Spring Inspired Kitchen


Spring inspiration for your kitchen

Spring is emerging in all its glory; a delight to each and every one of our senses, it’s the perfect natural moodboard for your Spring inspired kitchen. The colours seem to grow more vibrant everyday, from the cherry blossom to the tulips. The smell of fresh cut grass is beginning to pervade our walks and the cheerful sound of birdsong provides the ideal accompaniment for relaxing Spring days.

This is a time of rejuvenation and growth, it’s the ideal opportunity to let nature inspire your kitchen projects, allowing its influences to transcend your designs and ideas, be they big or small. After a long winter our senses are being awoken again by all that’s around us and we can look to them when planning our kitchens.

All that we see

Spring cleaning should be an integral part of any new kitchen project, providing the opportunity to declutter and restore some order to this busy area. You should avoid toxic cleaning products by choosing natural alternatives such as lemon juice, bicarbonate of soda, white vinegar and beeswax.

There are a myriad of ways you can bring Spring influences into your kitchen depending on your plans and budget, from a kitchen remodel to simply bringing freshly cut flowers into your home. Spring conjures up images of blossom, flowers and green trees and fields. Why not emulate this colour palette in your kitchen units, wall colours or accessories? If you are thinking of redecorating there are now non toxic paint brands available, better for you and the environment.

Leading colour specialist, Pantone, have sited greenery as their colour of 2017, a vibrant yet calming colour that can be used in all its various hues to create just the effect you are after. Why not paint your walls in your chosen shade of green, or add some tiles to bring in some tone or texture to a more neutral colour scheme. Plants or an indoor herb garden are the perfect way to add small touches of colour and Spring vibrancy.

Embracing the aroma and music of Spring

Fresh flowers always add life and focus in a room, they are an inexpensive way of bringing the outdoors in, adding a touch of Spring energy to your kitchen. Try gathering the family together for a walk and enjoy some quality time while gathering blossom, flowers and branches to create a Spring wreath.

Spring brings a shift in mood both emotionally and aesthetically, with our windows thrown open inviting fresh air and birdsong into our homes to create a rejuvenating and optimistic ambience. This can motivate us to be more creative and adventurous in the kitchen, sourcing local ingredients from farmers’ markets, to experiment with new recipes or to perfect old favourites. The use of fresh herbs always brings an intensity to the flavour of your recipes and these can be grown in your garden or in pots inside.

New year is often synonymous with resolutions for the year ahead, but Spring with its optimism and new life force feels like a more natural time to focus our minds on intentions and plans, whether that’s house projects or personal goals. It’s also a time where new traditions and rituals can be borne, with added impetus from brighter, longer days.

If Spring has inspired you to remodel your kitchen contact our team of kitchen specialists at Black Rok for some advice.

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.
