JOB DESCRIPTION Brooklyn Co-Op Kitchen Renovation
PROJECT DATE October, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
My husband and I were ready to renovate the kitchen in our Brooklyn Co-op and we wanted to hire a team that would manage the entire project from start to finish. After looking at several companies, we hired Gallery Kitchen and Bath (GKB) for their beautiful portfolio and largely due to the attentiveness of Peter, the project manager. This was a quality we hoped we would continue to see throughout the project once hired and Peter, Frank (the designer), and their team did not disappoint. From the beginning of the process and throughout, they were always available to answer questions, suggest creative solutions, help make decisions, and keep the project moving along. If any issues or concerns came up, GKB was on top of it and very responsive. The quality and the details of the work itself were stellar and if there was something we didn’t like, the team stopped, regrouped, came back, and made it perfect. GKB were great partners in creating our dream kitchen. We are so happy with the results. Peter, Frank, and their team did a wonderful job. We would hire them again in a heartbeat.
JOB DESCRIPTION Completely at Ease Working with Gallery
PROJECT DATE July, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We are very pleased with the gut renovation of our four-piece bathroom, completed by Aaron Popowsky at Gallery Restoration. Communication was the most important factor to us in selecting a contractor, and Aaron delivered on all fronts. He prepared his proposal when he said he would (the only contractor out of three to do so), and answered our calls, emails and texts at all times -- even weekends! Although we were out of the city during the majority of the work, Aaron uploaded onto the private portal photos of each day's progress. He was also able to guide us in the design process. He and Jonathan brought samples to our apartment; not once did we need to visit a showroom. We were completely at ease working with Gallery Restoration, and there was no attempt at upselling or unethical behavior. The completed job is of high quality, and we love and are very happy with the outcome.

