Great Idea to Buy Quality Stair Rods?
If you’re looking for a way to bring an extra touch of life and colour to your home, why not consider stair rods? These can bring elegance, style and charm – all without breaking the bank… provided you make the right choice.
The reason for that is simple: stair rods are the very best way to do that. Here at Stair Rods Direct, we’ve worked hard to fill our shop with the best quality stair rods, but we’ve noticed that there are some folks who seem to selling cheap stair rods – both online and off. We do understand that saving money is a key concern in this day and age, but there are many reasons that cheap stair rods are really not a good idea. Here are just a few of them.
Cheap stair rods won’t last long
Generally speaking, the old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’ very much applies here. When you plump for cheap stair rods, rather than going for the mid- or high-end range, you will no doubt find a differing build quality. For example, cheap stair rods are often completely hollow (rather than being solid metal), which can lead to a shorter lifespan and make them viable to damage. This translates directly to a much worse long-term investment for you.
Inferior stair rods can be dangerous
Don’t forget that stair rods are often made of metals such as chrome, iron, or brass. What means is that when you have these installed in your home, if they’re not of a certain quality (or they’re not solid), there’s a chance they will become loose or bent and can cause a hazard. It’s easy to imagine a situation whereby cheap hollow stair rods bend on impact, and could potentially trip someone on the stairs – which can result in serious injury. Do bear in mind, however, that there are some hollow stair rods which are made to be durable and safe – you just have to be sure you buy from a reputable source.
Cheap stair rods just won’t look as good
We strive to fill our stair rod shop with the best possible products, and a part of this is the way that they look. With the right finish on the metal, as well as the right design, stair rods can bring a touch of elegance and class to any stair case. Unfortunately, cheap stair rods can do the exact opposite. Dull metal that tarnishes easily, bends easily and becomes difficult to manage over time are all part and parcel of buying cheap stair rods. In a nutshell, our recommendation is to simply never scrimp on your stair rods. Buy hollow to save a little money, by all means, but always be sure of the quality first.
