Suzanne is excellent. Great eye for color and attention to detail. She designed a new color pallet for painting the entire interior and exterior of my house, then selected flooring, granite, and bathroom vanities. Its a whole new house.

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.

Lisa Reedy met with me to discuss color selections for my kitchen island. She helped me to pick the perfect shade of blue! I never realized how different a color sample could look when seen in different lighting. She brought several, beautiful samples and placed them in various areas of the island so I could actually see how the color would look different because of how the light hit it. By doing this, I was able to pick a great shade of blue that perfectly complements my open kitchen! I look forward to working with Lisa in the future should I need additional help with interior design in my home. I highly recommend Lisa and Living Solutions!

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 had the pleasure of working with Kimberly as the Design Manager for a home builder in the Raleigh area. She is poised, professional and has a keen eye for design. She is not afraid to be unique and bold in her approach. I am excited to see what the future holds for her and Vibrant Studios and wish her much success. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

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!!

We were absolutely thrilled with the results of working with Ann and Tesserae Interiors! She took the time to understand our needs and how our family functions, incorporating our wants into an intelligent, sophisticated design. Ann was able to work with our ideas, adding her own creative thoughts and suggestions, melding styles with new and existing product. 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!

Reversible Renovations built a wheelchair accessible bathroom and remodeled an adjacent room to make a bedroom for my husband, who has a traumatic brain injury and uses a wheelchair. Richard worked closely with my husband's physiotherapists to design the project. Richard also provided a very detailed quote for the job. Heather, the designer, worked closely with me to choose the tile, fixtures, cabinetry etc. A custom sink was designed to accommodate the wheelchair but it also looks beautiful. A terriffic site manager did a lot of the carpentry and coordinated the other trades workers. The quality of the work was top notch, the project came in slightly below the estimate, and was done before expected. An added plus was the way each of the workers cleaned up after themselves and took pride in quality work. They were willing to make changes as they worked on the project to accommodate issues that came up, like an existing doorway that was too narrow. I can't wait to have them back to redesign my kitchen to accommodate to my husband's needs once he reaches his highest recovery point.

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.
