As fairly new homeowners, during the first big rain of the season we found ourselves with a leak in our daughter's bedroom and lots of worries. I quickly requested some quotes from local contractors and was immediately contacted by Stephen. He was quick to schedule a day to come and evaluate repairs and get back out to get repairs done. Our drywall had to be replaced and we also found ourselves with another leak in the kitchen. His follow up was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Stephen, Jerry and their drywall contact. The repairs were completed in a timely manner and very professionally. Thank you again Box Construction!!!

James was amazing - he went above and beyond on installing my vanities, but I also hired him to do all my kitchen recessed lighting and did a great job in bypassing the ballast (or blaster! - inside joke). I will continue to hire James for any other needs I will have in the future.

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.

I was very pleased with the quick and efficient job that Petar did with the installation of my dishwasher and kitchen faucet. His price was very reasonable and he was conscientious about cleaning up after finishing the job. I would use him again and recommend his services.

Debby and Christine did a fabulous job transforming my office. I wanted to create a space that was warm, safe and comfortable. They produced creative results that I am completely enjoying. They are dedicated, hard-working and committed to their work. They are flexible and communication is smooth. I like their flair. I highly recommend Debby and Christine to anyone who is seeking professional, thoughtful, and creative interior designers.

Steve responded quickly to my inquiry regarding putting in a wall mounted dog door. He arrived on the designated day and time; even arriving a few minutes early. He professionally went to work installing my very expensive “Hale” dog door. He protected my kitchen nook floor and outside area where work was to done. His attention to detail and cleanup was great. The dog door needed to be placed under a window, and he was able, with confidence, adjust electrical wires in order to accommodate the door. He is very friendly and his price for this project was very reasonable. I will definitely use him again for other projects that I need done. I am very happy with his work. My photo of this door came out horizontal, instead of vertical, but hopefully it shows how well Steve installed my double wall Hale dog door.

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 am a very picky customer. I hired Mana Design to do my kitchen remodeling. Mazi is the best designer I have ever work with. He is si patient and smart. He is also so savvy in using his small computer and designing my kitchen even putting my desired material in rendering. Finally, I picked my cabinetry from his beautiful showroom - Medallion - real wood, high quality with highest quality finished that applied to sea boat with custom color. Raul from Mana design installed the cabinets so perfectly and nicely. Joe fabricated my beautiful Quartz countertop and Edwin installed my faucet, dishwasher and other appliances. Mazi was always supervising his team and keep me inform during the job. Nothing to say all good things from this company. I love my new kitchen, it is snapped shot for houzz.com to participate in competition. I recommend to every one just to choose Mana Design as they are very professional and friendly.

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!

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!!

My experience with contractors has not always been favorable, however, Artisan Design & Build has set a new standard of EXCELLENCE. Sidney, the head contractor, was able to understand what I wanted/needed and made suggestions that were cost efficient. Not only is the work first-rate and aesthetically appealing, he was able to complete the jobs before the deadline.

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.

J Cor Construction provided me with a proposal to remodel my Kitchen, the Forman came out and let me show him what I wanted and he was able to put together an estimate. Jeremy was able to come out and review the estimate with me and I decided to go with it. It was very reasonable compared to other contractors. The entire remodel took 3 weeks and I couldn’t be any happier! It’s a new kitchen!

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.
