We always recommend using a 316 grade stainless steel for all external applications.
If you are anywhere near the beach (in our experience, even up to 20km away), you should use a mirror finish.
A 316 grade satin finish should only be used if you are away from the beach or if you are happy to be regularly cleaning and maintaining your stainless!
All internal applications can use a 304 grade satin finish stainless steel. You would only use a mirror finish if that was the particular look that you are going for.
