If you are serious about hiring an interior designer....yet skeptical...then you are like me. I had never taken the leap to hire someone to help me with room design and decorating thinking that was way beyond something I could even afford. After relocating to Arizona and purchasing my home I began to search for help after realizing that I didn't know where to start. Every time I went to shop I was overwhelmed as I really didn't have any idea what I wanted to do .....I loved so many things but knew I had to have a plan and a budget. I met Lora in the Drs office and we started up a conversation while waiting our turn. The rest is history. She listens, asks what you like, tells you what she would suggest, honest, doesn't beat around the bush, stays within your budget and makes it very affordable. She also,is fun, funny, and will tell you exactly what she thinks. Those are all the qualities that I have loved while working with her. After all, that's why I hired her.....not to insist I do it my way, but to be open minded to fresh, new ideas like wall paper and drapes. I never dreamed I would love those two things as much as I do. Give her the opportunity to help you create rooms you will love. She will definitely not disappoint you!! Thank you Lora!!!!!

Christine has been really great to work with! I’ve never hired an interior designer before, so I didn’t know what to expect. Christine helped us totally update our living room area including the paint, flooring, lighting, and furniture. She worked without our budget, worked with the contractors who did the remodel work, and selected some really great items for the space! I’m so happy to come home from work and enjoy our new living room with my three little kids, we all have been enjoying it so much! I would recommend Christine to anyone!

I found myself in major need of an interior designer as soon I moved into my new home. I didn't know how to execute my vision and had no sense of where to start. I was so fortunate to meet Ana, from Oz Interior Designs, and put her year's of knowledge to the test! I loved that she walked me through every step of the process and was available every time I had a question. Her professionalism and attention to detail is beyond measures. She was able to translate my vision into real life magic. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received! I would recommend Oz Interior Designs to anyone in a heart beat. Thank You Ana!!!

Home Staging Associates not only did an excellent job with the interior design of practically every room in my house, but is also an invaluable assest when it comes to selling homes. The staging is affordable and they have an fantastic eye for design. As a busy realtor, I appreciate their responsiveness and efficiency.

Karen helped me design a smaller living space to appear larger. We added a mirror which I never would have thought of which made the kitchen appear larger. We created a wonderful sitting area with a couple of chairs and room for dancing which is my passion. I got to know Karen a little more and she is a beautiful person inside and out.

I'd been in a funk with my interior styling for a while. Just couldn't seem to get my front room to layout just right. She came in there, used what I had, recommended a few pieces I could add and made magic happen. I love how she took unexpected pieces from my home and made beautiful collections from them on my shelves. I'm a huge fan! I'll definitely use Eirene again in the future! She's a decor goddess.

Before Kim, I thought that interior designers were for mega-mansions or for those who were extra stylish. Not true! Kim designed our home with smart, cohesive, space-conscious choices that turned our humble home into a glowing, modern sanctuary. We love EVERYTHING she did. My husband and I agree that hiring Kim was one of the best decisions we've made. She saved us time, stress, and money - not to mention that she made our home more beautiful than our wildest dreams. We've already hired her for our next project - a backyard sanctuary. Thanks Kim!

I can offer my highest recommendation for Ashli of Design Outside the Lines. Ashli did an outstanding job of staging my bridal shower in 2015. She has posted pictures on her website of my event, and as you will see, everything was beyond beautiful, every detail perfect. I received so many comments from people that it was the most awesome shower they had ever attended, and I was beyond pleased with the results. Then in 2016, it was baby-time. I panicked when thinking about accomplishing the nursery, and called Ashli who came to the rescue big-time! She asked many questions regarding our preferences, and designed and completely transformed the room into a truly outstanding nursery for our little girl. As you look at the before and after pictures, you may think that she must be a miracle-worker….and I’d say she definitely is! She exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier with Ashli’s services.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What does it mean to stage a home?

    Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

    Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

     

    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 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.

    How much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

    Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

    • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
    • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
      • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
    • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
      • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
    • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
    • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

    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.
