Most of our homes in New York City are small which also usually results in having other rooms that are small.
If you currently own your own apartment in NYC then you have probably entertained the idea of increasing or enhancing the space of one or more of your rooms.
We all know that remodeling a space requires lots of planning and a certain amount of cash to achieve a good result that we can happily live in. One of the most frequently used rooms in a home is the kitchen and when you have a small space it can sometimes be really hard to get motivated to utilize it at full capacity.
Nearly five million kitchens will be remodeled in the U.S. this
year, an increase of more than 10 percent over 1999,
according to a survey of 20,000 consumers by Kitchen and
Bath Business magazine. And, according to the survey,
these remodelers know exactly what they want in their
kitchens - luxury items. "Most
kitchen remodelers are experienced cooks. They've lived in one
or two previous kitchens and know what they love and
hate," said Joan McCloskey, Better Homes and Gardens
Executive Building Editor. "These remodelers are very
discriminating about style, durability, features, price
and performance on every element that comprises a kitchen. They may make tradeoffs to keep their budget in
line, but they'll sacrifice to gain some of the luxury items
that bring life to a kitchen."