JOB DESCRIPTION Everything We Hoped For
PROJECT DATE June, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We were very impressed with the quality of the workmanship and the attention paid to the details in our small New York City apartment. Jonathan, Peter and their great staff of contractors really helped us through the process. We were informed of every job that was scheduled on any given day. They were also very helpful with the whole selection process. We would highly recommend Gallery Kitchen & Bath - we are enjoying our new kitchen - it turned out to be everything we hoped for.
JOB DESCRIPTION Full Service, Experienced and Well Staffed Firm
PROJECT DATE September, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
TLDR; trustworthy, patient, reasonable, professional. They're a full service shop, so I'd just recommend that you talk to them and if you see a rapport and things work out financially and logistically then hire them. Long version: I hired Gallery Kitchen and Bath after interviewing 3 or 4 other top rated companies. It was my first time dealing with contractors for a job of this size so I was anxious, and my main criteria in gauging the companies was their ability to listen, communicate, and of course if they're trustworthy. I decided on GKBNY because they showed the most patience with us when discussing the project (before signing) and that really set them apart from the other companies we talked to. GKBNY also seemed more willing to think and consider doing things outside of the box when it came to what we wanted done in the apt. In retrospect signing up with them was the right decision and we are very happy with the results. Because we opted for some custom materials and solutions, and because we changed some of our choices halfway through the renovation process, everything ended up taking much longer and was much harder than I anticipated. To their credit GKBNY were super professional throughout. Where anyone else would have been justified to show some frustration or demand more payment, they opted for simply working patiently around our requirements and around our schedule. On a couple of occasions there were some things done differently from what we asked (mostly due to miscommunications, not unexpected considering the size of the job). But how they handled these scenarios also sets them apart from other contractors I've dealt with in the past. What I've seen other contractors do when faced with the possibility that they've made a mistake is to immediately go on the defensive and become confrontational. GKBNY on the other hand calmly looked at what had happened, and quickly acknowledged, apologized, and addressed the problem. That's a sign of professionalism, and personally based on that experience alone I'd hire them again if I had to, simply because I trust them to be honest about what they do. Also I should mention that my apartment is in a high-rise coop. GKBNY handled all interactions with my board regarding insurance, notice letters to neighbors, working with the building's maintenance staff, etc. All in all they're a full service, experienced and well staffed firm that takes their reputation seriously and I am happy to recommend them.
JOB DESCRIPTION Gut Renovation of Pre-War Apartment
PROJECT DATE January, 2019
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
GKB did a gut renovation in our pre-war apartment and we could not have been happier with the results. The project was completed on time, communication was always open and clear and the quality of work is outstanding! From the initial interview with Jonathan, we were impressed by the process, professionalism and the service level. Through out the planning and renovation, Jonathan and Peter made sure we were up to date on the progress, stayed within the budget and were accommodating our needs. There were no delays and no issues. The team never took any short cuts and the quality of work is very high! Jonathan did a great job advising us on many decisions that made our apartment better and more comfortable.
JOB DESCRIPTION High-End Gut Renovation of Soho Loft
PROJECT DATE December, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
Gallery did an excellent job with a high-end gut renovation of our loft space in Soho. They were professional, straight-forward, excellent communicators and extremely efficient in their resourcing and project planning. All communications and decisions went through the BuilderTrend app which provided complete transparency to the process. Our move-in date was only a few weeks behind the Day 1 plan, which is outstanding for a 4 month job and considering we requested a few scope changes. Gallery was also great about accommodating those scope changes. Last, they maintained constant contact and worked with us until we were 100% satisfied with the punch list. My wife and I are extremely happy with the results. We would not hesitate to use them on any future projects.
