Modern Minimalism in Holt

Bright and Modern in the heart of North Norfolk.

Situated in the picturesque market town of Holt, Norfolk this is a luxury-designed Hacker kitchen.

The kitchen is bright, open, refreshing and inviting. The client has undergone a long process of a new build and has finished with a house and kitchen that are exquisite.

The project

Derek Forman Homes are the developer for building the client’s new home recommended Blaines to design and supplier their kitchen.

The client met our design team to design the kitchen which would be perfect for them.  A Concept 130 Hacker Kitchen in Laser Soft Graphite, paired with a black handless rail and Silestone Classic Calacatta worktop were chosen.

This kitchen match the style of the house, it is simple, bright, light, and minimal creating a perfect eating, cooking, and dining area.

The Kitchen

The kitchen has been designed to be practical and symmetrically balanced. The sink run is simple yet perfectly fIt is ensuirng that each side of the run is balanced with tall housings. Whether that houses the 2 Neff Hide ‘n’ Slide ovens or the built-in fridge and larder unit.

The area between the tall housing has a single bowl undermount sink and a large statement tap with a flexible hose. The wall units above the sink match perfectly the base units below ensuring that the lines are all flowing.

Island Hot Water Tap and sociable area

The island is one large sheet of Silestone Classic Calacatta. It allows the light to bounce around the room creating bright environment for entertaining.

The island is designed to develop that feel of sociable cooking. The hob faces into the diner and a ceiling-mounted extractor means there is nothing in the way to distract guests.  Seamless interaction between the host and the guests can take place as an amazing meal is prepared on the Neff Induction hob.

To enhance the feeling of openness and a free-flowing lifestyle the client has installed a separate boiling tap on a small undermount sink on the island. Therefore reducing the need to have a kettle always on show in the kitchen.

The client chose to develope the mat black theme by using mat black on the tap and open display units within the dining area. This colour palate of greys, black, and whites is complimented with a simple white wall, as a result the colour can be brought into the room through accessories and lighting.


The client spent time thinking about what appliances they wanted for their kitchen. Some appliances went into a separate utility room. The ceiling-mounted extractor fan was chosen because it would not inhibit the eye line when the area was being used.

The boxing that the developer has built to house the product has created a lovely feature on the ceiling. The Wine cooler is fully integrated into a handless kitchen and uses a “Handle-free opening with push-to-open” door.<
