A person’s home is swiftly becoming the center of their universe, said Gary Marrokal, owner of Marrokal Design & Remodeling of San Diego.

“Nowadays, the home is more valuable to everyone — including myself,” Marrokal said. “It’s where people want to meet with their family and friends, and where they want their children to entertain.”

Right now, creating customized gathering places is in high demand from Marrokal’s clients, and combining the kitchen and the family room into one great room, is a popular project.

“People want the great room to have an open area with a larger kitchen, new user-friendly appliances and an island,” Marrokal said. “It’s often enhanced with a fireplace and big TV, and during the holidays you may have 15-20 people in there.”

Creating such customized home spaces through design and remodeling has been Marrokal’s specialty since 1981. Marrokal said he started out as a young carpenter in the 1960s and learned the business first hand while working as a project manager for other companies before opening his own business. He describes his firm as a “design-built company.”

“We’re full-service and offer a design center with professional consultants, interior designers and drafts people,” Marrokal said. “Our design center’s atmosphere surrounds our clients; it’s where they can get a feel of what we can do for them, and then we build it for them.”

The showroom offers a range of different product selections, including granite pieces, cabinet doors, tile, etc. “Our designs fit the lifestyle of the individual client, and everyone has different lifestyles,” Marrokal said. “We do a lot of outdoor living spaces for homeowners who want an area that includes a big TV, a kitchen area, a fireplace and a BBQ, so people can meet outdoors. Furnishings and electronics are set up so they can stay outside permanently.”

Master bed and bathroom suites are also popular remodeling projects. “We add square footage, make larger closets and enhance the master bath,” Marrokal said.

In 2011, Marrokal was named the National Remodeler of the Year, and he credits his team of 25 employees for his firm’s success. “We’re a strong team that supports each other and surrounds the client,” Marrokal said.
