What is brushed colored stainless steel sheet?

Brushed colored stainless steel sheets are made by applying a layer of color to the surface of brushed stainless steel sheets.

The most popular brushed finishes include hairline and satin. The brushing should generally be coated with a layer of anti-fingerprint so that the sheet surfaces will not have many fingerprints on them when it is in use.

The most popular colors for brushed stainless steel are gold, rose gold, champagne, black, bronze, and copper. Other popular colors include red, green, sapphire blue, and violet. They are a unique subset of stainless steel products that offer both the beauty of color and the durability of stainless steel compared with ordinary bright stainless steel.

Functional applications of brushed colored stainless steel sheets

While brushed stainless steel is often used for interior decoration like wall claddings, it can also be used for functional applications such as furniture legs, niches, or room partitions because of its durability, good corrosion resistance, and wear resistance.

Furniture Legs

Furniture made of brushed coloured stainless steel sheets can range from chairs and tables to more intricate designs such as chandeliers or sculptures.

When choosing furniture made of brushed colored stainless steel sheets, it is important to keep in mind the overall style of the space where it will be placed.

Brushed Gold

Tables or chairs with brushed gold stainless steel legs are sure to add a touch of luxury and sophistication to modern living and dining areas.

Brushed Rose Gold

If you are looking to add a softer touch to your space, then furniture with brushed rose gold stainless steel legs may be the perfect option. The warm hue of the metal can help to create a more inviting and welcoming atmosphere.

Brushed Black

For a more dramatic look, opt for furniture with brushed black stainless steel legs. The dark color of the metal will make a bold statement in any room and is sure to turn heads.

Embedded Niches

Brushed-color stainless steel embedded niches are now quite fashionable for interior décor. The depth of the built-in stainless steel niche is approximately 100mm to 200mm, which does not take up room and may make the inside space larger. Grey, gold, rose gold, champagne and black PVD colors are available to be selected.

Room Partition

If you are looking for a way to add privacy to a room or simply want to divide up space, then brushed-colored stainless steel sheets make an excellent choice. There are many different ways that you can use room dividers made of brushed stainless steel. For example, you could use them to create a temporary wall in an open-plan living space or use them as partitions in an office.

Glass Frames

The most common glass frame is made of brushed titanium gold stainless steel sheets. The luxury color can be used for any glass products, such as picture frames, bathroom mirrors, and even windows.

How to select the right color and type of sheet for your needs

Color Types

While traditional stainless steel sheets rely on the original color for their finish, brushed colored stainless steel sheet uses a process called PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) to coat the sheet in a range of colors. Besides, nano-painting is another popular coloring method.

PVD coating

PVD is a process in which a metal is vaporized in a vacuum and then deposited onto the surface of the sheet. This method allows for a wide range of colors as listed above. Brushing and PVD coating are a good match used for interior applications such as elevator doors and wall cladding.


Nano-painting is a newer process that uses specialized paint to coat the sheet and offers a wider range of colors than PVD coating. In this process, color pigments are added to the stainless steel surface of the sheet using nanotechnology, which allows for all colors only if a sample can be provided.

Design Types

Brushing can combine with other surface treatment such as stamping or embossing to create unique surface texture and surface roughness.

Brushing + Stamping

Brushed stamped sheets are made by combining a brushed finish with a stamping process. This process uses a die to press patterns into the brushing surface. The result is a sheet with a brushed finish and raised or recessed areas that create a three-dimensional effect.

Brushing + Embossing

Brushed embossed sheets are produced by combining a brushed finish with an embossing process. After a coil of stainless steel sheet is rolled by a metal roller with various textures, the surface is usually brushed to give it an exquisite appearance.

Brushing + Mirror Polishing

A brushed + mirror polished sheet is created by combining the brushing process with a mirror polishing process. In this process, the stainless steel sheet is first polished to be bright and reflective shine and then brushed to create a uniform hairline or satin finish.
