Home Ally met all my expectations in service and satisfactorily cleaned all my windows and glass doors. What distinguishes Home Ally beyond excellent service is their friendly demeanor as they go about their business. They maintain a high regard for your home and furnishing and outside landscaping, as well as personal respect to the client. I endorse this company as an excellent service provider, and will call on them again for future needs.

I had a small repair of my stone steps outside my house. I had contacted him 6 months ago for a quote and then put the project on hold. When I finally decided to go ahead with the project, he honored the original quote and the job was done that week. Looks great!

I hired Upholstery Works to reupholster my 2 leather dinning room chairs. I wanted a change of color and fabric. I met Arturo to view samples of fabrics. Arturo came to me and was very professional, helpful and very responsive. The quality of work was excellent. I couldn’t believe how beautiful my chairs looked and how perfect the fabric looked. The chairs were dropped off in my house which was awesome and worked out with my busy schedule. I will definitely recommend this company. I thank Upholstery Works for making my chairs look beautiful and go so well with my new home decor.

Moving into a new home we were faced with so many decisions. One of them was repainting, more importantly deciding on the colors to repaint with. We read every design blog and spent many hours looking at Pinterest as time was running out. The painters needed to know what we wanted to do and we still weren't sure. This is when we decided to find professional help to make sure we got it right. Arati came to the rescue. She listened to our ideas and worked with us to refine them. Ultimately she helped us build a color palette reflecting our tastes which we could rely on in our current and future decorating. We found her rates reasonable and working style very flexible. She scaled her services to our current needs while letting us know what other design decisions she could help us with in the future. We would recommend Arati to anyone trying to solve a decorating/design dilemma. Especially if you have not worked with decorators before as she is very beginner friendly.

We really appreciated and enjoyed the process of designing an addition to our home with Mariama. She had an eye for the aesthetics that we wanted, and more than once she offered creative suggestions that took our design to a whole new level. Most important, she helped my husband and me move through difficult spots where our differences in opinions could easily have gotten us stuck. Mariam is talented, not only in design, but also in human communication.

My project was a gut renovation two bed, two bath coop apartment. I had a strict $60k budget, ninety-day window and clear idea of what I wanted to do with the space. I interviewed five Interior decorators and I am thankful I followed my intuition to hire Bridgette because she was a joy to work with. She helped me plan the space, source contractors, materials and was my shoulder to cry when I felt the renovation was over whelming. My project was completed on time and most importantly very close to my original projected Budget. Bridgette’s contribution played a pivotal role in my success and I plan to work with her again because her experience, creative insight and now friendship is invaluable.

Working with Bharti was very helpful in decorating my living/dining room. We had moved into a new house and our furniture was old and did not fit well into our new space. Bharti came and measured everything and formed ideas about what our preferences were. Then she drew up a few very detailed plans to help me visualize the different things we could do with our space. She helped me to pick paint colors, curtains and rods, sofas, rugs, chairs, etc. Now my room is beautiful and many friends have complimented our new look. Bharti was also pleasant to work with. She was timely in her responses and patient when I was indecisive. She is a professional designer and can guide you through your project with ease. I can recommend hiring Bharti for your designing needs.

Full Disclosure - Darlene Cohen is my little sister so this review is biased ...but accurate. I watched her creative skills and path to design begin as an 11 year as she designed and crafted her own clothes at the Local Girls Club That launched her to The Fashion Institute of Technology F. I. T. and her career as head designer at DonnKenny as well as founder / designer of her own clothing line “Forever Kids”. When she had her own kid - her direction and talents evolved into the design side of home interiors Her keen sense of color ....of shape ... and space which turned fabric into Beautiful clothes is now turning Home interiors in to beautiful space. As we built our dream mountain top him in South Carolina - Darlene partnered with my wife and guided us in several key areas - paint color - fabric - and furniture acquisition. The results are now a pleasing and serene contemporary mountain interior looking out on to a view of equal beauty. Darlene listened - offered alternatives and assembled the final ensemble. We love it. You will love her.

It is not everyday you find a person like Ivan. His passion and love for his art is evident in all he does. From the initial meeting, I was impressed. He also has a way of making you feel comfortable and at ease with any project he helps you tackle. I used Ivan for all my decorating needs in my home plus his touch in my garden have made me the envy of my neighborhood. I greatly recommend Peacock Home and Garden Designs. You will not regret entrusting Ivan, if you want a fabulous decorator who also is very knowledgeable and pleasant he is the one!

