Stainless Steel vs Chrome
CHROME VS STAINLESS STEEL – WHAT IS PREFERABLE?
Stainless steel is more durable than chrome. It’s corrosion-resistant, scratch-resistant, and tarnish resistant. Depending on the environment, however, it is not completely immune to all stains or wear and tear. It’s often used in environments that need high strength, low cost, and a resistance to corrosion, like in cookware, cutlery, and industrial appliances.
Chrome is often chosen for decorating because it is brighter and shinier than stainless steel. However, because of the polished surface, it can also scratch easily and show fingerprints and dirt easily. With the proper care and upkeep, this can be avoided. However, it’s important to consider when choosing chrome – will there be many people touching it, like children? Will it be used heavily and at risk of scratching?
Stainless steel is easier to keep clean and very durable. Even with heavy use, it is still scratch resistant and won’t dent easily. If you expect your furniture or fixtures to get heavy use, stainless steel is often the better option.
