Oscar identified an issue with our existing kitchen faucet causing it to not pull hot water. He replaced the faucet and even accompanied us to the store to pick out a new one. Very friendly, efficient and quality service.

I had let my home go way too long and as such became embarrassed about having anybody come in and clean. When I put out feelers for a housecleaner Michael was the first to respond and even after sending him photos of what my home had become he still consented to clean, all the while assuring me that it will be okay and that I'm not the only person to get myself in the situation I had fallen into. As you can see from the my bathroom and kitchen photos Michael has posted it was quite a huge job. He spent one hole day in the bathroom scrubbing and scraping the tiles cleaning the sink, tub and bowl and washing the windows and mirrors (You can see how my bathroom shines in the after photo). Than he came back for another 1/4 day to attack the kitchen ( you can see the results as well). I recommend Michael very highly for his devotion to the job, understanding of your needs and excellent quality of his work.

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 hired Mr. Nguyen to install a vintage kitchen sink. It was very complicated and time consuming. He did a fantastic job at figuring out how to do it and made it look great. He took his time and cleaned up after himself. We would definitely hire him again.

Right in time for New Years! I have a whole new kitchen, dining and living room, 2 remodeled bathrooms and a whole new backyard with a new deck, huge hot tub, and pergola. Eli and his team worked day after day and extremely hard to complete this project in the time I wanted. They did everything professionally and made my dreams come true. They took care of everything. I did not need to do anything at all, which is perfect because I wanted a company that would take care of everything. From the day I signed the contract, I knew what was going to happen weekly and always felt comfortable asking Eli or calling up the office to have any questions answered. I was never turned down or made to feel like I was being problematic (which I am sure I was!) but everyone there continued to impress me day by day with how thoughtful, kind, and clean they were. I really believe in life you get what you pay for, and with Eli and GMBC Construction, I paid and got much more then I actually paid for. The experience, and now the finished product is just fantastic. Thank you, thank you to everyone at GMBC Construction!

I want to share our very satisfying experience of working with Nicki. She designed our living room and kitchen – the layout, the color palette, all the materials. The result is elegant and functional transitional style kitchen. She picked the colors and materials so beautifully that it almost feels like all elements – the wall and floor tiles, wall mural, cabinets, etc.. talk to each other. Kitchen flows smoothly and harmoniously into “neighboring” spaces. Given how utterly and hopelessly uninteresting our space looked (1970th townhouse) it got transformed into something refined and special. We like it very much every day! Nicki has great knowledge of places, people and materials. She is practical, precise, organized and mindful of budget constraints. All her advice have proven to be gold! Nicki is a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!

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.

We hired Sam from life time remodeling with his crew to do a complete kitchen remodel. In the meeting Sam recommended a kitchen design that we like a lot. And it turned out to be fantastic just like I wanted. Between my job and this job he made the entire process very easy and seamless for us. I decided to have the remodel done while I was part time traveling overseas. A friend of mine told me we were crazy to have the job going when we were not there to check on it, but because they have a app that I can see all the time updates from process of the job i decided that it is fine and I went. the app they use is very easy to use it fits a construction company in Silicon Valley, that is one of the reasons why I am so impressed with this company :). Turners out, it worked out great Sam's crew did the job and moving along he sent me pictures from the job site to make sure I'm fully informed in all the details I returned to an almost-finished kitchen. The quality of the work and attention to detail was excellent. The team was conscientious about confirming the details with us before each portion of the job, making sure that each decision was agreed with me and were clearly careful in their work. Sam's crew was friendly and pleasant to have in my home with the kids. I decided the last minute to paint the entire interior house during the project, and asked Sam if he could book movers as i was overseas. Rather than hire movers Sam's crew packed up our entire house themselves, moved it to the garage, then moved it back just in time for my return!!! I thought for sure something would get broken but everything made it back upstairs in perfect condition. They even set out my son's toys for him to find when we got home which was much appreciated by a jet lagged preschooler. It was a small thing but showed the care and respect the crew has for their clients. I'm very pleased with the resolute on the paint and kitchen. I would not hesitate to use Sam or anyone from his company life time remodeling again or to recommend them to anyone :).

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!

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.

I had a small fence section that was started by another contractor and it was a disaster. Nothing was level, there were concrete pillars jutting out of the ground so I fired the contractor and started looking for another one. Victor answered my post on thumbtack and I had him come over the next day to give me a quote. He's quiet, confident and quickly understood what I was trying to do and went about explaining the corrective work that would need to done and in a few minutes listed of the material needed and why the previous contractors design was flawed and ugly. Not only did he finish the project but he corrected all the mistakes the previous contractor had made and I'm very happy with the end result. I hired him immediately to fix some rotten wooden planter boxes on the side of my house. It was a much bigger job than either of us expected but he finished it under 2 days and it looks great.

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.

His designs are sound and address our storage needs well. His work crews' workmanship is excellent and they finished the project within a reasonable time.

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.
