Great attention to detail is what immediately comes to mind when you visit the home and kitchen of Kenmore Hills property developer, Matt Sproule.
Sproule's residence in Brisbane's westside features a modern stainless steel kitchen designed by Brian Grant Kitchens and Bathrooms that would be the envy of most interior designers and home chefs.
According to Sproule, friend and business associate, Royce Amos of Royce Amos Interior Design was the driving force for the inclusion of stainless steel benches in the design.
Fabricated by ASSDA Accredited Fabricator Bell Stainless, the large prestige kitchen has four food preparation areas all designed for entertaining a large group of people.
The main area of the kitchen design features a five metre long stainless steel benchtop with a highly, scratch resistant textured finish and seamless welded Murray triple bowl sinks (another full size sink is under the drainage tray).
Other kitchen areas include a stainless steel barbeque with hood and in-built drain for oils and grease plus textured stainless side benching, stovetop gas burners, hood and textured stainless bench and a four metre long marble island bench for food preparation.
Bell Stainless' craftmanship and attention to detail is highlighted in the enduring finish. Sproule said that he was delighted with the way Bell Stainless handled the job. After one year in service and with careful treatment by its owners, the stainless steel benches show no sign of scratches or dents.
Bell Stainless is a family-owned business operating since 1956, mainly manufacturing for the domestic market, an area not often tackled by many metal fabricators.
Bell Stainless is the only Australian company and ASSDA Accredited Fabricator to have won an international award for kitchen design and manufacture from the South African Stainless Steel Development Association.
