by Pool Builders on 08-01-2011 in Articles

If you want to modernize the look of you home or office, installing stainless steel cabinets and shelves is one of your best options. The professional and clean look of ss always leaves a good impression on anyone. And the kitchen isn't the only area where you can use them, so think about other options around the home as well. So it is not surprising that designers are now more often incorporating steel fixtures into homes and offices. Steel is resistant to rust and corrosion therefore you can safely use it outdoors.

Aside from their professional look, steel cabinets and shelves are also very durable and very easy to maintain. But to get the best results from your stainless steel fixtures and fittings, you do need to know how to maintain them properly.

Where Stainless Steel Shelves and Cabinets Are Used
If you take a look at a modern hotel or restaurant kitchen that uses stainless steel, you will also notice that the cabinets and shelves are also made of the same material. They neatly go together like hands and gloves. Some homeowners also have the same kitchen set-up. But these types of shelves and cabinets can also effectively be used outdoors. An example of where they can be used outdoors would be to store equipment around swimming pools. On large commercial establishments like laboratories, consumer stores and hospitals, they are used to display their supplies (or goods) in a clean and professional way.

Other Uses In The Home
In the home, stainless steel cabinets and shelves can be used in an unlimited way, indoors or outdoors. Mostly you would see them being used alongside steel countertops. You can choose from different designs like free standing or floating shelves. They can also modernize your living area and your work spaces. Your pool area is another ideal place to put these cabinets and shelves. They are the perfect storage areas for your wet swimming gears and pool accessories.

Advantages and Disadvantages
I would suggest that their greatest advantage is their clean and professional appearance. This appearance conveys the perception that whatever is stored in them are clean and free from contamination. But to many people, their greatest disadvantage is their high cost.

More Kitchen Ideas
As well as cabinets and shelves, you may also want to consider stainless steel countertops, steel backsplashes, utensils and more. There are also a whole host of other things to consider, so see our resource box below for more details.
