Oscar identified an issue with our existing kitchen faucet causing it to not pull hot water. He replaced the faucet and even accompanied us to the store to pick out a new one. Very friendly, efficient and quality service.

We were really pleased with the work Matt did. We had a handful of projects that he completed for us: -Painting and installing trim and a dowel in our laundry -Adding reinforcements, a bike hook and shelving to a storage unit -Hanging floating kitchen shelves He has a great attention to detail when it comes to things like tight seams, clean edges and making things level. He was also on time, friendly, polite and cleaned up after himself. I will note that while we did pay the amount he initially quoted us, it worked out to more than his listed rate of $50/hr, but still seemed reasonable for the job. We'd be happy to use Matt again for future projects!

We were remodeling our kitchen and needed someone to install under cabinet lighting with short notice. Bogdan was available the same day we setup the project on Thumbtack. Bogdan was creative in coming up with a solution that concealed both the driver and the wiring. He was also diligent about finishing the project within the time constraint.

Richard Hynes is a very detailed professional. Upon meeting Richard I felt comfortable about the project. We originally wanted to order materials for the project and he had suggested to me that he would order any materials and provide us with the receipts. Luckily we let him order the material as it turns out the ones we wanted to order were undersized for our project. Richard came and seismically retrofitted our home. He also helped us on our kitchen and bathroom remodels while managing the project the whole way, hiring subs, coordinating between myself and subcontractors and achieving the results desired. Richards pricing was 20% cheaper compared to licensed professionals in the area. We are so glad to have had his help, as the previous worker we hired from thumbtack turned out to be unlicensed at a cheaper price, but ended up costing us a lot more money in the long run.

Juan and his assistant installed a security grill which was complicated by the fact that my wood door needed to be cut and re-hung to open inwards. I was thrilled, first off, that Juan was willing to do the job, since a couple other people I spoke with wanted me to buy a new door. Juan responded very quickly, answered all my questions, and was very professional and clear with his quote. His price was extremely fair, a bargain really, and he was able to accommodate my schedule and stay in touch via email. They worked very cleanly, covering the deck and floors, and tenting off the kitchen with taped plastic. The work went very quickly and smoothly. Juan needed to tweak a few things in order to make everything fit, so the finished product has some tiny flaws. Aesthetically and functionally, though, the doors are exactly what I wanted and expected for my slightly funky older home. I would definitely hire him again.

I had two other designers over to help select the right wall color for bedrooms that have two different colored burl veneer furniture that I designed and had made. I've been performing house and furniture design for over thirty-five years and no one, including myself, had a clue as to the perfect room color. Rachel hit the colors right on the mark for the perfect contrast. The rooms are exquisite. Rachel has an amazing talent for knowing what works. I have referred her to my friends who also think she is impressively talented.

I used J.A. Services in two occasions. On the first, they furnished my SOMA tri-level loft as a furnished rental unit, and on the other occasion, they staged my loft for a sale. J.A. Services not only met my key requirements but also exceeded my expectations on both occasions. My key requirements were as follows. For the rental, I wanted a modern and comfortable living environment with inexpensive furniture that did not look cheap. For the staging, I sought to maximize the value received in the sale. For both, J.A. Services exceeded my requirements. J.A. Services also completed their work on a very tight schedule, allowing me to market my unit quickly. I very much appreciated J.A. Services and their excellent eye for designing contemporary, urban, and comfortable living environments.

We hired MJH Construction Management to complete renovations of our recently purchased home. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric. MJH helped us choose several improvements like changing the floor plan for better use of space, installing a gas fireplace as well as a bathroom and kitchen upgrade. MJH oversaw the contractors to ensure the work was completed and billed correctly. Throughout the process MJH kept us apprised of the costs and schedule - there were no surprises. We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.

Sergey of Wise Stage of Remodeling was an amazing choice. We had a complete remodel of a two bedroom condo in pac heights. Sergey put in new hardwood floors, completely redid two bathrooms, and a kitchen. The project came in on budget and on time, and Sergey was super communicative through out the entire process. He is an intelligent problem solver. We ended up firing our designer a few weeks into the project and Sergey picked out all the finishing materials (recessed cans, baseboards, door hardware, etc) and we're super happy with his choices. His team was also very amazing and helpful. They all work really well together and pays attention to detail. Our new home is beautiful,and built with care. We totally recommend and will hire again.

Great contractor. These guys were working on our house for a few months and did a huge amount of work. Built an addition to the house, built a new bathroom, remodel kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, replaced all plumbing, sewers, gas lines, windows, hardwood flooring - everything. During all construction period Aldo was super responsive, helped a lot with his experience in materials and design, always managed his team to do work on time and with great quality. One thing that I'd like to point out specifically - his estimates were always detailed and accurate and he never asked for extra expenses. We're living in our house for almost a year now and we're happy that we worked on it with this guy, he is a perfect example of highly motivated professional who can do any complex construction project with pace, great quality and within budget. I would highly recommend to hire him if you want your home improvement to become a great experience for you and your family.

David is a caring and enthusiastic man and a delight to work with. He is very efficient and gets the job done quickly. I am grateful to him because, although I am an interior designer and certified color consultant, I do not have expertise in drawing to scale sketches of the spaces I'm hired to design. David helped me by doing those sketches and my clients were impressed. I gave him 4 stars only because some of the sketches needed to be redone because of miscommunication between us. I must admit though that I may have not been thoroughly clear re. measurements. David was always eager to do the best job possible, and I appreciated that immensely. Thank you David. Would hire again.

OpenBay Design worked with our community nonprofit organization to design a empty storefront space and transform it into gallery. As the storefront was a former tofu store, it had a lot of plumbing and odd fixtures that we thought were challenges to the space. However, they designed a functional and creative space to fit our needs ---to welcome visitors, and serves the dual function of a meeting space/gallery public space. OpenBay researched the furniture, lighting and was able to work very well with the contractor and with our budget. OpenBay has a keen, creative eye and listened to our concerns about how we would utilize the space, and followed through to get the project completed. We are extremely satisfied with the outcome, the process, and would highly recommend OpenBay Designs for future projects.

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.