JOB DESCRIPTION Highly Recommended if You’re Not Able to Monitor Work In Person
PROJECT DATE January, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We purchased a house in NY that needed a kitchen and bathroom gut renovation, daunting in itself but made even more challenging by the fact that this all had to be done while we were still living in California. Eli and Jonathan made the process easy and seamless. We greatly appreciated the progress photos and ease of selecting materials via BuilderTrend, and Eli was always responsive to our inquiries and concerns. He and Jonathan made several suggestions that we would have never thought of but turned out lovely. The builders they contracted with were discreet, on schedule (so important when moving cross-country) and did beautiful work. We would highly recommend this firm to anyone, particularly those who do not have time or are not able to monitor the work in person. We look forward to working with this team in the future!
JOB DESCRIPTION I Finally Have a Contractor I’ll Use for ALL My Upcoming Projects
PROJECT DATE August, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
I must start off by saying that I finally have a contractor that I will use for ALL of my upcoming projects. Before starting with Gallery Kitchen & Bath I had almost given up on doing any additional work to my house due to past experiences with other contractors. I gave Gallery a chance because their project manager Peter H convinced me by his professionalism and knowledge. He spent a lot of time with us and was very patient as well. I took a chance and it finally worked. From the beginning their words and actions agreed. There were times that we had some bumps or issues and we were a bit nervous and annoyed. However, their reaction to those issues and the adjustments that they made were timely and satisfactory which made use happy. We completed 3 kitchens, 2 bathrooms, and a full basement in less than 4 months! They just finished and their work came out great!! Their designer Jonathan helped us tremendously with our selections. Peter was always available via email or telephone. Their office staff, specifically Elizabeth assisted us with the ordering of materials throughout the project. She was on top of tracking our orders and making sure they came on time. To conclude, we had some small items that needed adjustments even after we were completed and they came back to fix them right away. These are all the reasons why Gallery Kitchen & Bath is our choice and should be if you are looking to complete a project quickly and efficiently.
JOB DESCRIPTION I Got The Bathrooms and Closet I’d Been Dreaming About
PROJECT DATE March, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
It took me over a year to decide who to hire to redo my 1 1/2 baths and make a walk in closet. But Peter was the best. He stayed with me patiently while I changed my mind about exactly what I would do and totally won me over. He was with me every step of the way making sure that my concerns and preferences were always addressed. The work took a bit longer than expected but only because they found a major pipe problem that the building had to cover and they took care of this too. It was worth paying a little extra to have an all inclusive price for the labor and all materials and I felt like they provided a very good range of quality, choices and advice. It was a relief not to have to spend hours at stores to pick out items. I felt comfortable having them take charge and manage the project (I even took a vacation during this time) but it is always good to communicate with the contractors working on the project so they know exactly what you want. They use Buildertrend so you are able to track everything related to the project making it so easy and transparent. There were a couple of fixes that needed to be done in the end but they diligently followed up on them and I'm grateful to Frank and David for their support on these. I never felt frustrated, nickled and dimed or abandoned. They definitely aspire to do a great and not just good job and want you to be happy and are very conscientious about your home and keeping it clean. And in the end, I got the bathrooms (including rain shower) and closet I had been dreaming about and my guests keep commenting on what a great job they did. When I'm ready for it, I'll want them to do my kitchen next!
JOB DESCRIPTION Impeccable Work Finished Ahead of Schedule
PROJECT DATE November, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
I loved working with everyone from Gallery Kitchen and Bath from the designers to the project manager, especially Peter who is exceptionally knowledgeable and easy to work with. Their work turned out impeccable and they finished ahead of the time line. They communicated with me every step of the way and utilized an online system which made it easy to choose pieces for the project and stay on top of the day to day happenings. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a remodel.

