Full cleaning 2700 sq ft home - 9 hours. Best brokered or web-led housecleaning experience EVER. Michael is a smart (IQ and especially EQ) and articulate man who quickly became immersed (with a ton of energy) in our tasks with a high level of sensitivity to our particular home stage. He is a totally capable cleaner, sure - used a totally effective combo of his and our own chemicals, tools and methods - got the house lastingly clean (it's been 4 days since now, time to dispassionately inspect) in all the conventional ways, missed only a few nooks or crannies - and he sincerely wanted to know what we catch that he misses (we got the sense he'll remember for next time). BUT - what else? Most cleaners (especially on first time gigs) reveal a lot by how they handle the dusting / knick knack challenge - Michael got bookshelves and cabinets and chests and mantles and all that clean, "picking up" every little item to dust beneath, AND then surprised us by tweaking placement - staging - of MANY of the little precious things we've accumulated over the years and (not making this up) we had to agree 100% of the time that he'd put things back better than where he found them. He knew this was a scary thing to offer - told us some people ask him to refrain and he quickly restores things as they were ... but folks, this guy (he has apparently worked as a professional interior "stager") is genuinely talented - and this one housecleaning left us with improvements we really liked! So in addition to a VERY well cleaned home - we got insight and a freshening of how we live with some of our favorite little stuff. Hell of a deal - his rates are solidly in the middle of the market range for good cleaners. He has a great, informal way of handling scheduling and was totally candid upfront and easy about the business, personal space and performance aspects of a house-cleaning relationship. We'll have him back in a month for sure.

Nicki has been the designer for 2 of our home remodel projects. For our kitchen/dining room/living room she created an open contemporary multi-purpose fabulous space that we love every day! She coordinated with the contractor on all work. For our master bathroom/bedroom and den/2nd bath--again she executed great use of space, color, and design. We loved that she got what our personal tastes and design style was. She created original designs, including custom cabinetry and tile work.

We needed the right direction with interior design when remodeling our house. We didn't want Rachelle to tell us exactly what needed to be done, we wanted to be pointed in the right direction. Rachelle did an excellent job! On time! With confidence! Rachelle's strongest expertize is choosing colors for different rooms. It is amazing how the colors flow from one room to another. We absolutely love our new home! Thank you Rachelle.

We had Ryan over yesterday to repair 3 interior doors in a very old and actually historic San Franciscan Victorian house. In addition to the three interior doors, Ryan painted the front door which had also just been replaced. His attention to detail was great, there were constant adjustments to make sure everything fit, latched, matched, didn't drag, looked great, etc. His response was prompt, he replied almost immediately and was available to start the very next day. He came prepared for the job, from start to finish. Ryan is very up front and fair in terms of compensation. You will have zero issue with the transparency and fairness of his bids. It should also be noted that this is a very old building. The areas where the door hinges connected to the wall/door frame were extremely dilapidated, the wood was old and and over drilled. It was like putty. But Ryan rocked it. Not only did Ryan pay close attention to the style of the Victorian building and matched the details perfectly, his finished product was seamless. You can't even tell that work had been done. There wasn't even dust on the floor. It was legit, honest good work. 100% recommend.

They were so efficient, had great ideas, positive, fun, kind etc. I would highly recommend All in Place for any of your organizing needs - be it paper work, books, storage items in the garage etc. I’m looking forward to working with them again to assist me in tackling more areas within my house.

I really enjoyed working with Maria to update the downstairs of our home. She helped us warm up the entire house just by adding art, shelving, assisting with reupholstering our kitchen chairs, wallpapering our bathroom, painting the cabinets and updating the light fixture, finding a new chandelier for our dining room, and more. She was very professional and works hard to understand your budget and stay within it, as well as get a feel for your taste. She has a great eye and it is obvious that interior design is her passion because she is amazing at what she does. We are so happy with the work Maria did and we plan on using her in the near future to do some updating to the upstairs of our home. I highly recommend Maria!

