Houman, you are amazing. People love our new restaurant. Look at our yelp reviews for the proof 😊. They can't stop praising about our restaurant interiors on all the social networking sites. Houman went above and beyond in helping us open our modern fast casual restaurant. Our budget did not allow for us to afford an interior designer. Houman stepped in as an interior designer along with the construction of our interiors. His ideas and execution were amazing. We couldnt have done the design so well without him. We had a tight deadline and Houman is the type of a contractor that wont mind working long nights and weekends. He worked around the clock to get us to opening day. The day before opening, late night we had a plumbing issue. Houman went out of his way, and came late nigjt to fix our plumbing issue! Thanks a lot Houman! We are thankful! Houman is very organized, professional and courteous on site. If you are looking for a trustable contractor I highly recomend him! From his Proposal paper work till the finishing touches, everything Houman did for us is Extraordinary! We will work around his schedule for our next restaurant opening

After owning my home for about 35 - it was time for a major overhaul. I also wanted to add an addition over my garage that included a new bedroom and to move a bathroom and laundry space that was in the original first floor so I could re-do the first floor as a completely open plan space. I was fortunate to find Debby and Creative Spaces Interior Design to work with me on this extensive (and often exhausting) project. Debby oversaw and project managed the entire renovation and addition and was involved in every detail. Her great taste, organizational skills and financial management throughout an 18 month project were invaluable to the final results and to the level of satisfaction that I have with my "new" home. She was not only a terrific partner with wonderful taste but was critical in finding the contractor, custom furniture makers, and other artisans that were needed to get this done. I would recommend Debby to anyone needing similar work done. She was not only consistantly fun, tasteful and a put joy to work with but I believe we will remain friend long after I have resettled back in my home.

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.

Sandi has been great with helping us plan our living room remodel. She came to our house to take pictures and then created visual designs to help us see her ideas for our room. She has also provided references to general contractors as well as electricians for our lighting needs. We went with one of her referrals to install recessed LED lights for our hallway and bedrooms. She helped us set up the appointment, arranged the pricing, and then followed up to see if we were satisfied with the work. Although we still haven't moved forward with our living room remodel yet, she is continuing to work with us to make this room happen. Sandi is friendly, professional, and talented - we highly recommend working with Sandi for your interior design needs.

Sehra is a true visionary when it comes to interior design and creating a space, unique to your own taste. She provides many options - for example I was having difficulty envisioning color schemes and defining space with my high ceilings and odd size walls in my house. She took my concerns to heart - and helped me figure out exactly what would look great. Her inovative techniques are exemplified with all the work she brings to the table, showing me swatches, color samples, and e-mailed me blueprint samples. Sehra provides many options and will guide you through the whole process from beginning to end. Sehra is exceptional in what she does, no matter how big or small the project is, and will work within your budget. You will be lucky to work with her and be beyond pleased with the results! I will continue to use Scarlett Designs for myself, and would gladly refer anybody to her.

Lisa redid my master bathroom a few years ago. We had to completely tear down the shower and replace it with a steam shower. She did a terrific job and I've never had any problems with the shower since her work on it. I look forward to use her interior design services in the future.

I discovered Thomas, four months ago, after three years of online searching for a local interior designer. Something about his website spoke to me. We made contact and haven't looked back!! In the past four months he has designed three bedrooms, my kitchen and courtyard. He also provided onsite help for the installation of a garden area, plumbing and electrical repairs. We have become fast friends and I don't know what I ever did before him! Thomas is not only a talented designer but he is a wonderful person. If you are looking for help with your home, look no further!! THIS is your man!!

Design & Order helped me with the Interior Design projects for my home and I am SO happy with the results! I have to admit, I was a bit stubborn with listening to some of their Design ideas but once I let go and trusted their expertise things came together beyond my expectations. I would definitely recommend these ladies to anyone looking for design help.

Michelle is a master at what she does! She completely changed the look and feel of our bedroom in a matter of days! Jigsaw took a basic boring bedroom and turned it into a blissful oasis! After seeing her work we decided to take the renovation a bit further and let her work her magic on the rest of the house......The outcome was more amazing than we imagined it could be! Michelle took her time and walked us through each step to keep us informed and involved throughout the process. The personal attention she gives each and every detail is phenomenal. Jigsaw is also affordably priced so you don't have to worry about going into debt to update your home. Thank you Michelle and the Jigsaw Design Team for making our house a Home!

    What can I say! I Hired Staged and Sold. First you actually get an interior designer who designs the space. They don’t just throw things into the home. They plan it out based on the layout and color schemes that attract buyers. They were on time and took 2 hours to stage! I had offers right after we had photos and they helped get my home sold!

    Nicole picked out paint colors for my entire house. She coordinated bids with her contractors and we ended up saving nearly %60 by using her vendors and contractors. Her painters were clean and organized and delivered an affordable and exceptional finished product. Nicole came back and redesigned our art work layout- now the house looks better then ever! I was very impressed with her professionalism (I finally found her after another person I tried to hire on Thumbtack totally flaked). I am so happy I found Nicole! She has great contractors and her window covering contacts where the best value I found.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
