Dina Marie Joy designed the most incredible home office for me!! Not only is it very functional but the design is stunning to look at. I have multiple cabinets to store my office items including files and beautiful shelves and alcoves for my much loved books and special travel decor pieces. It is also a great place to relax ..which is very important. This office is right off my entryway and everyone says WOW when they see it. Dina did not miss any details in the design and managing the installation...it is beyond perfect!!!

Such impressive craftsmanship - the husband-wife team at California Custom Paint and Design are serious pros - they took a dated bedroom set and gave it new life in a gorgeous matte white. They did an amazing job filling all the holes that were left behind from factory distressing so that the surfaces looked perfect when painted. We are so happy with the work and will definitely be calling them up for all of our future projects!

Jeanette was fantastic! She responded to my request right away and followed through with my alteration needs that same day. She even re-altered one of my hemmed curtain panels to ensure they were the perfect length. She was a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely call her again for any design and interior work!

Karen was amazing to work with. For years I did my own colors and design but could not quite get the feel I wanted. I Felt a little stuck in my style. She worked with what I had done a and brought our home to a whole new level which is so beautiful and comfortable. Her eye for color and suggestions for subtle changes was exactly what was needed to create the feel I wanted. She is the best! And wonderful to work with too!

    We could not ask any more of our experience with Zeenat. She has been extremely responsive, creative, flexible and professional. From the first time I reached out to her via email (she replied within a day or two to set up a time to chat via phone), to the last home visit to double check on the natural lighting in our space, working with Zeenat has put me at ease and I trust her experience and expertise wholeheartedly. She has industry connections that work to our benefit and extensive knowledge of current trends, as well as a great understanding of classic interior design. I always look forward to our meetings and I can't wait to work with her again!

    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.
