Within a week of Sandy and Jeff coming to my house to see what I wanted to have repaired/replaced, they were back with workers to get the job done. The back inside and storm doors were replaced--they found rotted wood when they removed the old doors and fixed that area; they replaced the kitchen ceiling tiles, replaced a coat closet bi-fold door. I am very impressed with the promptness of their response, their completion of the job and very satisfied with their professionalism and how well the job was done. I plan to continue using SRO, Inc. for other repairs and work I need done in my home.

She listens to me when I tell her my vision for a room and turns it into reality. Terry's quality control of the products she orders is upheld to the highest standards. Lastly, Terry has integrity that will in no way be compromised.

These guys are real pros. They've done an excellent job remodeling my bathroom, hall and living room. Have hired them now to gut my bedroom and rebuild and same for my kitchen. We did a barnwood feature wall and their cuts were precise. It came out beautiful. Tile job in bath was excellent. Plus, they are just really nice guys. They show up when they are supposed to be there; they clean up after themselves. (We are living there through the remodel.). I am very happy with their work.

I am so pleased with the advice that I received from Wendy from WendMillDesigns! She helped me see my home in a new light. The staging suggestions that Wendy provided were right on point, and the effect was amazing. I am so glad that our realtor recommended her!

Lyle is a skilled carpenter and all around home repair expert. Lyle replaced two exterior doors, insulated my attic, repaired plaster walls, installed a beautiful tile entranceway, added electric outlets in my basement, and more. I was really confident in Lyle's advice and recommendations and extremely pleased with the quality of his work and his price. Lyle made it easy to get lots of things accomplished. I highly recommend Lyle for any carpentry and home repairs. Jane Monahan

    After purchasing our first townhome we were in desperate need of a kitchen remodel. The space was small, dated and the kitchen was completely closed off from the rest of the house. We worked with April who drew up creative, functional and AFFORDABLE solutions for our small space. She is thorough, and a pleasure to work with. Most of the time, I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted or needed, and she was endlessly patient guiding us through the design process. April was able to match my style and pick out all the colors/styles/textures to keep the now open spaces connected and coherent. I never felt intimidated or uncomfortable asking for more help or changing my mind on a design element. She was especially adept at making it all work with in our budget (even going so far as to find coupons for our paint!). She was also a godsend when it came to choosing and working with the contractor and kitchen cabinet/quartz suppliers. Our contractor was a little challenging to communicate with, but she was able to stay on top of all of it and organize the installs and construction work. I don’t think we would have survived the project and the thousands of little details without her. I would highly recommend April Bliss Interiors to anyone looking to refresh and update their homes. I look forward to working with her again as we continue to improve our home.

    My experience with Rayona was wonderful! She helped with with the blinds on my family room windows. She listened to and heard exactly what I was looking for, brought me the perfect samples (perfect for me because I get so overwhelmed and end of giving up) and I was able to choose one. She came along with her installer to supervise the installation and they look beautiful! Quick, easy and efficient!

    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.
