MyHome, the Manhattan-based renovation company, recently completed a kitchen renovation at 206 East 18th Street in Manhattan. The project was lead by senior MyHome Remodeling Consultant, Ben Pitt and Project Manager, Todd Sunko. Pitt and his team were tasked with completely transforming a dreary outdated kitchen with parquet hardwood flooring in a duplex apartment.
The homeowner aimed to take advantage of the impressive high-ceilings and create an elegant kitchen that integrated seamlessly with the rest of the apartment. In order to fulfill this vision, the MyHome team continued the new Chevron-style herringbone oak floors into the kitchen. The accentuate the high ceilings, the team reduced the tall kitchen soffit to the standard 12” height. This allowed for the preservation of the living crown molding while opening up the kitchen.
As designer, Pitt opted for Hanssem white gloss thermofoil cabinetry. This gave the kitchen a sleek and contemporary style. The cabinets were accented with a light-colored Silestone quartz-composite counter. To add an eclectic twist, the homeowner provided custom wood peninsula counter which provided contrast in the space. High-end subway ceramics backsplash tiles and LED under-cabinet lights gave flair to an otherwise budget-conscious project. One of the small, yet impactful projects in the new kitchen was adding a blind corner half-moon lazy Susan for enhanced storage.
The stairs where refinished and bannister replaced to match new flooring throughout. Installing even flooring on an uneven, joist-construction sub-floor was a challenge but careful installation by industry professionals achieved an excellent result.
Staying in budget while enhancing look was very important. In the end, the team created a bright, open and elegant space.
