"Her designs embraced my interest in a fairly uncluttered interior but still showed me ways in which a few additions to the décor could warm up and personalize a room. Everything we have bought is something I cherish—there is no sense that she “forced” me into a decision that I regretted later. She has an amazing eye for décor, she finds things I would never think of to use, and they look incredible in my house!! The rooms done by Chase Staging and Design are lovely, but extremely comfortable and functional. I appreciate the way Tamara worked with items that I already owned and incorporated them into a new design. Of particular importance is the way Tamara respected my “price points.” I told Tamara what I wanted to spend, and she kept it on or below my desired budget every time. She shops everywhere for the best deals rather than going to the most expensive designer stores and buying the most expensive pieces. For many people, this is one of the most important qualities, and one reason why people are “afraid” of decorators—they’re afraid that they’ll be pushed into spending more money than they would like. They don’t have to feel that way with Chase Staging and Design. Finally, Tamara is reliable, punctual and very professional. Thanks again, Tamara, for the latest efforts! It’s always so fun to work with you!"

"she walked in the door, we knew we picked the right designer for us... Her personality is amazing, she makes you feel like you have known her for years like a long lost friend, but with amazing design knowledge and vision. She spent a few hours in our home going from room to room and actually changed things and the feel of this home, making it a more streamlined home. We def. did not want a typical AZ home, our tastes are more modern with clean lines, and she picked up on this right away. She transformed each room and then left and gave us a list of things she suggested doing, i.e., changing lighting, removing and repurposing things, very very thorough in her ideas for our home. We fell in love with her and her lovely personality and design knowledge. She doesn't try to insert her own aesthetic, but actually listened to us as to what we wanted, I have dealt with designers who are only interested in doing their own design without thought to the people that actually have to live in the home. Jill was so refreshing and although we have decided to move on from this home and sell as the location is not right for us, she has given us some phenominal ideas to incorporate when looking for our next home. I so agree with her on her suggestion of LIGHTING and it's importance in a home, by either adding lighting in ceiling or just adding lamps and art lights.. I loved her and felt she "Got us" right off the bat. I would HIGHLY reccommend her to anyone looking for a highly knowledgable designer who is a JOY to work with. Thank You Jill for everything, you opened our eyes to so many things we will carry with us forever.."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do interior designers do?

Interior designers do much more than pick complementary paint colors and choose matching furniture — although those tasks are important parts of the job. Unlike decorators, interior designers usually have an associate of science degree or certificate of achievement in interior design from an accredited program. They’re trained in drafting, lighting and computer aided design (CAD), and are experts in room-specific design and residential space planning. Interior designers use these skills to plan and design safe, highly functional and beautiful interior spaces, from kitchens and bathrooms to family rooms and bedrooms. They determine space requirements, work within building codes and inspection regulations, and meet accessibility standards. An interior designer’s day-to-day job includes creative and technical tasks, both of which often require great communication skills:

  • Creating model rooms and visuals using design software.
  • Researching different textiles, materials, finishes, lighting and furniture.
  • Hiring suppliers, vendors, and contractors.
  • Estimating costs and making bids on potential jobs.

How much do interior designers charge?

You can hire an interior design for a job as basic as a one-room consultation or as complex as supervising the design of an entire new home, helping with space planning, choosing color palettes, and shopping for furniture, flooring and artwork. The size and scope of the job will determine how much an interior designer charges; the average national cost for an interior designer ranges from $75 to $100 or more per hour. Other cost factors include the person’s reputation — interior designers to the stars are usually more expensive — and region. Most interior designers charge an average of $100-$225 for an initial consultation, but some will charge an hourly rate, usually starting at an average of $50, for larger projects that require extensive consultations. Hourly rates may be available for smaller projects, such as redecorating a living room or staging a home for sale; for instance, shopping and consulting can cost an average of $75 to $100 per hour, while staging costs and average $95 per hour. For many homeowners, a percentage of an interior designer’s cost is recouped through the professional discounts they receive from their vendors.

How do you choose an interior designer?

Choosing an interior designer is all about finding one whose signature style fits well with your tastes and who can work within your budget. To choose the right professional for your interior design project, ask yourself these five questions:

  • What is your signature style? Good interior designers can both describe their personal aesthetic and demonstrate their signature style through their portfolios. Make sure it appeals to you.
  • How will you make sure the design fits my lifestyle? Good designers understand that the interior design must improve a homeowner’s experience in their home and fit into their lifestyle; for example, a white suede sofa is a poor choice for a family with large dogs and small children.
  • How much do you charge? Depending on the project, an interior designer may charge an hourly rate, a flat fee or a percentage of the project’s total cost.
  • How will you stick to my budget? An interior designer should have a plan for staying within your budget, which includes full transparency of costs and flexibility when choosing materials and furnishings.  

Because an interior design project is highly collaborative and based on hard-to-define personal preferences, it’s most important to choose a designer who communicates clearly and listens closely to you.

How do you find a good interior designer?

For many homeowners, the difference between a good interior designer and a bad one is simply a matter of taste — but all good designers have similar skill sets. Interior designers usually have a degree or certificate in interior design, with training in design principles and lighting, drafting, and computer aided design (CAD) software. Good interior designers have strong color balancing skills and understand how different colors influence spatial perception and moods. They know the building and electrical codes in the areas where they practice, and they make sure that any contractors they hire also work to those codes. They are knowledgeable about different upholstery fabrics and draperies, stay ahead of residential design trends, and maintain their own individual creativity. Also, good interior designers have excellent space designing skills, so they can arrange a space efficiently and with ideal traffic flow. Ultimately, hiring a good interior designer means pinpointing one whose signature style is complementary to your personal style — so checking out many designers’ portfolios is a must — and whose communication methods match yours.