Jonathan and his team were beyond amazing! Cannot recommend him and his team enough!

JOB DESCRIPTION Issues Come Up, But These Guys Handled Them

RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
From the start, we wanted a crew that could do full service (design and build). After looking at some other designs, we really liked what Gallery offered in the way of aesthetics. Then, during the entire process the team was all over it! Issues always come up, but it's how these guys handled them that make me here writing a positive review. Can't recommend them highly enough.
JOB DESCRIPTION Magazine-Worthy Kitchen Renovation in West Village

RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
My husband and I hired Gallery to renovate and transform the kitchen in our west village co-op. From the moment I reached out to Gallery via Houzz their professionalism and commitment to the project shined through. Our rep, Eli Zikry, walked us through, and held our hand, the entire process,including the design, building approval process and construction. The project was finished early and on budget and the result is magazine-worthy. I can not recommend Gallery enough and I would recommend them without hesitation.

My experience with Gallery Restoration could not of been better. From the initial conversation with Aaron, the design process and the completion of the work everything was done with the customer in mind.

Special thanks to Peter, Jonathan, Antonio and Frank for their expertise.
JOB DESCRIPTION No Hidden Costs
PROJECT DATE January, 2018
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We interviewed about 8 different companies before hiring a contractor for our apartment renovations. We immediately clicked with Peter Hartofolis, our project manager, and although Gallery was not the cheapest option, we chose them based on their upfront billing format, high client reviews and depth of knowledge after speaking with Peter and Aaron. We loved how it was a "one stop shop" and were paying one bill, upfront. There were no hidden costs/fees so budgeting for our project was very simple. The project took two months longer than anticipated but to be fair, we were forewarned. Everything was very transparent and we could not be happier with the results! Our apartment looks exactly how we imagined! Thank you!!
JOB DESCRIPTION Online System Makes All the Choices Manageable
PROJECT DATE August, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We are so happy with the results of our renovation. Gallery does beautiful work, down to the smallest detail. They were easy to work with and very responsive to questions and requests. It can be so overwhelming to make all the decisions involved in renovating. Their online system offering selections in a very organized way, make all the choices much more manageable. And we loved the photos of the daily progress that they put online. Their time estimates were right on and we completed on schedule. But most of all, it's the craftsmanship that we are most happy with. We would recommend Gallery highly.
JOB DESCRIPTION Our Dream Home Renovation!
PROJECT DATE August, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
This was our first home renovation so we needed a lot of guidance (kitchen, bath, basement, living, hallway, exterior waterproofing). The utmost important to us is finding a reliable trust worthy contractor and weeding out the bad ones. Gallery responded to our inquiry right away and convinced us they were the one. We wanted to find a builder that would take on the many requests, concerns, and needs as first time renovators. Also, we didn't want to find multiple contractors who worked on specific parts of the house. Gallery was all-in and can handle all type of jobs. We started with the exterior work (waterproofing and staircase) in August. The bulk of the interior work was done in the Fall/ Winter. There were some hiccups along the way but Gallery made sure to take care of it right away. Home renovation is never a straight A to B path so we weren't prepared when it veered off. During the last few weeks, Gallery made sure to follow through with any outstanding touch ups. Eli and crew went above and beyond in giving us our dream home renovation! Note/ Advice: When making your selections, be very complete with regard to every detail. - Accessible via phone, email, or construction management app. - Readiness to meet on weekends and work with your schedule. - All-inclusive cost. No hidden costs at the end. - Friendly working relationship. - Helpful in finding and recommending material resources. Eli, Post-Its! 🙂
JOB DESCRIPTION Our First Renovation!
PROJECT DATE May, 2014
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
My partner and I chose Gallery for a complete renovation of our kitchen, bathroom, and hallway closet. Since we had no prior experience with an apartment renovation, we believed Gallery's full service approach would work best for us. We selected them following a lengthy phone conversation with Aaron and an impressive presentation from Peter, our outstanding project manager. Our initial confidence in them was borne out through the entire project. They deliver what they promise. Peter and the whole team, which included office administrator Colin and project foreman David, are top notch professionals. I would particularly point to the level of communication - the team was always available by phone or email or text, updated all project information to the Buildertrend website, and quickly addressed any issues that arose. With the project now complete, we are thrilled with our beautiful, modern and newly enlarged kitchen, our shiny new bathroom and our combination pantry/clothing closet. Job well done Gallery!
JOB DESCRIPTION Our Scandinavian Mid-Century Apartment Gets a Lot of Compliments
PROJECT DATE July, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
Forget about any horror story you have heard about contractors. Stop right here. This is the design-build contractor you want to HIRE. It was a breeze working with Aaron and Jonathan on our apartment combination project. We looked at quite a few design-build companies and chose Gallery because of the great communication and the fact that they were able to manage material purchasing and product selection for us. With this being our first project of this kind we were originally uncertain about the "all-in" total budget approach. Aaron patiently explained it and clarified all questions we had. We are very pleased that we stayed on budget throughout the process even though the project went 6 weeks over. Gallery is not the type of contractor who will bill you for unforeseen little changes. They were honest, took responsibility and pride in their work. During the construction, we got to know all the workers and really enjoyed having them around. They were respectful and diligent. Most importantly they were very experienced and able to give good input and make decisions on the spot. We lived onsite for the second half of the project. While it was obviously messy and frustrating at times, the crew did their best to make it as easy as possible for us. We truly appreciated that. Of course, like with any project of this scope, there were hiccups, changes and delays, but our project manager Jonathan stayed on top of every problem that arose and reacted fast. We were also very happy with his kitchen design and construction advice. Overall, we are very satisfied with our choice of contractor and how the project turned out. Our 3 bed, 2 bath Scandinavian mid-century apartment gets a lot of compliments, Everyone asks for our contractor's number. RECOMMEND!
JOB DESCRIPTION Paid Special Attention to the Details
PROJECT DATE June, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We had to gut renovate our existing bathroom because of a water leak. We hired Peter and Jonathan at Gallery Kitchen and Bath because we didn't want to deal with second rate contractor again. Throughout the entire project, they were available to answer all of our questions and concerns. They paid special attention to the details that we wanted such as installing a cove lighting system and a mirrored medicine cabinet light. I was pleased that they guided us to high quality products when we were choosing our materials and fixtures. And that there were no hidden costs at the end. Overall I am pleased on how our bathroom turned out. We recommend them to anyone looking for a professional contractor!

