Avery Kinghorn – San Mateo Director of Design Operations
Avery is an integral part of the Design Build department in San Mateo at Gilmans Kitchens and Baths. As the Design and Coordination Manager, Avery focuses on the quality of the designs implemented and the actual execution of each design build project.
As a young child, Avery spent many weekends with her father and brother engaging in the family hobby of remodeling and renovation. In lieu of playing games or with toys, Avery was thrilled to be pulling out old carpet, ripping sheet rock off of walls and pointing out where new walls should be built. Little did she know that her childhood hobby would turn into a full-fledged passion.
Avery started off in the industry as an Interior Design Assistant and then moved into a full-time Interior Design position before joining the Gilmans Kitchens and Baths Design Build team and established the department’s processes and procedures. In the last 5 years, Avery has managed multiple Design Build projects throughout the Bay Area and continues to contribute her expertise to every job.
Avery believes that going the Design + Build route is always the best and most rewarding option for both clients and designers alike because both the designer and contractor are part of the same team. In her experience, the commitment to the same exact goal and design concept always result in a functional and satisfying end result for her clients.
Living by her family’s philosophy of “leaving something better than when you found it”, Avery feels that there is never any task that is too big for her to tackle. She gets the most satisfaction out of her role in Design Build from knowing that she has been part of a team that is able to design spaces and see them come to fruition.
