I have used Scott Gressitt of San Diego Furniture Repair on several occasions and will continue to do so. His work product is superb. In this day and age finding a Craftsman that is honest, trustworthy, prompt, consistently providing superior workmanship st good value is s rarity. I will continue to use and recommend him to family, friends and other interior designers

I was unsure about this whole interior designer thing, but the customer service alone was so good that it put me at ease. I felt so comfortable with the whole process I immediately signed up with Ghiasi Designs. The care and passion makes them stand out and I couldn't be happier.

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

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.

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!

In a short time, Connie was able to give me feedback on what pieces did/did not work with design and flow of my main living spaces. It definitely set me in the right direction so that I don't make more costly mistakes!

Have you ever felt so overwhelmed by your environment? I have! I was a new sleep deprived mom dealing with a baby with so many health problems! I was honestly not even aware of how bad my house got, I could barely just keep the dishes done. But once the dust settled I literally felt trapped in my own house, I honestly felt like I was in an episode of hoarders, I just didn’t know where to start! Then I found out I was pregnant AGAIN, and I felt my world getting so out of control, so when my family asked what I wanted for my birthday I said HELP!!! I didn’t know where to start my search, I only found Interier designers for multi million dollar homes, that probably would of just laughed in my face and then locked me up in hoarders jail. I remember crying to Dustin feeling so overwhelmed asking him to help me after he just worked a 70 hour week! Thank goodness he had someone that was an interior designer!!! Tanya from Auxilio Design came to my house and honestly never made me feel like a failure. The process was so easy and so fun! She came to my house, I sent her pictures of my style, we worked out a budget, and then she did everything! It was like Christmas morning every time she texted me asking about a paint color or pillow. Then not only did she clean, organize, decorate, she works close with a contractor if you need repairs! Tanya was literally answers to my prays! We were able to work in phases, because we are working on one income! Our home is now the home me and Dustin always wanted! When I look back at those BEFORE pictures I cringe and want to cry. It’s ok to need help, as women and mothers, we can’t do it all, and I felt like a failure, BUT that’s not my skill and thank goodness there are people with an extreme skill like Tanya! Your home doesn’t need to be as dire as mine, but if you just want help with different color schemes or want your home to look like a magazine. Tanya can help with what ever you need. Thanks again for making me love coming home.

Verified review

Anina has helped us redesign our 3 Br. home last September and she has done an exceptional job. She used some of my favorite antiques as central focal pieces and incorporated them into the overall design. My house looks fantastic! There is no more clutter, and there is a better flow from room to room. Anina made sure that the new design reflects my own personality. Anina is very kind, understands what you need and works well with any personality (my family members). She is a great communicator, responds in a timely manner. She completed the project within the time and budget planned. Her fee was very reasonable, too. Anina is an excellent professional designer. We highly recommend her for any design project.

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.

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!!

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.