The team was exceptional. If you're lucky enough to have Peter as your main contact, be prepared to be swept off your feet. Excellent customer service and a desire to get your project right. I could not be happier with the work that they performed. I am very attentive to detail, and they were able to fix any issues and ultimately create a space that looked exactly as I envisioned. They use high-quality contractors, and have a great team in the office as well.
JOB DESCRIPTION Prepared to go Above and Beyond Other Contractors
PROJECT DATE December, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
After my wife and I purchased our West Village condo, we knew a renovation was first on our list of priorities. As first time homeowners and first time renovators, the project seemed daunting and fraught with risk. After a thorough search and meeting numerous firms, we found Gallery Kitchen and Bath and at Gallery we met Eli who from the beginning was prepared to go above and beyond other contractors we met to make sure our vision came to fruition. From start to finish, Eli and team were hands on through the decision making process, carefully stepping us through our decisions and their implications. This was a huge relief with our limited experience with so many decisions ahead of us. From getting the project kicked off early, to working through initial challenges and mid-scope adjustments, we are extraordinarily pleased with the professionalism and quality of the entire Gallery crew. We are delighted to say that not only was our project was completed on schedule the end result exceeded all expectations. Additionally, the value of communication is not lost on the Gallery crew, Eli especially. We never felt in the dark about any aspect of the project and had assistance whenever needed. We are pleased to say that coming home is now the greatest part of every day. Whether it's our beautiful kitchen, our gorgeous bath, our brand new floors or any of the other 'small details' that went into our home, nothing was left unfinished. We highly recommend Gallery as a top tier design / build firm.
JOB DESCRIPTION So Pleased with Gorgeous Result and Usability
PROJECT DATE September, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We could not be more thrilled with our gut renovated master bathroom, thanks to the impeccable work of Gallery Kitchen and Bath. Eli, our amiable and devoted project manager, was always in touch with us providing updates on the bathroom's status, as well as thoroughly communicating with the residents of the building about water shutdowns or noise. We started with a very outdated bathroom that had water damage and then discovered rotted beams after the demolition. Gallery dealt expertly with both problems and provided multiple waterproofing systems to prevent any future damage. The contractors who work for them were kind, efficient, and easy to co-exist with for the duration of the 5 week project. When a section of tile that we hadn't noticed looked off to Eli, he had the tile worker re-do it to be sure the job was of the highest caliber. Gallery offers guidance on bathroom design and fixtures, via their very helpful app, and we are so pleased with the gorgeous result and the usability of the bath, shower, toilet, and vanity. We've even had friends come by from out of state and tell us they'd like to mimic our bathroom in their house! Construction is a pain in the ass, especially when you are living in the construction zone, but we're so happy we chose Gallery, we loved working with Eli, and the end result makes us smile every day.
JOB DESCRIPTION Superb Job Renovating Once-Decrepit Brooklyn Heights Apartment
PROJECT DATE August, 2017
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
I enthusiastically recommend Gallery and especially our project manager Eli Zikry, who did a superb job renovating our once-decrepit 2-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights. The project involved a full kitchen and bathroom renovation, as well as new electrical, refinished floors, new doors, new baseboards, and some rearranged bedroom closets. We had never renovated before and were quite nervous about the process but Eli was incredible. He and his team made the process of choosing elements for our renovation extremely simple and intuitive, always offering a guiding hand when needed but also deferring to our choices. They also handled the process of getting necessary permits and co-op approvals seamlessly with negligible involvement from us. But, of course, it was when the project got going that Eli really distinguished himself. He beat the projected time frame for getting the work done by two weeks, and although our renovation in an old and neglected building presented several hiccups, he did everything in our scope of work within the agreed-upon budget. In fact, he did more: for example, when he realized that various things we hadn't discussed were going to be a possibility -- such as crown molding in the kitchen and recessed lighting in the bathroom -- he did them free of charge. What is more, when I gave him the wrong paint color for my daughter's bedroom and his team started to paint that color, he got the paint I wanted and corrected the "mistake" (which had actually been my mistake) and didn't charge me for that either. Throughout the process he was absolutely dependable, courteous and professional. I'd choose him again 100 times over and definitely recommend him to anyone considering a similar project.
JOB DESCRIPTION They WILL Make It Right
PROJECT DATE July, 2016
RATING 4.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
While Aaron, Peter, John and the rest of the team at Gallery were amazing, their contractors were ok to great. Some of their work is amazing and it really shows, other times it was a lot of tiny fixes and fine tuning that really shouldn't have had to be said. A lot of alignment issues, scratches and the mistakes. They WILL however make it right and try to fix/replace things that are clearly broken and or scratched, so as long as you keep on top of things, and point out issues, they will fix it.
JOB DESCRIPTION Very Good E-System for Reviewing and Approving
PROJECT DATE June, 2018
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
Gallery recently renovated our apartment in NYC and did an excellent job. We recommend them without hesitation. We first contacted Gallery before purchasing our apartment. We wanted an estimate on the costs to renovate, to take into account in our purchasing decision. We then met Eli for the first time. Eli listened to what we had in mind and made suggestions. He gave us an estimate for the renovation we were considering. We then began working with Gallery on renovating our pre-war apartment. Gallery gut renovated the kitchen, baths and a few other rooms. The work took time, as expected. Gallery handled every aspect of the NYC Dep’t of Buildings submissions, architect drawings, etc. They worked with our co-op to obtain the necessary approvals. Our main contact was Eli, who was great, along with Jonathan and Aaron. All were terrific. As was Sam at Gallery who we dealt with often on updates, sometimes daily. Gallery has a very good E-system where selections are posted, reviewed and approved. Same with progress photos and the like. Emails and updates are sent often, sometimes daily. Gallery also worked with our decorator as the renovation progressed, and the decorator commented positively on the work done by Gallery’s people. You could see everyone involved wanted a good result, a final product that all would be happy with. And we are. The apartment turned out beautiful and Gallery did a great job. Thank you Eli, Jonathan, Aaron and Sam.

