Every negative review is real. Yes, they hire subs & put them on a job the next day telling the client its their best sub. This means there is a sub in your home who NYKB barely knows & cannot vouch for. Youll find out at the end. Ask Natalia. If your project costs $100k labor, he doesnt want to pay a sub more than $20k to do the work. Imagine the quality of worker. Yes, they charge 5 times their cost on all material. If your cabinets cost you 75k, then I guarantee you it didnt cost NYKB more than 15k60k profit. Yes, when you make your material selections he will say, Oh, I didnt know you were going to use this tile. I need to support the wall more for this mosaic, or this glass, or this size. He then makes up a number. It has nothing to do with industry rates or how much time & materials it actually consumes. If he wants another $4k he will say the upcharge is $5k, so when you balk at it he knocks it down to $4k. It shouldve been $1500. Yes, he will tell you that youre receiving the best product when its a known contractor grade of modern cabinetry. Ive seen document of cabinets that cost NYKB about $7k, & he charged the client $50k. Gouging at its best.

Oh, you want undercabinet lighting in your kitchen? $5000. Oh, you want to put floor tile on a diagonal? $5000. Oh, you want to go full height tile backsplash behind your range? Thats more than the contract. $2500. Oh, you want to add an outlet? $1500.

Perry is in business only to make grotesque money off you. He is a perpetual and professional liar. Also, when building management has basic requirements for waterproofing/soundproofing, electrical upgrades, or architectural review, he will turn this into a minimum $30k change order. You thought when you signed up it was expensive enough, but I guarantee you hes not done with you until he makes at least another $30k. He triples the cost of permits & building reqs AFTER he has you locked into an astronomical labor contract that you cannot renege. Notice how he releases material pricing to you after the 3 day legal clearance for cancellation.

Clients pay 50% deposit to start a project, but with delays, concocted change orders, and back and forth every client eventually has with Perry the deposit is gone, and hes demanding more money from you when he hasnt even picked up a hammer. Hell find a change order in your paperwork when you dont even have a start date. Imagine when he breaks the walls. Hes just itching to find more $$. He makes up rules as he makes up charges as he goes along.

Perry is not here for referrals or a portfolio. He does not care if you hate him, as long as he was paid. In his mind you love him. Hes delusional. Even as hes threatened with being sued constantly he laughs, because he knows he has a contract and a lawyer ready to make it a most miserable journey for you. Although he did have to give a client back a million dollars once. He tells the story as if to show his empathy for one who changed his mind. The truth of the story is that check was demanded in court.

NYKB has zero design conviction, and live for greed. They are here to make money now, and they do not care how much equity youve taken, they want it all.

Do not work with NYKB as a client. There are plenty of full service renovation firms in the city who stand for a lot more than themselves.

Oh, yes, that was their Project Manager in an NYKB car in NJ who rammed 2 police cars and injured 2 officers running from a routine traffic stop, who also stole $10k from a client. Im just saying.

I found the NYKB staff to be open and patient, providing us with information on all the technical aspects of our bathroom remodeling in an understandable manner. Their attention to detail is precise and each element was tracked to ensure the high design and functional standards NYKB have a reputation for. We had a problem with the way the light switches were fitted and the interior designer caught it straight away and fixed it to ensure the end-product was perfect.

The construction team for NYKB are solid workers who worked long and hard to reach the deadline. During the job, which took a couple of weeks, they left an indescribable mess...but...HAVE NO FEAR!!! By the time they left the house was spanking and the bathroom construction was worth the three week hassle.

My husband and I recently purchased a home that was wonderful, but the kitchen was rather out of date. After a significant amount of researching various contractors, we decided to choose New York Kitchen and Bath (NYKB) and we could not be happier with our decision! We feel so lucky to have found them to remodel our kitchen.

The staff at NYKB were very responsive to all of questions and even provided us with several suggestions on what would look best for our home based on what was popular in current home design. They were extremely knowledgable and walked us through the entire process before starting on the project. Most importantly for us, the price the quoted us on our job was very reasonable in comparison to other estimates we received.

Plus, our kitchen looks great! We wanted something very modern and NYKB delivered just that. I absolutely love cooking and entertaining in my new kitchen. The finished project looks just as good as any advertised on the NYKB website. I would definitely recommend NYKB to anyone looking have to home remodeled, and I already have recommended them to several friends. Thanks NYKB for my beautiful new kitchen.

Run for the hills. Perry (the owner) and his staff will promise the world and deliver deplorable service, sub-standard ethics and a shoddy work product. They violate lien laws and don't protect deposits with escrow or bond--demo, scope changes and shake downs for thousands and thousands. Perry is a crook. Really. Worst experience of my life. And should I mention all the extra costs they hide in fine print which they know you will have to incur. But wait, they don't tell you any of this until you sign on the dotted line. Look up New York Wood Floors or Metropolitan Wood Floors and Perry Hiiman on e-courts. And call the Department of Consumer Affairs. They are VERY familiar with PH. If you go ahead and use them, I can assure you, you'll regret it.

