Fort Greene Kitchen And Bath Renovation And RestylePosted by Cat I. in Clinton Hill
My husband and I just bought our first apartment, and we want to renovate the kitchen and bath before we move in. We know that if we don't do it now, it will be 10 years before we get around to it, and we want to enjoy our new home!
Design and Build
Functional but...; Not my style
Kitchen was probably updated in the late '90s/early 2000s, judging by the looks of it; in good shape and usable but not our style or as fully functional for us. Refrigerator is new but too huge. Bath is in fine shape, just not our style. Tile appears to have been redone recently--maybe within last 5 years.
Scope of work
1. Knock down partial wall to open kitchen.
2. Add central island with new sink and existing dishwasher.
3. Replace bulky refrigerator with skinny, low-profile model hidden in a cabinet.
4. Take out microwave/hood over stove and replace with hood (or other venting option--no microwave needed).
5. Replace cabinets.
6. Replace backsplash and counter.
7. Take up tile on floor and put down wood to match parquet in living room.
8. Drop ceiling slightly (maybe--if it would help make space seem more cohesive).
9. Change lighting fixture.
1. Re-tile the floor and walls.
2. Replace mirror with medicine cabinet and lights.
3. Replace pedestal sink with vanity.
4. Replace molded tub with clawfoot tub (maybe--if not, just re-tile around tub).
5. Replace shower and bath faucet fixtures.
Camille exceeded our expectations, providing valuable support, explanation, and creative solutions through the process. He had fantastic ideas--we could tell that he loves designing and working with clients to marry their style with his knowledge and sensibility. No detail escapes his notice and attention!
