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.

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.

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.

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.

My first project on Thumbtack and I was apprehensive and Mahya put all my concerns to rest. She understood my project, gave me feedback on maximizing my construction effort and most importantly was responsive and professional. I have another project planned for next year and Mahya will be my architect. Oh, before I forget, she has a strong network of equally qualified structural engineers and energy consultants. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. I 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.

Studio Banaa is wonderful to work with! Both Dane and Nastaran are amazing architects, creative in how they go about design, but really just good and honest people that know what they are doing. I have worked with them twice on two big projects in Oakland. They have been nothing but great to work with and I am happy to have them in my corner. Their level of knowledge when it comes to design is truly amazing. And, to top it off, they respond to emails promptly, answer their phone and treat everything professionally. It is rare to find such a great team that truly gets how to get things done with such a high level of customer service!

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.

We hired Fay and her team to work on our mountain hotel lobby renovation and club house. We were truly impressed by the her team's creative thoughts and efficiency. We hired an architect before them but ISO ideas produces much better quality work and with fast turn around. They were very versatile to address our requests and very friendly professionals to work with. I highly recommend to other business and home owners.

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.

At the 11th hour, I decided my mother's home needed some "oomph" prior to the professional photos for its MLS listing, and found Simply Style Interior Decorators in a Google search. I placed the call and Renu called me back quickly. She listed to my desire to be true to the make up of the home, having been built in 1928, and we set up a meeting. She understood quickly, and promised to come back in 2 days with just the right décor to add to our turn of the century home. She did not disappoint. Pictures of the home turned out lovely, and her interior decorating gave just the right amount of warmth and space to the home, staying true to it's vintage and charming personality. I completely recommend Renu and Simply Style Interiors!

I've hired Tamara to design my last two houses, and she did an excellent job. She helped me furnish all of the rooms with new furniture while also incorporating my existing pieces into the design as well. She also helped me select paint colors, art & accessories all while making the house feel cohesive. She involved me in the process, adding to my own interests and style, all while making it fun and seem so simple. Thank you Tamara for helping me to create my beautiful dream homes!

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!

Mary at California Interiors & Design was wonderful to work with and did a great job helping us pick exterior paint colors for a house we are remodeling. She brought forward a lot of great color options, with solid design rationale/logic, that both fit with our existing interior style and also with the vision we had for the house. The house now looks so fresh and new. I would definitely use them again should the need arise!

I really enjoyed chatting with Beatrice during the initial consultation about how we could improve a section of our apartment. She came over and took a look, gave really sound recommendations on what we could do and themes that could tie into the area (a round corner where we usually sit and relax). She was professional and advised us on lighting of the house, colors, and rug and drapery that could greatly improve the tone of the area. Overall I would highly recommend her service.

Jayne worked with my low budget. When she thought the upholstery estimates I had gotten for myself were too high, she directed me to a much more reasonable businessperson. Jayne has a great sense of color and is very affirming to work with

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.