If you are looking for a great interior designer to decorate your home /office or any space you've come to the right place. When we first moved to San Francisco, I did not know where to look to decorate our new home. I was so glad to have found Kunjan via Thumbtack. As soon as I met with her, I got a sense of her warm personality, open-mindedness and her professionalism. She immediately knew what I wanted and understood my style concept. She assured us that our home will be a beautiful living space that we will enjoy for many years to come. Kunjan has impeccable taste, an excellent eye for color, and very creative ideas to make any home beautiful and outstanding. Which is exactly what she has done for our home and provided excellent service all the way through. We can't thank her enough! We now have a beautiful, modern, comfortable and elegant home Kunjan's vision is amazing. She took the time to listen to us and help us find just what we wanted and gave her expert opinion on what does and does not work. She included many field trips and was very accommodating of our time and busy work schedule. She helped us pick furniture, art work and accessories. She was also mindful of our budget and timeline we needed to complete the project, which is a wonderful quality to have in your designer. Kunjan is a pleasure to work with and makes the whole experience relaxing and fun. I highly recommend using An Affair with Color for all your design needs.

Angela doesn’t just deliver incredible interiors - she delivers complete peace of mind for even the pickiest of do-it-yourself decorators. Stop agonizing over your home and instead, turn it over into the hands of an exceptionally creative, responsive and budget conscious partner. We worked with Angela for a total refresh of our four-bedroom home and could not be more thrilled with the process and the results. Snag her before the secret is out!

The entire process was great! Leslie was very responsive and easy to work with. I called her on Monday morning, she was at my home taking pictures by the afternoon. Sent me the contract on Tuesday and Wednesday arrived on time with the furniture and decorations. I had lots of workers at my home that day doing various jobs, but Leslie never added to my stress. It was great! My husband and I are so happy that we made this small investment and realize it will help us get a good price. And my home is beautiful! Wish I could keep everything forever.

Scott is fantastic. He has excellent taste, and has been extraordinarily commited to helping us all the way through the interior design process, even going so far as to build some furniture for us himself at a very reasonable rate, and stopping in regularly to answer questions that inevitably arise as we paint, install lights, and furnish our 4,500 square foot co-working space. He is creative, thoughtful, and a good listener, and he has a great sense of how to draw on different design periods for a coherent yet eclectic feel. He is also sensitive to the needs of a tight budget. I recommend him without reservation, especially if you are looking for a modern look.

Serena is incredible! She designed our office space and it is so nice we have had people ask for pictures so they can try and get a similar design. Serena has such a skill for making dynamic, bright, warm, and comfortable spaces. She is quick to respond, stays within budget, and listens to feedback completely. She helped us create a vision for our space and then went above and beyond for it - like giving us multiple floor layouts for more employees as we grow. She even did all of the ordering for me and readily had a handyman and painter available to do all of the installation and painting for the space. I just had to look at designs and make decisions. Truly an effortless and incredible process. Every person that saw our office space before has been in awe of the new space. If anyone is looking for an interior designer I will 100% recommend Serena first. And if we ever move offices I know who I am calling immediately!

They were very creative, fun to work with and also helped us to meet our budget. Most importantly they were very responsive and responsible to the last detail during construction. We were very grateful for their services.

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.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Normally interior design comes pretty easy for me...until I had a space I couldn't figure out nor deal with. I contacted Forsyth Home Design and Matt came to the rescue. From the first consult to the finished project he was there. Dealing with contractors, color choices, fabrics, and coming up with built in design options. I highly recommend them for ANY interior project that you might have. Thanks Matt!

Renu is a caring, determined and passionate interior designer. She converted my ‘house' into ‘home’ in no time. Renu listened, payed attention to details, and recognized my design taste immediately. She did my whole home, that is, bedroom, kitchen, living room, balcony - basically everything. Additionally, working with Renu, I got educated in various things about interior designing, de-cluttering, organizing home, where to do shopping for good things for excellent price. She can also advise on other things like junk removal contacts, home cleaning contacts and anything that comes in the way of interior designing. I found her to be a very trustworthy person. After the consultation - I did not need to be home to get interior designing done, I left my spare keys with her without worrying. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Renu and I strongly recommend her consultation and services. I am definitely reaching out to Renu’s help again, whenever required. -Kshitij

They staged our property for resale and we got top dollar. In addition, we have used them for some of our interior design projects both for our homes and our office.

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.
