Toni Sabatino loves working in an industry that positively impacts how people live and has been involved in interior design specializing in kitchen and bath for quite some time. Working with a kitchen cabinet manufacturer and then a distributor in house, the designer amassed a portfolio of over 1,000 kitchens – from floorplans and product specifications to delivery and installation – before starting her own Long Island, NY-based firm Toni Sabatino Style.
An award-winning kitchen designer, Sabatino has designed residential and commercial projects on Long Island as well as in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and beyond New York’s borders to resort destinations including Vermont, Palm Beach and Las Vegas. Her style is a mix of high and low design elements, with a focus on distinctive details, large scale, rich colors and sophisticated patterns.
Sabatino’s expertise goes beyond the kitchen and bath, working to create whole homes with a focus on lifestyle. Creating safe, accessible spaces for everyone regardless of physical, cognitive, developmental or mobile levels of functioning is a philosophy of the Living In Place Institute that she loves to employ to create a user experience to match the aesthetic. She has earned a CLIPP certification as a Certified Living in Place Professional. Sabatino is also a member the Living In Place Institute’s Advisory Panel.
A recipient of several Best of Houzz Awards and an Interior Design Society Designer of the Year Award for Kitchens, Sabatino has extended her reach as a designer, collaborating with Baden Haus Spa to create The Retro Collection by Toni Sabatino Style, a line of Italian-crafted bath furniture.
As president of the Manhattan Chapter of NKBA for 2018-2019, the designer is displaying her skills as an industry leader. Sabatino is also an active member of the Interior Design Society and the Sustainable Furnishings Council. She is proud to be one of the Kitchen & Bath Design News 2019 Top 50 Innovators and a member of the Modenus Design Hounds Top 100 Influencers list, and continues to be a featured speaker at events such as KBIS NextStage, WNWN and Design Chicago.
