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

I hired Lisa Kay with All In Place, Inc. to re-organize my overwhelming home office space full of un-filed paperwork and furniture that wasn't really useful. I really wanted to make my office filing system more functional and even find some space to fit a chair and a half in my office to double as a guest area. She more than exceeded my expectations. Now I am organized and love working out of my home office each and every day. She helped the furniture I really needed in that space work. At first I was nervous as to how she was approaching the filing and organizing, but she is the expert and gave me a new perspective on just how to look at being organized and letting go of what doesn't work anymore in a space. I would definitely hire her again! Loving All In Place!

I met with Christine for interior design work and was incredibly impressed. She has a wonderful sense of style and was able to capture my personality perfectly with her design recommendations. She has an attention to detail and was very generous with her time -- coming over multiple times to ensure the items were just right. She acted like it was more than just a "design job" but really important to her that I was pleased with the transformation. She is a wonderful decorator and I highly recommend her!!!! She is also a jack of all trades and even acted as a handy-man to remove chair cushions to take for upholstery and install a new light fixture!

Hector and Chris have a great ability to understand what makes a room work while still allowing one's identity to come through on the design. They work great with different spaces and their vast knowledge of different styles open up endless possibilities! We couldn't have asked for better Interior Designers when we were setting up our place in Houston.

Our kitchen and bathroom renovation went so smoothly!! The owner, Guy, has a great eye for design and space planning so we just followed his lead because his ideas were so much better than ours. And at the end of it all, the execution was unmatched. This is definitely a company that cares about their clients. There was always somebody there to answer the phone, we had guys cell phone number in case we had any questions, and his staff is always pleasant and helpful. I would definitely hire him again.

Deisi has excellent communication skills. She has a strong grasp of today's design trends as well as the instincts to identify her clients needs. She is charismatic and well-spoken, both qualities that I believe serve her well in her role as a design professional. She was a pleasure to work with.

I currently live and work in Los Angeles and am extremely busy. I wanted a designer who would make my house a home. Elda came to me with specialized skills, was extremely creative and has excellent communication. Her good artistic eye and knowledge about complementary colors, fabrics and finishes etc. was spot on. She is highly organized, managed the budget with accuracy and made miracles happen. What I liked most was her confidence and professionalism. I will definitely be using her again and referring her to others!

Words cannot suffice in terms of how Dar has truly blessed our family! I interviewed at least 5 interior designers and Dar’s level of experience, attention to detail, and referrals far exceeded anyone else. I greeted him with a hug when I first saw him because he has this joyful magnetic glow that makes you feel like he is a really good friend. Dar is very punctual; he shows up exactly at the time he gives you and he does not rush you. He is knowledgeable, very attentive, and incredibly patient (we would sometimes have multiple hour meetings). He worked around our schedule with our little ones and never complained about the long hours he put in or how meticulous we were in the designing phase. We enjoyed working with Dar so much that we hired him to stage our house, which put our house over the top in a competitive market. I cannot wait to bring him on board to give our new home the “Dar touch”!

I love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

I needed to furnish and decorate a 500 square foot studio condo from scratch in 30 days. Janet surpassed my expectations and I couldn't be happier with the end result. This was my first time using Thumbtack and an interior designer. I work and travel a lot, so I needed someone who would take care of everything - sending options, ordering items, as well as delivery, assembly and installation. Even though it was a small space, this was not an easy project. Janet fully understood my style preferences, budget and logistics. She meticulously reworked the floor plan when I changed my mind or when an item was unavailable. She was constantly contacting vendors to answer my 100s of questions and continually updated me on where we were in the budget. To top it off, she fully managed the complicated delivery/installation logistics with an outside company that she found (and was there when everything was delivered/assembled)! Janet completely transformed an empty space into a beautiful bedroom, living room, work area and patio that I adore. I fully recommend Janet's interior design services and am thankful for her excellent work.

You will love working with Devlyn. From the timely, concise contract through the finishing touches, Devlyn Gorby is top notch! In the last six months, Devlyn has helped design and decorate two properties for us; one an older recently purchased home for my son and the other a small rental apt in Burbank. We are so happy with these beautiful, highly functional homes. The older home was transformed into a stunning modern property in less than two months including wall, ceiling and window treatment, lighting, art and all the furnishing. My little apt now has sleeping for four and dining for six. I reached out to Devlyn after twice purchasing a couch that wouldn't fit though the hall. If I'd started with her I would have saved more money! But I saved money anyway because Devlyn found sale furniture for me as well as a custom made reclaimed wood table. She also repurposed some of the furniture I had. Devlyn is a master in the use of color, lighting and proportion. She is also a great communicator and knows how to "make her client happy". She never dictates but draws out your ideas and preferences. I have high hopes that I will have the pleasure of working with Devlyn again one day and I'm sure that once you've worked with her you will feel the same.

I personally value the time and effort that Qastic team invested in delivering a delicate, and beautiful interior design for my apartment. Living in NY can be suffocating at times, and with my personal life style that orients around partying and working hard, my apartment have developed to be an ultimate safe haven for me and my friends! On the other hand, their precise focus and concise on-site visits helped a lot to assure me of the fact that they meet every deadline they define in the beginning of the project. I would say working with Qastic is a safe an pleasant investment that you would appreciate after the work is done.

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.
