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.

This was my second project working with Michele from Moving Made EZ and the end results of job far exceeded anything I could have ever imagined!!!! Michele helped me renovate our first restaurant location, and we are constantly getting comment about how beautiful the atmosphere is from our customers. This second location was definitely a challenge. The interior resembled something out of a 1959 cowboy movie. It hadn't been cleaned in what looked like 20 years. It was quite an undertaking, and I was overwhelmed. I called Michele and she immediately met me onsite. After discussing our goal to bring this restaurant back to life, our 7 month journey together was not an easy one. Starting with complete painting of interior and exterior surfaces, Michele's expertise of paint color was on point. Beautiful tones of gold and greys permeate throughout, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. We reupholstered all the booths with beautiful fabrics that Michelle tirelessly shopped for, making sure we had the perfect durable material that would uphold in a very busy restaurant. Her floor recommendation was perfect, a black hardwood commercial product that absorbs noise in keeping a quieter, more enjoyable atmosphere for dining guests. We added light sconces, chandeliers and other fixtures to brighten up the whole restaurant, which she found on the internet at an amazing price, along with many other items, way too many to mention on this review. Her recommendation for window treatments were perfect, and her choice of decorative pictures for our bar area were wonderful. She created a beautiful focal point in the main dining room with a magnificent faux stone wall the she recommended, along with a recessed electric fireplace in the center of the wall. It is just gorgeous. Our biggest challenge was how to decorate our newly constructed bar. Her first recommendation came up very expensive and over budget, but after many hours of brainstorming, she came up with a brilliant and affordable solution. We painted together, shopped together, and she listened to my ideas which is one reason why I really enjoy working with Michele. Her attention to detail is one that makes her really stand out, and it is the smallest details that can make the biggest difference in a designing project. The end result, as I earlier stated, is one that leaves our customers in shock as they enter our new restaurant and remember the previous location. It is with sincere appreciation that I have for Michele that I would recommend her for any designing project you have, whether a business, a home, a vacation spot, a store front or any other project you encounter.

I have never worked with an interior designer before so I had no clue what to expect or if I could even afford one. I was looking for ideas for a floor plan for my bathroom reno. Lidia came to my house and explained the process in detail. For $500.00 she and her assistant came in and took measurements of my bathroom. From there she came up with 4 different floor plans. After I chose the one I liked the best,she gave me permit drawings for the town. Lidea then contacted me and we went shopping for tile ideas. There were a couple of floor tiles that she picked out that I wasn't really fond of until she coordinated it with an accent tile. WOW! I fell in love with it. She definitely has a talent with design. I would recommend her services to anyone.

Her personality, tireless worth ethic, eye for detail, wonderful sense of taste, and her commitment to complete the project that matches your vision to the highest of expectations are all core values of both her personal and professional principles.

We hired Juliana, owner of Creative Interiors, on the recommendation from a person that we worked with. This person contracted with Juliana to redecorate the bedroom and living room in their home. They were thrilled with the results, and commented that Juliana did an exceptionally great job. When we renovated our home, Juliana and I went shopping for fabrics for new drapes for the house; new bed comforters; and fabrics for sofas and chairs that we wanted recovered. She is a wealth of information about decorating, and she brought us to shops that we would not have been familiar with without Juliana's help. We also went to an art gallery with her, and we bought a couple of prints and had them framed. Juliana was amazing with the help she gave us choosing frames that looked the best with the prints we chose. She put 100% into helping us redecorate our house. She came to our house and helped us hang the framed prints , explaining the lighting in the rooms and the pros and cons of putting the prints on certain walls. The results were beautiful because of Juliana. Another thing that we really appreciated about her is that she taught us so much about decorating. She explained everything to us as we shopped. No matter how many questions we had, Juliana always had the answers. Juliana is a kind and caring person. She is very easy to work with. She has unending amounts of patience, and accommodated all of our needs. Juliana never cancelled an appointment with us, she was always on time, and her help was invaluable. The characteristic in Juliana that we appreciate so much is her honesty. She never tried to persuade us to purchase anything we did not like. She insisted that we make the final decisions on all purchases. Juliana's words to us were: "At the end of the day, you live in the house and you have to be happy with it." We were happy when it was completed and we still are grateful that we met and worked with Creative Interiors.

I had the pleasure of working with Melanie on my residence (condo) and multiple 3 family buildings we converted to condo's. I was impressed with her vision and very pleased with the final results. Having worked with Interior Designer's before I realized Melanie was a great fit during our first meeting. The finished product was amazing and the feedback we got from realtors and prospects was even better. It really helped our properties standout from the rest. It also helped us get top dollar for our properties. I highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again soon on my next project.

As a busy professional in the healthcare field, it was imperative that I had an interior designer who not only made me feel at ease, but also guided me through the entire process. Jen Furtado was both enthusiastic and professional in aiding me with ideas for my son’s room. She took initiative and walked me through this process.. I simply described to Jen what I was looking for and was amazed and grateful at how attentive she was to what I wanted. The process was altogether seamless. Thank you to Jen Furtado and for making my first time renovating an enlightening experience. She truly is top notch and surpassed any of my expectations. I highly recommend Jen, she will tailor her services to meet each and every one of your needs, most significantly, working with professionals in a busy industry who need to attend to not only their careers, but all of the day to day life demands while in pursuit of making their perfect place a home.

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 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 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.