We hired Agate & Co to remodel our kitchen. From start to finish we had a positive experience with Jimmy and his team. He guided us throughout the decision-making process and offered clever solutions which allowed us to remain in our budget. He was a clear communicator and always let us know his work schedule. He and his team were very neat and respectful of our home. We love our new kitchen! We will be hiring Agate & Co again for future projects.

We worked with the Hubermans for approximately a year as we were building and decorating our new home. They assisted with all aspects of design and brought us many creative and innovative design solutions. Their contacts and knowledge of the industry were extremely valuable. They were very attentive to our wishes and followed through on the completion of all projects in a timely manner. Steve and Gail were always available to us and were an absolute pleasure to work with.

Soudi has an uncanny ability to quickly discern the the needs of her client. The existing assets, the desired change, the need or willingness to "push the envelope" on design while respecting the budget, were all accompanied by a very innovative and beautiful solution to the project. I love working with Soudi as she is full of life, energetic, imaginative and most of all makes me laugh. Designing and decorating with Soudi is a fun job. No job is too big - from architectural changes such as moving walls and adding bathrooms - or too small such as designing new window treatments. A mundane kitchen was transformed with changing entrance doors and adding unique cabinet designs and lighting. A bedroom was transformed with with minimal window shades and reframing existing artwork. Bathrooms had new fixtures, lighting and tile trim. The same can be said for every room in the condo that she completely renovated and furnished, all from 1000 miles away! She is truly Magic.

The value of home staging cannot be overemphasized enough and Monique is truly who anyone needs when selling a home. Several consultations, the scope of the project changing, an unexpected flood were all no obstacle. The staging Monique did was fairly priced and she even made an accommodation when there was an unexpected flood that delayed the project further. Her staging ideas led to virtually every house-hunter praising everything about the house even if it wasn't to their own specific taste. I highly recommend Monique and welcomed her to show the results of my home staging with any prospective seller.

The combination of her expert sense of style and extraordinary taste, and the confidence to not just execute our preconceived design ideas but rather to push us to consider options outside of our box, has made Helen a resource we have, and will continue to, come back to time and time again. Her work has been outstanding in all respects, as the results reflect. I am a real estate broker, and primarily sell apartments in the very large complex where I live. It is important that my apartment is as comfortable and inviting as possible, as I often bring clients to see it, so they can envision what they can do with the less attractive unit they might be considering. From the kitchen - now about 15 years old but looking like it was done yesterday - to the soft soffit lighting and exquisite baths Helen designed, people are taken with how much can be done and how wonderful their future home can look. On numerous occasions my clients have become Helen's clients, and have thanked me for the recommendation. When we outgrew our vacation house and became frustrated trying to find something that would better meet our needs, we decided to tear down all but the foundation and enlarge and rebuild it. We got Helen involved from the very earliest planning stages, and, working with our architect and contractors, she was instrumental in creating an award winning home. She was easy to work with, but exacting, and would not let us accept work that was only 95% perfect. Helen sourced the materials we used, from concrete counters to ceramic and stone bathroom tiles to plumbing and lighting fixtures and flooring, designed our kitchen and baths, and worked with and guided us in selecting the furnishings and accessories. Her imprint was on almost every aspect of the house, which no doubt resulted in its selection, by its readers, as the Overall Favorite in an on-line Architectural Digest competition. Helen Grubel has been a pleasure to work with, and we consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to do so. I have no hesitation giving her the highest recommendation I can.

Deb is extremely talented and a complete pleasure to work with! She has a unique ability to listen to a concept and ideas and then come up with a design plan that encompasses all of that within any budget. We have worked with her on numerous projects from transforming a toddler bedroom into a pre-teen room, a total family room makeover and even projects as small as my holiday mantle. She is my go-to any time I want a fresh look or update in our home. Deb's approach is thoughtful, creative and mindful of incorporating your family's style and personality. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to update their style, transform a space, room or home. You will not be disappointed! We are in the process of buying a new home and cannot wait to see Deb's ideas once she sees our new space.

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 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
