High Gloss White Lacquer with Terra Oak Panelling and Aleutian White Quartz

High Gloss White Lacquer Kitchen

The Brief

Within a space not greater than 9m2 the challenge was to create a kitchen that delivered functionality at every point without compromising on simple, clean lines. Everything, right down to the sink had to be carefully considered to maximise efficiency, whilst minimising their impact on the space.

The Design

To achieve the required level of functionality within a small space needs more than just a well-considered design, it needs furniture that has the versatility to make use of all the space available, however small the space, if it’s used intelligently, it can function just as well as a kitchen twice the size.

To better understand the intricacies of this kitchen it is worth considering exactly what’s in it. At the far end, sitting below the hob, is a 900mm drawer unit and two different types of pull-out corner unit. There is also a built-in fridge, built-in dishwasher, pull-out waste bin, pull-out tray rack and two further drawers under the oven. And that’s just the base units! The state of the art IQ700 Siemens multi-function oven, warming drawer and a flexi-induction hob provide the same high level of functionality within the appliances. While the 20mm Quartz worktops and Terra Oak panelling maximise the feeling of space when combined with the two runs of flap-door wall units.

How it worked out

This kitchen is a great example of what can be achieved when the customer and designer work together, refining the design a number of times until they get what they want. This process is very much a two way street; our expertise in knowing what’s possible combined with our customers knowledge of what they want and how they will use the space.

Like all kitchens though, the design is just the start. Small spaces are not just hard to design; they make the installation a little trickier too. Once again our fitters did us proud! By the end of the first week the old kitchen was removed, first fix plumbing and electrics complete and the new kitchen furniture installed. In the second week the room was decorated, the appliances and lighting were installed and connected and finally, the worktops were fitted.

It’s a fantastic kitchen, delivering great levels of functionality whilst staying true to the brief of a clean, unfussy space.

What the customer said

Right from our first visit to the Black Rok showroom we were hooked and no other kitchen would do! We were struck by the professionalism, product quality and knowledge but also the friendly helpful nature of both Jamie & Ed, no question went unanswered and nothing was too much trouble. All our ideas and requests were incorporated into the various designs, of which there were quite a few before we reached the final one!

The delivery/installation date was set at 6 weeks from when we first placed the order and was adhered to which was excellent. From start to finish everything was fully project managed by Jamie who also fitted around timings to suit us, which we found very helpful. All the fitters and tradesmen were professional and considerate at all times. Everything was handled excellently and couldn’t be faulted in any way.

Our new kitchen is all we hoped and planned for and more, we couldn’t be happier. We would highly recommend Black Rok to anyone.

Thanks Jamie & Ed

We would like to thank Jamie and Ed at Black Rok for our amazing German kitchen. From design concept to installation, they have been professional throughout and ensured we have achieved our dream modern kitchen. The quality of the build is what you would expect from a Germany company, but the little details from different draw and cupboard configuration's, to the lighting has made the difference. The quartz worktops are beautiful and the island at nearly 3m long makes this large kitchen so workable and an entertainment area in its self. We even fitted in a large pantry behind the kitchen and Black Rok have ensured we have used this space to its maximum potential. We cannot recommend Black Rok enough for your next dream kitchen.

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.