I hired Gallery Restoration for my apartment renovation. I pretty much took a hands off policy and let them control the project. They were superb. They handled all necessary approvals for a very smooth process and board approval. Eli, my project manager/contractor was amazing. We had a few hiccups but they were handled professionally and everything always worked out. The renovation turned out amazing. I'm very please with the quality of the workmanship.

JOB DESCRIPTION We Were Total Rookies and Made the Right Choice
PROJECT DATE August, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
My husband and I hired Gallery Kitchen after our first contractor basically disappeared. We were total rookies in renovations and were desperate at that point. But boy, did we make the right choice. From our first meeting with Eli we felt much more confident and at ease. Eli was extremely helpful throughout the whole project. He was always reachable via phone and always on top of things. Jose, our foreman, was very courteous, always on time and an expert in all reno areas. Project started on time and was actually progressing much faster than scheduled until… we decided to go with different countertops than originally selected. That extended the project but it actually ended almost exactly on the day it was scheduled to end originally! We can't say there were no hiccups on the way but they were always addressed promptly and resolved as quickly as possible. Overall we are very happy with the final result and highly recommend Gallery Kitchens for any renovation projects.
JOB DESCRIPTION We’ve Had Two Neighbors Ask for Their Contact Information
PROJECT DATE February, 2017
RATING 4.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
We're very happy to recommend Gallery Restoration, and especially Eli Zikry, our representative, after the fantastic job they did gut-renovating our kitchen. From the design plans to the finish work, they did a brilliant job. We were very happy with the original design Gallery provided--they really worked with our wishes and the restrictions of the layout, but of course once the walls were opened there were surprises. Our surprise gave us the chance to completely redo the design to have a much more favorable layout. Eli and Jonathan (the designer) were able to turn around a completely new kitchen in 24 hours. From the start of our project until completion, there where always workers in the space making progress. They were even there on two blizzard days when the city shut down. The complete redesign only cost us an extra week waiting on materials. At the end of the project everything looks so great--much better than we imagined. Our co-op board and neighbors were pleased with how clean and courteous the workers were. We've had two neighbors ask for their contact information. If we had another project we would call them in a second.

