Steel may not be the first material you think about for your home but it does have many fantastic applications and benefits.
Steel is classed as environmentally friendly because it is often made from salvaged scrap and is fully recyclable.
In a home, along with being extremely practical, it can also look modern and contemporary.
At the Blake Group in Edinburgh, we fabricate steel for homes on a daily basis. Sometimes it is for the homeowner and often it is to fulfil large contracts for the commercial housebuilder, contractor or tradesman.
We can provide structural steelwork such as steel lintels but today we want to discuss steel that you can see in your home.
Steel is perfect for external use as it does not rust or become water damaged. It is tough and durable. It can also be coated or painted to suit the style of your home. Perfect applications include outdoor staircases, balconies, gates and railings.
A kitchen can look smart and clean with steel backsplashes or even worktops.
We can make staircases and balustrades in steel or in a mixture of steel, wood and glass. We have many years of experience and have made all types of staircase including spiral stairs, ones with double or single flights and ones with straight and curved landings. Our stairs are not only sturdy and practical but they meet all safety standards and can be made to look beautiful too.
Steel is often used both indoors and outdoors in the design of the home to make it stand out from the crowd. Architects will add metal plating or grills to the outside of a building for design purposes. We have even created stunning metal sculptures for designers.
Get inventive and imagine how steel could transform your home.
The Metal Centre in Edinburgh is part of the Blake Group and is open for the general public, tradesmen and small business clients. We hope we can help you create the home of your dreams.
