We helped Rachel and Kenny complete a bathroom and kitchen remodel for their first New York City Co-op. The challenge was getting through the tedious paperwork involved when renovating under Co-op board rules. The goal was to make the apartment feel modern and functional, while staying under budget.
Matt, the project planner, met with Rachel and Kenny to capture the vision, timeline and budget. He understood the goal was to modernize the kitchen and bathroom, improving the look and functionally while creating a timeless design that drives up the resale value.
Every renovation project starts with the planning phase led by the project planners. At the at-home visit, Matt captured a 360 tour of the bathroom to get accurate measurements and fast-track the project.
The design challenge was to upgrade the outdated kitchen and bathroom to create a modern aesthetic without breaking the bank. The client went for a modern design with neutral beige colors, natural stone and wood materials. The designers worked on several layouts and design visualizations so Kenny and Rachel had options. Finally, Rachel and Kenny made their design decisions and felt confident going into the construction phase.
During the building phase, the construction team worked on a complete renovation of the kitchen and bathroom. The team created an open-concept kitchen with an island, beautiful pendant lights and brand new stainless steel appliances. For the bathroom, they converted the bathtub into a walk-in shower with a black-framed, glass door.
