I had a disaster of an apartment, that had never really gotten a good clean since I moved in too long ago. Michael did a phenomenal job; I couldn't be more pleased. I chuckled a little when I called my place a disaster and he said he could turn into a sanctuary - but boy, did he deliver! I didn't know my floors were the color he left them in! Very, very nice work!

Jasper did an excellent job of designing and building my computer desk and storage unit. On our first meeting he was able to translate the description of what I wanted into a drawing with measurements. On his next visit he confirmed the measurements and proposed workarounds for dealing with challenges such as the room's molding as well as taking a paint sample to match the color of the unit with the room. The results were better than I expected. The unit truly looks built-in with molding around the top that matches the molding in the room. Though it's a floor to ceiling unit, it does not feel overbearing due to the design, color and seamless attachment to walls and ceiling. He was easy to work with when making adjustments in order to accommodate placement of my computer equipment. When I specified what I wanted, I got exactly that. Jason is an extremely competent woodworker and very fast executor. I would highly recommend him.

I am a SF realtor. This was Nicki's first SF property to stage. Nicki, her partner and crew did an outstanding job. The brochures & website were beautiful as a result of the staging design and color schemes. My client was extremely pleased (the opinion that matters). Also NBL's fee was really reasonable. A local stager would have charged at least $2,500. I am so fortunate to have found Nicki on thumbtack... I now have a new stager to work with.

Rachelle is an excellent interior designer and color consultant. She helped me, a year after my daughter was born to buy new furniture and redo my living room, dining room, bedroom, and my daughter's bedroom. She was a joy to work with! She brought out and worked with my ideas; she added her own inspiration; and all of the nicest touches and pieces come from her visioning. It was a very important time in my life, and she made something beautiful happen! Her gift is especially with textiles and colors. Not only did she help me get great foundations, she did things like having a special custom pillow made for my bed which matched the upholstered bench, which is just gorgeous. The thing you get with working with Rachelle is someone who is gifted and enjoyable in making a process come out and work for you. Thank you Rachelle! Her work has brought so much lasting joy to my family's life and experience. I am now moving out of state, and Rachelle is helping me with interior paint colors for my new home.

Regina and team were fantastic consultants on helping me figure out what I wanted/needed to do with a tile project in my bathroom. We ultimately decided to postpone the project, but their on-site consult and email communications were exceptional. I'll definitely hire them for the actual construction once we're ready.

Maria was easy to work with and cared about our project. She was budget conscious and responded to all my e-mails in a timely manner. Our project is nearly done and looks great so far. Maria has great taste and understood the style we had in mind and kept us from confusing ourselves. She assisted us with our kitchen layout, drawer accessories, lighting, cabinet style, cabinet color and counter tops. I highly recommend Maria for any remodeling projects you may have.

We hired Kunjan for an interior design project: to help improve our living space without making any major furniture purchases. Kunjan helped us make our apartment feel like home! She is very talented, and was a complete joy to work with. There are a several things that are worth mentioning. 1) She spent time with us, in person and on pinterest, learning what we liked and didn't like. 2) She used everything that we already had to the maximum extent possible. 3) She was great at finding cost-effective things and thinking of cost-effective solutions for what we wanted. 4) She has a really great eye for interior design and color! 5) She clearly and professionally communicated about the budget throughout the time she worked with us. 6) She was extremely committed to our project, and accommodating to our schedules. 7) She is easy going and fun. We are so happy with how our home looks now. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her.

Had CA Custom Painting and Design refurbish my grandmothers furniture. I had a total of 5 pieces to redo. I thought the price was great for the amount of work and pieces. The furniture was also picked up and dropped off upon completion. Jen also had great communication and was on top of it for scheduling etc. She also had good suggestions on what to do with the furniture (color of furniture and handles etc.). Overall I'm really satisfied and glad I went ahead and did the project.

Sarah did much of the interior design in my home--from paint colors to tile patterns, from furniture to throw rugs--and my wife and I are extremely happy with her work. The greatest testimonial came from a real estate agent who was appraising our house for sale and said, "You do not need to stage this house for a sale. Keep everything in place." Sarah has what I would call a classically-inspired modern taste. In modern fashion, she is not afraid of using color or bold patterns but she does it in a restrained way that complements everything else in the home. Classically, he is very keen on accents--pillows, throws, centerpieces--but the rooms never appear cluttered or overdone. Her taste in furniture and lighting is also inspired by the melding of the classic and modern. Sarah was great to work with. Dogged, but not overbearing. Inspired but open-minded. And importantly, while she has wonderful taste, she appreciates value.

Serena and her staff are amazing designers! They helped me to furnish my entire place (two-bedroom apt) staying in the budget agreed with no impact on the final result! Serena always knows how to put a touch of color or the right light to every spot. Her style is modern, simple and she knows how to make the difference with the small details.

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

Worked with Teddy and Ana on our apartment and they really did a fantastic job at a very reasonable rate. There aren't many designers who can get work done with a 2K budget. Ana was a color expert and explained how different lighting would change the hue of certain colors. We were afraid of dark colors but are so happy with the color she helped us pick out. Teddy really helped us reuse our existing furniture and added a few new things that made the space feel entirely new. Their team also came in and did the furniture assembly, painting, and lighting installation. We liked that we could pay online and the entire process was so easy. Great communication. If you're looking for a no nonsense experience with a great result definitely give them a call.

David designed our kitchen, dining room, bathroom and living room. In short, David is a design genius with small SF spaces. His design solutions are practical, creative and aesthetically pleasing. David is also very good at selecting paint color, floor color, and all kitchen surfaces. David is budget conscious and was willing to mix in IKEA elements into our kitchen (cabinet boxes) but also use custom cabinet doors. Lastly, David is also an excellent marriage counselor at no extra cost...

I first met Jill when we asked her for some ideas for window treatments for our newly purchased weekend home that had absolutely nothing on the windows at all. Jill listened carefully to what we wanted and came back to us with beautiful fabric and design ideas that exactly captured our vision. She was able to keep our project within a reasonable budget (although doing an entire house of window treatments is not for the faint-of-heart!) and delivered our window treatments on time, including recommending a great installer. Everything looks absolutely gorgeous, and I couldn't be more pleased with the finished product. I actually feel joyful every time I walk into the house and see how beautiful the windows look. Since then, Jill has helped me choose colors for the family room remodel in our other home, as well as doing a set of window treatment for our master bedroom, including advising me on coordinating paint colors and pillows for the bed. Her eye for color and design is impeccable, and she is a pleasure to work with. I give her my highest recommendation.

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.
