Park Slope Kitchen Renovation

An outdated Park Slope kitchen gets a major update

For those who love to cook and entertain, an outdated kitchen can pose some annoying setbacks. Brooklyn couple Erin & Mark made do for 2 years in their Park Slope 1-bed before deciding to give their kitchen’s laminate surfaces and retro appliances a full upgrade. After having worked with a Sweeten member on a previous bathroom update, they knew he’d be perfect to tackle their kitchen project too. Erin, a film distributor, and Mark, an editor/journalist (who just launched a cool soccer magazine), couldn’t be happier with the result! So, we stopped in to check out the couple’s new, more functional kitchen.

The new kitchen features white quartzite countertops and ceiling-high storage. The updated space is so much brighter and more efficient.

NKCI then built a custom unit to integrate the washer/dryer and refrigerator seamlessly into the white cabinets.
