Satin White Handleless Kitchen with Oak in Tunbridge Wells

Satin White Handleless Kitchen

The Brief

Our client had their heart set on adding bi-folding doors to the end of their white satin kitchen. The existing layout was an L-shape with a small door to the right hand side leading to the garden. The plan was to let the light flood in, opening up the space to the outside. In terms of the kitchen brief we had to find a way to conceal the boiler, have seating for four adults, house a full height fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, two ovens, large induction hob and plenty of storage for a young family. The feel of the kitchen had to be young, fresh and just a little bit quirky. They wanted something that really caught their imagination and justified the major structural rejig.

The Design

The key element is the seating area and the wrap-around units. This set the tone both in style and the colour scheme; the soft satin white sitting very comfortably alongside the Cornwall Oak, inviting a very easy interplay between the two finishes. The right hand side houses the built in fridge freezer and oven units, with super practical drawers running the entire length of the base unit run. The bi-fold wall units add further storage, whilst one hides the telescopic extractor and another conceals the boiler.

The sink area is compact but very functional, topped with quartz for a truly family proof ‘wet zone’. Big, chunky shelves were used to soften the edges and add space for family life and all that comes with it.

How it worked out

This kitchen is not the biggest we have done, not by a long way, but it is right up there in terms of style, practicality and, just as importantly, the way it makes you feel. It’s a space that feels right, it’s both glamorous and yet homely, modern but still a little bit rustic. It’s a pretty special mix.

The seating area looks great set against the wooden shelves with the soft, warm lighting. The simple lines, the practical layout coupled with a little bit of creativity show perfectly how you don’t need to have the biggest kitchen or even the biggest kitchen budget to end up with something a little bit special. We think this one really hits the spot.

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.
