He did an awesome job hanging my big screen TV and hiding the wires. He also hung a big mirror for me and gave me some great advice in interior design for my house. Thank you! I highly recommend him.

I have used Scott Gressitt of San Diego Furniture Repair on several occasions and will continue to do so. His work product is superb. In this day and age finding a Craftsman that is honest, trustworthy, prompt, consistently providing superior workmanship st good value is s rarity. I will continue to use and recommend him to family, friends and other interior designers

I hired Arash Ghiasi to help me both with interior design ideas, and with the management and organization of the whole project. I am sure I will follow up with another review while the project is over, but there is a lot I can say even at this initial stage of the project. If you are looking for someone enthusiastic, inspired and inspiring, energetic and very knowledgeable, Arash is the interior designer you are looking for. He has already helped us a lot with space organization and colour selection, and the overall image of our space. As an artist (a painter) myself, I know quite a deal about color, and I can tell you -- Arash knows what he is doing when he chooses or suggests colors, and he has this rare ability to "synchronize" his thinking with your own feelings and ideas, which is is absolutely essential for an interior designer. The whole process was smooth, quick, and inspiring. As for the space organization, he offered us a solution for an area we've been struggling with for years. And it had a hallmark of all excellent design solutions: it felt completely right and (kind of) obvious when he suggested it. How could we not find it ourselves??? But the truth is, we didn't -- even though a lot of thinking went into it. All in all, we are very impressed with his work, his ideas, and his energy. I would recommend him to any friend who is looking for an interior designer.

We have a very unique luxury design project in the marine and yachting industry. It proved very difficult to find a qualified interior/exterior designer, who is not only experienced in commercial hospitality projects (upscale bars/nightclubs/restaurants), but is also willing to learn and expand into a new space, filled with unique naval constraints, and a myriad of rules and regulations! Fadi Soudi not only delivered on the project milestones, but went above and beyond to make several revisions to the design, based on project goals, budgets, and construction limitations, as they unfolded. The 3D renderings speak for themselves, in terms of quality, accuracy, and attention to detail. Mr. Soudi is innovative, open to new ideas, a pleasure to work with, and most importantly, delivers as promised. I would highly recommend him, and will certainly be working with him on our upcoming projects.

I am so happy with Mazi's services (Mana Design) . He completely designed and drafted the new layout and design for my shop. He got the city approval and pull the permit. It is not easy to find someone who you can trust and has experience in commercial interior design. After interviewing with many people, my partner and I, picked MaNa Design because we found Mazi so professional from the day first. Until the final day, he was on top of his schedule and we were in touch via any cominucqtion system such as FaceTime, Skype, etc. and personal meeting during those 10-days. You must see his beautiful showroom, it tells how he cares about every detail. His company is a real example of success and novelty. I am writing this comments to share with everyone our wonderful experience with his design services. We are going to buy all materials that we have chosen from his showroom and we will defiantly use his company - Mana Design Build Inc - to do the construction part. He is licensed and bonded and as far as we did research on his company, he did many beautiful and amazing construction. I hope the above comment helps you all.

This is my first time working with an interior decorator. I hired Brooke to help me design my living room. We just bought a new house and are trying to mix the older furniture with the new. Brooke, came in, assessed the situation, took pictures and measurements then came back the following week with a whole presentation including 2 different looks. She seemed to really understand my taste and put it all together nicely. She also offered to bring some samples to the house so we can see what it will look like in the room before I purchase them. I'm excited to see the room when it is complete. Brooke has been awesome to work with so far and I plan to continue to use her services! I highly recommend Brooke. She's extremely reasonable when it comes to cost and definitely goes above and beyond.

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!

In a short time, Connie was able to give me feedback on what pieces did/did not work with design and flow of my main living spaces. It definitely set me in the right direction so that I don't make more costly mistakes!

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by your environment? I have! I was a new sleep deprived mom dealing with a baby with so many health problems! I was honestly not even aware of how bad my house got, I could barely just keep the dishes done. But once the dust settled I literally felt trapped in my own house, I honestly felt like I was in an episode of hoarders, I just didn’t know where to start! Then I found out I was pregnant AGAIN, and I felt my world getting so out of control, so when my family asked what I wanted for my birthday I said HELP!!! I didn’t know where to start my search, I only found Interier designers for multi million dollar homes, that probably would of just laughed in my face and then locked me up in hoarders jail. I remember crying to Dustin feeling so overwhelmed asking him to help me after he just worked a 70 hour week! Thank goodness he had someone that was an interior designer!!! Tanya from Auxilio Design came to my house and honestly never made me feel like a failure. The process was so easy and so fun! She came to my house, I sent her pictures of my style, we worked out a budget, and then she did everything! It was like Christmas morning every time she texted me asking about a paint color or pillow. Then not only did she clean, organize, decorate, she works close with a contractor if you need repairs! Tanya was literally answers to my prays! We were able to work in phases, because we are working on one income! Our home is now the home me and Dustin always wanted! When I look back at those BEFORE pictures I cringe and want to cry. It’s ok to need help, as women and mothers, we can’t do it all, and I felt like a failure, BUT that’s not my skill and thank goodness there are people with an extreme skill like Tanya! Your home doesn’t need to be as dire as mine, but if you just want help with different color schemes or want your home to look like a magazine. Tanya can help with what ever you need. Thanks again for making me love coming home.

Soltan construction was very helpful on both my projects. The first one was my residence. Gelareh was the person that we worked with. She is very detailed and very organized. It was so easy to get a hold of her. She was very creative in coming up with unique, modern ideas and mixing them with classic design elements to make our house really feel like a true reflection of us. She was able to work within our budget but still make everything look very high-end. My husband and I were so delighted with this company that we decided to use them for a commercial project as well. The commercial project called for a great deal of specifics with the city, the architect, the design and construction company. Once again Soltan came through. Their attention to the specifics and their efficiency makes them a huge asset. I would highly recommend them especially Gelareh!!

Bungalow 56 | Interiors & Events is amazingly talented! They were there to guide me through the design process and listened to what I wanted to achieve with the look and feel of my home. My home was recently featured with Pottery Barn and West Elm for its beautifully executed design and style. If you're are looking for a remodel, designing a new space or styling for an event hire them because they are 5 star from start to finish.

Karen utilized her design talents in my home using a neutral palate and she knew just where to place the accent pieces for a splash of color. My home feels alive and inviting. She performed the project on time and on budget which is very rare. I can attest to her diligence, her focus and most of all her creativity is very inspiring. I would suggest you use Karen for your renovation, restoration or simply a face lift for your home. You will be very pleased as I am.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
