Park Avenue, 65th St. | New York City

This custom kitchen renovation in Manhattan draws on abundant natural light, clean finishes, and a splash of color and warmth to complete the design.
Here’s how we designed a custom kitchen for apartment living on the Upper East Side.
Our client for this Manhattan kitchen renovation wanted to keep things clean, slick, and simple with a bright white design. We opted for a high-gloss white lacquer on the upper cabinets and did away with knobs and handles. This helps create a timeless appearance as well as uninterrupted, flat lines. The bright, warm design is carried through on the glass countertops and backsplash, which reflects light from the recessed lights built into the bottom of the upper cabinets.

The gas range fits seamlessly into the counter space and is complemented by a slim line exhaust vent above. The dual oven helps make entertaining easy, maximizing cooking space without taking away space for dining and relaxing. The bottom shelves feature a wood finish lacquer to add warmth to the overall design, bringing nature inside in a way that complements the bright, sunny windows near the dining area.

Rounding out this custom kitchen project is a wet bar that incorporates frosted glass doors and a metal nickel frame—adding a modern pop to the overall look, feel, and function of this distinct kitchen.
