Renovation Companies in Brooklyn

Living amongst the hustle and bustle of New York City is a practice in patience, stamina, and invaluable skill of finding the closest, cleanest publicly-accessible bathrooms. With everything the city has to offer, your home should be your safe haven, but even people who have never lived in the city know the stereotype is true: New York apartments are rarely designed for luxury, let alone practical living. If you are living in an outdated, awkward Brooklyn apartment, or have the itch to renovate a townhouse that might have started as someone else’s dream, read on for some of the best renovation companies and architecture design-build firms in Brooklyn and Manhattan. 

In this article we will cover:

Meld NYC Architecture Design & Build

For luxury apartment renovations in Brooklyn, the rest of the five boroughs, and upstate New York, Meld NYC would love to work with you. We specialize in creating site-specific architectural builds and high-end renovations, incorporating extraordinary aspects of a building’s or neighborhood’s history into each design we create. Within this framework, we maintain high levels of sustainability in both our processes and our materials, while elevating every apartment (no matter how small the space) to a level of subtle opulence. We are a full-service design and build firm, which means the renovation process will be as elegant as you are. You will never have to nudge the project manager or play the mediator between a designer and a contractor who can’t seem to see eye-to-eye, because our goal is for your high-end renovation to be a seamless process. We want your luxury apartment renovation to be an enviable reflection of your refined taste and original style from start to finish.

Block Renovation

More of a renovation match-making service than a standard renovation firm, we appreciate the new service model Block Renovation offers. Working with Block starts with a free consultation with a Renovation Consultant. From there, they coordinate to obtain quotes for you from up to three contractors who meet your project needs, style, and budget–whether you are a whimsical aspiring DIY-er or you want the top-of-the-line luxury furnishings. Enrolling with Block gives you the ability to communicate with and pay the contractors directly through the Block service, which activates some peace-of-mind protections, like their quality assurance warranty and escalation support. If you need additional project management or support in your vision, Block offers add-on design services. Because Block partners with licensed, trusted, local companies, you can be sure to get matched with the right team to help with your apartment renovations in Brooklyn and beyond. Block is like a dating site for home renovations, but without the amusing stories from terrible first dates!

Star Renovations

Making waves with their Brooklyn and Manhattan clients, Star Renovations has been voted into the Best of Houzz renovation design category for three years running. Their Sunset Park location offers a convenient location for clients in Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, and Lower Manhattan; and they promise white-glove design and construction concierge services even beyond that radius. Project budgets tend to start around $75K with Star Renovations, and we adore the impact of this opulent Williamsburg bathroom renovation they completed. Customers also seem to love the online project platform used by the team, which streamlines the process and ensures continuity of communication from end-to-end.

DCON Renovations

The values that drive DCON Renovations in their work are transparency, dedication, and quality. Whether this will be your first renovation or your tenth, you can be sure that DCON Renovations will provide a fantastic service with clear and detailed proposals, quality craftsmanship, and a dedication to your vision. The leadership at DCON was born and raised in New York City, which provides insider knowledge for city-specific nuances, like obtaining the correct permitting for historic brownstone renovations, alleviating potential stress to close neighbors during an interior renovation to a townhome, or optimizing space for an apartment with a small footprint.

Crafted Interiors

Focused on that sleek SoHo aesthetic, Crafted Interiors delivers clean lines and functional storage to manage your daily clutter and maintain serene minimalism within the chaos of New York City. This Brooklyn apartment renovation in Long Island City perfectly encapsulates their skills: at only 850 square feet, the team at Crafted Interiors has managed to design and build a space that feels expansive and personalized to the owner and their two dogs. In this and other projects, we love how Crafted Interiors takes the time to understand the nuances of their clients’ lives and then creates a space that fits them, rather than forcing them to fit into an idealistic space.

Essential Home Remodel

Taking the meaning of dedication to the next level, Essential Remodel is another client favorite on Houzz, with 29 five-star reviews. For this Park Slope kitchen and bathroom renovation, Essential navigated an impractically small Brooklyn elevator by hand- carrying every piece of oversized slab and countertop up six flights of stairs. The team had to have been certainly exhausted by the end of it, but the exquisite results were worth the effort. We deeply appreciate this level of commitment, because anyone who has renovated an apartment, townhome, or brownstone in the five boroughs knows that the quirks and challenges of the built environment of NYC don’t always align with the luxury dreams of home renovation clients. It matters to have a design-build team who will get resourceful and creative to execute the vision–no matter what!

Brooklyn Apartment Renovation

At MeldNYC, we feel lucky to live and work within such an outstanding creative community of other design-build apartment renovation firms. Although we stand by the quality of our own work (always a good sign!), we also believe that every luxury renovation idea has the ideal project partener to help execute it, and we want to help you find the right company for your hand-crafted home. Whether you choose us or one of our peers, we know that supporting the work of other firms also helps us to uphold levels of excellence that are only available when we celebrate and learn from each other’s work.

Interior of a luxury apartment renovation in NYC

Our collaborative working relationship with other architectural firms in the city allowed us to design and complete this gut renovation for a loft in Williamsburg, featured in Architectural Digest magazine in 2021. Our client for that project is the founder of fragrance brand Abbott, and we knew that his impeccable taste in perfume formulations would translate into an exquisite home vision that we were grateful to be able to accomplish.