JOB DESCRIPTION Came through with everything that they promised
PROJECT DATE September, 2019
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
My experience with contractors have been horrific to say the least. I was contemplating not touching my house again. I was speaking to my girlfriend and was lucky enough to be introduced to their contractor/designer Peter. A lot of times people over sell themselves or their referrals but I was shocked when I heard of their process and couldn’t believe the level of customer service and communication. They actually came through with everything that they promised and was told to me by my girlfriend. They told me ahead of time when they felt the project was going to take slightly more time due to a plumbing problem that by the way, were true to their word and did not charge me a change order for it. I knew when things were happening and when a problem occurred. I never was in the dark about anything. Their office staff was a pleasure to work with and handled everything with paperwork and sourcing materials. Best of all I only got involved selecting and paying for the job. You will be helping yourself in a big way by hiring Peter and the crew at Gallery.
JOB DESCRIPTION Gut Renovation of Kitchen in 1875 Brownstone
PROJECT DATE September, 2019
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
With no small amount of trepidation, my wife Susan and I decided early this year that it was time to do a gut renovation of the kitchen in our Park Slope brownstone. We used Houzz to solicit proposals, and interviewed two architects and three contractors, including Gallery Kitchen & Bath. More than any of the others, GKB’s Peter Hartofilis impressed us with his knowledge, creative suggestions and enthusiasm for the project. In light of our busy work schedules, we were particularly attracted to GKB’s promise to manage the project entirely from design to demolition to construction, using their own employees and regular licensed mechanics to perform all of the work. We were left only with the responsibility to make design choices among an array of options GKB presented to us. Once we decided to go with GKB, Peter and his company negotiated a contract with us fairly and transparently, agreeing to a fixed cost and a payment schedule that has provided us meaningful control over the progress and completion of the work. Our choice of GKB was well-rewarded. From the beginning of the project, Peter and John Daskalakis, the project manager, gave us unlimited time to design the kitchen. They spent several hours with us discussing our needs and desires, proposing a menu of solutions, and taking measurements. John quickly reduced the discussions to drawings that presented a variety of design possibilities. He converted our design selections to detailed plans specifying the exact location and size of the cabinetry, plumbing, electrical switches and outlets, and kitchen appliances. Peter and John then spent several more hours with us in their studio presenting options for counter and backsplash materials and colors, introducing us to hardware selections and discussing additional design refinements. Once the kitchen design was set, the work proceeded smoothly. GKB’s workers showed up each scheduled morning and worked throughout the days under John’s attentive supervision. As one would expect with a brownstone circa 1875, there were a few unanticipated issues that arose during the work. Peter and John were available at all hours to discuss by phone or text and sort out the best solutions. On a regular basis, they discussed with us the work performed, outlined next steps and allayed our anxieties. Peter even returned our call on the day his daughter was born. They were flexible, invariably agreeing to requested adjustments. Throughout the project, Susan and I continued to live in the house, which was made possible by the workers’ consistent neatness and care. The work has been completed and we could not be more delighted with the quality work and beautiful look of our new kitchen, pantry and closets. We recommend GKB without hesitation.
JOB DESCRIPTION Long-Distance Renovation Made Easy
PROJECT DATE November, 2018
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
After purchasing our Turtle Bay apartment, we decided to renovate the kitchen and bathrooms. We thought this would be a daunting task since we reside in Florida and would be unable to oversee the project’s progress. Luckily, our realtor recommended Gallery Kitchen and Bath. Peter, Aaron, and Colin were extremely professional and transparent throughout the entire process. They sent us photos and offered Job Tracker software to show the apartment’s transformation. Someone from the team was always available to answer our questions and listen to our ideas. They were able to stay within the agreed budget and completed the project on time. We highly recommend Gallery Kitchen and Bath to anyone considering a renovation project.
JOB DESCRIPTION Manhattan Renovation with Tight Timeline

