When New York City’s favorite local news outlet, NY1 News, wanted to do a piece on today’s trends in kitchen and bathroom remodeling they called NYKB – and we opened our showrooms for a double feature in today’s latest looks. The stories aired on Feb. 12th & 13th and can visitors can go to NY1’s website or an NYKB showroom to view more video.
Reporter Shazia Khan interviewed a host of NYKB designers for the story. More on kitchens: “Back then you used to just use island for prep area, these days you are actually putting appliances in your island. You can put a cook top, you can put an oven, a wine cooler,” says Mairav Gargano of New York Kitchen and Bath.
Hood design has also reached new heights over the past few years. You now have the option to downsize or even hide your hood.
“For clients who want an integrated hood, this is a great feature,” says New York Kitchen and Bath interior designer Ali Swidler, demonstrating a hood that slides out from a glass panel. “It covers the cooking surface and you can’t really see it. It’s hidden in the cabinet.”
This is from NY1’s bathroom segment: “The new trend in the toilet bowls is the tank being hidden in the wall – it’s like the tankless look,” says New York Kitchen and Bath interior designer Steve Babus. “So that the toilet looks more like a furniture piece and it’s really trendy in these open floor plans of bathrooms. The concept here is that the button for the flusher is mounted basically on a tile, but in this case you know we are showing the internal view of it and you would just see the bowl itself separate, so it’s like a free-standing piece.”
Special thanks to NY1’s Shazia Khan, whose professionalism and kindness put the whole showroom at ease.
