Electrical work in my kitchen. Houman arrived on time and is very pleasant. It took awhile to find the problem & he was able to explain the problem to me. The cost of the repair was reasonable. If I need this type of work again I will call him back.

Kevin Ghazarian worked with me on a variety of prominent projects at my home. In all aspects from budgeting, design, planning and organization of the construction schedule, he was a tremendous asset. On each home improvement he displayed exceptional qualities of creative-problem solving, fortitude as a leader and task-master and attention to detail in design and craftsmanship. I am very pleased on how well the projects turned out, which is due largely to his professional contributions. Highlights of projects are described as follows: 1. Interior painting of several rooms and kitchen. The design motif was a traditional Tuscani color scheme. The original and uniquely beautiful architectural elements such as the curved kitchen cabinets, wordolf walls, crown mouldings, bay windows and fire place mantel pieces were individually painted separate colors. This was challenging in its multi color design and tedious attention to painting the details. In two rooms alone there were 15 different colors used, all of which had to be the perfect color and hue. 2. Installation of wood floors. A beautiful distressed antique wood flooring was installed in the kitchen, pantry, bathroom and large family room. This involved subfloor demolition, removal and replacement, and the detailed installation of wood flooring and moulding. The hard, back breaking work required a number of workers managed by Kevin. As a result, the work flow was systematically optimized and “driven” until the project’s completion. Kevin was a relentless task master and has many skills as a talented worker. 3. Electrical rewiring of bathroom and hallway. The old wiring was faulty and insufficient and new wiring was pulled and replaced. All ceiling light fixtures, electrical outlets and switches were chosen and installed. A 3 way switch system was a necessity and was devised quickly and installed correctly to code by Kevin. This all required the knowledge and skill of a trained electrician. 4. Construction of exterior deck. This project involved much post production planning and design. “Trek” decking materials, sub deck foundations, metal piers, treated lumber of all sizes, and all the special screws and bolts needed to be estimated and purchased for this large construction project. Unlike a simple rectangular shape, this deck was complex in design with multiple angles, levels and steps. Cutting perfect angles and lengths of Trek decking were a necessity in order for this deck to turn out as provocative and beautiful as it did.

Sherri was great throughout the whole process of renovating our kitchen. She gave us the best quote in terms of all of our wants and needs and gave us the kitchen of our dreams for sure. She was honest and thorough. We will definitely be using them when we are ready to get our bathrooms renovated. Would highly recommend Sherri and Kitchen Bath & Flooring Depot for any renovation project.

George and his team did a kitchen, laundry room and dining room remodel as well as our electrical panel and plumbing for us and it turned out great! We went from a 70's kitchen that was completely gutted to a beautiful up-to-date kitchen. George and his team knew what they were doing and did it well. Thank you George, Danny, Greg, Edgar and Gilbert! Patty M.

One of the best experiences I have had with a graphic designer. I've used FIVERR, ZILLIONDESIGNS, local designers, etc...& NONE delivered what I wanted, in the time that I wanted at the price that I wanted in the time that I wanted. Ahmed delivered on all 3 counts + his work was FAR superior. I would recommend him to ANY & EVERYBODY that values my opinion & taste. Cannot say enough good things about him. Professional, timely, affordable, kind, respectful, & talented. I'm a fan!!

I hired RGB construction to do my kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, paint the interior of my home, and new floors throughout my house. My designers name was Baltazar. He was very professional and came up with great designs for my kitchen cabinets, backsplashes and bathroom tile work. The workers were polite, on time, and took good care of the house. The work came out fantastic and I would recommend them for anyone who is considering a remodel. Tanelle P. Cypress CA

Jeff did a wonderful job on our home remodel. Jeff was responsible for a kitchen and bathroom remodel, he replaced tile with laminate throughout the house, painted entire interior, replaced crown and floor moulding. Him and his apprentice were considerate, hard-working and easy to get along with. Throughout the project, Jeff was flexible enough to complete the numerous changes we made throughout the project. He kept a positive attitude and did not complain when we wanted extra work done. He was working at our home for almost three months, When the job was over our home was completely transformed into our dream. I highly recommend Total General Contracting to my family and friends. I will use him again in future projects at our home.

My husband and I have never worked with a man interior designer before. We had wanted to for some time but were hesitant to do so. After reading the many great reviews about Michelle we both felt like if anyone can help us out our home together (with mine and my husbands taste being vastly different) it would be her. From the moment we met her, she was so easy to work with. She was always in contact about ideas, potential furniture or art pieces and amazingly stayed within our budget. She was so responsive and it seemed like she was working day and night to find us exactly what we wanted. She also surprised us with many beautiful items that we would have never been able to pick out or come up with on our own. She has a real gift and a wonderfully creative eye. Our friends absolutely love how our house looks and we truly do too! We cannot recommend her enough! Thanks again Michelle!

There were some hiccups at the beginning, so the project took longer to finish. However, Robert did a good job on our guest room's laminate flooring. He is friendly, too. I will hire him again if I have a project near Downey.

Joe and his crew were very clean and professional. He would have completed our project a week ahead of time however we continue to add on additional projects. My husband and I appreciated all of the work that was completed. We had three bathrooms remodeled, ceilings scraped and retextured. We had our fireplace resurfaced and many other things done that included electricial. We are very happy and satisfied with all of the work. We will have Joe and crew back to remodel our kitchen and patio next year. Thank you Joe!!

We hadn't done anything to our home for 30 years, so it was time. My husband had wanted to get granite countertops for the kitchen, since that time. We finally made the decision to do it and after talking to one previous contractor, Phil, from HomeStar, took a look. He didn't give us the hard sell, but had some really good ideas. Our countertops were Formica and we had the original 1983 cupboards. Although not important to my husband the cabinets were what I really wanted to upgrade. Phil suggested replacing them instead of resurfacing, stating it would be just as much or less expensive. Our first bid had demonstrated that was indeed the case. Phil suggested moving the footprint of the cabinets and thereby giving us additional counter space. He made other suggestions about the type of cabinets that would allow us more shelf space and more convenient storage. We had certain requirements that were all met and HomeStar was very willing to make changes to the plans to accommodate our requirements. We were able to pick out the exact granite slabs that we used for the new countertops and the tiles for the backsplash between the cabinets and counter.They replaced the old fluorescent lighting to recessed can lighting that is brighter and much more attractive. It all turned out great and is beautiful. I took pictures during the whole process and sent them to my family and they were truly amazed at the transformation! The timing of the job was perfect and they completed it within the time they said they would. The HomeStar crew were very friendly and professional and extremely considerate to our living situation. We always felt that we were the priority and they worked for us everyday until it was done. Thank you to Phil, Rick and Daniel for working so hard and so considerately. They all took great pride in their work and it showed! They told us exactly what was happening and when so that we could be prepared. When we had questions about the job we would always get our answer, usually immediately, via text. We are very happy with HomeStar and our new kitchen is breathtaking!

We hired Jeff from Rick Dorn Constrution to install some kitchen cabinets in our remodel. We had cabinets picked out already and he recommended some others of better quality for less. Installation took 2 days and he cleaned up after himself. He also pointed out some other things that should be fixed on our project which was greatly appreciated. We would work with them again.

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 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 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 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.

    I am in the midst of painting the interior of the house before moving in. It is nice but honestly it does not seem to be turning out quite as well as hoped. It would be fantastic to get an expert opinion on whether there is anything that can be done with accents to make a difference before letting the painters go. Looking for help with just a brief walk through and ideas. Budget approx $150 for an hour. Kite Hill in Laguna Niguel. Thank you!
