Learn How a Home Remodel Adds Value, Functionality, and Style

The 2020 pandemic forced homeowners to use their homes in new ways: as a functional office, a school, and as a place to unwind after work. A design + build renovation can address all your family’s multiple needs. Imagine reinventing the Master Bedroom to include the addition of a private office for deep focus just steps away. Then unwind in your home spa by stepping into your Master Bathroom that’s been remodeled with a dry sauna and steam shower. The pandemic also shone a spotlight on the importance of multi-generational families, making stylish in-law suite additions more in demand than ever.

Design-build firm Gridley Company, based in the San Jose area, specializes in residential remodeling. We help your home achieve new heights of functionality, seamlessly integrating new additions into your existing structure, while significantly adding to your home’s market value.

Project: San Jose Home Spa Retreat

Design Style: Contemporary

It’s been a stressful year, and according to the 2020 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, 2 in 5 homeowners (41%) are turning to their refreshed master bathrooms for rest and relaxation. After adding a private office to the Master Bedroom, guaranteeing a pleasant and productive work-day, we transformed the Master Bath into a spa-like retreat. We integrated a steam shower, dry sauna and all the luxuries of a home spa including a rain head in the shower, wall mount toilet with washlet and robern lit mirrors, heated tile floors throughout (even in the shower) and a heated towel bar create a space for a spa-like retreat and relaxation.  

Design + build addresses functionality as well as aesthetics. A dual-swing shower door with a curbless entrance allows for better future proofing and aging in place. A floating vanity and wall mount toilet makes it easier for your Roomba to get around and clean the floors.  

We continued the wood-looking tile floor into the shower, along with a non-slip grip texture. The neutral wood tones and creamy whites with soft green accents create a relaxing, restorative vibe for your home spa day.

Design Style: Contemporary

Move over, mother-in-law units. Today’s Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) deliver a far more elegant solution to bringing multi-generations on the same property. Separate, second small dwellings create a beautiful option for your parents to move into and gracefully age in place while still affording your family privacy.  

We created a new design + build ADU with walk-in showers and wide 36” wide interior doors so it adds significant future market value to the home along with convenience for the current occupants. You walk into a gorgeous entry with added architectural interest with its geometric design and generous natural light. A low slope standing seam metal roof with transom windows makes this a timeless investment.
