets

November 2, 2018

The contemporary chic is all about a style so sleek, it outdoes all the heavy elements of older, more conventional kitchen styles. A minimalistic, clean look is desired by most people today—millennials especially—such that the look is almost industrial. You’ll know the look from commercial and professional kitchens: clean, shiny, and sleek. Steel hardware—cabinets, countertops, knobs, handles, etc.—are ideally used to complement the aesthetic. Their sleek and shiny visage makes them the perfect accent for contemporary tones so prevalent in the modern style. This blog is all about why the steely look is so ideal and desirable.

It’s Durable

Steel is malleable and ductile—and by default will last for a time much longer than the average wood cabinet will. Stainless steel keeps moisture at bay which means that it is resistant to oxidation, and is not susceptible to corrosion. It is also great for people who want to keep pests and insects away from the contents of their cabinets, which steel does effectively. Additionally, steel can also withstand high temperature.

It’s Chic

It’s not like steel is available only in one size: there’s so much fun to be had with steel and in the end the overall look of your space will be clean, reflective, and minimal. Clutter can be avoided and the space by virtue of being clean will also give the impression of looking bigger.

Low Maintenance

Stainless steel is easy to clean and relatively easy to maintain. So it won’t rot, it won’t corrode, and it certainly won’t need much scrubbing! Great option for people with little time on their hands. Since the metal is so shiny, even when slightly dirty the kitchen will give off the “clean” look so loved by minimalists in the modern world.

And Finally, It’s in Vogue

For new home owners who’re looking to set up a new kitchen entirely, what better than opt for the steely, shiny, and savvy look accorded by steel hardware in a kitchen? It is in fashion, after all, and it doesn’t seem like the trend is going out of fashion anytime soon. The material is durable, low-maintenance, cost-effective, and long-lasting—all in addition to being stylish. Steel hardware is a great way to make a statement about your personality, and works great with bold, unconventional colors.


Not as difficult to use as solid wood, stainless steel works great in homes where children are out and about. This makes steel a well-rounded, wholesome option for hardware.
