George Bailey is the consummate professional. His first priority is the safety, integrity, and appropriate ratification on any structural project in his ownership. Because of this, he is not afraid to step-up or challenge outside theories that may not suit the end result best, as he knows it to be. The quality and value of his architectural services are quickly recognized from initial collaboration, and only enhance the total package he brings to each and every project. His timeliness is refreshing as well, and the standard of his drawings never depict any shortcuts or rushed production. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Mr. Bailey on various projects, and hope to utilize his veteran experience in the future. From start to finish, the 'Bailey Built' product is a total win, and a true representation of what the industry standard should adhere and aspire to.

Slavica was amazing to work with and I would highly recommend her for your interior design needs. She has excellent taste and her vision is superb! She helped us to transform our living room into a family friendly den and I couldn't be happier with her ideas and suggestions. She gave several options for price points and really incorporated my needs into the design. She is friendly and easy to work with. Looking forward to working with her again in the future!

Arqavan did a great job on coordinating all aspects of Persian Community New Year Event at The University of Akron from table setting decoration to activity and catering arrangement. She's a fabulous creative designer who has such a good taste in picking the right objects with the right color in her design even with a limited budget. She's really responsible and reliable in her career as an event planner. Being passionate about what she is doing, Arqavan is a great coordinator who has wonderful talents as well.

Scott created a plan for our an addition to our home. We went through various designs as we weren't 100% sure on what we wanted. Scott offered many creative ideas and ultimately gave us a plan we didn't think of but absolutely loved.

What a great experience and so much fun. Leen was fantastic to work with, the way she coordinated the colors, textures and the furniture together for the look and feel we desired was spot on. Our Master Bedroom looked better than we could have imagined. She found ways to help us reduce the cost of the project by picking out the key pieces we needed to complete the room without compromising the coastal theme we desired. In the end it looks fantastic and was within budget. We look forward to working with her again on future projects.

About

I do interior design from a few rooms to turnkey residential and commercial contract projects, for example, senior apartment public areas to private and model units, apartment complexes, builder model homes, funeral homes, and assisted-living residential projects. Furniture styles are all from modern/contemporary open floor plans to traditional and transitional, for example, a mix of traditional and contemporary or antique furnishings, window, wall floor treatments, collectible art and accessories.

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.
