Beautifully Designed Custom Kitchen

The new homeowners planned on spending a lot of time cooking together and the kitchen needed to be outfitted to represent that function. A double oven and 36” range top were essential. We also needed to fit a French door refrigerator and dishwasher while not allowing the space to be dominated by stainless steel.

Custom Designed Living Room Cabinetry

The living room was in need of storage as well as an entertainment system. With limited space we designed a piece that integrated all of their needs. Adjustable shelves for display, drawers for knick-°©-knacks, hidden storage for sound equipment, and a center opening large enough for a 60” flat screen television.

Complete home renovation

Read the Find It. Real Estate Case Study
on 251 East 32nd Street.

After months of searching for the perfect three bedroom apartment, 3F Living’s Real Estate and Interior Design team presented this couple with the idea to marry two adjacent apartments into one large three bedroom convertible. This project began with a full gut renovation, down to the bare bones of the structural frame. Once it was opened to its maximum capacity, it was rebuilt with fresh hardwood floors, elegant moldings, white trim, new doors, custom millwork, and renewed paint.

Every inch of this 1600 square foot apartment was given a purpose in keeping with the clients’ needs. Multiple walk-in closets, two full bathrooms, three bedrooms, a fresh white kitchen, a dining room and a large-scale living area were the results.

The vintage chic feel of the apartment reflected the clients’ personal tastes and preferences. New furnishings amongst their existing repertoire were utilized throughout the rooms. Warm tones of beige and sea foam greens highlight the well-lit interior. Deep espresso and white cabinetry alike create focal points throughout each room of the residence.

The brilliant result of this well found, fixed, and furnished interior is evident upon simply taking a step through the doorway into this bright and cheerful home.
