We hired Shane to add a bedroom in our already finished basement. He won the bid on price, but also because he had really good ideas about how to reconfigure the space, which made it much more useful, and also attractive. He added a built-in shelf to one area, which is really beautiful and enhances the space tremendously. Based on Shane's work in the basement, we hired him to tear a wall out in our dining room, and add a door to another room in order to create a home office. We are planning to continue with more renovations, and intend to hire J&S for everything. They are easy to work with, and communicate clearly about changes of scope, and any issues that come up. We are very happy with the quality of the work as well.

Lhet is phenomenal, professional, and personable. Before I asked for help through Thumbtack, I was so sure I could organize my home myself. For months, I thought I was going to get to it. I am so happy I asked for help. I invested in my peace of mind and a structured home! Lhet does it all! I got my entire home organized and deep cleaned. It is beautiful and I am at ease and so very happy! Thanks, Lhet!!!!

I don't write many reviews, but I wanted to go out of my way to make sure to to write a detailed one for Yosif and Smart House Remodeling. I think I am uniquely qualified to give a very thorough review, as I hired Yosif and his team to do a basement renovation covering over 1,400 square feet. This was a big job, and below you can see some of the before and after photos from a few of the rooms. I'm a pretty particular client; I'm an engineer and pay attention to the details and quality of work that I get done and was very pleased with the outcome on this. I hired Yosif after getting approximately 8 (!) different bids for this job. So that shows you what he was up against. I think the typical experience with working with Yosif is likely as follows: you have him out for an estimate, he has some good ideas about the work that you may have not considered, he gives you a prompt estimate with very reasonable prices, and then you hire him to start the job. Once work is well underway, you realize you've got something really great going and then start creating new contracts to do all kinds of additional work with him--work that perhaps you've put off because you dreaded having to go through finding a quality contractor for each additional project. In my case, I started off with vinyl plank flooring over 1400 sq. feet (spot-leveling & demo needed), with some switch relocation and other electrical work (outlet additions, ceiling box), recessed lighting installation, and HVAC vent installations. By the end I had added significant drywall patching (including closing holes in attic), replacing a huge wood paneled room with all-new drywall, installed an attic ladder, replaced a rear door (including new framing & storm door install), repaired a front door, had a custom divider wall built to hide an HVAC unit, had soundproofing insulation put in, multiple in-wall access panels, minor plumbing, and I could honestly go on. I got an amazing amount done beyond what I originally though was possible for my budget. Yosif is careful to make sure that you are OK with the finished product on each phase of the work that is being done, and is willing to redo things that are not quite right. Each job is properly finished too, with the small things like priming on drywall (plenty skip this!), clean up, and material disposal. I found him very trustworthy as well and had no issue with him doing work at my home regardless of whether I was there or not, yet he was also respectful of my schedule. I would also consider him skilled at a very broad range of construction areas/topics, which if you've hired a number of contractors before you probably know that is not always the case. Although I do want to note that I found his drywall work especially good. I don't think many people would assume that he has 10+ years of experience, but it shows in what he is capable of an his approach to solving the problems that you encounter (and you will always find something interesting when you start opening up walls!). In short, I would gladly recommend him without any reservations.

I hired New Vision Properties Construction Services to remodel my kitchen. It badly needed work and had to be completely gutted. New Vision Properties provided outstanding service and high-quality work--they finished my project on schedule, kept me appraised of progress and were very transparent about costs. Richard and his crew were courteous and very professional. My new kitchen looks great, and I plan to re-hire them for my next remodeling project.

Mr. Handyman is a passionate professional that performs above and beyond the bar. He responded immediately with a rough quote and came out to our home to complete an on-site estimate, paying attention to the details of the scope of work requested. He also identified some areas that we were unaware of which showed us he knew what he was doing. We decided to choose Mr. Handyman and we are very happy with our decision. Our project, which consisted of framing and installing drywall, had a tight schedule, yet Mr. Handyman and his crew were committed to completing the job. They were timely arrivers and good with communication as they updated us daily on progress. The completed outcome of the project was satisfactory and professionally done as we asked for. These guys are dedicated workers and we hope to have more projects with them in the future when new funds become available because they DO IT ALL!

Chun-Fa helped us design our next kitchen. He listened to our ideas and help translate them into a design that reflected what was most important to us. Plans and drawings were very detailed and he helped us withe some baseline pricing at manufacturers and gave us a good education on how to proceed. A good experience all around.

We hired Eliza and Edison to do a color consultation on our new home purchase. the home was built in 1994, and still sporting a lot of the original builder grade paint. The home had a cold and bland feel. Amy and Brian showed with a huge color selection and helped us pick colors to warm the house, to include all 4 bedrooms, office, family room, and kitchen. Their rate was very fare for the amount of time they spent with us. They were very patient as we changed our minds a couple times in the middle of the consult. On top of it all, they made the appointment the same day we contacted them, and the appointment was only a few hours after our initial contact! We definitely recommend them!

The True House Design team was amazing! I had a vacant condo and wanted to sell it. They met with me prior to the tenants moving out and recommended what fixes and painting to get done and what furniture to bring in after they moved out. When my tenants moved out the staging and preparation was doing very quickly and looked amazing! My condo sold quickly and for the highest price ever in the building!

My husband and I bought our first house in early spring of 2017. We spent four years saving for a down payment, living in an aging, low-cost apartment complex with little frills. We had 30-year-old furnishings that relatives had gifted us back when we went off to college, so we were excited to toss the old furniture and start with a fresh slate for our new place. The home-buying process was stressful enough and when I began looking to decorate our new home, I quickly became overwhelmed. Here I'd never cared much about designing or decorating because I didn't own our place, so I'd never really spent time looking into home décor or fixtures. There were just so many options out there. We decided we needed some help, so we hired BB Designs and worked with Brook. She took the reigns and educated us on basics of design. She first set up a consultation to get to know us and our personalities. She did an amazing job pulling together curated selections for our living room, dining room, and kitchen. And, she nailed it! I loved everything she recommended. Having three well-selected options instead of surfing the internet through 300 options saved us time and quelled the stress. She also suggested staining our hardwood floors from a blond to a more modern coffee-type color and the are exquisite. We updated the railings and fire places, too, giving our home traditional mid-century home a more update urban chic look!

In March, I hired Collene of Exclusive Creations Design to decorate my office space and training center. I had a special event that I was hosting and had to have the work completed in just under 1 week. She used a few existing pieces that I already had and I gave her carte blanche for the rest. The outcome was phenomenal! I left her with a blank space and when I walked in to the finished product, I felt like I was on a decorating show! I constantly receive complements about the choice of colors and the furnishings. Several months later I enlisted her services again for another studio space and again- it turned out wonderfully. I highly recommend Collene. She does a fantastic job meeting your needs with your budget to create your dream space!

Signature Design Interiors staged my home in One Loudoun and did an amazing job! They brought in furnishings, art, area rugs, linens, and accessories to highlight my home's best features. The turnaround time between requesting their help and the completed project was just a couple of days. I highly recommend the team at Signature Design Interiors for staging as well as decorating and remodeling. They are top notch!

Collene was fantastic to work with. I was selling my condo on my own, and Collene took on this staging assignment at the very last minute. She spent a good amount of time with me initially talking through how the rooms would be set up and showed me pictures of other places she had staged. When we received feedback from a few potential buyers that the living space was awkward (which I knew from living there!), Collene made a few switches. She also made herself available to be at our open house. Collene was communicative and professional and so easy 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.
