Manhattan Condo Renovation


Our clients purchased a condominium on the Upper East Side with the intention to fully renovate before moving in. A post-war space, the bones had already been modernized but the overall vibe was outdated. The kitchen was not functional and the home lacked storage. On top of that, the original darker color palette failed to take advantage of the condo’s ample natural light.

A Contemporary Look

While the overall aesthetic is decidedly contemporary, the updated kitchen and dining room best epitomize the clean, sleek lines of this style. Flat-panel high-gloss upper cabinets in white are the height of contemporary, with lower cabinets featuring a light, sandy finish for neutral contrast. Self-closing drawers further the focus on the modern, as well as the subtly elegant Cambria natural quartz countertops and matching porcelain floor tiles.

The kitchen’s natural footprint is so small that we optimized storage by adding a whole wall of glossy white cabinets in the dining room, with a wine cooler tucked into one of the sides as well. The perfectly smooth surface of the glossy white lacquered cabinets makes the most of the expansive natural light in the dining room, naturally making the space feel larger.

Notes on the Bathrooms

We carried the contemporary spirit into the three bathrooms remodeled in this Manhattan condo renovation.

In the master bathroom, we cultivated a spa-like atmosphere with floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble.

In the kid’s bathroom, glossy ceramic tiles are accented with a mosaic-style shower niche, while the oak vanity softens the room.

The third bathroom, a rare powder room with a shower, features Carrara marble floor tiles with a mosaic accent wall and brushed walnut vanity, with dark gray floor tiles in the shower for a contrasting touch.

Some Highlights

  • Built-in cabinetry in the living room for additional multi-purpose storage
  • New select oak wheat flooring throughout
  • Sputnik chandelier in the dining room
  • Extra wall of glossy white cabinets for additional kitchen storage
  • Floor-to-ceiling Carrara marble in the master bath

Our success stories

Forget about any horror story you have heard about contractors. Stop right here. This is the design-build contractor you want to HIRE. It was a breeze working with Aaron and Jonathan on our apartment combination project. We looked at quiet a few design-build companies and chose Gallery because of the great communication and the fact that they were able to manage material purchasing and product selection for us….They were honest, took responsibility and pride in their work.”

I hired Gallery Kitchen & Bath after interviewing 3 or 4 other top rated companies. It was my first time dealing with contractors for a job this size so I was anxious, and my main criteria in gauging the companies was their ability to listen, communicate, and of course if they’re trustworthy…in retrospect, signing with with was the right decision and we are very happy with the results.

After my wife and I purchased our West Village condo, we knew a renovation was first on our list of priorities. After a thorough search and meeting numerous firms, we found Gallery Kitchen and Bath and at Gallery we met Eli who from beginning was prepared to go above and beyond other contractors we met to make sure our vision came to fruition. From start to finish, Eli and team were hands on through the decision making process, carefully stepping us through our decisions and their implications.

From the start, we wanted a crew that could do full service (design and build). After looking at some other designs, we really liked what Gallery offered in way of aesthetics. Then, during the entire process, the team was all over it! Issues always come up, but it’s how these guys handled them that make me here writing a positive review. Can’t recommend them highly enough

I enthusiastically recommend Gallery and especially our project manager Eli, who did a superb job renovating our once decrepit 2-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights. The project involved a full kitchen and bathroom renovation, as well as new electrical, refinished floors, new doors, new baseboards, and some rearranged bedroom closets. What is more, when I have them the wrong paint color for my daughter’s bedroom, and the team started to paint that color, they got the paint I wanted and corrected the “mistake” (which has actually been my mistake) and didn’t charge me for that either. I’d choose them again 100 times over and definitely recommend them to anyone considering a similar project.

We interviewed about 8 different companies before hiring a contractor for our apartment renovations. We immediately clicked with Peter, our project manager, and although Gallery was not the cheapest option, we chose them based on their upfront billing format, high client reviews, and depth of knowledge after speaking with Peter and Aaron. We loved how it was a “one stop shop” and were paying one bill, up front. …Everything was very transparent and we could not be happier with the results! Our apartment looks exactly how we imagined.
