NYC Kitchen Envy! An Upper West Side Kitchen Remodel That Inspires

By Tiffany Smolick


This renovation at 174 West 76th Street was a joy to complete and the results are what kitchen dreams are made of. This is a prime example of taking a space on the small side and making it feel larger than life. Every design aspect came together to create a magazine-worthy makeover. 

Our Favorite Kitchen Features 

Storage and Decor in One

The open shelving above the range is eye catching and leaves plenty of room for decoration or extra appliance storage. Open shelves have long been a go-to design trick to make a space more interesting and appear larger. MyHome’s kitchen designs are always well thought out and come with complete follow through from the very beginning to end. This means, our consultants will work with you on every aspect of the process. 

Open Shelving

Have Fun with Hardware

Stand out hardware, like gold or another metallic, is perfect for simple white or neutral cabinets in order to add some spark. It’s the best compromise for wanting some flash, but not wanting to go too bold. We have every style of kitchen accessories you could imagine in our NYC kitchen and bath showroom. Choose from modern to traditional to boho, and of course all different price points are available. 

Embrace Natural Light 

All of the cabinetry and appliances work for and with the abundance of natural light provided by this over-the-sink window. The surfaces all feature some amount of gloss to make the light bounce around the space. While this apartment is lucky enough to feature sizable kitchen window, if yours does not, have no fear! There are many ways to help a kitchen appear brighter and more airy. When it comes to renovating a kitchen in NYC, MyHome stands out as able to complete most design requests.

Creative Backsplash Concepts

This backsplash is right on trend with more and more clients requesting the backsplash reaching the bottoms of the cabinets or even higher when possible. Using the same pattern on the walls behind shelves is a creative take to be inspired by! A well-designed backsplash breathes life into any plain kitchen. As you know, kitchens are the heartbeat of every home. This is why a well-designed kitchen not only adds value to your home, it also adds to the quality of life for you and your family.
