Once the preserve of kitchens, the corrosion-resistant alloy's robust cleanability is now helping to improve hygiene and safety in commercial and workplace bathrooms
Hygiene requirements in design are set to change in the long term, leading specifiers to seek out increasingly robust materials.
Thanks to its bacteria-resistant properties, stainless steel is a new favourite for commercial and hospitality projects.
It is non-porous and can be cleaned with chemical cleaners without losing any of its benefits. It has high tensile strength, which makes it the most suitable solution for high traffic areas where it can help safeguard health once people return.
Always a commercial choice for kitchens and kitchenware, stainless steel is now being designed into bathrooms partly because of the indoor-outdoor trend, which encouraged continuity of finishes across spaces. When mixed with natural materials such as wood and matt white sanitaryware, stainless steel bathroom fittings and accessories can help create chic contemporary spaces that uphold impressive hygiene levels.
