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.

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.

I was moving from SF to Chicago but had to stay in California until a few days before I started my new job to finish things off for work. With that said, I had absolutely no time to fly to Chicago and get pieces of furniture set as well as having to fix and install them (not very handy whatsoever) and I just wanted to get to my new apartment and have everything completed and done for me. And then came Nichole. I told her my situation and that i would not be moving into Chicago until a week before I started my new job and just needed someone to do the logistics and operations of my room and we would have to communicate everything through text and emails. She literally made all the difference in the world without having to worry one bit of how I was going to get things done. She gave me room design templates, colors, furniture pieces, art work, and she designed it especially for the type of style I personally like and wanted. I just landed in Chicago yesterday and the room looked amazing. She than said that there was a piece missing in one of the accent chairs that she reordered and she came the next day to fix it. P.S I also realized that I wanted a bigger bed and she was so kind to just say "let me know when it gets here and I'll take care of it," because I know I don't how do that myself. Anyways, if I could give her 6 stars I would. For the price she is offering and the amount of hours she spent on my room as well as the hours we communicated back and forth to set up my room the way I wanted, she was worth every penny and more! Thank you Nichole - I will see you again when I purchase a home in the future. You know who I'll be calling

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.

Lidia is great to work with. She has done the majority of decorating and furniture suggestions/purchases for Townhouse. The best part is that she was able to get us a great discount on furnishings and decorating pieces. She was able to understand what look I was going for and the colors I liked. She coordinated all of the contractors that I needed for the job and took care of everything else. Even when I couldn’t be home for a job, she was there to direct everything and make sure things went as planned. Throughout each step of the design process, she presented excellent options that were always within our budget. She has excellent sense of color and pattern, and she understands how to design spaces. Each of her subcontractors was outstanding and added to the success of our design. We are looking forward to our next project with her.

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.

Excellent service, upfront and honest off the bat. We were looking for an interior designer to really alleviate the hassle of moving into a new home. We were low on time and wanted someone who would manage a project from start to finish. David's offer was to do a free consultation in home with a full walk through free of charge, and his website laid out how the entire process will work so it was 100% up front. From a project managers perspective, that's perfect. We are looking forward to working with David on creating our home and will leave a post review of how things went. Expecting things to go really well.

Absolutely amazing! I had just moved into my new apartment and had things cluttered everywhere. She spent three hours with me and it was honestly the best thing I'd ever done. She tackled my kitchen, my closet, and even helped out with my living room and my junk room! She also helped me with hanging photos. I honestly need to have her back again now that I have had time to assess and spend a few more house shopping and finalizing the arrangement of my new place. I hope to work with her again soon and I highly recommend the service. Professional, prompt, excellent organizer!

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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
