Kimberly H.

We are so pleased with beautiful craftsmanship of the recently completed remodel of our employee break room. From the moment of my first phone call with Bruce Stasch , I knew we had found the right person and company to complete a very challenging project. He provided a free estimate, and was patient with our questions. He always responded in a timely manner to all calls and emails, which was much appreciated by myself and the management team. There were no surprises with the estimate either. The kitchen back splash tile and granite counter tops are fantastic ! Plus they cleaned up every step of the way- no mess left. We would highly recommend Apex Construction & Tile for a business or a residential remodel project. The professionalism and courtesy demonstrated by Bruce and Jordan was outstanding. Thank you !

Deborah came to my home and walked through the entire layout with me. She really listened to my needs. She then suggested a layout and even furniture types, color and style. Her advice was spot on and inspired me to finally make the changes i knew I needed to but her reiteration of what to change and how easy it would be to do it, really pushed me to do so. I enjoyed working with Deborah and will definitely consult her for my design needs in the future! - Angela

I hired Beth to help design my office space. Because of her experience and expertise, she was able to pick out the perfect paint colors (I'm no good at picking paint colors!) She then helped space plan and had great ideas for my space. She has great connections as well and even put me in touch with a cabinet maker to made a wonderful piece for my office. I'm so pleased with her work. She is always happy and willing to help. Oh, and her style is top notch. She helped find furniture pieces for my office that make it look expensive (even though the pieces were very affordable!) Thanks, Beth!

Jennifer Purcell, Palettes of Color, painted the entire interior of my condo in Loring Park. In addition to doing a quality job, Jennifer used quality paints and supplies to ensure that the smallest details were managed and my furnishing were all protected and respected.

Richard Ward brings a unique set of skills to the interior design world. He is a brilliant landscape painter and has spent many years not only transforming peoples interiors but also working as a display designer, display fabricator, furniture designer, and furniture finisher. He has a keen eye and an ability to listen to the homeowner while still holding strong to his vision. His sense of color is unsurpassed. As an architect, I hired Richard to create a multi paneled landscape mural to conceal an entertainment cabinet over a fireplace. I sent him photographs of a beautiful view of Cape Cod scene that the clients loved and he re-created the scene using some gold leaf and a subtle grid underlay to give the panels the appearance of an antique Japanese screen. It is gorgeous!

First, Julie at Decorating Den Interiors was the only person that Thumbtack matched me with that bothered to contact me. I even sent individual emails to a couple of the other companies with no response. Julie has been super responsive and communicative throughout the time we have been working together, and I appreciate that very much. Julie visited me in my home on a few occasions. She put together a fabulous plan for my space, starting with understanding my overall goals, drilling into my personal tastes, and then presenting me with options that would work. She worked hard to stay within my budget, at times working directly with the suppliers to negotiate adjustments when the pricing didn't make sense. Julie also recommended a local resource to help me with some of the construction details. They answered the phone when I called (bonus!) and because of an expected rain day preventing them from executing scheduled outdoor work, they were at my house the very next morning. Super nice and professional team and I couldn't be more pleased with their work. Everything is on order now, and I can't wait to see my new space come to life over the next couple of months. Thank you, Julie!!!

Shelly met me at my exisiting home to determine style, color and design needs; afterwards we had a second meeting at the model home to determine type of treatments, colors and the immediate needs I will have when I move into my new home. She brought fabric swatches and definitely made numerous recommendations that enhanced my expectations. She has more books and samples that she will be able to look further at to determine for her final presentation and pricing. Very thorough, timely and organized with the ability to listen to what my needs are for this new home.

    Nicole is proffessional, efficient, creative and so much fun to work with. She brings a personal and professional attitude into every project and it makes you feel very at ease throughout a process that is typically stressful and full of large decisions. She has a great insight for working with people who have different personalities and design tastes to create a space that is distinctly your own. She never makes you wait and always responds to you in a very timely manner. Communication is on point, and she delivered 100%. Would and will recommend to all of my friends, family and coworkers.

    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.
