Red Handleless with Super White Quartz Worktops

Red Kitchen White Worktops

The Brief

Having lived in their house in Etchingham for several years our clients had developed a long list of likes and dislikes about their existing kitchen. This is often a good place to start, especially if you are not significantly altering the size or shape of the kitchen area; what works and what doesn’t? Do you need more storage or more prep space… and so on?

In this case, the plan was to partially remove a large chimney breast to open the space up to the dining area. The kitchen itself then had to function in a very specific way to give our clients not only the functionality they needed but also the social space to allow for family gatherings.

Design

The design centred around a large peninsula which divided the kitchen area into two distinct parts. One area was the cooking zone, with a large gas hob, the ovens and the fridge. And the other, a far more social space, with stools, drinks centre and lots more storage.

With the basic layout designed, it was then a case of fine-tuning the details. To create storage that worked exactly as our clients wanted we came up with a scheme that included two full-height worktop dressers. One would house the crockery and the other the coffee machine and toaster. To maximise their usability we added vertical bi-folding doors, so these units could be open and the doors folded flat against a wall so as not to impact the space.

How it worked out

Firstly, the most striking thing about this kitchen is the colour. In an often monotone world of ‘play it safe’ whites, greys and blacks, what an absolute delight it was to work with such a vibrant colour scheme. The chilli-inspired red coupled with the super white quartz worktops really bring this space to life.

Beyond the colours, the design is an excellent example of a kitchen space tailored to meet the exact requirements of our clients. Like with any space, things can be done in a number of ways and often times there is no right or wrong choice, one way is not necessarily better than the next. And whilst there is no such thing as the perfect kitchen, it remains our aim each and every time, to get as close as we possibly can to designing a kitchen that is perfect just for you.

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.
