Steal This Look: A Semi-Custom Kitchen in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park

August 7, 2018

In the renovation of an 800-square-foot apartment in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood, design firm Space Exploration overhauled the dated kitchen with an upgraded Ikea cabinet system, marble countertops, brass hardware, and a custom-built, oiled-oak kitchen booth. Here is a list of sources, from white paint to drawer pulls, to replicate the modern, semi-custom look.
