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.

What’s the difference between an interior designer and an interior decorator?

Interior designers operate more on the architectural side of building projects. In conjunction with architects, they work on the design of a building or home to best suit the needs of the users or residents. Interior designers are generally experienced in construction and understand how architectural planning works, according to NewSchool of Architecture & Design. And some interior designers will perform the duties of an interior decorator.

Interior decorators, on the other hand, work with fabrics, accessories, furniture, art, colors, textures and materials to make the inside look fashionable and pleasant.

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 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.

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.

Metrospace Design is simply amazing. The Owners, Susan and Garry Heath, consummate professionals in the area of interior design. Their quote and project ideas were, by far, the best out the six designers that contacted us. I will be using them again for sure!

Metrospace Design was an excellent choice in transforming our Tuscan decorum to a contemporary interior design. The designer was responsiveness and patient with us as we wrestled with the look we wanted to achieve. The selection of fabrics for the furniture, draperies, rugs, etc. were very coordinated. The contracted supports to get the design completed were exceptional individuals. We are loving our home. Sophia M.

This is the first time I have used Thumbtack to hire an Interior Design specialist and Elena has been outstanding in every way. She is very professional, has a keen eye for the subtleties of color, and works hard to ensure you are happy with the project. I am so impressed by her attention to detail and punctuality to all meetings. My project is designing for an office interior and I recommend her without hesitation.

I recently had the pleasure, and I do mean pleasure, of working with Leslie Lovell of Town Center Interior Design. By the time I had my introductory appointment with Leslie, I had already met and gotten estimates from two other decorators. I just didn’t click with either. Leslie, on the other hand, immediately put me at ease. She was undaunted by my limited budget and what I wanted to accomplish. At our initial meeting, she took time to get to know me and my tastes. She really listened to me. She understood that I wanted decor that looked coordinated but not like it was something out of a magazine. She left knowing my color preferences, my taste in furniture, and the necessity to keep certain heirloom pieces of furniture. Most importantly, she understood my budget and that I wished to work through a prioritized list of changes. Throughout the process, she followed the list and stuck to the budget. Ever aware of my budget constraints, Leslie worked tirelessly to find ways to save me money. She showed me where I could purchase an entertainment center that fit a tricky space and my budget. She came up with a way to alter a problem door that was going to be very expensive to replace. I ended up liking her solution so much that I had her do all the interior doors the same way, and for less cost than replacing the problem door! In the end, Leslie completed everything on my list and then some! From the outset, Leslie stayed actively involved in the decorating process. When work called for outside contractors, she brought in top-notch people to give me quotes. She came to the house to introduce contractors, go over their estimates, and inspect their finished jobs. Twice she had contractors touch up minute things I had not even noticed. She e-mailed me pictures of furniture she thought would be to my liking and met me at furniture stores to choose pieces that would blend with family heirlooms. One afternoon, she did not hesitate to kick off her shoes, climb up a ladder, and hang pictures. We talked, we laughed, we worked. I had mixed feelings as my decorating project was nearing an end. I loved my newly decorated home, but I knew I would miss working with Leslie. As it turns out, I believe I have a beautiful new house and a wonderful new friend.
