Luxury German Kitchens

Since 2012 we have specialised in designing and installing luxury German kitchens throughout Sussex and Kent.

Great kitchens are all about the details

Each year we work on a relatively small number of projects. This enables us to dedicate the time necessary to understand you and what you want from your new kitchen. And then, when it comes to the project management and installation, it allows us to focus on the details that really make the difference to your kitchen.

In this video (3m14s), Co-Founder Jamie explains how Black Rok use their experience to help you on your kitchen buying journey.

Founded in 2011 by Jamie and Ed, it was (and still is!) our mutual love of “great kitchens” that brought us together to form Black Rok.

Inspired by the manufacturing excellence of Hacker German kitchen furniture, we opened our showroom to showcase our kitchens and offer people a turnkey service focused on the simple idea of combining high quality kitchen cabinetry along with first class customer service.

Underpinning all of our work are three golden rules:

  • Kitchen design must be thoughtful and creative
  • It must be made from high-quality components
  • It must be fitted with care, meticulous attention to detail and with the utmost consideration for our clients and their home.

It’s not rocket science, it’s just a refreshingly down-to-earth approach to high-quality kitchens.

Read more about the Black Rok story

Let’s start with three words; quality, consistency and reliability. We want to spend our time working with clients, to design their perfect kitchen and create a space that is tailored to how they cook and live. To do this we need a product and delivery system that we know we can depend on. As a country, Germany continues to be a world leader in manufacturing. There is a precision and consistency to how things are made that ensures whilst every single Black Rok kitchen design is unique, they are all built in the same way and to the exact same high standards.

But it doesn’t end there. German kitchens, like their cars, lead the way with product development and innovation. Everything from handle-less kitchens to water resistant PUR edge bonding began in Germany. These technologies not only raise the standard in terms of product function but open a whole world of design possibilities for our clients. Kitchens are now about so much more than just function, very often they form the heart of the home with open-plan living a trend that continues to grow and change the way we use our homes. With the very latest technologies available we are able to far exceed our clients’ expectations, just look at some of our “recent projects” to get a sense of what’s possible.

The final, perhaps most important reason we only use German kitchens, we genuinely believe they represent the best value for money. Manufacturing on such a large scale, (our factory produces over half a billion pounds worth of kitchens every single year!) brings with it great economies of scale. Very simply this means a higher quality product can be designed and made available at a lower price point.

So there we have it, we want to offer our clients the very best kitchen at the very best price. For more details on pricing, check out how much a new kitchen costs.

We would like to thank Jamie and Ed at Black Rok for our amazing German kitchen. From design concept to installation, they have been professional throughout and ensured we have achieved our dream modern kitchen. The quality of the build is what you would expect from a Germany company, but the little details from different draw and cupboard configuration's, to the lighting has made the difference. The quartz worktops are beautiful and the island at nearly 3m long makes this large kitchen so workable and an entertainment area in its self. We even fitted in a large pantry behind the kitchen and Black Rok have ensured we have used this space to its maximum potential. We cannot recommend Black Rok enough for your next dream kitchen.

We love our Black Rok kitchen! Jamie showed amazing patience and design expertise over the two years that it took us to create our vision, at the same time as building our house. Jamie was able to incorporate everything that we wanted, providing great advice and suggestions along the way. The installation was amazing - nothing was too much trouble and the coordination with our builders went perfectly. We have both a beautiful and fully functional space and would thoroughly recommend Black Rok.

Thoroughly recommend the Black Rok team. We put in a new kitchen and got excellent advice through the planning process. We asked to see a number of different layout options on the computer and Jamie was very patient and helpful. The installation team were first rate and took great pride in their work. Overall very satisfied.

Having downsized, I was somewhat daunted by the prospect of turning my narrow, shadowy, U-shaped, very basic kitchen into one that I actually wanted to spend time in. I now have a light, airy, functional space with practical ‘innards’ and modern, intuitive appliances. Thanks to Jamie and Ed the kitchen layout has been totally transformed and the best use has been made of the space with a sleek handle-less design and contemporary narrow worktops. Both Jamie and Ed have communicated professionally and openly at all stages of the project and Ed was even instrumental in steering me towards my final colour choices! I would thoroughly recommend Black Roc for their design and fitting capabilities.

WOW! Black Rok did a really fabulous job job with both design and fit. We have a high quality contemporary kitchen and appliances. The fit was done in just a few days with care and precision. We have had no issues but Black Rok have kept in touch and visited to ensure we are satisfied which of course we are. Fabulous colour and all very functional. Great decision to use Black Rok and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

We have nothing but positive things to say about the team at Black Rok Kitchen Design. Having spent 3-4 years dithering over getting a new kitchen, we finally decided to take the plunge last year. We had 2 criteria: a sleek, modern, German style kitchen provided by an independent, local business with impeccable references. After coming across the Black Rok website, we were immediately taken by the striking designs and reassured by the volume of glowing customer testimonials along with photographs of recent projects. From the moment we met with Jamie in the Uckfield showroom, it was clear that he understood what we were looking for. Although we had some pretty fixed ideas on design and layout, Jamie was able to take those ideas and enhance them seamlessly into an overall design scheme that exceeded our expectations in all departments. We had a few design meetings, several phone calls and email conversations, and within fairly short order were signing off on a final specification for delivery in early 2023. In the lead up to installation, communication was great and the technical drawings provided by Jamie for layout of plumbing and electrical services were described by our builder as the most detailed and accurate he had come across. Indeed the Black Rok team came onto site during the preparation works to meet with our builder and electricians to ensure a smooth installation process. Everything was delivered on time and exactly to the agreed budget. The cabinets and interiors are really well made and constructed with an engineered precision you might expect of a German manufacturer. The installation team of Ed, Zac and Jake were really personable, treated our home with great respect and worked extremely efficiently to ensure the kitchen was installed quickly and accurately. They solved every problem posed to them, displaying great attention to detail and tidying up diligently at the end of each day. We are utterly delighted with the new kitchen, which certainly delivers a "wow" moment when friends and family come to visit. The quality of the workmanship is incredible value for the overall price paid. We still pinch ourselves when walking into the room and are so pleased with ourselves for choosing Black Rok.

Fantastic, intelligent and responsive service from Jamie and Ed from start to end. The kitchen design stood out from the beginning for its attention to detail and a real understanding of what we wanted from the space. They recommended excellent builders and then worked with them to make sure that the end result was picture perfect to the design. Fitting was spot on from a skilled, diligent team and we were never kept waiting. Issues with 3rd party appliances were dealt with in a way which made it crystal clear that our satisfaction was the priority. Brilliant. Easy 5 Stars.

We are so pleased we elected to go with Black Rok kitchens, as they have designed and installed the kitchen of our dreams! Throughout the process, from design to installation we were reassured by the professionalism of Jamie and Ed. Jamie created a fantastic design for our kitchen and suggested ideas we had not previously considered and the installation by Jake, Zak and Ed has been completed to an exceptionally high standard! Nothing was too much trouble. If you're considering upgrading your kitchen, don't hesitate to contact Black Rok, you won't regret it.
