42nd Street After
Bright, white uppers mixed with navy blue lowers create this modernized, open-concept kitchen. Re-finished original wood flooring keeps this kitchen from being stark and adds a richness to the space that also marries many of the other areas of the home together. The creamy marble-inspired quartz countertops give the kitchen that much sought after clean and sleek look, keeping this kitchen perfectly uniform and easy to maintain. This kitchen renovation required a total investment of $100k; however, it involved adding a powder room to the main floor and the removal of a load-bearing wall. The kitchen started as a small room with too many doors with no real work flow. We turned the basement staircase so it opened into the living room and moved the exterior door to give a much better area to work with. The project took 8 weeks in the construction phase, with the biggest hurdles being opening the space to a previous addition and changing the stairs. What began as an addition, turned into a re-space within the footprint of the house to hone in on the investment cost.
