The Linear Look


The linear look

Looking for a sleek, modernist kitchen with slim contours, neat lines, handleless units and a shiny gloss finish? The linear look perfectly evokes this style. German kitchen makers Hacker are renowned for manufacturing this ultra contemporary design and our team at Black Rok will be more than happy to impart their specialist knowledge to you.

Things To Consider When Creating The Linear Look

Handleless Kitchen Units

These will give your kitchen a refined, contemporary appearance whilst also being practical and safe. They have been popular in minimalist kitchen designs for some time, but have more recently become a staple in the kitchens of people seeking an everyday modern style. These units will blend impeccably with the rest of your kitchen, enhancing a fresh, polished finish.

Apart from the aesthetic appeal of these doors, they are also more hygienic. The fact they are smooth and handleless means there are less places for dirt and germs to accumulate. Simple to operate with a push to open system, they are safer for children and pets too, as there will be no injuries from them catching themselves on sticking out handles.

Integrated Storage

Integrated storage enables you to keep your kitchen tidy and streamlined, whilst creating a zen atmosphere. There are many innovative storage solutions available to choose from, for example corner cupboards to help utilise otherwise wasted space and deep drawers that can store anything from plates to saucepans, and many can be fitted with an internal drawer for cutlery.

Why not install a larder in your new kitchen? They come in various designs, from pull out cupboards to more regular cupboards with shelves or drawer options, which means you can keep all your food staples in one place. Unsightly bins can be banished into a drawer under your sink with different sections for regular rubbish and recycling. These can all be fitted with soft close runners or hinges.

Under oven drawers are perfect for storing oven trays and mean they are right on hand when you need them. Or why not impress your guests with a drinks cupboard climber unit, with touch button powered louver doors, which fold up like a blind. All your kitchen appliances can be integrated, further helping to create the smooth, linear look.

Induction hobs are probably the best choice for your sleek kitchen as they are neater and easier to clean than gas.

Quartz Worktops

Engineered Quartz worktops will beautifully complement this style and are considered by many as the crème de la crème of worktops. With a stunning finish and availability in an array of colours they will balance your kitchen colour scheme and are the icing on the cake of your linear look kitchen.

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.
