We recently moved to a new apartment. We didn't have enough room for a TV stand. So we had to mount it. Steve was available to help at an affordable price. He was very professional and came fully equipped. He mounted the 65 inch TV above a wooden fireplace. We are truly grateful for his services and I highly recommend him to first timers like me.

I decided at the last minute to have my empty house staged before a weekend open house. Whitney responded quickly to my request and with just 3 days notice she developed a great design plan and furnished three bedrooms, a small office, two living spaces and kitchen breakfast area. She was very professional, I thought her price was reasonable and I would definitely recommend her for your decorating project.

Nan from Visions Interiors is helping us choose many things for the new house we are building. We live some distance away and Nan has been so helpful in helping us to decide. She has saved us more time than we have paid her. She always answers emails within a day as well as calls and texts. We are not finished yet and we highly recommend Nan.

Shandy was a huge help in providing a second pair of eyes in decorating our living room. We moved into our house in August but had mostly empty walls until she came in January. She helped me style the mantle, pick out curtains and art for our living room. I was so hesitant to get it wrong that I hadn't hung anything. After the weekend, our house felt like a home and I love it! Sometimes it just takes a little help to refine your ideas and give feedback to make your space feel complete. I would definitely work with her again!

    Karen designed, decorated, and painted our nursery for our twins last year! It is the most beautiful room that I have ever seen; everyone who visits our house comments on how amazing it is. Karen also made our twins adorable blankets as a shower gift; they take their blankies everywhere & I am constantly asked where I got them. I love the blankets so much that I recently had Karen make 2 for a couple of my friends who are expecting. She also decorated and painted my office and even hand made curtains to match it. Not only is her work amazing, she is also a delight to work with. She is fast, clean, and a pleasure to work with. She listens carefully to your ideas and desires and turns them into a masterpiece! I highly recommend her for any job big or small!

    Kathy jumped right in and lead the difficult process of selecting furniture for our apartment after our house fire. She took the time to understand our needs and designed a comfortable home, beautiful home away from home. I don't know how I would have done it without her!

    Becky came into our home and listened carefully to our concerns and wishes before lining out an extremely affordable, beautiful and functional plan to address our problems. In a short time she solved our window covering situations and even came and helped install everything. Her follow-up call to see if we had any questions or problems was unexpected, but greatly appreciated. I highly recommend Becky for any decorating needs you might have. Paul

      Lana has an eye for making your home shine. She arrive at my home while it was in a bit of dismay. In a quick jiffy she turned it into a home ready for professional realtor photos. She utilized my own home decor, finding just the perfect placement to showcases our home. I can't wait to have Lana come to my new home and help me make the right choice on wall color, carpet and of course all the furniture and decor placement. Lana is truely a delight to work with.

      I am a talented decorator. I love to use what you have, and allow you to see it in a new way! Being a massage therapist for over nine years, I believe your home should reflect who you are. Your space should be a peaceful, comfortable retreat. I am naturally inclined to an organic flow with decorating. Creative Designs is a business I started 12 years ago with decorative painting and design which allowed me to help many with not only custom paint finishes, but also with helping them decorate with what they already had. Massage has helped me to realize many can be healed when their environment is balanced with things they love not just things they are sold on TV or a magazine. Organic flow is what I call it, as it flows from me easily. My Passion is helping you with healing design! I am Debbie King.

      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.
