ISA (Salvo) was a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive to all my emails/calls. When I chose to hire them, they were on time, very clean, and got everything done in a timely manner. They installed a kitchen backsplash and I absolutely love it. I have a few more jobs for their team and will be hiring them in the near near future. The pictures don't do justice on how nice the tile work came out.

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.

Brian completed the assembly and installation of IKEA kitchen cabinets, sink plumbing, faucet, dishwasher, and cabinet lighting. He was very thorough and did an amazing job. He went above and beyond to ensure that our kitchen design was implemented to our specifications. He is an excellent contractor and I would highly recommend him. I would certainly use him again for future remodeling projects. We love our kitchen. Thank You Brian for the great work.

We had Marek demo and install a new kitchen backsplash for us. His wife, Gracie, handles scheduling/communication and does an amazing job. We were on a tight schedule for both the demo and install due to other trades working in our kitchen and Marek/Gracie did an excellent job on communicating and getting the job done right and on time.

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!

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.

Robert was a pleasure to work with. He was very organized, responsive, and professional. His workers were on time, pleasant, and very patient with both our kids and dog throughout our reno. We added two bathrooms, updated another bath, refinished our flooring, installed new windows throughout, removed an existing wall to open up the floor plan, updated the majority of light fixtures, installed a new front door, painted throughout the home, wallpapered, new inner doors and hardware throughout, removed A LOT of wood paneling, and did tile work in the kitchen. Throughout all of this - Robert and his crew were great. Only minor issues came up - one being a stain color for a door that I didn't like and the other was that the flooring wasn't drying as quickly as to be expected. We would definitely use iRenovate again.

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.
