Matt Graphite Kitchen with Vintage Oak and Cloudburst Concrete Quartz

Matt Graphite Kitchen with Vintage Oak

The Brief

Having seen one of our kitchens being installed at their neighbours, our clients came to us looking for a new contemporary kitchen layout that maximized the storage, without taking up more space within the open plan layout of their house.

The kitchen needed to have the wow factor to fit into the beautifully deigned house. They wanted cabinetry with discreet handles and quartz worktops. Also on the list were integrated appliances such a siemens oven, a combi micro oven, Elica induction hob with integrated extraction and weighing scales, and a dishwasher. Storage was an important factor in this kitchen so adding a pull out larder and housing a Fisher and Paykel fridge freezer was a must.

The Design

The layout was to replace the existing kitchen in a large light and bright open plan room. The clients spent a lot of time talking to us about the textures and colours they wanted. Quite rightly they wanted it to be perfect so it was important to spend extra time on this part of the design. The clients also had a really good eye for design and details so it was great fun working with them.

The cabinetry is matt graphite and vintage oak and the beautiful worktop is Caesarstone cloudburst concrete. Choosing the right colour for your kitchen is important for the aesthetic value and can make the space look brighter and more prominent.

The room has lots of natural light coming through so adding dark cabinetry really adds a depth to the room and the vintage oak brings warmth. The peninsula island was to come off the wall with seating for three and this run of cabinetry was to be all drawers to maximize storage space. All the extras were added to this kitchen to bring it all together such as the Quooker boiling tap, pull out bins, breakfast bar, led lighting , open shelves and elegant stainless steel handles.

How it worked out

This matt graphite kitchen project was a great success and the clients are really happy with their new kitchen. The kitchen is not only beautiful to look at, it is made from high end materials and was planned exactly how our clients wanted it to be. The overall effect is a great kitchen with a high degree of functionality with lots of well designed storage space. It was a pleasure to go back at photograph the kitchen and see all the accessories and finishing touches they had added.

What our clients said

From the very beginning the team at Black Rok held our hand at every step of our journey. At no point did they pressurise us us into buying their products or services. We both felt that we were valued customers. Each and every time we honed our design they made that process uncomplicated and accommodated our needs. We felt comfortable that nothing was too much for them to help us. Both their design and installation service is exemplary. We would have no hesitation in recommending Black Rok to other interested parties. Suffice to say we have a fantastic new Kitchen and we are very happy with it.

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.

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.

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.
