Kitchens Under $75,000 Brooklyn Brownstone KIMBERLY NEUHAUS Neuhaus Design Architecture, PC, Brooklyn NY At 63 square feet, the footprint of the kitchen in this Brooklyn, NY brownstone was the main challenge for designer Kimberly Neuhaus of Neuhaus Design Architecture, PC. The clients desired a kitchen with a design and finishes more in keep- ing with their taste, and a large range to keep up with cooking and entertaining. Neuhaus needed to maximize storage within the tiny kitchen, as well as increase the sense of light and openness to make the space appear larger. As part of a larger renovation of the brownstone, the designer also wanted to improve the connection and integration between the kitchen and the adjacent room. Large vertical cabinetry and a soffit that previously closed off a portion of the kitchen from the adjacent dining area were removed, allowing for both a visual and physical connection. The cooktop was also removed from the peninsula so that the barrier of a hot stove no longer stopped guests who wanted to visit across the counter with the person cooking. Instead, a Wolf range and hood were installed along the back wall, providing proper kitchen ventilation via a concealed duct running to the rear wall of the row house. The back wall also featured a Wolf drawer microwave to the right of the range, and paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator to the left. European-style, full-overlay custom cabinets in a soft blue provide a clean and colorful element, finished with Bass knobs, cup pulls and spindle appliance pulls from Emtek. The Ceramic Davenport White Gloss tile from Ann Sacks adds a classic touch, while keeping the space bright. Across from the range, the new island now incorporates the prep area, complete with Blanco Cerana Apron Front Sink and Fairfield Satin Brass faucet from Newport Brass. The Miele dishwasher and double pull-out garbage bin from Rev-A-Shelf simplify clean-up. Countertops throughout the kitchen are Olympian White Danby Fleuri Honed. The flooring – Balsatina Honed from Stone Source – also projects a non-shiny finish, keeping the space from looking too modern. Photos: Allyson Lubow GOLD 52 Kitchen & Bath Design News • August 2019
