Powder Coatings and Beautiful Homes

Posted by on 8 August 2017

Most of us aspire to own a beautiful home, and even if we’re lucky enough to own one, we still like to admire others. Powder coatings can contribute in a big way to the gorgeous aesthetics of a house, especially in terms of beautifully finished doors and windows It really doesn’t matter what your chosen style is either. From the ultra-modern, with sleek, smooth finishes in flat mattes or anodized effect silvers to the traditionally styled with time honored shades, rustic looking metal effects bronzes and light textures, powder coatings add that extra special something to the final curb appeal.

And that’s just the good looks – we haven’t even started on the performance! Tough, durable and way more scratch resistant than liquid coatings, architectural powders are designed to offer protection against all sorts of nasties.

The joy of a new home is certainly special when everything is shiny, new and fresh out the box. Powder coatings are also designed to hold their color and gloss to within strict specifications, to ensure that the dream house stays dreamy for as long as possible!

That holiday home on the beach with the sound of waves breaking gently over the shore drifting through the windows on a cool breeze? Sounds great, but that house is also subject to the effects of salt air and humidity, which can cause corrosion in a big way. The architectural powders that are protecting the windows and making them look fantastic are also designed to pass strict salt spray tests.

No one wants their view out to a carefully landscaped backyard or brightly flowering window boxes spoiled by dirty windows or smeared glass, so good upkeep is important. That upkeep often means the use of chemicals, even if it’s something as simple as window detergent. So it goes without saying that architectural powders are also tested to provide resistance against detergents just like that.

Maybe your beautiful home is a high-rise apartment with a ‘to-die-for’ city view? City loving is fun, but just like we feel the effects of all those bars and restaurants so close to hand, eventually coatings can also feel the effects of the pollution generated in our cities unless they’ve been carefully manufactured to resist. Check for architectural powders.

And while we snuggle down under the comforter, safe in our beautiful home, we can sleep peacefully knowing powder coatings designed for use in our homes are also significantly more sustainable than liquid coatings, so we also made the environmentally responsible choice.

We have curated a range of images of impressive homes from around the world that will all use powder coatings in some shape or form as part of their build. Check them out...
