I originally hired Cruz to put up a fence. However, I quickly realized he was skilled at other areas including painting and home improvement/repair. He did an excellent job putting up my fence, painting it, as well as fixing a few things inside my house in the kitchen and living room. He was extremely professional and his work quality was great. Would definitely hire him again if I need any help with home improvement. Highly recommended for any and all home repair, fencing, and painting!

We were really pleased with the work Matt did. We had a handful of projects that he completed for us: -Painting and installing trim and a dowel in our laundry -Adding reinforcements, a bike hook and shelving to a storage unit -Hanging floating kitchen shelves He has a great attention to detail when it comes to things like tight seams, clean edges and making things level. He was also on time, friendly, polite and cleaned up after himself. I will note that while we did pay the amount he initially quoted us, it worked out to more than his listed rate of $50/hr, but still seemed reasonable for the job. We'd be happy to use Matt again for future projects!

I needed some paint and other hauling. I decided at the same time I would get a new kitchen faucet installed. Every aspect was flawless and pleasant. Good communication, fast response, first rate work, and a fraction of the price of others. I will use for my other handyman needs.

My wife and I would give them 6 stars if I could. Gustavo and his team did an awesome job building a new fence for us. It was a somewhat complex job involving two different architectural designs (one across the front of the property and one down the side) plus installing a new iron driveway gate. My wife and I watched in amazement as they worked carefully, taking the time to get everything just right. They did a really terrific job for us and we would recommend them highly. Please feel free to contact us as a reference anytime. Thanks so much to Gustavo and his great team.

We got our 3 bathrooms remodeled and we extended our kitchen and Eli was great. He came with the architect right away to do the layout of our new kitchen and they submitted them to the city and got permits within a week from when we signed. Less then 3 months later, we have 3 new bathrooms and a huge new kitchen and it is perfection. We are so happy and thankful!

Juan and his assistant installed a security grill which was complicated by the fact that my wood door needed to be cut and re-hung to open inwards. I was thrilled, first off, that Juan was willing to do the job, since a couple other people I spoke with wanted me to buy a new door. Juan responded very quickly, answered all my questions, and was very professional and clear with his quote. His price was extremely fair, a bargain really, and he was able to accommodate my schedule and stay in touch via email. They worked very cleanly, covering the deck and floors, and tenting off the kitchen with taped plastic. The work went very quickly and smoothly. Juan needed to tweak a few things in order to make everything fit, so the finished product has some tiny flaws. Aesthetically and functionally, though, the doors are exactly what I wanted and expected for my slightly funky older home. I would definitely hire him again.

Regina and Jason did a great job installing tile and a new shower enclosure in our lower bath. It looks great. We had work being done in the back yard at the same time, and they were very flexible working with the landscape contractors. And their prices are very reasonable.

Rafael is very professional. I hired him for a number of projects, such as installing dishwasher, range hood, kitchen faucet, door locks, garbage disposal, outdoor light fixtures, fixing windows handle, etc. He did amazing job and quality work. For example, previous cabinet is 36in (two 18in doors). Rafael installed 24in dishwasher and made a 12in door like the original cabinet. It is really amazing. When he finished his work everyday, he always cleaned everything up. He also cares about details. I would like to recommend him to everyone, and I would like to hire him again for my future projects.

Alex installed a new drop in sink in our kitchen. The work required cutting a a new hole in our existing granite countertop and installing a new faucet, garbage disposal and connecting all of the plumbing. Alex was excellent and a pleasure to work with. I really appreciated the timeliness of his communications and his depth of knowledge. The quality of his work was outstanding and we are very happy with the work he completed. Would highly recommend Alex.

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 MJH Construction Management to complete renovations of our recently purchased home. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, MJH determined the best solutions to a number of complex repairs and additions including floor leveling, heating, plumbing and electric. MJH helped us choose several improvements like changing the floor plan for better use of space, installing a gas fireplace as well as a bathroom and kitchen upgrade. MJH oversaw the contractors to ensure the work was completed and billed correctly. Throughout the process MJH kept us apprised of the costs and schedule - there were no surprises. We are delighted with the results - our renovated house came out fantastic.

Angela doesn’t just deliver incredible interiors - she delivers complete peace of mind for even the pickiest of do-it-yourself decorators. Stop agonizing over your home and instead, turn it over into the hands of an exceptionally creative, responsive and budget conscious partner. We worked with Angela for a total refresh of our four-bedroom home and could not be more thrilled with the process and the results. Snag her before the secret is out!

Sergey of Wise Stage of Remodeling was an amazing choice. We had a complete remodel of a two bedroom condo in pac heights. Sergey put in new hardwood floors, completely redid two bathrooms, and a kitchen. The project came in on budget and on time, and Sergey was super communicative through out the entire process. He is an intelligent problem solver. We ended up firing our designer a few weeks into the project and Sergey picked out all the finishing materials (recessed cans, baseboards, door hardware, etc) and we're super happy with his choices. His team was also very amazing and helpful. They all work really well together and pays attention to detail. Our new home is beautiful,and built with care. We totally recommend and will hire again.

I needed a variety of different projects completed at my rental property ranging from flooring, new kitchen fixtures, new sink, new door and some exterior siding that had dry rot. Anthony was wonderful, he knew I was on a limited time frame and accomplished everything in quality fashion, made some great suggestions, and was within budget. I can't imagine a better experience! I highly recommend Floors to Celing's services!

ISO Ideas designed our new home architecture and interior design in the Bay Area. We loved the modern style and customized details. They were very creative, fun to work with and also helped us to meet our budget. Most importantly they were very responsive and responsible to the last detail during construction. We were very grateful for their services.

I had Mary mock up a 3D model of a kitchen and bath remodel we did at the start of the year. She was very quick, and the model was exactly what we were looking for to understand what the design would look like, and to pull plans off of. She provided several views and a short video walkthrough of the space in 3D, and then accompanying plans and sections. She also went back and forth with us to edit the model/design to get exactly what we wanted. If I ever do any other work to my house, I will contact her.

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 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.

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.
