Dealing with Marco was a dream. We hired his team to deal with a terrible peeling lead paint problem on the exterior of our 1920s home. Marco was professional and knowledgeable from the moment he arrived to look at the job and was proactive in pointing out things that needed to be done. He gave us a very competitive price and the team worked quickly and efficiently to remove the old paint, fix rotted trim, replace gutters and repaint the whole house. Marco recommended powerwashing the deck and garage while we were at it and I'm so glad we did. The crew was professional and cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. No qualms about touching up anything that we pointed out. The house looks 50 years younger and after dealing with inside renovations over several years I can say its hard to find a contractor like Marco who shows up when they say they will and does what they promise. I wish I had more things to paint - I would hire this company again in a heartbeat.

J Oliveira Design Build is one of the best I have ever worked with. I hired them to paint most a condo that I bought, and they did such an amazing job. Fernando is punctual, kind, affordable, and most importantly, a talented and meticulous painter. The condo looks flawless. Fernando went above and beyond to make sure that everything looked perfect and even installed light fixtures and a bathroom cabinet. He also cleaned the condo as well and did a spectacular job. The condo looks fantastic and if I ever need painting or handyman work completed again, he is the only person I will call. I highly recommend J Oliveira Design Build to anybody looking for their home or business to be painted and/or cleaned.

Ralph was great. He painted the room which was my original request. In addition to painting he was able to connect my new dishwasher and change out one interior and two exterior light fixtures for me. His pricing was very competitive. He completed the work according to our agreement and cleaned up when finished. I would definitely recommend him.

January 27, 2015 Heidi helped us with designing and decorating my living room area and the upstairs wall space. This project encompassed purchasing products and furniture, supervising the installation, and making the finishing touches. Heidi is incredibly talented at ‘pulling the space together’ and executing on the home owners’ vision. She is incredibly thorough and creative- we had several art pieces that did not fit in standard frames and custom frames would have taken too long and expensive. She created borders with different color to create a dual border frames and the art and photos look amazing. Another thing that impressed me about Heidi is her ability to recommend various items at different price points and recommending where I should spend a little extra for quality vs. where I don’t have. The finished living room area and the walls look amazing and we highly recommend Heidi. We will definitely be making personal recommendations to our friends and family if and when they need this type of service. Kristie F.

Five stars for sure!! She did an incredible job at a very fair price!! So happy with how the house looks. We had a vacant house and all of the furniture and decor that she added go perfectly. We had one small mix up which she offered to fix the very next day at no additional cost. Really happy with the service and I will be recommending her company to our real estate agent for sure!!

Hannah has helped me redesign almost my entire house. She helped me with a guest room a couple years ago, and has helped me carry that craftsman style throughout the entire home. She’s very good about matching a particular style while still staying in a reasonable budget. She’s also very easy to work with and share ideas with. I’d highly recommend her.

Julianna is fun to work with. Understands our needs , very patient and professional at the same time . I love the way things are shaping up with her design and suggestions for our home. She always finds a connection with our choice and ties the whole thing aesthetically right at the same time . And I trust her judgement . Her high end product choices and designs at budget friendly costs is a huge bonus!! I will recommend her work to as many as I can. Last but not the least , she is such a joy and fun to work with !!

I have to say, I have always desperately wanted to work with a designer but assumed that it was out of my budget. Then I found Christina. I learned very quickly that she was receptive to making any budget work. Not only did she work one room, she actually evolved three rooms in my house with the purchase of only a few items. What struck me the most was her creativity. She opened my eyes to seeing the space so differently. She gave me options moving forward, she suggested flow into other rooms, she grabbed items from here and pieces from there and put together a space that was completely revitalized! I had no idea that a few small changes could refresh the entire feeling of a house! If you’re looking for consistency, if you’re looking for reliability - more importantly, if you are looking for upscale creativity, Christina is who you’ve been needing in your life and you didn’t even know it!! Make this call. You won’t regret it.

Sarah has an amazing gift. We hired her several months ago, to guide us through a complete overhaul of our entire house, one room at a time. Initially, we had several designers come up with a concept so we could choose the best one, and hands-down, we chose Sarah because had the best design concept. After asking us questions, she was able to clearly articulate what it was that we wanted and the overall look we were going for. Working with her has been extremely easy. She communicates well, is thorough, detailed oriented, and overall has exceeded all of our expectations.

Jon was incredibly helpful, professional and skilled through out the two projects I needed done. In both the bathroom and kitchen remodel we needed to work together to lay out and design exactly what my wife and I wanted. He made great suggestions that really made all the difference. We are thrilled with the quality of the finished product! More, we are soo appreciative of his management of the projects. We've heard horor stories about projects gone wrong from friends who had done these kind of disruptive projects ... our experience was the extreme opposit! We couldnt have been more pleased with Jon's follow through at every stage!! I wouldnt hesitate to highly recommend Jon and the Top of the Ladder team to any friends, family or anyone !!

I can't say enough about Maureen and her team! We recently sold our home and MLT Design Group was there for us through the whole process, They made great suggestions about what we needed to do to get our home in the best possible shape to sell it for the best price. They did excellent work and by the time they were finished we didn't want to leave!! They were professional, punctual, and went above and beyond throughout the job. Our 20 year old home looked brand new and when Maureen and her team finished staging it we couldn't believe the transformation. I highly recommend them!

I initially hired Alchemy Designs for window treatments when we moved into our new home. Several years later I called her again when we remodeled our home. She worked within my budget, and offered great decorating ideas. I loved that she told me the reason for her suggestions…I felt as though I was getting a lesson in interior design!

John Maciejowski is the ultimate, talented professional. We recently gutted and remodeled both a master and guest bathroom. John created the look we were going for and the bathrooms came out great. He listened to what we wanted, took us on store and factory tours to pick out the marble, granite, tile, fixtures, vanities and paint colors. Everything fits together so perfectly. We love the outcome. John is very detailed and follows through on everything. You would be wise to pick John for your next remodeling or refurbishing project. We have worked with John 2 other times to refurbish our living room and bedrooms. The furniture, artwork and overall color schemes have always come out first rate!!

    My experience with Schickel Interiors was absolutely amazing. This was my first time working with a professional and I really needed help :). I contacted the team at Schickel to help with my living room and bedroom in my new apartment. The response almost instant when I first contacted them! Hannah did a great job of asking me questions and showing me sample, giving me the options I needed to make sure the rooms fit to my personality and my liking. We made changes and adjustments throughout the process and Hannah was always punctual and respectful - the team is really easy to communicate with. Another note; I had a pretty small timeline to work with and the team really pushed to make my dream a reality in such a small amount of time. I never thought I'd say this but...I can't wait to move again so that Schickel Interiors can design and implement my new space :)

        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.
