We hired Stacy and her team to paint the interior of our new home! She did an amazing job working with my wife on paint colors. I really appreciated her team's dedication and precision on completing our project in only 3 days! You have helped to make our first house in North Carolina feel like a home. Stacy's team also stained our screened in porch. We are still working with Stacy on interior decorating of our home, can't wait to see what she has in store! I would highly recommend Stacy and her team for your next project! Thank you!

Daniel came to help us with some interior painting in an office that we were renting - he did a great job covering up some logos we had painted on the wall. He was very professional, on time, completed the job, and left the office very clean. I would recommend him for any work you need done. In addition, we will be hiring him for some work we need done on our personal residence.

Christy has an excellent eye for color and texture and creates a room that flows beautifully by working complementary pieces together. She has the ability to work lower priced products in with some higher end products to give the room an upscale feel from top to bottom without breaking the bank. She can work with various styles and tastes to create a model home feel. Every room I have seen of hers is nothing short of gorgeous! I have worked with her on small projects in the past from color selections to simple accent pieces, and on full room makeovers (a steal bargain) and remodeling advice. She has great trade contacts saving me a great deal on furniture which more than covered her design fee. Without question, I would recommend her for your interior design project needs!

I recently sold my home and hired TEW Design Studio to stage it for the listing. It sold in a little over a month! I am building again and have already contracted Kim and Rima from TEW to complete all of the interior design specifics from cabinet design to lighting and furniture selections. They are efficient, friendly, and have a great sense of style. What an awesome team!!

    I have walked into many places that have had an interior designer's touch. Walking through my hurricane of a space after being graced by A Touch Of Elegance has transformed my world, my mind and soul. I could not believe that such organization was possible and with a flare of style and beauty. Two thumbs way up for Mr. Cherry. His professionalism and charm warms the heart to experience and shows through his work. To success and well being! Jemire Kemile Mancel Dyer

    I was staging a house to sell. Professional Home Staging & Design came in and did the rooms I wanted staged. Everything went very well. They were friendly and flexible since I still had a few contractors working on the house as well. The home looked great when they left.

She worked efficiently, accommodating our busy schedules while being cost conscious and mindful of our budget. We look forward to working with Ann on future projects and would highly recommend her – she is truly Top Notch!

    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.

    Emily recently did a remarkable job on my home entranceway. She changed the flow of the area, chose new colors, and rearranged furniture. The new design completely updated the room and made the entrance so welcoming!

    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.
