We hired Maks to paint the interior of our home and to put in laminate, and tile flooring. His work was excellent for the price he charged us. Maks was very professional and handled his work in a methodical manner. He briefed us on what his plan was for the entire project and kept us posted throughout. Maks not only met his deadline, but finished early. I highly recommend hiring Maks for whatever flooring and/or painting projects you may have. Kevin

Toni's passion for her job was evident from the first email we exchanged. After reviewing four responses we chose to meet with Toni to go over our plans. We decided to hire her on the spot at that very first meeting. If you have the need of an interior designer, give Toni the chance to meet with you. She's got a great sense of style, wonderful personality, and the skill, experience, and contacts you'll need to complete whatever project you have in mind. We were very happy and will contact her again if we need her services in the future.

When my husband and I were moving to a new house twice the size of our old house, I knew we needed help to create the home we desired. I spoke with a few local designers, but when I spoke with Leyla I knew she was the right person for us. What we appreciated most was that we could be brutally honest and not only did she not take offense, she encouraged our honesty. She was able to capture exactly the look and feel we desired in our home. Although we shared our design ideas, she had no problem challenging us to think outside of our typical design approach and we are so glad we trusted her process. We could not be more happy with our home. When I saw it for the first time, I was moved to tears. Having grown up with so little, we could hardly fathom that we were living in a home that was so beautiful. We were so pleased with the work done inside of our home that we did not hesitate to contact DSI when we found out we were pregnant. Once again the designers of DSI showed up and showed out. Our nursery design was the perfect balance of baby and glam like the rest of our home. Having DSI design our nursery was particularly meaningful because we had experienced several years of infertility but were finally able to conceive. We were so happy to bring our baby girl home to her nursery. As if having DSI design the entire interior of our home was not enough, we called them back yet again to help with our backyard. I remember sitting on our back patio in front of our firepit looking at our water feature and feeling grateful for the oasis DSI created both inside and outside of our home. There is a certain amount of vulnerability you experience when letting someone in your home. Leyla and the designers from Design Shop Interiors never took this for granted and always treated our home, our opinions and our money with the utmost respect. We are so glad we let DSI into our home and ... into our hearts.

Molly has a great way of pulling out the information from her clients to provide them with exactly what they need to make their house beautiful in a very special way. She is kind, honest as the day is long, and beautiful inside as well as outside. During the Christmas holiday season, I loved what she did for my happy little home so much that I left my Christmas decor up well into January-- only removing 90% of it in time for Valentine's Day! My house was so beautiful. She was able to create this within my modest Budget. I am thrilled to be able to recommend Molly's design services to everyone who is looking for a little help or an entire project. Call Molly so you too can be in your own unique space, surrounded by everything you love.

About

My work exhibits attention to detail, functionality, and aesthetic. Part of why I love design the most is to capture the personal styles of my clients that they can't quite express on their own. I design a lot of custom pieces, one of a kind pieces, to add originality to every home.

About

Each project is specially tailored to our client's needs. During our first meetings, we listen to what the client is saying and ask questions, that gives us an insight into how they want to use the space, their lifestyle, likes, dislikes, etc.. We use this information to develop a plan for their project that reflects them. The most important thing is to listen to the client and not try to push a style on them. The bottom line is - This is YOUR home and it should reflect you and how you want to live in it.

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.
