Brooklyn Condo Renovation In Prospect Heights | 535 Dean St

About This Renovation

This condo was purchased by a young family with the intent of growing into the home, warranting a complete condo renovation prior to moving in. Entertaining is also a big part of their lives, so a highly functional kitchen was very important. For this complete condo renovation, we delivered a condo kitchen remodel, three new bathrooms, new hardwood flooring throughout, plus custom closets.

Rich Character & Modern Touches

The kitchen we delivered for this Brooklyn condo renovation is both warm and functional, the ideal balance for a great entertainment space. The clients wanted a home filled with color and life, playful yet classic, influenced by their own rich cultural backgrounds.

The kitchen was already a large space, so a two-toned palette was instantly appealing. Our clients were drawn to the combination of white and wood grain, particularly walnut, with black fixtures against a soft hexagon backsplash to complete the look. Overall, modern touches and vibrant character combine to create a warm and functional kitchen with a welcoming aesthetic.

Raise the Bar

The addition of a wet bar was very important to our clients, who required a second sink and extra counter space to make weekday coffees and weekend cocktails. We designed to their specs, offering cabinetry to match the kitchen, open shelving, and a shimmery backsplash with under-cabinet lighting to display objects they’ve acquired throughout their travels.

Getting Organized With Built-Ins

Organization was another key factor to our clients in this NYC condo renovation. They loved traveling pre-pandemic, a hobby which tends to accumulate objects in terms of both gear and souvenirs. Our clients didn't just want shelving and rods though, they wanted separate spaces for shoeboxes, work clothes, luggage, etc. We designed their closets with this in mind, custom built to their exact specifications.

Colorful Bathrooms

Three bathrooms were totally overhauled in this Brooklyn condo renovation, with varying emphases on playful and classic throughout all. Blue is a bold accent color in two of the bathrooms, softened by a floating white vanity, white subway tile, and wall-mounted toilet in the one. In the powder room, an accent wall featuring ceramic tiles in Deep Blue makes a colorful statement.

A more subdued approach was taken in the master bathroom, where a double vanity in a handsome walnut finish is complemented by marbled white quartz countertops and chevron tiles for the floor and shower. All three bathrooms share a love of clean lines and eyecatching accents.

Some Highlights

  • Grohe SmartControl Shower System
  • Full custom Miralis cabinetry in the kitchen and bar area
  • Walker Zanger 4D Ceramic Hexagon tile backsplash

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 Gallery 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.”

Gallery did a gut renovation of the two extremely dated bathrooms in our 1940 Bayside home. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results! The process from beginning to end was facilitated by their team, who came up with great design ideas and suggestions. They were always on top of the project and responded to our questions/problems quickly, with 100% resolution. I would not hesitate to recommend them!

Worked with the Gallery Team to do a full gut renovation of our home. As a young family we wanted a more modern and open layout but needed a practical and functional layout which the Gallery Team worked with us to design. They were very helpful through the entire process and worked with us each step of the way with great responsiveness and care for our project. They were helpful but not pushy through the design process and efficient through the construction process. They maintained open lines of dialogue and we are very happy with the way our home turned out. Thank you Gallery!

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, 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. Although Gallery was not the cheapest option, we chose them based on their upfront billing format, high client reviews, and depth of knowledge. 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. Thank you!!