"We recently renovated our two bathrooms and walked away very happy with both service and quality that NYKB provided. I must say that renovations are never easy breezy, requiring your time, patience and flexibility. That's why it was so important to us to be working with the right team. It all started with high quality designer Meirav, who spent 20-30 hours with us working on both design and picking the actual materials. She was always available after our initial few meetings as we came up changes to our plans. It was invaluable to have the designer's perspective to make sure everything fits together, both size wise and stylistically.
Once the project started NYKB assigned a project manager who would visit our apartment almost everyday to ensure the project was done properly. He would then constantly update me on status and any issues that popped up.
NYKB also did a great job managing our building's management ensuring everything was done to satisfy their picky requirements, including dealing with insurances, architects, working within allowed hours, etc.
The project was finished maybe a week later than originally promised, which was very impressive for a project of this size. We are extremely happy with our bathrooms and the experience NYKB provided.
Finally NYKB continued to deliver on their promises including quickly responding to our warranty calls. Perry Hiiman, the owner, has demonstrated that he stands up for his reputation and brand and will do everything in his power to exceed customer's expectations.
Thank you NYKB!!!"

We really couldn't afford to rip out our bathroom and start all over but we had to do something because my wife and I were literally tripping over each other and didn't have enough room for the basics. NYKB worked miracles by redesigning the entire room. We were still able to use most of the fixtures so it didn't cost an arm or a leg but the difference is incredible. New York Kitchen & Bath knew just what to do to make the most of what we had and with their added touches, it feels like a new room.

I can't say enough about Perry and his crews as they managed to not only get the whole job done in time for my guests arrival, but did a great job including working around a hidden surprise in the walls while removing bathroom fixtures. They not only arrived on time, but went the extra mile giving the job a real personal touch. Perry called me on a couple of occasions to check on how things were going and he and Barbara managed to get a plumber here to replace the broken valve within a few hours of them discovering the problem. They cleaned up before they left each time and I really couldn't tell that anyone had been here working at all.
I would definitely use NYKB again and will recommend them to my friends and coworkers.

I want to let new Yorkers know of my experience with NYKB . Overall, my wife and I have had a great journey with the NYKB team and I think it is important to let others know how helpful specific members of the NYKB team have been to us.

When we embarked on our master bathroom renovation last year, we chose NYKB based on the strength of designer Barbara Fiume. While NYKB was not the least expensive option we had, we felt Barbara best understood the aesthetic we were trying to achieve and that NYKB could realize that vision. That said we left neither cost or quality of delivery to chance - I grilled the owner Perry Hiiman personally on price and NYKB itself. Price we were able to negotiate, ultimately my confidence in NYKB's ability to deliver came down to Perry's word. And, as Perry promised, over the course of the project NYKB stood behind every promise Perry made Specifically, Perry had his team redo items that I felt needed re-work (e.g. one of the moldings and some electric). Perry ensured that his vendors redid work that wasn't perfect (like our glass partition), and he even addressed items that we forgot to include (e.g. our bathroom entrance door). In short, I felt like perry treated our bathroom project as he would have his own. In a perfect world, nothing would need re-work, but in the real world it was a comfort to know that Perry had our back.

The NYKB construction crew on my project did very well. The construction team didn't blindly implement exactly what we had originally decided on. After demo when unknown conditions came up the team suggested small changes that would make the renovation even better. NYKB's plumber did the same. For example, he leveraged prior experience with the bathroom drain that we had chosen and suggested a modification that reduced clogging down the line. (and with 2 children this is certainly a great value) He found a way to accommodate the toilet we had chosen. The custom vanity NYKB created is beautiful. Things were very well done, and in the end the collaboration between us and NYKB ensured that we got as close to perfect as we should expect.

This year we came back to NYKB to renovate our entire house'. We have added to our family and are redoing everything except the bathroom NYKB did the first time. Like last year, we had solicited several bids, but in the end, we knew the caliber of NYKB's work and staff. We trusted that we'd get as close to perfect as we could again... just on a much bigger scale this time! So far, so good - Barbara's designs are once again on target and Construction supervisor Steve Babus's leadership has been at times accommodating, and at times firm - which I respect. He knows both the craft and the business of renovation. By knowing when to stick to his guns Steve has proved that he is the guy to run our renovation.

I'm sure we'll be collaborating once again throughout this project, (and I'm sure we'll have ups and downs) but I can't say enough about how much my wife and I appreciate NYKB and what they have done for us thus far. I can be detailed, demanding, and possibly difficult at times but NYKB has really been a great partner on this most intimate of projects? after all, we are trusting NYKB with the place we call home.

