Emily has helped us over the last two years with major renovation projects in our oceanfront home in Kennebunkport, Maine. She helped revise the color palette throughout the house, furnishings for the living room and outdoor seating areas and structural layout and design for the master suite and bathrooms. Emily is a delight to work with and has a wonderful eye for color and design. She understood that we wanted a fresh look to our house but wanted to maintain a family friendly feel on a budget. We are so happy with the work she did, I just wish we could spend more time at our house. I highly recommend her!

Gonna post this: When we moved into our new townhouse in Chicago there was a room on the ground floor that no one had any idea what to do with. It had confounded the former owners so much that they had actually gone on one of those home design shows and had the room set up. The results were atrocious and tacky at best. After considering our options we contacted Paul to have a giant custom bookcase built along 2 of the walls. The result would make the room into a very functional den, meeting space and library. To say we are pleased with the results is an understatement. Not only did the design quality and build exceed our high expectations, it has become a conversation piece for anyone who enters the room. Paul also went above and beyond by indulging my want to have a life goal achieved. He built a few secret compartments and chambers into the book case. This makes it not only beautiful, but one of the coolest things I have ever owned. His attention to detail are crazy, from persevering wood grain lines across cut boards, to outfitting it with outlets and usb chargers in multiple areas. There are too few craftsmen in the world that care about the details as much as I know Paul does. One of a kind.

I am a mess. No, scratch that, I WAS a mess. Jess was able to come in and help me, in a gentle way, get rid of clutter that wasn't serving me and even rearrange furniture to maximize my space. I can't recommend highly enough.

I employed Tracy to decorate my nice living room and asked her to make it an "awesome" living room and Tracy more than delivered! We love her vision and decorating talent so much that we asked her to make our bedroom reflect a bed and breakfast environment, we were not disappointed in her ability to transform our bedroom. Tracy is a talented professional, she stayed in budget, from start to finish was timely and well thought out. So glad we hired Tracy and she excepted our challenge. Will refer Tracy to others.

The services that I hired Classia Home Improvement Services for was to assist me with refinishing my basement and putting all my ideas into greatly excited plan. I would highly recommend Classia to anyone I know because of the one on one attention that I received from the start of my project to the beatiful finished end of my basement remodeling project. I think that Anthony paid great attention to the details in every aspect of my project and at the end, I saved a lot of money. Due to all the options he took his time to explain to me. Thank you Classia Home Improvement Services/Anthony for the new finished basement that just by looking at, i can tell they did with pride for their craft. Timothy Michaels

Nicky and Alane were amazing! So helpful, and made our decision process a breeze. They met me at my house, and helped pick out paint colors based on our home style, the way our house was laid out and our preferences. I never thought I would be able to have all of our house colors picked out in under 2 hours! I would absolutely hire them again for upcoming house projects we have!!

Professional and warm from the first hello, I was impressed with how comfortable I immediately felt with Bunny and Monique-I was nervous about the process but that left immediately as they started to field questions and develop plans and ideas. They were great listeners and wanted input-very clear that it was going to be MY house so they wanted to give me what I wanted. They were on time, meticulous with detail, and easy to accommodate my schedule and time-frame with my contractor. Also, they are both warm and kind women, both with a great sense of humor and and enthusiasm that instills confidence. I already need to call them again.....they'll never see the back of me! And I am looking forward to working with both again soon.

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.
