What Houzz contributors are saying:
DurabilityWhile steel is naturally an extremely durable material, alloys can be even more durable. Stainless steel is a mix of chromium (and other elements in varying proportions) and steel; the result is a highly resilient, corrosion-resistant surface. When exposed to air, the chromium creates an invisible oxide layer on the surface, which protects the steel. It also gives it the characteristic deep luster.
3. Sleek and simple hardware. In modern kitchens you’ll most often see C-channel hardware that’s integrated into the cabinet, as well as tubular pulls or flat linear pulls. Lots of times the horizontal lines of the cabinets will be accentuated by cabinet hardware running the full length of the drawers and doors.
