Storage-Savvy Apartment Renovation in NYC


An unremarkable, 1,400-square-foot apartment on New York's Upper East Side received a complete overhaul from Sweeten, a service that pairs users in need of a renovation with architects, interior designers, and contractors. The update, by Glickman Schlesinger Architects, introduced a clean, modern aesthetic to the formerly haphazard space.

The homeowners, avid cooks, worked with a design duo and a contractor found on the site.
The kitchen combines varying storage types, from white lacquered cabinets and glass-fronted ones to a floating shelf...

An updated bathroom features a mix of tiles: Carrara marble tiles on the floor, green subway tiles from Heath Ceramics...
The navy floor tiles in another bathroom are from Mosaic House.
