Interior Remodeling in Sarasota

Gilbert Design Build offers a wealth of interior home remodeling options in addition to our kitchen and bathroom renovations. The possibilities are virtually endless, as we have the ability to move walls and enlarge a room, or even change the layout of your entire home. Whether you are looking to remodel an existing space or do a complete overhaul of a room to repurpose it for other needs, our team has the unmatched design expertise and skilled craftsmanship to make any home remodeling dream a reality.  Below are a few types of popular interior home renovations: 

Home Theatre and Media Rooms

Whether you’re sharing popcorn with the family and giving your full attention to a feature-length film, entertaining guests with the game on in the background, or enjoying some “me time” with a glass of wine while binge-watching the latest streaming series, your TV room is likely a place you equate with comfort and entertainment. So, it’s no surprise that home theaters and media rooms are fast becoming such a popular home renovation.

A media room is a multipurpose space. While it is the room that features your flat screen and any other audio/visual equipment, it also doubles as a stylish living room or family room. This is the remodel you’ll want to choose if you’re looking for a more practical and social solution – it’s an inviting living space where you can do more than just sit in the dark watching movies. From custom entertainment walls to built-in fireplaces, our media rooms integrate the latest trends.

A home theater is the solution for those looking for a more immersive viewing experience. If you want a room dedicated to the screen, where family and friends can enjoy a night-at-the-movies experience in the comfort of your own home, then this is the choice for you. A home theater typically features high-end audio/visual technology and comfy theater-like seating. Many homeowners think that a home theater would be outside of their budget, but in reality, home theaters range from the most complex, luxury setups to far more modest and cost-effective arrangements.

Utility and Laundry Rooms 

Gone are the days when laundry was a mere afterthought in home construction. In most new or renovated homes, you won’t find a washer and dryer tucked away in the garage or a tiny closet space – rather, there will be a dedicated laundry room or, when space allows, an even larger utility room that accommodates additional needs. 

At Gilbert Design Build, our goal is to make your new space work for you. Consider all the tasks you’d like to be able to accomplish in your new laundry room. Some popular laundry room features include:

  • A deep sink or utility sink for hand-washing delicate clothing items
  • An island or other area for fresh-out-of-the-dryer folding to minimize wrinkling
  • Accordion-style drying racks for air drying
  • A wall-mounted ironing board
  • Cabinetry and storage solutions for organizing everything you need, from detergent to fabric softener sheets

Creative Laundry Room Ideas

A larger utility room can be used for far more than just laundry – talk to your design team about any tasks you’d like to have space for. For instance, your utility room might include a:

  • Sewing nook
  • Crafting counter
  • Exercise space
  • Dog-washing station
  • Storage area for household cleaning supplies

Custom Closets

Maximize closet space and simplify your daily living. Unlike companies that might use cookie-cutter, modular solutions, we design custom closet solutions to meet the unique needs and preferences of each of our clients. Whether you’re looking to break beyond the confines of your existing reach-in closet with a new walk-in space, or transform an entire room into your own stylish, boutique-style closet, no project is too big for our expert team. When you work with us, you’ll enjoy the hassle-free experience of one-stop shopping, as all elements of the project – from design and product selection to the completion of construction – will be handled by a single entity. With designers and builders working together on the same team, the entire process will be streamlined, communication will be simplified, and the results will be of the highest quality.

Not exactly sure what to include in your custom closet? Our in-house designers will take the time to get to know your needs and preferences, as well as explain all of the options available to you. Some things you might want to talk about with your designer include:

  • LED lighting
  • Shelving and storage
  • An island
  • Seating
  • A built-in vanity
  • Shoe storage
  • Accessories

Accessories typically included in custom closets include valet rods, jewelry storage, hooks, pull-out racks, tilt-out hampers, and more. Your design team will help you make the best possible use of your space, ensuring everything is strategically organized for easy access to frequently used items and to simplify your daily routine.

Home Offices 

With today’s rapid advancements in technology, more and more companies are offering opportunities
for their employees to work remotely, especially as heavily populated cities see increasing traffic and transportation challenges. What’s more, the number of freelancers and home-based business entrepreneurs are continually on the rise. These are just some of the many reasons that so many people opt to remodel their residence with a custom home office.

Gilbert Design Build is a design/build firm that performs interior remodeling services for homeowners throughout the Sarasota and Bradenton areas. As a full-service firm, we provide the convenience and comforts of one-stop shopping, with all elements of design and construction handled by a single entity.

Whether your home office remodel requires a whole new room addition, or you’re repurposing an existing room or unused space, our team can execute a custom creation that best suits your needs. Our experienced designers will take the time to fully understand your goals, as well as the unique day-to-day requirements that your work entails, to ensure your home office provides the ultimate in productivity and comfort while suiting your preferences for style.

Our designers will consider all the essential details for your perfect workspace, including:

  • Lighting
  • Work area/desk seating
  • Technology accommodations

In addition to fulfilling your own needs for a home-based workspace, adding an office to your home has other benefits. Any room addition that increases your home’s livable square footage is going to add to the overall value of your property. But the same can be true when you’re taking advantage of unused space or repurposing an existing room. Because of the growing need for home offices, studies have shown that many home buyers are willing to pay extra for homes with these rooms.





Main Living & Chef Kitchen

Designer ceiling beams & wood-like tile floors transformed this living space from top to bottom. Concrete to level out the living space with the kitchen allowed the newly designed two-toned cabinets seamlessly feel united.

The project manager, Bob, kept things going smoothly with the arrivals of demolition guys, electricians, plumbers, tilers, and carpenters. The carpenter, Adam, was great.
