James was amazing - he went above and beyond on installing my vanities, but I also hired him to do all my kitchen recessed lighting and did a great job in bypassing the ballast (or blaster! - inside joke). I will continue to hire James for any other needs I will have in the future.

Electrical work in my kitchen. Houman arrived on time and is very pleasant. It took awhile to find the problem & he was able to explain the problem to me. The cost of the repair was reasonable. If I need this type of work again I will call him back.

I was very pleased with the quick and efficient job that Petar did with the installation of my dishwasher and kitchen faucet. His price was very reasonable and he was conscientious about cleaning up after finishing the job. I would use him again and recommend his services.

Hector is so good in what he does. He did my kitchen faucet and re-attached my dishwasher at my newly remodeled kitchen in no time. Had a great sense of workmanship and very affordable price. I would recommend him not just to people I know but to everybody. This is your guy!

We hired Excel Construction (Eyal) to completely remodeling our kitchen and to design and build a large wet bar. The remodeling job that they did included the demolition of the existing spaces, the removal of several existing walls, rewiring of some electrical outlets and switches, re-plumbing the new spaces, remove and install new flooring, new upper and lower cabinets, install new marble countertops, installing new lighting fixtures, fresh interior paint, some drywall repairs and adding a new large island at the kitchen. Eyal and his working crew did a stunning remodeling job. Eyal create for us a complete design of the work based on what we wanted and needed, guided us through some space limitations of the house and presented to us some different ideas that met our needs. The remodeling job was delivered on time, within budget and with high quality. Eyal was at the house every day and made sure that the remodeling progress is on track. He was there for each and every step of the work, which was extremely important to us. We highly recommend them for anyone who is searching for high quality remodeling or construction work.

We were so pleased with her professionalism that we commissioned Angelika for a larger project at our Beach Home in Sunset Beach. Thank you so much!!!

I interviewed 4 other interior designers and chose DACH design because Debby and Christine "got it". I gave all designers the same information regarding the feel I was going for, my husband's and my likes and dislikes, and our budget. Christine and Debby came back with an outstanding design that worked within our budget (though I did end up splurging on a couple of items) and were very flexible with our timelines. Their presentation was professional and informative and let us know exactly what we would be getting into with our project. They had good quality control and oversaw all the contractors that came in to work on our condo. My husband and I love the outcome and look forward to many years of enjoyment in our beautifully designed home. It was a pleasure working with Debby and Christine and I highly recommend DACH Design.

Sherri was great throughout the whole process of renovating our kitchen. She gave us the best quote in terms of all of our wants and needs and gave us the kitchen of our dreams for sure. She was honest and thorough. We will definitely be using them when we are ready to get our bathrooms renovated. Would highly recommend Sherri and Kitchen Bath & Flooring Depot for any renovation project.

I have worked with Kay Williams twice. Once on my moving and once on my office. She completely transformed my office filing with her work!! I now can find anything I want easily and have a proper way to file. It’s a huge relief!! On my moving day she was a life saver!!! I moved to a much smaller place and was wondering how I can fit my stuff specially in the kitchen. She was a miracle worker and fit everything so smoothly. I highly recommend her work if you need help with organizing or moving. Banafsheh

Hector and Chris have a great ability to understand what makes a room work while still allowing one's identity to come through on the design. They work great with different spaces and their vast knowledge of different styles open up endless possibilities! We couldn't have asked for better Interior Designers when we were setting up our place in Houston.

Prior to hiring Kiko to install our Ikea Kitchen, I interviewed him on the phone to see how much he knew about the process. I shared my plans by email and Kiko presented a detailed quote taking into account every detail. I had already spoken to about three other installers, and although he was not the cheapest, hiring Kiko was worth every penny. He is a perfectionist and truely cares about the final product. Among all those I had interviewed, he came out as the one who knew about IKEA Kitchens inside out. Our kitchen was pretty large and had a complex design which required creativity and thinking out of the box. Kiko took his time to work around the details and produced a beautiful kitchen. Kiko and his team assembled and installed all the parts and cabinets within the timeframe specified in the contract and in a 4-day stretch with no interruption. One job at a time. I highly recommend Kiko for your nrzt IKEA kitchen project.

I currently live and work in Los Angeles and am extremely busy. I wanted a designer who would make my house a home. Elda came to me with specialized skills, was extremely creative and has excellent communication. Her good artistic eye and knowledge about complementary colors, fabrics and finishes etc. was spot on. She is highly organized, managed the budget with accuracy and made miracles happen. What I liked most was her confidence and professionalism. I will definitely be using her again and referring her to others!

There were some hiccups at the beginning, so the project took longer to finish. However, Robert did a good job on our guest room's laminate flooring. He is friendly, too. I will hire him again if I have a project near Downey.

I love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

When our original Interior Designer experienced a lengthy family emergency, I was left in the middle of a huge renovation completely overwhelmed. The project was already over due and over budget. My contractor needed decisions from me yesterday. Victoria, with Sound of Home has been God sent. She was able to meet with me define, create and organize within days. The quality of her work and the professionalism with which she conducts herself is unsurpassed and by far the best I've experienced. I have a lot of my own ideas and unique pieces I had hoped to use in the redesign of our home. I am extremely grateful for Victoria's keen eye and vision for what will serve us well and what may be better used elsewhere. Although we are still finishing a few of the projects, I feel very calm and confident that it will all turn out beautifully with the guidance and professionalism from Sound of Home.

I have hired Ayal Bendayan at Home Designers & Contractors Inc. to renovate my house and the experience was a lot more pleasant than I had anticipated. I remodeled the Kitchen, Livingroom, and the backyard. The Balcony was about 500 sqf. that wasn’t utilized until Ayal built an amazing composite deck with built-in pot holders with benches in-between them that created a new leisure area for dinner, play room, and lounging. The Kitchen is maple with a lot of pullouts and a nice sized Island that was used as a table also. We installed an additional window for more light and a view to the deck. It seems like a simple task but Ayal had to install a steal wall that was quite sophisticated. The Living room had a bar, wine cooler, and shelving out of hardwood Maple. The Flooring Distressed Hardwood oak that gave it a very warm ambience. All together Ayal made his trips to the to get permits and finished the job on time with an amazing finish.

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.
