San Mateo Bathroom Remodeling

Bathroom Remodeling in San Mateo

Bathrooms are one of the smallest rooms in a home, but remodeling them has never been more popular. In fact, 81 percent of homeowners who do renovation projects choose to remodel their bathrooms.

This might have something to do with the fact that remodeling a bathroom is a smaller project that has many benefits, both immediately and in the long-run. 

“Small-scale renovations are slowly becoming just as popular as large-scale projects, as seen with bathroom remodeling becoming more common than kitchens,” says Joanne Theunissen, the 2018 National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Remodelers Chair. 

So if you find yourself cluttered in your bathroom — or desiring features you wish you had — it might be time to upgrade your space. The good news is that bathroom remodeling in San Mateo is easy as long as Gilmans Kitchens and Baths is on the job. 

With Gilmans’ remodeling process, you’ll be surprised to learn how easy a renovation can be.

One of the best parts about working with Gilmans is the ability to work with a qualified Designer. Working with a qualified Designer ensures that the process is well thought out, leading to a meaningful and successful project. 

Design Coordination

In addition to working with a Designer, your project will be assigned a Design Coordinator to handle other design aspects of your project, such as, tile, flooring, paint, electrical, and more.

Benefits of Working With A Design Coordinator

Having a designer specific to your project will allow you key features only offered by the Gilmans Design Build team, such as:

  • All of Gilmans Design Coordinators are actual designers who continue to take courses and stay up-to-date on all the trends in bathroom remodeling.
  • The Design Coordinator puts together Auto-Cad drawings, which allow you to see complete dimensions of all the cabinets, flooring, and tile — so you can be sure everything is done with precision.
  • Design Coordinators also use Auto-Cad drawings to put together lighting and electrical plans.

Design Build

The Design Build team has an in-house crew of skilled laborers, craftsmen, and carpenters. By supplying our own certified and experienced crew, we’re able to ensure the best quality when it comes to craftsmanship. 

Already Have A Contractor?

At Gilmans, we’re all about flexibility and satisfying your needs, which is why we also offer an Install-Only option. 

If you already have a contractor, Gilmans can still help by handling the installation of the cabinets only (since we know them best). Additionally, you can bring your contractor’s plans to one of our designers so we can work side by side. 

San Mateo Bathroom Remodel Cost Factors

When most people hear the word “remodel” or “renovation,” it’s easy to see nothing but dollar signs. Remodels can get expensive — but whether you need a semi-or a full-custom design, Gilmans has price points to fit every budget.

If you’re unsure of what to expect during your project, then you can get a rough idea with the Gilmans budget calculator. The cost entirely depends on how much of a remodel you’re looking for, such as updating or adding a new bathroom. 

Updating An Existing Bathroom

The cost of updating an existing bathroom will vary depending on how much you want to update. Once can choose a Refresh option where the layout stays the same and the toilet, vanity and paint can be simply swapped out for a fresh new look. A more in depth remodel would require major plumbing, walls removed and tubs converted to showers, etc. 

 Here’s what you can expect based on the size and scope of work of your project:

  • Basic remodels include replacing vanities, countertops,toilets, fixtures and painting the walls, keeping the existing layout of the space.
  • Mid – to large scale remodels include removing walls, changing the layout of the space, converting tubs to showers,  fixtures, toilets, vanities, plumbing, electrical, and windows, etc.

Adding A New Bathroom

It’s also common to add bathrooms to growing homes and households. Many people opt for this since typical homebuyers look for homes with at least two full baths. 

However, adding a new bathroom is a complex project that requires professionals like designers and contractors. The good news is that adding a bathroom will most definitely raise your home’s value — and can also be an easy process when working with Gilmans.
