Highlight a skyline view with an open, modern kitchen in north Jersey

FORT LEE, N.J. - March 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Edgewater, New Jersey, apartment looks out on the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty, and George Washington Bridge. The couple and their dog have lived in the two-bedroom, two-bath condo for ten years and been slowly renovating room by room. When it came time to reimagine their kitchen, they knew an open concept was the only way to go. "We entertain so much and wanted a nice flow for people to congregate and socialize. We wanted clean lines, plus no obstructions or walls to block the view," the owner shared. The soon-to-be renovators posted their project to Sweeten and were matched with a Berceli NJ. With one partial wall separating the living area and kitchen, the owner had her heart set on creating a seamless, or wall-less, space. Upon inspection, the couple learned the entire wall couldn't fully come down because it was load-bearing. Instead, their contractor left a little under three feet of the wall remaining—a perfect spot for the refrigerator. In place of the knocked-down wall came a marble waterfall island with a deep black base and white veins. The rest of the kitchen's palette picks up from the marble, juxtaposing the two colors. Glossy black drawers are one side of the island, while all white upper and lower cabinetry, plus a white quartz counter-top make up the rest of the cook space. Since the whole concept revolved around clean lines, the renovators chose sleek, linear hardware for their cabinets and installed the microwave drawer underneath the counter to keep the surface clear. Not one detail was spared, from the under-cabinet lighting to the textured back splash.​ "We walk in and with all the extra light, open air, clean lines, and high gloss finishes, and I feel as though I'm in a Soho penthouse and there's a concierge downstairs that will gladly bring us a plate charcuterie for our enormous new counter.," she said."We feel like we are out when we stay in. It is just the best."  Bonus: Owners tip for future renovators? "Sign contracts that give you a firm start date, end date, and budget they will commit to. Our contractors were absolutely exceptional in each of these areas. A contract that you can all live with and by is essential." Style finds: Flooring and backsplash: Porcelanosa. Bright white quartz countertops and Eternal Marquina island: Silestone. Sink and faucet: Kohler. Refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher: Samsung. Lighting: Lutron. Barstools: Wayfair. Your family spends considerable time in your kitchen and you want to make the most of that time together.
