Irv and his crew were great to work with. They did a complete redo of our bathroom, demo, new pipes, new electric, new fixtures, wall and floor tiling with beautiful results. Irv gave good advice on design and fixtures, and he was efficient with both time and cost.

I evaluated numerous interior designers before deciding on Magi Designs, and it is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial. It is a company run by a highly professional and delightfully personable couple, who complement each other perfectly and are clearly passionate about their chosen career. In charge of all matters design-related, Mariama’s expert eye for style, color, materials and space has proved invaluable in the process of turning our new house into a classy, inviting and treasured home. Magi Designs has not only met my high expectations, but actually exceeded them. I was sold ever since my first consultation with them. A winning attitude and outstanding listening skills were coupled with Mariama’s uncanny ability to quickly identify our (mainly mine) tastes and styles, as well as effortlessly and creatively managing to incorporate existing pieces of furniture into an innovative design and layout. Throughout the process, I was given options, never pressured, merely gently guided in the direction of my desired look. Moreover, even my husband, who was initially opposed to involving professionals, was very pleasantly surprised upon realizing that his apprehension of designers creating an overly pricey space proved to be completely unfounded. In fact, we were both astounded at how very affordable this project turned out to be! This was significantly aided by the trade discounts we benefited from, as well as our team’s highly commendable diligence and efficiency. This project, so close to my heart, was perfectly executed from concept to end product, very timely and within budget. In summary, they have been a veritable joy to work with, and I intend to continue consulting their expertise. I cannot recommend them highly enough: knowledgeable, organized, detail-oriented, very honest, conscientious and truly caring-- to name but some of their qualities. Hiring Magi Designs was among the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Maggie made the process of my interior design project go smoothly and she was so much fun to work with. Her "out-of-the-box" aesthetic brought colors, textures and styles together and made my house stand out in a way I didn't think possible. We are so happy with the end result and know we can count on Maggie next time we have a project in our home.

Bharti offers amazing guidance and advice to help me with window treatments to bring a room together, floor plans for furniture placement, and furniture and accessory purchases throughout my home. What I love most about her is that she has a flexible attitude (as I change my mind often) and really listens to me and is able to translate the information I give her into the best solutions for me and my family in our home. Bharti was recommended to me by my friend and neighbor and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends, or anyone at all, looking for an interior designer. I love working with her!

Clarice Cutler Interior did a fantastic job with the interior of the new office space for the New England branch of a national engineering company. From the initial engagement and scoping meeting, setting the schedule for our project, to the final design and construction, Clarice and her team were responsive and professional throughout. The design itself was just what we were looking for and all our staff were happy with the color scheme, furniture and artwork selections.

It is with much confidence that I highly recommend Darlene Cohen of Design Cache Interiors, to you for your decorating & interior design needs. Darlene worked with me to design my apartment in Trump Plaza, NYC, which was a challenging space in several areas, due to size. However, Darlene was able to come up with a great plan, layout, color scheme, which has made for a beautiful look that works perfectly! I would highly refer Darlene for any size home, office or apartment, as she certainly has a great eye and is on point - spot on in what I wanted my apartment to look & feel like. Leslie S.

SGH Designs was involved in the process of our home renovation which included an entryway, guest half bath, master bedroom suite and master bath. As our project progressed, we felt confident in their expertise, from knowledge of sources, sophistication of style, availability, integrity, and couldn't be happier with the result. The added bonus was our pleasure in the experience of working with them during the three years it took to complete.

Our experience with Caryn Paradis was excellent from start to finish. We had an unfinished basement that we wanted to finish and didn't know where to begin. Caryn talked with us in detail about how we wanted to use our basement and then came up with plans that included all of our needs as well as ideas that we hadn't even considered but should have. She was able to design a space that incorporated areas for everyone in our family, including our young son--even a stage that could be pulled apart for use as couches when he becomes a teenager! Because we live in separate states, Caryn was able to do much of the work remotely with minimal visits to our home to take measurements, etc. She had finish samples sent directly to us quickly and walked us through the decision making process. She designed specific requests, such as a fireplace for my husband and a guest room/office area. Caryn paid attention not only to the aesthetics of the job, but also the practicalities, such as outlet placement and HVAC. She also included amenities such as a well-placed dorm fridge which will come in handy when our son is old enough to use the space as a hang-out with friends. All in all, the job was smooth, well-designed and surprisingly painless. Caryn listened to our needs and then exceeded them. We would recommend her without reservation.

It is with great enthusiasm that I write this letter of reference for Helen Grubel, my interior designer. I have known Helen for almost 10 years and she has been fantastic to work with. When we initially met, I was planning a renovation of part of my home. Midway through that project our home was destroyed by a fire and we needed to rebuild it entirely. Helen literally helped with every aspect of the re-design. She was and continues to be a pleasure to work with always strives for perfection. As we were dealing with numerous vendors and tradesman, it was not unusual for something to catch Helen’s eye that was troublesome, even if my husband and I were pleased with the initial result. Helen holds everyone accountable to the highest standard, herself included. She has incredible taste but makes certain to give the client multiple options that reflect their aesthetic preferences. I have the utmost respect for Helen, her integrity and commitment to the design process and her clientele. She is hard-working and always reachable and accountable. On top of that, she actually makes it fun! Elise L. Mamaroneck, NY

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.
