Pat is awesome. I painted the entire interior of my new home but didn't have the resources to reach the high-up corners in my stairway. He got it done quickly and neatly and also helped me with a few other projects around the house while he was there. His prices are very fair and I'll be sure to have him back to help me with other jobs.

Our experience with Mr. James and his team was very pleasant. All of the guys were very knowledgeable and professional. They handled all permits and inspections necessary to complete the project. We noticed an infestation of mold growth in one of our properties. We were already contemplating remodeling this area of the basement anyway. We decided to not only remediate the mold but also to hang new drywall throughout the entire basement, install about 13 recessed lights with smart motion switches, slate tile flooring, and rough in and install a full bath in the space. James came in and offered my husband and I a lot of different options to reach our desired goal beyond the mold remediation. He also did the bathroom design, and suggested some beautiful tile combinations and we loved them all. In short we decided to go with James to do the work and the project went flawless. Very professional, clean within reason during a renovation, and very organized and personable. He kept us informed at every stage and there were no surprises. They completed the project in about10 days including county inspections. James followed up with us a month after the job was completed to make sure that everything ok. Great customer service!! We will definitely be using Unlimited Resources in the near future and have recommended James and his team to several people already.

I am very impressed by Paula’s ability to work in a very personalized manner. She literally reads my mind. Her work captures my identity and perfectly brings forth my vision, style and needs. What I like most is her attitude in any given situation. She is sensitive, open to comments and listens effectively to a client’s needs. Always responsive when feedback is needed, she offers thoughtful, beautiful design ideas for consideration and quickly comes up with new versions or modifications. She conveys a unique international style and will not stop until the client is completely satisfied. Paula is passionate with the enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism to transform any environment. I will not hesitate to engage Paula again and highly recommend her work.

Yosif from Smart House Remodeling installed a shower door that I had purchased from Home Depot. The price was competitive with the other Thumbtack bids, but the deciding factor was that Yosif was willing to do the work on this small project during the weekend. I didn't have to be out from work. It did take a little longer than I expected to get the door installed. But this was because the door's design made it difficult to get the door to hang correctly on the pivot hinges This problem was the door's design rather than Yosif's work. I really appreciate the fact that he worked until he got the door installed correctly. If I ever have other home improvement projects, I would definitely consider using Smart House Remodeling again.

Downtown Home Staging and Drew Foxwell were excellent! This is the second home where he staged and is already under contract. His eye for detail and design made the house more desirable and easier to sell. He brought himself and a crew of people who worked tirelessly until he was content with the positioning and design concepts. The value of his work outweighs the cost, which is extremely affordable. It was great working with Downtown Home Staging and would recommend them over and over again!

I have hired Dawn for the small project. I asked her to redecorate my newly renovated master bedroom. Dawn was challenged to refresh the look to the room using our existing furniture and wall color that was already painted. Dawn came out with a plan that we liked at the first sight. She proposed a very different window treatment and found a lovely coordinating bedding set. She picked up new night lamps and helped to find a gorgeous makeup vanity piece. The absolutely unique area rug that Dawn found for us was a key element that tied all things together. During the project Dawn was easy to contact and did her best to work with our budget and timeframe. We finished up by over passing both but in a reasonable amount. We have appreciated Dawn’s attitude to be responsive, nice and highly professional. My overall experience is great. My bedroom looks like a designer project: gorgeous and cozy. I definitively recommend Dawn for any interior design project.

1. Excellent work in interior flooring design in every which ways...Having 4, in total, of these interesting and yet colorful carpet-tile rugs on the first floor of the house. I really love how neat they make the space look. The carpet-tile material tracks dust and dirt well. A light vacuum returns their pretty look within no time at all. They are both functional as well as pretty. These are unique and one-of-a-kind solution for your floor coverage, and that is what I'd like to have. Chun-Fa's working style is meticulous, thoughtful and efficient for all of my projects. He never drags his feet of delivering a rug design diagram. He listens to my feedback on the proposed design and would alter/adjust the design to my satisfaction. In summary, he is pleasant, considerate and reasonable to deal with. I'd highly recommend Chun-Fa for your design needs. You will be happily surprised on how good and trust-worthy he is!!

Kerry is undeniable the best person I have ever met to help me market and sell my home on a shoestring budget. She listened to my dilemma in detail and offered solutions to market my home in ways that I never thought of in a very inexpensive way that created maximum and dramatic results. She is absolutely amazing. I built my home 17 years ago with the best of materials and workmanship. What I did not realize that designs, colors and materials from just not many years past, "dated" my house and put me at a disadvantage when competing in today's market. Contrary to the advice I have been given from so called experts in the real estate industry, Kerry's concepts and solutions were simple, refreshing, made sense and really cheap compared to what others proposed that offered less impact. Above all else I appreciated her humor, character, honesty, sense of morality and compassion. I would recommend her to anyone needing to sell their home and seeking the best value for the money. She is absolutely an amazing and brilliant person to partner with!!

In March, I hired Collene of Exclusive Creations Design to decorate my office space and training center. I had a special event that I was hosting and had to have the work completed in just under 1 week. She used a few existing pieces that I already had and I gave her carte blanche for the rest. The outcome was phenomenal! I left her with a blank space and when I walked in to the finished product, I felt like I was on a decorating show! I constantly receive complements about the choice of colors and the furnishings. Several months later I enlisted her services again for another studio space and again- it turned out wonderfully. I highly recommend Collene. She does a fantastic job meeting your needs with your budget to create your dream space!

    Andrea and Sonia have a great taste coupled with common sense and a down-to-earth approach to interior design and home staging. All the suggestions they made were sensible and with my goal (and budget) in mind, even the ones I didn't end up implementing. Overall great value for the money.

    Very responsive, prompt, and accommodating with scheduling the initial consultation. Colleen had great samples with her, and was able to take preliminary measurements and provide various product style recommendations and quotes immediately. The installer was also great - the end results are even better than we envisioned. We also felt the pricing and timing to get everything (from initial consultation to final installation) was very reasonable.

    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.
