My project was a gut renovation two bed, two bath coop apartment. I had a strict $60k budget, ninety-day window and clear idea of what I wanted to do with the space. I interviewed five Interior decorators and I am thankful I followed my intuition to hire Bridgette because she was a joy to work with. She helped me plan the space, source contractors, materials and was my shoulder to cry when I felt the renovation was over whelming. My project was completed on time and most importantly very close to my original projected Budget. Bridgette’s contribution played a pivotal role in my success and I plan to work with her again because her experience, creative insight and now friendship is invaluable.

Maggie made the process of my interior design project go smoothly and she was so much fun to work with. Her "out-of-the-box" aesthetic brought colors, textures and styles together and made my house stand out in a way I didn't think possible. We are so happy with the end result and know we can count on Maggie next time we have a project in our home.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Peta-Gaye and Anjellica on a design-build project to transform a 500 sf. studio into a charming and enchanting 'Dream Playroom' for a client with two lovely little girls. In the role of project manager, I initially brought Peta-Gaye on board as a lighting consultant to provide a lighting design to enhance the space. Not only did they do a fantastic job with the lighting design, they also brought creative interior design ideas to elevate the design that was already in place, ultimately transforming the space into a majestical haven for the girls. They have a keen eye for interiors, and how to bring all of the various design elements together in a cohesive fashion. They also brought a level of professialism to the project that made it a delightful pleasure to work with them. The finish product undoubtedly benefitted from their involvement in the project. Best decision I made.

I hired Holzman Interiors about 17 years ago when I first bought my home in New Canaan, Ct. She designed and furnished it completely with an update to the existing kitchen. It seemed only logical to call her back when we were ready to do a renovation to the kitchen. We came to her showroom which was a big help. There, you could combine all your needed selections under one roof. Julie is a remarkably talented interior designer who is a joy to work with. Her design aesthetic is absolutely superb. She is dedicated, focused, responsive and a great listen and communicator. She is an excellent partner and collaborator in projects of significance and complexity. We wouldn’t recommend or want to work with anyone else!

Hinda's professionalism and creativity really helped my projects along. I always thought that interior designers were meant for large and expensive renovations. Hinda showed me how valuable using a designer can be for smaller projects as well. She saved me hundreds of dollars on upholstery fabric and gave me new perspective on the set up of my living room. Hinda was also very helpful in a bathroom renovation. Highly recommended!

Complete renovation of 2 bedroom apartment. Maureen redesigned configuration of apartment, helped choose the contractor, was the interior designer and project manager. She has the personality and demeanor to be firm without being demanding, to smooth the way, to bring a team together. And she has great design ideas. I would work with her over and over again.

Paula provided interior design services for our family's 3BR 2.5bath condo. We cannot be more pleased with how our place looks now! It is modern, functional, and it feels like there is so much more space. We love it. This was our first major interior design undertaking and Paula was very patient with us. She guided us each step of the way and was flexible around our family's schedule, which was of high important to us. Working with Paula was a wonderful and rewarding experience. We learned a lot during the process and are very thankful for it. We highly recommend Paula for interior design work and look forward to working with her again soon!

Brynne has been my interior designer for five different restaurants over the last decade. From Creole shotgun style to industrial loft to turn of the century auto showroom, Brynne has been able to breath fresh life into buildings that seemed almost hopeless. Brynne is deft at understanding the relationship between the space, the vision that I have for it, the budgetary concerns, and the final product. Without her, many of the most important details that I get compliments on over and over would never have happened. Cityscape wallpaper, vintage lounge furniture, ceiling paint that translates from daylight to night... she has the touch. I highly recommended Brynne, she will be doing more work for me in the future.

Karen is a fantastic interior decorator and real estate stager. She has a fantastic eye for style and design and always makes each space look lovely. Ironically, many of her clients have decided to stay in their spaces after Karen has staged their homes.

Susan Hughes of Modify Interiors is really something special. She de-mystified the entire process and made our home renovation go smoothly from beginning to end. She was a source of inspiration and knew how to get high end results for less than high end prices. Totally down to earth and approachable but with enough know-how to get the results you want and to steer you through the complex matrix of decisions, she's the right woman for the job and I can't recommend her services more highly.

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.
