A Corner Office

How do you turn one long open space into a mufti-divided room? Stephen's crew worked hard to turn this loft space into a separately defined office space for work as seen on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Apartment of the Century

Not many NYC apartments have 20 foot ceilings, so the design took advantage of the height and beaux arts details in the living room of this 100-year old apartment. The existing columns were all refinished, and the walls were treated with Venetian plaster, creating a look that's both classic and modern. Motorized shades were installed, and on the balcony, the original railing was replaced with star fire glass. This has the visual effect of opening the space even more, and allowing the natural light to flow into the foyer and hallway featured on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Sculpted Privacy Door

A sliding panel decorated with art is the perfect divider into the master bedroom. The feature element seals off from the kitchen for privacy featured on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.

Entertainment Room

The perfect change of pace. As seen on on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, this contemporary room maintains high end while making your guests feel like they can still get comfortable. One seat chairs and a couch are the perfect way to gather around the TV.

Carpeted Seating Area

DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor, hosted by "Contractor to the Stars" Stephen Fanuka, put an interesting twist to this upstairs hallway seating area. He combined a tufted alcove seat with carpeted walls in the same tone of blue. Storage was provided underneath the seating area.

A Livable Living Room

An engaging living space with a big screen TV and couch, a timeless fireplace mantle and table for games, it's perfect for family and friend fun on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor. Stephen Fanuka had a unique challenge in building the custom cabinet under the stairs in the living room. The goal was to maximize the use of space in the apartment, and not an inch is wasted. The cabinet is crafted from walnut, and integrates a wine rack, a desk and workspace, bookshelves, and hidden storage areas. The living room fireplace was also replaced, and fitted with a custom stone mantle.

A Kitchen with Storage

In the space that used to be the master bath and home office, a country-style kitchen with cabinetry that takes advantage of the 15-foot ceilings was created on DIY Network's Million Dollar Contractor.
