The Full Monty – Remodeling the Manhattan Highlands

Livingroom 2

Eclectic Builders has done their fair share of remodeling in Manhattan, what makes this apartment so different?

Eclectic Builders has been around for a while. They have worked on full-scale carpentry projects to modest remodeling jobs. Due to their exceptional skills and craftsmanship, the word has spread. They’ve now moved on to taking bigger and more involved projects – including this remodel.

Located in Manhattan’s buzzing and lively neighborhood of Chelsea, this full-scale remodeling encompassed every room in the what was originally a very small and cramped apartment.

The living room design and kitchen were modified to allow more light to come in from every angle.

The bedroom floors, walls and light fixtures were updated and modernized. Bathrooms were completely gutted and given a new contemporary feel – from minimalist bathroom fixtures to the custom-fitted shower. Even the hall received the attention it is not normally afforded in the form of custom floor coverings.

However, the crown jewel of this project rests on the kitchen – which included a glass door that needed to be fitted and modified to allow for the most light.

Each stage of the remodel was engineered to allow for the most light, the most efficient use of space and to create the illusion of more space.

Eclectic Builders achieved this goal while also working closely with the client, designers and other professionals necessary to the success of this project.

Please review all of Eclectic Builders projects to see their expert use of light and space.

A Banquette Worth Remembering

As the benchmark of kitchen furniture and hard to fit spaces, banquettes are the perfect addition to any dining area. The most popular styles to teach you how a banquette can add extra seating space, storage, and style to your space.

Bench seating need not be reserved for breakfast nooks. Banquettes are also a great solution for small dining rooms. Here, the custom-built banquette seating sits in a modern LED-lit sitting room with contemporary upholstering and a black lacquer table.

Further, in downtown Manhattan at the ever popular Sushi Samba, one of Eclectic Builder’s general contracting projects, we were responsible for remodeling this sleek, contemporary dining room replete with banquette seating – the perfect setting with efficient use of space in the busy NYC restaurant scene.

Specialty Doors


There are hundreds of different types of door and material combinations, no matter whether standard or custom doors are required. Choosing the right doors for your home can be a time consuming process if you don’t know what your options and needs are. It’s important to get the choice of doors right.

From basic hinged doors to bi-fold doors, French doors, sliding doors, stable doors, trapdoors and more – learn about the many different types of doors.

Just as there are many different doors to suit various purposes, there are many different types of door hinges to accompany them. The average house usually has several different kinds.

The similarities may be many and the differences small, but having the right hinge for the right door is quite important. Here’s a few of the more common varieties:

Barrel hinge: Barrel hinges are the most common type of hinge on the market – this is the usual hinge type people think of when they hear the word. Barrel hinges consist of two halves that come together to form a thin cylinder or barrel, into which a pin is inserted. One half is screwed into the door and the other half into the door jamb, thus fixing the door in place. The hinge then rotates on the pin when the door is opened and closed.

Most standard doors will feature two or three of these hinges, which are easily replaced. These hinges normally get their roughest treatment when kids hang off doorknobs…

Pivot hinge: This is a simple bar protruding out from the top and bottom of the door, on which the door pivots to open and close. These are common in showers where another type of hinge may be impractical due to residue build up and difficulty of maintenance.

Concealed hinge: These hinges are hidden inside the door and may or may not have a self-closing and/or soft closing mechanism installed. These are usually found on furniture as opposed to room or exterior doors.

Continuous or piano hinge: On a continuous hinge, the hinge joint runs the entire length of the door, just like the hinge on a piano lid.

Fifth Avenue on the Strip

Crown molding combined with LED strip lights make this Fifth Avenue, Museum Mile home a masterpiece

Track lighting has undergone many changes in recent years. In fact, LED strip lighting, used combination with crown moldings, was used to create this light cove.

While the trend in track lighting is actually disappearing and not very much in vogue these days, LED strip lights, ribbons or tapes are one of the most popular LED products available on the market. LED’s do not require standard bulb shapes to work efficiently; however, this shape allows LED’s to replace bulbs in typical residential lamps.

LED stands for “light emitting diode”. A diode is an electrical component with two terminals which conduct the electricity only in one direction and the light emitted is not only more cost efficient, it is also very versatile in its applications.

Depending on your purposes, the following features may help you decide what to apply.

Of all the determining factors, the most important is probably the type and size of the LED, both of which determine its brightness or performance. How the performance of different LED technologies (low power, SMD power and high power) ranges, as well as the size of the diodes. Obviously, the more recent the technology of the LED is, and the bigger its size is, the brighter it will be.

In this elegantly appointed Fifth Avenue apartment, the trend has certainly been toward smaller fixtures, which are much less noticeable in the space. while the LED strip light trend is excellent for its flexibility and can provide ambient, task, or accent lighting.

The entire home has been remodeled, not only with specialized lighting, but with the installation of custom wall coverings, parquet floors, curved interior walls, and specialized doors and fittings.

In this Fifth Avenue home in Manhattan, LED strip lighting is used effectively. Situated in the famous Museum Mile neighborhood of central Manhattan, the apartment looks over Central Park. Stately accents to a well-appointed apartment.

Built-in shelving and customized lighting add accent detail, as well as wall sconces, which were used to create a visual glow, even in the dead of winter. In this way, the lighting is used for not only functional and dramatic effect with custom fixtures and fittings.
Also on display are classic attributes of a modern apartment softly lit by ambient lighting.

Re-designed walls covering NYC Fifth Avenue apartment plus interior wall coverings and lighting details make this project a place to remember!
