I highly recommend Gilmans in San Mateo. We did a full kitchen remodel using Gilmans' cabinets and the results are fantastic! I couldn’t be more pleased. I worked with Designer Cheri Ginsberg and she was extremely skilled, patient, and attentive to our project. She helped develop the layout of our design as well as the smallest details. A couple of cabinet doors needed to be replaced and she took care of it, no problem. Cheri also recommended a contractor who worked out great. I would use Gilmans again!

We had the perfect kitchen and then we had an unfortunate accident and it was gone! My first and fortunately the best call in the restoration adventure was to Gilmans in San Mateo. Cheri was God sent. She is very knowledgeable and extremely detail oriented, gentle in her guidance and accurate with the delivery dates. Keeping our budget in mind she helped design and deliver an improvement on my dream kitchen. I recommend her highly.

Cheri Ginsberg - Gilmans Kitchen and Bath, San Mateo This review has been a while coming, but better late, than never I guess. We did a kitchen remodel and to this end, gutted the whole place, and built it up. We wanted a modern look and were shopping around for cabinets and importantly trying to figure out the best design that would go with what we had in mind, balanced against utility, aesthetics and functionality. We did the rounds and found some good folks who were able to talk to us, until we ran into Cheri. It was almost as if the stars lined up and brought us to Cheri. First, we did not have an appointment and were walk-ins. Regardless, once Cheri was done with here client, without skipping a beat, she greeted us with a warm smile asking how she could help us. We ran through our project from memory – she listened intently, took notes, asking clarifying questions. The difference and what made Cheri stand out, is that she invested the time to learn what we wanted. Not what is important to X, Y, and Z. What our taste is, and what we had in mind, based on which she offered options. She also took the time to understand what is important to us, viz. the finish, the detail, and she painstakingly went through every single nuance. Her design ideas took into account what is described above and in addition to the fact that she is very good at what she does, what won us over is her time, effort and energy to really understand us. When we were in a state of analysis paralysis, and stage of stasis trying to balance the color of the cabinets with the countertops, the tile and appliance, she patiently walked us through all scenarios and was generous in allowing us to bring home samples. We loved the level of detail she got into and most times she preempted and was on top of the project more than us. As an aside, everytime we would visit the store, she would offer us tons of food, water knowing we would often time show up from work at the end of the day. During the ordering process she made sure she checked, double checked, and then checked some more, to ensure every single aspect was thought of, and accounted for. It feels like a miracle now – there were no snafus, no delays, no hiccups, the project went through seamlessly and without event. She offered to visit during installation to walk through the specs with our contractor and was always available to answer any and all questions. After all was said and done, she visited our place to see the completed project, showed up with a nice bottle of wine and goodies. She even helped us file a claim with insurance for a defective piece, took care of everything and the piece simply showed up at our door. I am sure there are good people all around, but to us, Cheri is special. If anyone has had the patience to read upto this point, we strongly suggest to go visit and meet Cheri, and maybe other folks will be as lucky as we were from day 1 through to a perfect installation.

I recently had a bathroom remodel, as a result of water damage from an upstairs neighbor. Gilman’s Kitchen and Bath was my go-to place, and that was the best decision. Debbie Kaufman, their chief design coordinator, has thorough knowledge of what needed to be done, not only with the design and product knowledge, but what was required with building codes and remediation requirements. Debbie also made sure that I didn’t make the wrong decisions as to what made sense when it came upgrades. They are well connected with some great suppliers, and Debbie was able to navigate through some serious supply chain issues, which probably saved me months of potential delays. Debbie also kept in close communication with the on-site workers, to make sure everything was being done properly. Gilman’s is the wisest choice you could make for your remodel.

We recently had two bathrooms completely remodeled and worked with the Design & Build team at Gilman’s Kitchen & Baths in San Mateo. Our home is older, so significant changes were required regarding plumbing, lighting, & ventilation to meet the newer building codes. Howard Gallas, the designer, & Riddhi Pandit, the design coordinator were very patient, making sure all codes were met, while coordinating a beautiful design with functionality. The guest bath included in-wall cabinets, a recessed medicine unit with adequate space for two guests, a Corian surround shower and glass that requires no upkeep. The master bath was also designed with separate sinks, mirrored cabinets, quartz countertops, and heated marble floors. They were extremely conscientious and made sure all needed products were available before beginning. Both Howard and Riddhi Pandit were meticulously thorough, even coordinating the marble tile subtleties in placement. Their design and product coordination were unparalleled. Kevin Madden, our project contractor, was also extremely helpful working to make sure everything was built exactly as planned. He listened to all our concerns and went out of his way to make sure those concerns were met. 5 Stars for Gilman’s, for a fantastic job well done.
