He did an awesome job hanging my big screen TV and hiding the wires. He also hung a big mirror for me and gave me some great advice in interior design for my house. Thank you! I highly recommend him.

I had a lady come by for the initial estimate. Her name was Jaeleah. She was an estimate manager. She was very nice and asked a lot of questions and took down a lot of notes and even left me with a business card. From there within the hour I received an email regarding the estimate and availability. I then, had a scheduling manager contact me to confirm details and day along with time. On the day of the actual clean up, I had a lead landscaper by the name of Catarino ( Cat for short) come with a young man named Kevin, Cat did not speak perfect English but he could communicate and tried very hard, Kevin spoke perfect English and helped me to confirm what I thought Cat was saying. The guys started the job which consisted of removing grass and weeds on a 3500 sq foot lot. I figured it would take the guys 2 days to do that kind of job. When I got home after work around 6pm the guys were actually finishing up. I mean, I was shocked. I walked the lot with them and we went over ideas and I mean I was so amazed by how hard and fast they got this job done. As soon as my husband gets back in town we are going to confirm what our next plant of action will be. Cat recommended I install new more drought resistant sod along with some gorgeous flowers he showed me that compliment the color of my home really well. He even showed me pictures of other sod and landscape designs he has done in the past and the work was exquisite. For the quality of work these guys provide and the professionalism these guys could easily be charging double if not triple the prices they charge. I am thankful I found you guys. Thanks for all the hard work you all did for us! We are excited for whats to come.

I will continue to use and recommend him to family, friends and other interior designers

Fadi was the best Interior designer and I did get estimates from other ones. He was able to give me 3D render with a finish product even before the improvements got started. I strongly recommend him to any future projects, my office design is very unique and it came out beautiful. He is very dependable and a very talented designer

My husband and I have never worked with a man interior designer before. We had wanted to for some time but were hesitant to do so. After reading the many great reviews about Michelle we both felt like if anyone can help us out our home together (with mine and my husbands taste being vastly different) it would be her. From the moment we met her, she was so easy to work with. She was always in contact about ideas, potential furniture or art pieces and amazingly stayed within our budget. She was so responsive and it seemed like she was working day and night to find us exactly what we wanted. She also surprised us with many beautiful items that we would have never been able to pick out or come up with on our own. She has a real gift and a wonderfully creative eye. Our friends absolutely love how our house looks and we truly do too! We cannot recommend her enough! Thanks again Michelle!

This is my first time working with an interior decorator. I hired Brooke to help me design my living room. We just bought a new house and are trying to mix the older furniture with the new. Brooke, came in, assessed the situation, took pictures and measurements then came back the following week with a whole presentation including 2 different looks. She seemed to really understand my taste and put it all together nicely. She also offered to bring some samples to the house so we can see what it will look like in the room before I purchase them. I'm excited to see the room when it is complete. Brooke has been awesome to work with so far and I plan to continue to use her services! I highly recommend Brooke. She's extremely reasonable when it comes to cost and definitely goes above and beyond.

Cassie is currently helping me with furniture selection and arrangement for a new house. Cassie came out on short notice and measured and photographed all my rooms and came up with several design ideas within that same day. She really listens to her clients and strives to meet their vision while respecting the budget. She is a pleasure to work with and I will update with photos when the project is done but she has already exceeded my expectations.

Over the years, James has designed the interior of three homes for me! I can honestly say, he embodies the meaning of professionalism - organized, accountable, responsive, and he works with so much integrity, which is an incredibly important value to me. And, he is probably the most talented designer I have ever encountered! Each time, he stayed within my budget, went out of his way to make things work when I gave him seemingly impossible restrictions, and always delivered what I needed in a timely fashion that exceeded my aesthetic expectations. For my most recent home, I gave him a very specific budget and a "beachside cottage" concept. He found every piece of furniture for me within my budget, and even helped me lay out exactly where my existing artwork could go. The deliverable was so methodical, comprehensive and sensibly laid out. He had thought of everything! When people visit my home, they always comment on how aesthetically calm and beautiful it is to be in the space, but also how logically the furniture and art arranged. I couldn't have done this without him and would recommend him to anyone. His talent surpasses boundaries. His creativity and imagination are so robust that he is able to conceive of such a diversity of concepts. I am so impressed by him and thankful for all his help over the years. Not only has he made my moving and designing processes less stressful, he has made my life and living space more beautiful! Thank you, James!

Finally, someone who gets my style !!! I love color and mixing design styles and after years of being told I “probably could not afford” the decorating I was asking for, I was wrong for mixing contemporary with traditional, I needed to use less color, and other comments, I feel lucky that I found Elena! It has been more than a year since we started working together to update my home. I love decorating and sometimes know exactly what I am looking for but can’t always describe it. Elena works with me, helping to transform the vision of what I want, not what she thinks I need or should have for my home. She also will select items I would have never thought of picking for myself and when that happens, WOW !

Soltan construction was very helpful on both my projects. The first one was my residence. Gelareh was the person that we worked with. She is very detailed and very organized. It was so easy to get a hold of her. She was very creative in coming up with unique, modern ideas and mixing them with classic design elements to make our house really feel like a true reflection of us. She was able to work within our budget but still make everything look very high-end. My husband and I were so delighted with this company that we decided to use them for a commercial project as well. The commercial project called for a great deal of specifics with the city, the architect, the design and construction company. Once again Soltan came through. Their attention to the specifics and their efficiency makes them a huge asset. I would highly recommend them especially Gelareh!!

Karen utilized her design talents in my home using a neutral palate and she knew just where to place the accent pieces for a splash of color. My home feels alive and inviting. She performed the project on time and on budget which is very rare. I can attest to her diligence, her focus and most of all her creativity is very inspiring. I would suggest you use Karen for your renovation, restoration or simply a face lift for your home. You will be very pleased as I am.

    After purchasing our home in summer 2012, we've been doing a complete reno of the place on and off. We have had 4 different contractor companies work on flooring, painting, kitchen, small bathroom, and, finally, the master bathroom. The last project was done by Remcon Design. Honestly, I've been so disappointed with the previous jobs that the contractors have done on our place that I was very weary and not expecting much from the "new people." However, they sure proved me wrong! Staying in touch and communication with Tarja and Rene were outstanding! All of the concerns were addressed promptly and without any delay. I am very much of an OCD person when it comes down to cleanliness, and they did their best to try and accommodate my pet peeve. The job was done professionally, in a timely manner. Clean site afterwords and pleasant people to deal with! Thank you, Remcon Design, Roy, Tarja, Rene, and others for the wonderful job you did! I shall definitely use your services in the future!

    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.
