- New York, NY
- U.S. Owner
- My room makeover::
- We bought a loft condo in Chelsea last fall, assuming we'd do a few touch ups but otherwise move right in. Once the owner fully vacated, we realized the space was a bit rough and our ambitious were far greater.
We hired an architect in December and got to work on plans, permits and condo approvals which took a few months, and finally started in March. We finished in May with what we call "Phase 1" as we've yet to fully re-do the kitchen and two bathrooms.
- My makeover advice::
- Definitely consider hiring an architect and designer. We should have sought specialized help on things like lighting, but having a good rapport with our architect and our contractor definitely helped move things along.
- What I love most about my new space::
- By opening the wall and adding overhead lighting, we definitely enjoy much more natural light. A huge win.
