Mischelle's help, with both color and design, was just what we needed to put the perfect finishing touch on our home renovation. She helped us find colors we love, and her design recommendations created a clean, calm, modern, elegant space that we love living in!

We hired Rose Construction to completely replace the defective Weyerhaeuser hardboard siding and most of the trim on out house with pre-painted color plus Hardie product. We also had a new Milguard window installed which entailed cutting a hole in the side of the house and installing new framing around the window. The two man crew did a good job and I am confident that the job was done to James Hardie installation standards, which is important to me. We also had the house color changed and existing trim, gutters, and downspouts repainted. The siding crew was scheduled to do the painting themselves, but after I asked for more attention to the painting detail, my project manager brought in a separate dedicated paint crew to do the painting to my satisfaction. Thanks.

I was putting my house up for sale and hired Diane to stage my house using my furniture. She rearranged my furniture, added decor, and added a few pieces of furniture of her own. Her eye for color and furniture grouping gave my home a polished look for the pictures. I rented her furniture and decor while my home was on the market so it would continue to match the pictures. Her furniture rental fee was more than reasonable. The house sold in a month. I would definitely recommend her for home staging, and for interior design.

Tina staged our new construction townhomes prior to open house. We had 5 units available. At open house not only did we receive lots of complements on the decor but we placed 2 of the 5 units under contract !! She came out quickly and townhomes were staged within a week. Her communication between seller and agent spoke for itself. Looking forward to more projects together

There are not enough good things I can say about AJM and Anicka!! I had the pleasure of working with AJM on the construction side and the room decor and design side. The thing I enjoyed the most was that she was a woman!!! Not just a woman but a very knowledgeable professional. I was amazed by her expertise in the field of construction. Her fresh perspective and keen sense of design and spacial planning was top notch. I felt completely comfortable that every list detail I desired and wanted would be accomplished within budget. AJM over exceeded my expectations and turned my concept into something I never envisioned. I am glad to have had the pleasure to work with such a creative professional. She invested the time to get to know me personally and how she could help bring every facet of my project to life within a reasonable price point. You won't be disappointed in the service!!! I can't wait for my next big project to work with the AJM team!! Delia K

I was very happy with the outcome of the redesign of my breakfast room and bathroom. Amber has excellent design skills and is adept at balancing pushing you out of your comfort zone while listening to your needs and desires as well. Her project management skills ensured I was kept up to date on status of all the moving parts involved in my redesign. She also efficiently handled any issues post arrivals/installs. In addition to bringing fresh ideas to the table, Amber was a delight to work with!

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.
