Kitchen Design by In-Site Interior designers


Organized and Ready for Guests

Designing a new, fully functional and organized kitchen is key when renovating. It’s the right time to assess priorities of how your kitchen should work for you: how to make prep easier, top notch storage including small appliances. Not only should it be perfect for the cooking aspect, we also expect our kitchens to dual for entertaining. With open layouts more common for contemporary interior design aesthetic or a necessity for multi-functional spaces in tight quarters, having seating to suit your needs is key too!

This upscale, Long Island kitchen featured, was designed for a homeowner looking for clean lines, everything to have a place, and amble space to entertain. The built-in cabinetry allows for the oversized side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, wine cooler and trash receptacles to all be built into the cabinetry for a seamless look. The self pulls for the hardware give it the perfect modern touch. The cabinetry even includes a paper garage to have a place to put the mail that you never know what to do with! The two-level island provides additional storage and prep space, as well as seating for 4, perfect for appetizers and pre-dinner cocktails, girls nights or casual dining.

By eliminating small appliances on the counter and selecting sleek contemporary finishes and fixtures, this home renovation is the perfect example of warm, inviting and fully functional kitchen space.

Maximizing Space in Style

With many people acquiring new jobs that are permanently Work From Home (WFH), maybe working a hybrid model, or creating new business start-ups, it shows that our home office spaces are here to stay. Sometimes the challenge is creating space to do it in, particularly for apartment renters with small spaces, and other times it is finding your style.

EQ3 features the contemporary bookcase integrated with a desk, shown above. Their NYC showroom has wonderful multi-functional pieces with an array of arrangements to choose from. We love the industrial vibe and minimal lines for an easy transformation of a media room or bedroom.

We as designers, also love a fun design elements in a home office tp make it personalized. It can be a great reason to have a wall painted in a colorful accent color or add a lively patterned wallcovering (perfect for impressing clients or your boss on zoom conference calls). This bold black and white patterned wallcovering by Koroseal, above, is a really fun example of adding a wow factor to a space regardless of size. Add certificates or a framed artwork to complete the office accent wall to really start impressing your team.