My wife and I had a great experience hiring Gallery for our two-bedroom apartment renovation in Manhattan in the Murray Hill neighborhood. We interviewed three design and build firms and although initially we were quoted a higher price by Gallery than the other two firms, when we dug into the details, we found Gallery's price to be on par. Our project manager was very direct and set the right expectations from the beginning, giving us the right quote even when other firm's numbers sounded more attractive. Throughout the process, Eli and Sam kept us in constant communication, and also made sure we were on time with our fixture selections and any decisions so that the overall project stay on track. We were on very tight timeline with a newborn due two weeks after the project completion. Eli and the Gallery team got the project done on time, and sure enough, two weeks later, the baby also came on time (1 day early), so we are ever thankful for Gallery in keeping this project in time, even taking into account unexpected incidents such as having 3 broken medicine cabinets delivered (not Gallery's issue). Eli was also very accommodating with minor changes throughout without haggling over any price changes. All in all, great experience and workmanship and great project management.

The Gallery team was great during the design process, receptive to additional requests, and brought great ideas up during the reno process. The transformation of my apartment is like night and day and I’m super happy with the results. I picked them because I didn’t want my reno to be a huge burden of my time and the full-service that they delivered totally lived up to that promise. If that is what you’re looking for, definitely give them a shot!
JOB DESCRIPTION No Reservations Entrusting Them with my Home
PROJECT DATE November, 2016
RATING 5.0
RELATIONSHIP Client
So pleased to have worked with GKB on our home renovation project. We had two woefully out of date bathrooms that needed to be gutted ASAP. From our first phone call and face to face meeting, I knew they would be the ones we would hire. They put us at ease given the scope of the project, took care of all permits and building requirements, and best of all ordering all the finishes, including custom tile. I had no reservations entrusting them with my home, and our dog (who was on site through this process). There was great communication with everyone throughout the duration of the project. Can't thank them enough for the two gorgeous bathrooms and new closets!

JOB DESCRIPTION Top Notch Professionals

My partner and I chose Gallery for a complete renovation of our kitchen, bathroom, and hallway closet. Since we had no prior experience with an apartment renovation, we believed Gallery's full service approach would work best for us. We selected them following a lengthy phone conversation with Aaron and an impressive presentation from Peter, our outstanding project manager. Our initial confidence in them was borne out through the entire project. They deliver what they promise. Peter and the whole team, which included office administrator Colin and project foreman David, are top notch professionals. I would particularly point to the level of communication - the team was always available by phone or email or text, updated all project information to the Buildertrend website, and quickly addressed any issues that arose. With the project now complete, we are thrilled with our beautiful, modern and newly enlarged kitchen, our shiny new bathroom and our combination pantry/clothing closet. Job well done Gallery!

GKB were the best! From start to finish they helped us decide how to renovate the dated bathrooms in our 1940 home. The team was always there for us, answering questions and resolving issues quickly. Their workers were also neat, clean, and respectful. We have been so happy with the result. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
JOB DESCRIPTION We Gave Them a Try and Never Looked Back

Where do I begin... I contacted GKB to discuss kitchen options. Communication was prompt and were able to meet shortly after. Once on site, the guys were incredibly knowledgeable and gave fantastic ideas for the entire house. After further discussing with my wife, we decided to give them a try. We never looked back. We had GKB do our flooring, kitchen, bathrooms and stairs. I can not thank the team enough for all the work and help. We have interviewed with plenty of contractors. These guys separated themselves way ahead of the rest. I really appreciated the input they gave, where to spend and where to save money. They really know what they are doing and are extremely organized!
