WHO WE ARE

Imagine...

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.

WHAT TO KNOW

If you've got questions, we've got answers.
Here are some to get you started:

  • 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.

  • HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL KITCHEN RENOVATION COST?

    Four to six weeks. Read more here!

  • HOW LONG DOES A TYPICAL BATHROOM RENOVATION TAKE?

    Three to four weeks. Find out more here!

  • DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT MINIMUM?

    Yes: $75,000.

  • 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.

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.

GKB did a gut renovation of the two extremely dated bathrooms in our 1940 Bayside home. We couldn't be more pleased with the results! The process from beginning to end was facilitated by their team, who came up with great design ideas and suggestions. They were always on top of the project and responded to our questions/problems quickly, with 100% resolution. I would not hesitate to recommend them!
