New York, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2007
The city that never sleeps can also be a city where a simple bathroom renovation can be a complex and overwhelming experience. NYKB, a renowned kitchen and bath remodeling firm, meets the challenges of New York City renovation on a daily basis. The firm has partnered with NBC 4 HD and online video hosts LX.TV to give New Yorkers a glimpse into the complex and demanding work of high-end renovation in the Big Apple. Says Perry Hiiman, NYKB President, of his company's foray onto the airwaves: "This is great. Viewers will see our expertise and observe a working knowledge of interior renovation that's particular to the New York City remodeling experience."
The cameras and mics of Open House New York will follow, among others, NYKB designers and field managers along all phases of the renovation process. Viewers will get an intimate take of the renovation process. The locale of New York City is particularly noteworthy because of the complexities involved in renovating a home there. Scant parking, stringent codes and controlling co-op boards are only a few of the unique challenges found in New York. Handling the "mini-crisis" with grace and aplomb has been NYKB's calling card and key to its success. In addition to the demonstration of quality craftsmanship and design, episodes featuring NYKB will emphasize hot designer trends and materials for kitchens and bathrooms, crisis resolution and eco-friendly alternatives that are moving to New York's forefront in kitchen and bath design.
OpenHouse New York is the premiere destination for tri-state residents looking for the finest in real estate -- buying, selling, improving or just dreaming, there is something for everyone. The first episode of Open House New York aired on Saturday, June 9th and shooting on NYKB locations will commence later this month and likely into August. Open House New York is being shown on Saturdays on NBC 4 NY at 6 a.m. with several repeats per week.
NYKB, with two Manhattan showrooms, is New York City's leading one-stop remodeling design/build firm. The wide range, ability and, experience of NYKB's trusted professionals make it the ideal resource for busy New Yorkers who want home renovation.
