Brooklyn Studio Update Ideas?

Good Questions

Q: We are buying this studio in need of lots of work. I need ideas and help with all of the things you would need to make this place livable. We plan to replace the floor with laminate, paint walls, and update the bathroom and closet doors (not standard sizes). Any help with suggestions on how to paint, use the space, upgrade electric (only plugs, not overhead lighting), window dressings, design services in Brooklyn that won't break the bank, etc would be very helpful — we are looking for economical, green and nice. Modern practical is our style. This studio is in Brooklyn, so resources in that area would be appreciated, including contractors/stores.
