Great job executing on our kitchen backsplash design , professional and made sure they cleaned up after they left . They also went out of their way to help me remove a baseboard for another DIY project I was working on. Will use them in the future for other interior projects.

Ron has done many home improvements for me over the years and has helped to make my home look great! He has done everything from electrical (changing all my lighting in my house and one of them was from a 2 story entry way Yikes!), plumbing ( new kitchen sink, garbage disposal and sump pump) to adding crown molding and glass to my kitchen cabinets and now they look custom. He is friendly, prompt, very fair pricing, very knowledgable in all home improvements and best of all he is a perfectionist. He will not leave the job until it is perfect and the customer is very happy. He did new tile in my mom's kitchen and now she loves him too! I've delt with many contractors over the years and really Ron is the best.

Andrei removed a linoleum floor and installed a tile floor in my kitchen. Andrei does very good work. He was honest with his estimate and the entire process of the project. He communicates very well and makes sure there is no surprises in the end. I would recommend his work to anyone.

It was a true pleasure to work with Marek and Gracie during our kitchen remodel. Marek is undeniably hardworking and courteous. He completed the kitchen remodel in 6 days and even came back another day to tweet a couple minor details. The kitchen is beautiful. His workmanship is superb. I would highly recommend him to anyone !!!

WOW....I don't know what other way to describe my experience with Master Craft & Design! Eddie and his team did an amazing job turning an unfinished part of our basement into an amazing guest bedroom. He worked with us on selecting the best flooring, colors and design for the room. He also custom built our master bedroom closet and hallway closet, transforming them from a standard wire rack closet into custom build wooden shelving and multiple areas for our hanging clothes. We didn't know exactly what we wanted the closets to look like, so he patiently worked with us to create a design that was beyond our wildest dreams. He also transformed our laundry room from a cramped, disorganized space into a beautiful, functional space. For every project, he used top quality materials. He also threw in a couple of fixes on some annoying issues we had with the house (doors not closing right, swapping out some standard light switches for dimmers, etc) free of charge. He finished everything ahead of schedule and never changed our price from the original quote. His team also showed the highest respect for our home by putting down paper and hanging plastic to contain any mess. They even brought our trash cans up from the end of the driveway after trash day! Master Craft & Design have created some lifelong customers in us!

Stephanie is one of the most insightful interior decorators, I have ever met. She has a knack of selecting just the right items that are bold but not outlandish. She brings a distinctive look to every room while maintaining a warm, natural feel that delivers enjoyment in a home or even an office. I am truly amazed at her attention to detail and the completeness she brings to every project.

CP Interiors is extremely creative, responsive and professional! My husband and I used CP Interiors to transform our plain and outdated kitchen into a modern and beautiful room we are proud of! Having never done a project like this before, we were so thankful for CP Interior's experience to lead us through the many major decisions and minor details--from cabinets and floors to paint color and kitchen sinks--and we stayed within our budget! We will definitely call CP Interiors for any and all future projects!

Geoff is great to work with, especially for someone like me who really didn't have much knowledge of what a kitchen and bath remodel involved. He is very hands on, however, his team had a few places where details were missed. I also noted my furniture was not covered during the drywall work, so there was a considerable dust problem which to Geoff's credit, he worked hard to clean up. The kitchen and baths look great, which is the main thing. This would have easily been 5 stars has all the other details been handled without my asking.

I had just gotten a new place and needed to furnish the whole place. Lisa, my designer, really nailed my style and gave me a lot of affordable options. It was a very fun process and didn’t break the bank for me.

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.
