We had a clogged drain in the kitchen. The kitchen is in the process of remodeling, so the sink was not there and no water to flush down the drain. I communicated with Jason via text messaging, sending him pictures and voicing my concerns. He answered all my questions very patiently even before arriving for the job. At the job, he was very professional and careful. He cleaned the drain, used the camera to check it, and cleaned up after he was done. He said that he warranties his work and we can call him back if anything goes wrong after the sink is installed. (The sink has not been installed yet, as of today.) We are very satisfied with his service and will be calling him again for future projects.

The Tech from Service Guys arrived at our home early on a Saturday morning, just as we had requested. He explained how he would make the repairs and got to work right away. We were disappointed with the resealing of a sink drain. The finished project looked sloppy and messy. We could have done that ourselves, but we hired a professional thinking he would do a better job than us. The other projects (fixing a broken kitchen drawer, installing a drawer pull, and hanging two kitchen shelves) were done quickly and to our satisfaction. We only wish the resealed drain was cleaner, but otherwise we are glad we hired the Service Guys.

Jonathan just finished installing an IKEA kitchen for me. New base cabinet, wall cabinets, a built in microwave, and countertop. He had to work with difficult sloping walls (brick and terrible dry wall) and it looks fantastic. He even added a backboard to the counter when we asked. Jonathan replied to all my texts and emails quickly. He was very professional and skilled.

I highly recommend Celtic Piping and Heating. Edward got back to me quickly with an online quote while many other plumbers or contractors refuse to provide even a ballpark estimate without seeing the project. (Translation: it's harder to refuse when someone is standing in your apartment ready to work even if the price is outrageous!) Edward called me back within 30 minutes to arrange for a time and arrived promptly... on a Saturday, no less! I had failed to mention that I needed a drain installed in addition to two faucets and that wasn't a problem for him. He clearly knows what he is doing and my kitchen and bathroom now have a much more updated look thanks to his efforts. Edward is a true professional and he clearly takes pride in what he does. He left me with his card in case there were any problems as he guarantees his work. I don't think that I'll be needing it... until I have another project, that is! Terrific!

Greivin is our new go-to handy man. We hired him after a mediocre experience with a different service. We realized we'd rather pay a little more for a much better finished product. That was a good decision! Greivin came to our apartment one day after I reached out. He recaulked our kitchen counters and removed a wall heater that then needed patching and painting. He is quick, meticulous and professional. We saved his cell phone number and plan to call him again the second a new project comes up. His service and finished product are worth every penny! Hire him!

Leonardo is outstanding! He is an artisan with many talents. He did a beautiful job repairing my coffee table and we chatted a bit during the process. I learned he is also a millworker and lighting designer so we're now working on more projects together. He is charming, honest, and fastidious.

I never worked with an interior designer before and I was a little nervous but When I realized how professional and capable she was I started to relax. I love what we did together and the job amazingly stayed within my budget. I really love the way it came out. It feels new,fresh and organized. Arati is very organized, friendly, EXCEPTIONALLY talented, and highly professional. She works very close with you to find the right touch that works for you and understand your needs. Even after finishing all her responsibilities for my condo she stayed available for and responded promptly to any questions I had. I would highly recommend working with her!

Peter was excellent. He came to look at everything I needed and gave me a quote before I hired him. He was on time, courteous, and did a wonderful job. I recently moved into my apartment and he explained everything as he was doing it so I would know in the future. He fixed a pocket door, installed new faucets in the kitchen and bathroom, fixed two other doors, and looked at various other things in the apartment. The bathroom faucet was more complex than we initially thought, so he came back the next morning with some different tools and finished everything up. I would highly recommend him and I will be hiring him again if I need anything done!

I hired Corniel Construction to renovate my kitchen. Waldy and his team were professional and kept me informed at every step. There were some timing issues with the other vendors that extended the length of the project but Waldy was very accommodating in working with the issues. The final product turned out beautiful!

Rick and his guys did a total gut kitchen reno for me. Kitchen came out amazing and exactly for the price we agreed to in the beginning (which was much cheaper than a lot of the other Montclair contractors). His guys were always on time, curteous and very hard working. Rick was also very easy to work with and I highly recommend!! I’ll definitely use him on other projects in the future.

Carlos has done a big project in our house. He changed room layouts (including breaking down walls, putting in support beams), changed the entire flooring, added a new room and remodeled the kitchen BEAUTIFULLY! He sticks to the schedule while explaining every step along the way. Our family is more than happy to have found him!

With a recent move, I needed a lot of help with my townhouse including carpentry, plumbing, light electric, landscaping, installation of large TV and appliances, design and build of a garage gym. Deuel went above and beyond and brought to my attention potential enhancements/improvements I didn’t think of. He took care of all of it and did a great job! I highly recommend him!

I have engaged Angelika in several projects over the years, including kitchen and bathroom design and other small projects. Have always been impressed by her creativeness and flexibility of design ideas. If you have a sense of what you want (or what you don't want), but need someone to bring it to life or find the right look for you (I've had both experiences with her), Angelika is an excellent designer. She won't hesitate to suggest directions you may not have thought of, but will always return to what you want/what works for you. On my kitchen I knew what I wanted structurally and high level look, but was struggling with completing the concept. She blended things that I never thought could have worked together -- until she laid them out for me to see. It has become a centerpiece of the apartment.

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.
