Before & After in the City: The Kitchen, Part 2

Time for some after pictures from my aunt and uncle's Manhattan co-op. I hope you've been enjoying this series!

The goal here wasn't to do a total renovation, but to do a freshening up. At the end of the project, my aunt says they stood in the kitchen and felt like they had a whole new room.

Everyone things the window area came out amazingly better than planned. The contractor, NOT the designer, came up with the idea to do this area this way. This is where the designer also pulled a switch in their tile. Not cool.

The floors are a huge improvement, too. I think they're marble.

The new soffit lighting and molding works looks like it was meant to be there all along.


  1. Oh, very cool. I am a sucker for renovations and before and after, I just can't get enough! I wish I had met my husband before he built our house, I'm constantly renovating in my mind, and it's still pretty new! Anyway, glad I happened into your bloggy world, I'm definitely following! Can't wait to see more! Cheers!

  2. Wow, that looks amazing! That window area worked out perfectly.

  3. I before/after stories, esp ones that go right.

  4. Major improvement! Love the "after"!!!

  5. What is that water thing? It is just for decoration?
