I needed a company to go and replace a tile for one of my customers. After the work was completed, my customer informed me that this company did a wonderful job and that they were so pleased with the work they were hiring the company to redo the tile in their bathroom. Making sure my customers are taken care of is something I pride myself in and knowing that they were in good hands with this company made the whole situation a lot less stressful. Thank you Doerner Family Construction!!!

I retained Suzanne to design a luxe master bedroom, a sunroom and living room in my 3800 sq. ft. home at Lake Norman. She honed right in on my personality & tastes, integrating my eclectic, modern style & specific personal needs, actually exceededing my expectations ! Her natural gift for color, selecting unusual textiles and balance is amazing and will not disappoint. I am a stickler for details and good communication. Suzanne personally oversaw the project to delivery and within budget. She even designed a statement piece using my late father's European watch collection which is unique. She is not afraid to rake risks but not at a client's expense. I love the outcome, have gotten many compliments and highly recommend Suzanne Starnes Designworks.

3D Remodeling did an outstanding job on the repairs at my home. I had accumulated a list of Things to Do and I needed assistance. The list included repairs to a double wooden gate that was a small project on its own, replacing boards and installing new hinges. They also replaced a new kitchen light, replaced the wall lights outside the garage and on the front porch. In just a few hours they had completed my list of things that I had wanted done for months. I am very happy with the work and would recommend 3D Remodeling to anyone who needs a project completed and wants a dependable, professional job done. 3D Remodeling will be the first call I make for any home repair projects.

Outstanding work done by LBH Creative Designs. Was always prompt and courteous and communicated well with his ideas on how to get the jobs done in a professional and efficient manner. Replaced some missing roof shingles. Modified crawl space opening by adding two courses of brick and building a new crawl space door. Dug out a drainage trench at the crawl space opening to help keep water from entering crawl space. Partial replacement of utility room walls.

Working with Jeanine from Artageous is not only a professional experience but personal as well. She’s extremely upbeat & knows her stuff. She did a gorgeous tray ceiling & faux paint in my bathroom that I enjoyed for years but it also helped sell my home . We just recently moved & I’ll be using her again & again. Thank you Jeanine for your amazing talent !

I really liked Mike's help and advice in designing a contemporary interior. My relationship was somewhat different than most clients, because I wanted to make all selections of furniture or interior design. Then I would pass possibly several dozen specific choices to Mike for his Yea or Nay. I really liked his willingness to work with me this way. He definitely saved me from spending money on some furniture items which really was not right for the look I was trying to create. And he got me discounts on some items due to his professional qualifications. I am grateful.

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.
