3 hires on Thumbtack
Had a 1/2 bath/laundry room turned into a shower bathroom. Maria B. contacted me within 24 hours of Thumbtack contact request! We met 24 hrs later and the design materials and contractor she recommended (I asked to use a contractor she trust) showed up ready for work in a week! The design is very classic and the materials she recommended are all very high end at a reasonable cost. I got lots of praises for the first floor bathroom!Aug 4, 2016Verified
I hired B Designs to manage the reconstruction/remodel of my home after Tropical Storm Irene, damaged my home and it was condemned. The insurance company gave me a set $ amount and it was up to her to get the job done. She managed to not only rebuild my entire roof/attic and the water damage, she also reconfigured the bathroom, to make better use of the space and modernize it, and make it a show place, that made it into the local paper! Maria is talented, and brilliant!Aug 4, 2016

What is the end goal? I also offer my ideas and make suggestions about layout, colors and lighting. Sometimes clutter can be a problem too.
