READ THIS FIRST: Our industry is still grappling with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, from material shortages and shipping delays to rising labor costs and other changes to processes necessitated by the pandemic. If you’re planning to take on an apartment renovation in the next few months, our blog – Renovating In NYC Today: How To Navigate Delays, Increased Costs, and Other Covid-Related Concerns – serves as a COVID caveat to this Buyer’s Renovation Guide, designed to help you navigate all aspects of apartment renovations in New York City.

In Shakespeare’s world, journeys end in lovers meeting. In our world, journeys end in clients meeting their new homes! As the last step in our extensive Buyer’s Renovation Guide, it’s only natural to take you through a completed project, from the renderings to the final reveal.

Our rendering of the enlarged kitchen.

This project took place in Lincoln Towers, an apartment complex on the Upper West Side. Our clients purchased their co-op, a combined unit that had previously been two individual apartments, with the intention of gut renovating the kitchen and bathroom, as well as building closets, adding a laundry area, and completely replacing all the floors.

As with every project we take on, we were heavily involved in the entire apartment renovation process from start to finish, including board approvals, permit procurements, material selections and procurements, design, project management, construction, and the build itself.

Another angle of our rendering!


Since the unit had already been combined with an adjoining apartment, we already had more space than usual to work with. As a result, not only did we enlarge the existing kitchen, but we were able to use some additional space to create a laundry area, as well – music to the ears of New Yorkers. 

The enlarged kitchen also received fully custom two-toned cabinetry featuring the timeless combination of white and navy alongside quartz countertops, a porcelain subway tile backsplash, and the addition of a wine fridge to an immovable column. 

The immovable column!

The customization continued in the renovated bathroom, with a fully custom vanity built expressly to match the space, including an additional section of counter space as an area dedicated to getting ready for the day. The contemporary spa-like atmosphere was completed by the one-inch hexagon marble floor tiles, with matching walls in porcelain for less maintenance but to maintain the look of marble.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
