Prewar Partial Contemporary Reno with Patio Remodel
This apartment needed a major transformation of the open area on the first floor including floors, Kitchen, Stair Railings and ceiling level problems. The result: we created a beautiful contemporary, entertaining space for this couple by modifying an already open plan and gutting the old outdoor space and installed a new porcelain patio and cedar fencing with LED lighting.

The Story Behind This Prewar Partial Contemporary Renovation
This apartment needed a major renovation transformation of the open area on the first floor including floors, Kitchen, Stair Railings and ceiling level problems. We kept the appliances in the same location putting back a vented hood, gas range, a vented washer/dryer and lots of adjustments to the ceiling, island at counter height level with popup outlets and charging stations among other things!
Eat-In Kitchen Reno
This eat-in kitchen renovation included removing soffits and cabinetry over the island, my custom cabinetry adding drawer microwave under cabinet LED lighting, resulting in more storage overall along with a built in Hutch with glass upper cabinet doors across from the seated island. Ceiling recessed lighting was key, as was the gut reno of the outdoor patio!!
Updating Stair Railings & Red Oak Flooring
Removing the stair railings to the second floor, and replacing them with a custom, simplified railing design opened everything. We installed wider plank, rift and quarter sawn red oak floors to match the existing stair wood species, and finished them in a natural low sheen.
We created a beautiful contemporary, entertaining space for this couple by modifying an already open plan and gutting the old outdoor space and installed a new porcelain patio and cedar fencing with LED lighting.
They were simply amazed and we are thrilled that they love this space!!
