Before & After: Brooklyn Brownstone Kitchen Renovation

I love a good before and after and in the case of my #ProjectParkSlope clients, the change after their kitchen reno was quite dramatic as you can see in these side by side photos. Here’s a quick look at the transformation.


This before shot is from the home’s real estate listing. The house was originally built in 1876 and although this pictures is actually fairly recent, the kitchen looked like it was still stuck in 1876! It was originally designed as an open space with a much smaller cooking/refrigeration/sink area to the left and this dining area that you see on the right. The clients wanted to have one beautiful, massive kitchen with their cabinetry extended along the back wall for more workspace, a center island and large windows along the back wall with doors leading out onto their patio…

Here is a progress shot from during the renovation. You can see that the original doors and windows were ripped out, the giant mirror was removed (relocated to the new dining area just outside the kitchen), and new window and door frames added which mimicked the original architectural details
