Before & After: Brooklyn Brownstone Galley Kitchen

Before & After: Brooklyn Brownstone Galley Kitchen

The blogger known as ADD emailed us yesterday with an offer we couldn't refuse. She said, You posted my sofa today. Why not post my kitchen before and after tomorrow? Why not indeed? It is an amazing transformation and we're thrilled to share it. Just wait until you see the after…

ADD clearly has a talent for renovation. This small galley kitchen went from dark and cramped to light and cozy. It's remarkable how this identical 75 square foot room with essentially the same layout/configuration can appear so much larger and infinitely more welcoming.

A few of the smart design decisions that were made:
• The ceiling was raised and the new tall cabinets take full advantage of the new height.
• Lots more natural light is available thanks to a switch to a door with a large glass pane.
• A ceiling exhaust system saves the space that would have been taken up with a range hood.
• A counter depth fridge with a custom front panel is both visually and physically sleek.


Thanks, ADD!
