We recently bought a 2,000 sq ft condo and Staging 2 Sell It was one of few who were interested in giving is a quote for the full paint job, plus all trim and the kitchen cabinets. Debra and Alushia were prompt and were giving free advice during the consultation. We decided to go with them and we are definitely happy with that decision. Whenever there was something to discuss Debra was all over it. She was always accessible. Both Debra and Alushia are great to ask about design, coordination, and staging ideas. The project was just finished this week and we couldn't be any happier with them and their work!

Steve and his team painted the entire first floor of our house - kitchen cabinets, walls and trim. It was a huge job and it took a bit longer than anticipated, but Steve was dedicated and a hard worker. He cared about making us happy. Steve was very reasonably priced and we are satisfied with the finished job.

Eric built a loft in my storage unit. His design was stronger than expected. This will help use the otherwise wasted space in my 16' tall unit.

I called in David to replace the sprayer in my kitchen sink. He showed up on time and got to work right away. After working on it for a few minutes he informed me that the faucet was not in the greatest of conditions. he offered to go to Lowe's with me to find the correct replacement. We got one and he stayed late to finish the job. The job was supposed to take 15 - 20 minutes, but David, being a true professional, stayed back for as long as it took to get the job done. I am very happy with his work and look forward to having him do more in the future.

She was very helpful for what I wanted her to do. I simply needed some advice on placement of furniture and questions about types of flooring for living room, kitchen and laundry hall room. So not a big job but she had very good ideas that I hadn't thought about and was just super nice to work with. I didn't want someone who was pushy suggesting their contractors and etc. as I already had those lined up so her advice was right on.

        I LOVE Lindsay Trabing Designs!!!!! Lindsay has created the most amazing and beautiful home for me and my husband, perfectly reflecting our style....only so much better than we could have done on our own! Lindsay designed every room in our house, turning it into a home that is gorgeous, comfortable, and functional. No detail was too small or overlooked. Lindsay helped with the large pieces of furniture, window treatments, throw pillows and every accessory needed to make each room perfect. We could not be happier with the work that Lindsay did in our home. Not only is Lindsay an extremely talented designer, she is warm, funny and an absolute joy to work with!!

          Project Partner's Design did a wonderful job redecorating my living room. She really took the time to get a feel for my style and what I was looking for for. She was there every step of the process helping me make decisions, even bringing peices to me for me to choose from. Very convenient and great service, and not only do I love my living room, but I get tons of compliments about it! I would highly recommend Megan!!

          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.
