As soon as we start working together, you can rest assured that every aspect of your renovation is in careful, expert hands. Our benefits, beyond our technical expertise in renovation, center around how much value we place on keeping our clients informed while handling every step of the process. A home renovation contains many moving parts; our goal is to ensure that no part ever falls out of place.
We are an all-inclusive, full-service design-and-build firm. This means we handle everything: architectural drafting, LPC filings, board and building management approval, submitting permits to the Department of Buildings, project management, interior design – truly, everything.
Our approach is seamless as we strive to anticipate every imaginable need from the outset of a project. We put in the necessary time upfront to avoid surprises later on. That being said, if you decide something must be changed, we will accommodate your needs as efficiently and effectively as possible.
You can trust us to always maintain direct, informed communication with you. Our project management software Job Tracker lets you see daily renovation updates, approve design concepts and decor pieces, and provide feedback and ideas, all in one easy platform. You will always know as much as we do.
From galley kitchens to open concept loft kitchens, if you need a complete kitchen remodel, you’ve come to the right place. At Gallery Kitchen and Bath, one of the major things we consider for kitchen remodels is the current layout: can it be improved? If you want to maintain the classic New York galley but make some adjustments, we can get the job done. If you need to work around columns in a loft, update traditional molding in a brownstone, or take down a wall to make the kitchen and dining room feel connected, we can do it all!
We’re coining a new phrase: a “New York bathroom” now officially means “small bathroom.” In all seriousness, our expertise is in making the most out of the small spaces often found in New York apartments, but no matter the size of your bathroom remodel, we’ll work with you to create your perfect space. We’ll maximize your storage, anticipate the best traffic flow, and incorporate luxurious touches where possible, from heated floors to dual vanities to utilizing three different types of marble if that’s what your design aesthetic calls for.
Our specialty is full-scale gut renovations of condos, co-ops, brownstones, townhomes, and lofts in New York. As part of our seamless approach to renovation, we don’t do partial jobs and focus on complete remodels in your home, whether it is your kitchen, bathroom, room creation, new flooring, or any other component of an interior renovation.
Gallery’s extensive experience working in the city means that we are extremely knowledgeable about the many details involved in renovating NY properties. These details extend beyond architecture, interior design, and material selection to include understanding all the necessary permits and making sure everything is in compliance with the building board and city code. Many NY properties are pre-war buildings and some are even designated landmarks by the Landmark Preservation Commission (LPC). When renovating landmarked properties, the LPC must be notified so they can approve all materials and design choices. If you’re considering renovating a landmarked property, working with a contractor who has experience with the LPC – like we do at Gallery – is critical to successfully completing the project.
One of our most common projects is brownstone renovations, which tend to have their own unique challenges. Some are nearly 200 years old and have been renovated several times over since they were originally built, while others have barely been touched. In either case, a firm taking on the project now will either have to fix piecemeal work from previous owners or begin the process of modernizing from scratch. Our team is well-versed in handling any specific need that may arise with brownstone renovation, from asbestos removal to outdated electrical and plumbing.
Condo and co-op renovation projects are also very common in New York. We have a great deal of experience working in apartment buildings and a thorough understanding of co-op boards and their alteration agreements. When you work with Gallery, you can trust that we will adhere to your alteration agreement to a T, but that we also be your advocate for change if we really feel that we can make a solid case for an exception. We will establish a great rapport with your building’s super in order to make the renovation process as streamlined and stress-free as possible.
There’s a reason that our clients consistently say things like, “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!” Read more 5-star reviews and glowing recommendations from our clients and explore more of our work in our portfolio and on our blog, and when you’re ready, contact us to speak with one of our design consultants!
