Renovation Real Talk – July 2018
CONTEMPORARY ELEGANCE IN A PREWAR APARTMENT
We renovated this Pre-war apartment on West End Avenue, to accommodate a large family, a lot of entertaining and a recording studio. We found unused space above the existing ceiling and managed to add 12 inches to the height of the apartment, making the total ceiling height 112 inches, creating a whole new look and feel.
Unique Features of 270 West End Avenue
To illuminate shelves with absolutely no glare, recess the lighting into the shelving. It creates the perfect backlighting.
We did a lot of custom millwork throughout this apartment. As a unique treatment that makes the room look more spacious, we created floating countertops above all the cabinetry.
Luxury Flooring Refinishing:
All the Pre-war wood floors in the apartment were sanded and refinished in a rich, beautiful dark color. This helps to hide any imperfections and adds character to the entire apartment.