(and with 2 children this is certainly a great value) He found a way to accommodate the toilet we had chosen. The custom vanity NYKB created is beautiful. Things were very well done, and in the end the collaboration between us and NYKB ensured that we got as close to perfect as we should expect.

This year we came back to NYKB to renovate our entire house'. We have added to our family and are redoing everything except the bathroom NYKB did the first time. Like last year, we had solicited several bids, but in the end, we knew the caliber of NYKB's work and staff. We trusted that we'd get as close to perfect as we could again... just on a much bigger scale this time! So far, so good - Barbara's designs are once again on target and Construction supervisor Steve Babus's leadership has been at times accommodating, and at times firm - which I respect. He knows both the craft and the business of renovation. By knowing when to stick to his guns Steve has proved that he is the guy to run our renovation.

I'm sure we'll be collaborating once again throughout this project, (and I'm sure we'll have ups and downs) but I can't say enough about how much my wife and I appreciate NYKB and what they have done for us thus far. I can be detailed, demanding, and possibly difficult at times but NYKB has really been a great partner on this most intimate of projects? after all, we are trusting NYKB with the place we call home.

I was looking for granite counter-tops for my kitchen, but I had a dilemma... I didn't want the cheap kind, but also didn't want to spend a lot of money. I looked everywhere and I always found the same cheap kind or the extra expensive one...Then I went to NYKB and my problem was solved...amazing price and EXCELLENT quality......The best...

NYKB designed and renovated both my Kitchen and my Master Bathroom.

My wife and I are thrilled with the results.

From beginning to end NYKB team were available to assist us in every aspect of the process.

We were thrilled to have a full service firm take all the guess work out of our project.

They made sure that all items fit and gave us many options along the way to meet with our budget.

Our backsplash continues to be the jewel of our kitchen, family and friends always comment on it as soon as the walk in the room.l

During the process our building required us to upgrade our electric and plumbing and the team was on the job ready to go and we knew the pricing ahead of time since it was on the back of our contract just in case it was needed.

We are extremely grateful to NYKB for providing us with a look and function that we love!

We highly recommend NYKB and their team to anyone looking to renovate any part of their home.

They really delivered and went above and beyond what we expected.

I had quotes from a couple of other places and NYKB was a little more expensive but the plumbers, electricians and designer offered with my contract really helped me make the decision to hire them. For me, that slightly higher expense was worth it since I had those choices and the work was done by one contractor rather than having to keep track of multiple jobs. NYKBs Designer, Barbara Fiume, handled my issues in a professional and courteous manner. Its not easy to find a company that really understands customer service, so working out the kinks with Barbara and Perry Hiiman, the owner, went well because they actually get it!
Barbara is the person who schedules the installations and she worked with me to coordinate the time I would have to take off of work including the fact that I was going to have a house full of overnight guests for a wedding five weeks after the intended start date. Of course I wanted it done BEFORE my guests arrived, but was willing to wait until after that weekend because the time frame seemed a little short and I wanted to have a fully functioning bathroom and kitchen while they were here. Barbara worked it out to have everything but the tile backsplash in the kitchen done in time for my guests arrival. While I was a little concerned about them actually making that time frame, I told her to go for it and kept my fingers crossed. She said she had faith in her crews and I took her word for it.

I cant say enough about Perry and his crews as they managed to not only get the whole job done in time for my guests arrival, but did a great job including working around a hidden surprise in the walls while removing bathroom fixtures. They not only arrived on time, but went the extra mile giving the job a real personal touch. Perry called me on a couple of occasions to check on how things were going and he and Barbera managed to get a plumber here to replace the broken valve within a few hours of them discovering the problem. They cleaned up before they left each time and I really couldnt tell that anyone had been here working at all.
I would definitely use NYKB again and will recommend them to my friends and coworkers.

I haven't used NYKB yet, but their showroom is awesome. So much hate for them though...damn. Sorry you guys had a bad experience. The people I spoke with so far at the store seem to know their stuff. I'll say I've been warned, but I think anyone who doesn't do their research and ask the right questions and get the right contracts in place before remodeling should be warned.

We recently contracted NYKB to renovate our 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath coop in New York City. This was a complete gut renovation, including wall repair, new hardwood flooring, all new kitchen and both bathrooms. NYKB handled everything for us, from initial design work all the way through completion of the project. Very importantly, they worked well with our coop and managing company to make sure all work was done properly and received all appropriate approvals. The results were fantastic, and everyone that comes to our new apartment cannot stop complimenting us on the renovation. In terms of service, NYKB was very responsive to our needs regarding follow up work and timelines. This was a very big project, and NYKB met every challenge. Most importantly, the final product speaks for itself. The quality of work was outstanding.

They worked quickly, thoroughly and efficiently. They were more than willing to work late to stay on schedule. They were always courteous and it was easy to communicate with them in the sense that they listened to my questions and suggestions, and promptly came up with ideas and solutions
