Verified review

Kari Jordan was just what the doctor ordered! I was redoing my bathroom in my loft condo. Panicked with having to make some last minute decisions I hired her. As a background, I have some interior design experience but not enough to feel completely confident in my decisions. She was flexible with me and my need to own this project. She also gave me thoughtful input and she was not afraid to say what she didn't like. She was also able to correct some assumptions I had made which I appreciated. She was really a joy to have a consultation with. I appreciated her input.

Brad did work for me for the second time in December before the holidays and both times it was a great experience. In the summer he did some painting for me that I was very pleased with, and last month he did some interior design that turned out great!! He found beautful furniture for me at a great value. He is very friendly, very fast and prompt, and I really trust his opinion. Highly recommend Brad!!!

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.

Laura designed a furniture plan and decorated my one bedroom garage apartment in Houston. The layout of the space was a challenge to furnish, but she was able to work up a unique furniture plan that I never could have dreamt up. She also sourced interesting, one-of-a-kind pieces to fill the space with, keeping in mind my taste, preferences, and budget. Surprisingly, working remotely and never having physically been to the apartment wasn't an issue at all, and when I had questions or ideas, Laura was always quick to respond and provide feedback. This was my first experience using an interior designer and I highly recommend it. Laura is professional, easy to work with, and truly talented at what she does. I'm very happy with the finished product and will definitely be using Outline Interiors in the future.

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.

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.

Meg recently helped me design a shared boys room on a tight budget, and it is simply adorable! I have been following her blog, Peaches and Cake, for a long time and love her ideas. She helped me every step of the way, from creating an inspiration board to sending detailed links to all items she recommended purchasing on places ranging from Craigslist to Land of Nod. We designed the room completely via long distance - with lots of photo taking. She walked me through each purchase and how it would fit into the overall design of my sons' room. She has great taste and anytime I had a problem or question, she went above and beyond to find solutions to my design issues. She was very timely in all of her communications with me and I would definitely work with her again.

I am happy to write a review for Menorah Painting. A few years ago, my husband and I decided to have the exterior of our house painted. After comparing Menorah with other companies, we selected Menorah. They are reasonably priced and have a fine reputation for high quality work. Menorah Painting did a wonderful job on the exterior of our house in Highland Park. We were extremely pleased with the quality of their work and the tidiness of their workmen. We had them come back and paint our hallway -- a Dutch Colonial -- and entry. Their interior work was also excellent. I highly recommend Menorah Painting.

In & Out Design is really a wonderful company. I worked with Mary from In & Out Design the past couple years on creating a new landscape design for my entire property. The design has turned out so beautiful that I decided to work with Mary on updating the interior of my 1970’s home. She created a design for redecorating my outdated family room, kitchen, living room and dining room. I needed to keep costs to a minimum so Mary suggested we utilize some furnishings and accessories from throughout the house to "redesign" my interior spaces. We then purchased some new accessories and a much needed new sectional for the family room. This method really helped update the entire look of my four rooms while keeping me within my budget. The fee Mary charged was well worth the savings I incurred and I ended up with comfortable, beautiful, and functional spaces that we will enjoy for many years.

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.

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.

I hired Angela from Elegance by Design as my interior designer and it was a great decision. Angela is not only a designer but can be your general contractor or you can use your own contractor and hire her as a designer and she can also project manage your contractor so you aren’t stuck dealing with every detail. She’s very thorough and passionate about design. As a homeowner you’re emotionally tied to certain things or how you think things should be, however she take a holistic design approach and looks at the space you want to design and gives you ideas of what things can look like based on your style and what would appeal to others if you were to ever sell in the future. She’s detailed oriented and a perfectionist. She gave me an idea to cut a piece of drywall in the bathroom that added minimal cost but added much more return to the value of my bathroom having a fireplace which you usually don’t see in homes which I’ll get back if I sell this home. She also helps you pick up material and has saved me money and chosen the right material like lights and tile which I was going to pay a lot more for. Never using a designer I didn’t know what to expect and now having one I know that any remodeling I will do I will use a designer more specifically Angela from Elegance by Design.

If you are searching for a designer, look no further. It took us all of 5 minutes to realize we had found the right person for the job. Erin’s professionalism and organization were head and shoulders above others we met with and once we got into the project, her contacts and experience proved to be second to none. Even when things did not go perfectly with certain vendors, Erin worked tirelessly to find solutions that made everything work out. She is passionate about making sure you love the results of the project and will absolutely deliver the outcome you are looking for. If there were more stars to give in the rating, we would give them.

I call on Aimee regularly to consult and stage my clients home prior to listing. She makes the process fun and has a fabulous eye for design! I also love that she provides a written to-do list after her consultation at the home. My listings have always sold very quickly and for top dollar, after Aimee has worked her magic!

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.
