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.

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.

From the first meeting with Maggie, I knew right away that I had to work with her! I had been apprehensive about beginning work with a designer because I was concerned about costs, how long the process would take, if she would have the "big picture" in mind and be able to communicate it or if would be a piece by piece project where I would be surprised at the end and, if the results would reflect my personal taste and needs. Our first convo hit on all my concerns which I had not voiced beforehand. Maggie has been a thought partner, a teacher, and has made the process exciting, fun and quick. I've lived in my house for three years with little change to make it feel like a home although I tried. Maggie has brought in tons of ideas, keyed in on my taste and in a matter of several weeks, I have been watching my family room, dining room, kitchen and living room transform before my eyes. I love her work style, she provides inspiration, we throw ideas back and forth and even push back on each others ideas when needed. This ensures that each decision is the best decision. We use a combination of Pinterest, email, text, phone, and face to face mtgs to communicate regularly. I love that she shops regularly for clients and texts or sends pics and thoughts real time. We've also gone shopping together which allowed me to pick her brain on design and decorating approaches when shopping for myself. I could continue on but do not want to give away all the pleasant surprises :). Maggie is full of resources and ideas and it is a pleasure working with her.

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.

I had never wanted to work with a decorator because I didn’t want my home to reflect someone else’s taste. Clarice is not like that! She listens and has always been able to get a project done the way I imagined. She comes up with exactly what I want even if I couldn’t picture it . Clarice is magic!! Susan

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.

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 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.
