The Best Kitchen
in New York
by Editorial Staff
New York contracting is all about space: where to find it, who has it, and how much it’s going to cost. So it’s no surprise that New York contracting comes with the struggle to find a skilled contractor who has worked on small spaces and has the craft to bring a sense of spaciousness to them. Below you’ll find a list of 15 of the best of New York kitchen contractors. Several of these firms have worked on New York’s finest buildings and residences.
They were chosen based on their level of expertise, the extent of their previous experience, their most notable projects, and their ability to bring the most out of the space available. Design-build firms are common on this list, as are companies with their very own showrooms. There are also a few who stand out with their very own unique processes and streamlined approaches.

Paula McDonald Design Build anchors its design and construction philosophy in simplicity and functionality. The firm is led by its namesake Paula, an experienced designer with an extensive background in fine arts. Together with her skilled team, she has provided a streamlined approach to normally complex and challenging renovations. With over two decades of experience, the firm’s team has worked on everything from lobbies to extravagant master bathrooms; they specialize in complete apartment transformations. The firm is also an expert in working around New York residences’ often cramped spaces. To further bolster its design knowledge, the firm aligns itself with organizations like the NKBA and the American Society of Interior Designers. A proud recipient of the National Master Design for Remodeling Award, the firm has been distinguished numerous times for its architecture and renovations.
It has also been featured several times in Remodeler Magazine and Qualified Remodeler. Its portfolio provides insight into a gallery of modern transitional kitchens. We are particularly impressed with this kitchen, where the firm made use of an open floor concept and emphasized clean lines. The firm added hints of earthy tones to give it pops of color, along with an installation of sleek contemporary cabinetry kept off to one side of the room so as to make it appear larger than it actually is.
