Silicon Valley is home to tech giants like Apple, eBay, and Facebook, and it also houses some of the most modern and elaborate headquarter facilities in the United States. When Steve Jobs envisioned Apple Park, he obsessed over every detail, from the type of stone to the location of the bathrooms. Steve Jobs believed that bathroom design was critical to a well-functioning space. While helping create the design for a new Pixar headquarters, he rallied for only one set of bathrooms that would be centrally located to encourage a collaborative atmosphere.

When remodeling a bathroom at home, many of us don’t have the resources of a visionary tech giant, but Silicon Valley is full of bathroom remodel contractors who aim to make all your bathroom remodeling ideas come true. The following companies provide home remodeling projects throughout Silicon Valley, and they excel at bathroom design in particular. They were selected for their accolades, credentialed staffs, and their prestigious service areas. No matter what your bathroom projects may be, these contractors can help you realize the new bathroom of your dreams while keeping bathroom remodeling costs to a minimum.

If you are thinking about building a custom home, we recommend checking each builder’s license with the local licensing board, speaking to past clients, and using our bidding system to get competitive quotes from at least 3 contractors. Getting multiple bids is the best way to ensure you get a fair price and that bids include the complete scope of work.
