You're house hunting in New York City and you have finally found the perfect home. The location is exactly what you were looking for, and the space itself is nice. There’s only one problem: The apartment needs a renovation before you call it home.
IF YOU’RE READING THIS, YOU PROBABLY DON’T HAVE TO IMAGINE THE SITUATION ABOVE. IT’S LIKELY YOUR REALITY.
YOU HAVE YOUR HEART SET ON A NEW APARTMENT, TOWN-HOME, OR BROWNSTONE IN MANHATTAN OR BROOKLYN, BUT YOU KNOW THAT BEFORE YOU MAKE THE MOVE, YOU NEED TO REMODEL THE KITCHEN, BATHROOM, OR EVEN THE ENTIRE UNIT.
In that case, you've come to the right place. At Gallery Kitchen & Bath, we offer an end-to-end renovation solution for busy NYC professionals looking for a trusted partner who can handle every aspect of their renovations for them, from design and demolition to the full build and finishes. As a full-service design and build firm in NYC, we aim to provide maximum value by acting as a true partner and consultant. We’re not just a means to an end.
When you choose to work with Gallery Kitchen & Bath, you will receive a full, dedicated team to help bring your vision to life from start to finish. We take on the tedious tasks of procuring permits, obtaining board approvals, procuring and delivering finishes, and making sure that your project stays on time and on budget.
With Gallery, you can rest easy knowing that we handle complicated tasks like procuring permits from the Department of Buildings, ensuring your historic property is updated according to guidelines, buying and transporting materials, and more. You’ll also have full access to the agenda and the ability to communicate with us throughout the project via our project management software tool.
On top of all that, you know what you’re paying for from the beginning. Our proposals are thorough, so you won’t have to deal with surprise charges in the middle of your build. Plus, our architect and design services are included in your cost — no additional fees required.

Each of our customers is assigned a dedicated team that stays with you from the beginning to the end of the project. The team comprises a designer, a project manager, a foreman, and a liaison/project coordinator.
DO YOU HANDLE THE ENTIRE PROJECT?
Yes, we handle the entire process from end to end, from architectural drafting, permits, and board approval to design, material procurement, and the build.
ARE YOU LICENSED AND INSURED?
Yes, we are fully licensed with the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs and the New York City Department of Buildings. We also carry lead-safe and Occupational Safety and Health Administration certifications, as well as all other necessary certifications. Finally, we carry insurance that’s significantly higher than the required limits ($5 million in general liability, $1 million in workers’ compensation, and $3 million in auto).
DO YOU CHARGE FOR DESIGN WORK?
No. Our design work is a value add.
DO YOU SUBCONTRACT?
Every single person working in your home, with the exception of three trades, is a Gallery KBNY employee. The only exceptions are architects, licensed plumbers, and licensed electricians. There’s a very practical reason for this: These three licensed tradespeople never work as employees for contractors, as it’s not economically feasible. That said, we use a handful of firms with which we have long histories, and they act as an extension of our company.
DO YOU DO MORE THAN JUST KITCHEN & BATHROOMS?
Yes, we are a full-service interior contractor. We happily tackle every aspect of interior work, not just bathrooms and kitchens.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR CONSULTATIONS?
No, our consultations are free.

DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT MINIMUM?
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN REGARD TO MY PROJECT’S FINAL COST?
Every project is different — there’s no one- size-fits-all answer. Generally speaking, we take a consultative approach with our clients when it comes to budget and the scope of work needed. Our first step is to understand the goal of your renovation, what’s most important to you, and what you have in mind for your budget. From there, we make suggestions on how we can bring your project to life within your budget.
DOES YOUR PROCESS TYPICALLY INCLUDE CHANGE ORDERS?
No. We operate a “change order-free” model. That means there are no surprises or hidden costs once your project gets underway. We take the time upfront to incorporate every part of your renovation into the initial proposal and give you an accurate estimate rather than offering an attractive number at first and hitting you with a change order in the middle of the project.
DO YOU ONLY WORK WITH SPECIFIC BRANDS?
No. We are brand-agnostic and we don’t limit your selections to what we carry in our design studio. Our team can procure any item from anywhere at no additional cost.
DO YOU HAVE REFERENCES OR REVIEWS I CAN READ?
Yes! Our clients are our biggest advocates, and we’re lucky to have received five-star ratings on Houzz and Google by almost 100 total reviews.We also have several examples of our projects in the "Our Work" section of our website.
We are extremely proud that we’ve been named “Best in Customer Service” by Houzz for 2016-2019. We’ve also won Houzz’s “Best in Design” award for 2019 and Sweeten’s “Excellence in Contracting” award in 2018, and we made Home Builder Digest’s “Top 12 Remodeling Contractors in NYC” list.

After a long interview process of remodeling our home we decided to go with Gallery Kitchen & Bath for our long overdue bathroom project. It started off as our master bathroom renovation, we increased the size of our master, and then decided to add a walk-in closet. We love our new bathroom design and our office contact at Gallery, Joseph, who was extremely helpful with our selections and keeping us from overspending (in addition to Avi who worked on the design of our project and managed it). A few items arrived damaged and he let us know right away and re-ordered them, which we appreciated. We have since decided to remodel our kitchen as well because of how nice and modern our new space is. We were also inspired from some of the other kitchen projects we saw on their instagram. The kitchen is nearly complete and looks amazing. They started the renovations in the beginning of November and estimate about 2 more weeks until completion. I am impressed by their work super which was done efficiently and neatly. We agreed to having our home photographed and can't wait to be featured on their website! We plan to use Gallery Kitchen & Bath again for our other bathroom after we have some time to enjoy our new one! I recommend them with 5 stars!
This was the second renovation project I had undertaken and, based on my first with a different contractor, I knew that there were three key elements I would need: (1) quality of work; (2) someone who would handle everything eliminating the need for my having to quarterback; and (3) responsiveness. Avi and his team far surpassed all three. After doing the requisite diligence to interview contractors and their past clients, comparing price points, services offered and experiences had by others, I opted to go with Gallery. During the contracting phase, they were very attentive to my questions and objectives expressed. Once the work started, Avi and Colin were in regular contact to advise me of progress and matters requiring my input. I found that the site they uses for these exchanges, to centralize all of the information about my project and share progress photos was also instrumental in keeping everyone aligned and avoid miscommunications. The care and professionalism with which they did their work was bar none, and there as always someone to answer my questions and address any concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend Avi/Gallery or use them again.
