A contemporary finish

Give your home the wow factor with beautiful bespoke fittings from Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems.

With any property, it’s the finishing touches that really make the difference between a nice home and one that makes you say, “Wow!” Each individual flourish collectively adds up to form the bigger picture, so if you invest in quality it really shows. Whether it’s your own home, a holiday let or development project, it also suggests that the entire property has been created with the due care and attention to detail that every property deserves.

Kestrel can help make the dream a reality…”

One Cornish company that absolutely understands this ethos is the St Austell based Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems. Run by Bruce and Katie Grant, who together bring years of experience in helping to create stunning homes, the business has family values and quality products and service at its core.

Kestrel creates a seemingly endless range of beautiful bespoke products and fittings for the home, from balcony handrails and balustrades to custom-made furniture. Here in Cornwall, where we cherish the idea of inside-outside living to its fullest, Kestrel can help make the dream a reality, whether capitalising on sweeping coastal views with a stainless steel and glass balustrade, or enhancing a contemporary townhouse.

One such example is a recent contemporary new-build by a bespoke property developer. Katie explains more. “The project was particularly interesting for us, as we undertook several areas of work, including a Juliet balcony, internal glass guarding, balustrades and a chic stainless handrail for the steps. We also created a striking stainless down pipe guttering, which was made entirely to order.”

Both inside and out, the home is extremely contemporary, accentuated by the clean lines, sharp light fittings and the minimalist decor. Without a doubt the touches added by Kestrel complete the look perfectly. Inside, glass that appears to float cleverly divides distinct spaces within the living area, whilst still connecting them and allowing light to flow through. Outside, meanwhile, the glass and metal balcony wonderfully frames the views of rolling countryside.

Whatever the scope of your project – whether large or small, contemporary or more traditional – why not see what Bruce and Katie at Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems can do for you?
