Before & After: Small Changes Make a Big Difference in a Little Kitchen — Sweeten

Last week, we witnessed the transformation of Elizabeth’s tiny bathroom, and today we’re taking a look at the rest of her tw0-bedroom co-op. In the bedroom, Gennadiy added some smart storage — a cubby on top of the closet that takes advantage of the apartment’s 11 foot ceilings. When Elizabeth bought the place, she originally planned to only remodel the bathroom, but her contractor helped her realize that with only a few small changes, she could have a whole apartment that she was really happy with. Little changes make a big difference in the living room, too — Gennadiy cleaned up some of the molding details, and replaced dated light fixtures. Convinced by Gennadiy’s vision, Elizabeth signed on for the extra upgrades — and wound up with a whole new apartment, all within her original budget. You can read more about Elizabeth’s apartment remodel, and see more pictures, on Sweeten. Because in New York, who doesn’t need a little extra space? A new countertop and backsplash, along with new undercabinet lighting, completes the transformation.
