Carol did an excellent job staging our single family home. She truly has a keen eye for interior design. When you combine that with her fair pricing, fast turn-around, and professional team, it's hard to imagine a company that can offer the same value as Carol Brody.

Worked with Allison Henry of Fusion Interior Design over the two year renovation of our home. Working full time, it was wonderful to have a talented, professional design partner that stuck to schedules and listened so well. We quickly developed a flexible, efficient working partnership that saved us time but still allowed us to be involved in decision-making. Allison brings a great combination of professional training combined with a fresh take on design. Result - a timeless, comfortable aesthetic that we continue to enjoy. Apart from a minor touch of confusion on billing procedures over the life of the project (efficiently resolved by Allison) , we were thoroughly satisfied with our experience and would not hesitate to call on her again. Allison has a great eye for design and detail, and a delightful personality with which to work.

Hi , Here I want to give a very positive review about Interior designer Roopa :) She designed my family room and also did the whole house color selection for me. Me and my husband are very much impressed about her work. She helped me find very good stuff on Internet and told me about stores which I didn't even heard about. There are still few things which I need to buy and decide about but that is pending from my side. Most important thing I felt about her is she understood my requirements very well and help me find right stuff. I will definitely recommend her for other people and friends. Thanks Roopa.

This was my first project on Thumbtack. I purchased a townhome back in August and new I had to remodel the kitchen. I found three designers, met with them for an in home consultation and choose Andrei Viscrbov from Design from A to V to do my kitchen remodel project. I chose Andrei because on that first meeting, he listened to what I wanted for my kitchen remodel, he understood what I said and was able to tell me how he was going to do it and at what costs. He laid out the budget for the whole project at that first meeting. The project is done now and I am extremely pleased with the job he and his business partners did! We would have been on budget but I added a few new items I decided I needed after that first meeting. The pictures attached don't do full service to all the work that they did but it is a small section of the work he did. My kitchen went from being almost unusable to the kitchen I wanted. Thank you Andrei. My projects scope was - demolish the kitchen - new floor from entry way to kitchen and into the dining room - take down wall between kitchen and dining room - new cabinets and countertops and an island - all new lighting from entry way to kitchen - move plumbing to position sink in a better spot - paint all of the first floor and install new baseboard - new dishwasher, range hood, kitchen sink and faucet with garbage disposal - all in all a big project for me I highly recommend Andrei and the construction team he works with.

I hired Variant to help me with branding and the interior remodel of my coffee shop. It was my first time hiring an interior designer so I wasn't sure what to expect but they were great to work with and the renovation looks beautiful. I could not have asked for a better experience or outcome. I would refer them to anyone looking to renovate their business or home.

Patrick patched 3 areas of stucco on my kitchen ceiling. His work was good, he was through, hung plastic to keep the mess contained and cleaned up when he finished. Job went well and looks good. He also took measurements for additional work we are contemplating, but I have not heard back from him with the estimates. Work was done 3 weeks ago.

We enjoyed working with Luci and Larry on painting the interiors of our first home- a two bedroom, two bath condo. Luci helped us pick fantastic colors and Larry even repaired numerous small jobs that we didn't expect him to do. We had them install a new light fixture that made the kitchen feel brand new! A few weeks later, after we moved in, they sent the painters back to do touch ups so that we could feel completely pleased with our paint job. So much value added with this company!

Our experience with Lauren Marshall Interiors was terrific. We worked with Lauren on the renovation (gut job) of a bathroom in our 100 year old home. Because the size of the bathroom is small, it was important to choose appropriate materials and fixtures that modernized the bathroom without compromising the integrity of an older home. Lauren was able to design the space and work within our budget to achieve those two objectives. She provided great visualizations and walked us through the project. Although she had a vision, she was receptive to my input. She delivered all design specifications on time and within budget. She did not rush me to make decisions and gave me lots of options for materials. Lauren communicated well and often to ensure the project was progressing as planned. Additionally, Lauren was punctual to all meetings both at our home and showrooms. Lauren is a wonderful designer with a terrific eye for detail. I highly recommend Lauren Marshall Interiors for any and all home projects, whether a gut kitchen or bathroom job, or giving a room a fresh new look.

Molly did an amazing job. She was professional and talented. She came out promptly for an estimate and staged my condo within 2 days. I was apprehensive on using a staging service but it really made an impact. The furniture, design and decor gave the unit modern, cozy, live in and warm look. I highly recommend Molly Marino home staging service. She is a great choice!

We needed to stage our house very quickly to move to the West Coast. After we scheduled our consultation. We were sent a detailed list of things and how the project will be managed. Within 5 days our house was decluterred and staged. We needed to have our furniture moved right away so Sophia had all our things organized with movers and had new furniture staged in the house. Our realtor just had to bring a photographer to get our house listed. Everything was done quickly and efficiently. We felt at ease with this stressful move and ended selling our house in 9 days! Thanks to Space mkr’s team Amazon style our house looked like a magazine home! We moved 2 weeks ago in our new house! We liked the design Sophia did at our old home so Much, she will be designing and planning the layout Of our new home. Our family had a positive experience and loved working with a fun and creative team! Thank you again!

Dave arrived on time for the appointment, even though our initial request was to address interior design specifically for our walls and windows, he provided expert advice on other items including design choices and suggested palette to unify all elements while keeping our Family room focused as a room our children may use. I greatly appreciated his ability to work within our budget. We do not have a lot of money for a whole house make over; David proved great design can be affordable and obtainable within a family friendly budget. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and look forward to continuing working with David in the future. Most highly recommended!

I was planning an addition to my home. I had no clue as to how complicated it could be. Between permits, the zoning requirements and not to mention the contractor problems that could have occurred. I was referred to Illusione Design by a friend. He said they did a great job for him and know I know why. Mr. Quintero and his team lead me through the whole project with professional advise and a level of experience and professionalism I have not experienced in a long time. What I now know could have been a really trying situation, went off without a hitch. The plans were done in no time and as far as knowing your way around city hall and all the codes. These guys really blew my mind. So yes. if you're planning any type of project, I think you would be smart to give them a call. I'm sure you will be pleased with the services they provide.

As I stood in the center of giant towers of moving boxes I realized I was going to need a real PRO. My fiance and I had just moved into a much smaller space and I had to figure out how to transform ONE ROOM into a living room, dining area, tool/work area for my fiance and design studio for me... I work from home. I called several places and Bre was the only one who returned my call in a timely manner... great sign! There were several winning things I enjoyed about working with Bre. She had a super positive attitude, was punctual, truly listened, followed with solutions, was ready to put some elbow grease into it. She had useful ideas and tested them to see if they would function. Bre understands space, light, ergonomics, aesthetics... and many more things that transform a great organizer into an AMAZING one. I recommend her to anyone who needs their space to work for them and not the other way around. Treat yourself to the gift that keeps on giving. She saved me a lot of time and frustration. Thank you Bre. You jump-started me into a space I enjoy walking into.

I am building a new home and Dee was extremely helpful in helping me put cabinet colors with the right flooring, even pointing out better options that I had not originally thought of. She knows the difference between tile and porcelain, which I did not! lol So, I learned some things from Dee too. Dee is very professional and very knowledgeable about all aspects of design and building. I would definitely use her again! Monica Nagy

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

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 much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

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.
