Design Feature - Style with stainless
Based each and every time on their number one value of quality, Mercer Stainless have been crafting outstanding custom kitchen benchtops for over 50 years.
Working closely with builders, architects, joiners, and homeowners, Mercer Stainless approach every job as if they are going into a hi-spec home. The company aims for its quality to be known as second to none, and this certainly comes across in its care and precision in every job.
“We pride ourselves on our quality products and the service we provide,” said Mercer Stainless’ Custom bench sales and Production Co-ordinator, Diane Burton. “We stand by our products.” This is probably why joiners come back to Mercer Stainless time and again, as they know they can rely on the manufacture of a bench that is perfect for each job.
The advantage of stainless is that it is so easy to keep clean and it looks incredibly smart. Mercer’s bench catalogue includes several edge designs, for example, a wet edge slope on the outer lip to prevent water seepage down cupboards. There are also options for how the stainless-steel top is attached to the wall and various textured finishes are available. There are dedicated members of staff to handle all polishing and final finishes, ensuring the product is just right before it leaves the factory.
Mercer Stainless have noticed a change in trend in recent years towards large and long kitchen benches. Mercer’s product has the ability to wrap around corners or cover a seven to eight-metre long bench. As Diane says, “If you think up something, we can probably make it work.”
Recent success stories include working with designer Kristina Pickford, where Mercer manufactured both her kitchen benchtop as well as her black plate stainless brushed kitchen cupboards. The overall result was an incredibly stylish, Euro-chic, industrial look.
Also, what about the sinks? Mercer Stainless have found often customers want high-end sinks from Europe, which is no problem for the team. Mercer can use any brand sink the customer requires, leading to a personalised look that’s unique to each job.
It’s not only benchtops that feature on Mercer Stainless product range – anything from splashbacks, rangehood covers, or outdoor BBQ areas. Diane is clearly proud of Mercer Stainless and she takes pride in what the company stands for. “We love the product and we love working with people to get it just right.”
