We hired Erik Johnsen of The Fantasy Workshop to complete several jobs for us before we put our house on the market. He was incredibly helpful in identifying what he thought should and could get done in a day's time. He was able to help us complete these projects quite quickly, as we were under a tight timeline. As promised, he was punctual and incredibly efficient. He arrived to our house early, ready to get down to work. He changed out our old kitchen faucet, fixed the hinges on two doors (returning the doors to full functioning capacity), repaired a wood bench, painted the risers on our stairs, and painted our door. He also fixed several light fixtures in the house. This is work that would have cost us quite a bit of time to do ourselves, and we would not have done it with the care or attention that Erik provided. Our house looks polished and ready for a listing. Finally, he is a kind person and his prices were incredibly fair. I would use him again for any job. I strongly recommend him to anyone needing looking for a painter or handyman. I only regret that we are moving, and won't be able to use him again in the future.

We've used Betsy on several projects and will use her services again. She is professional, kind, friendly and easy to work with. She listens to our needs and goes the extra mile to deliver. Her suggestions have made us think outside of our usual humdrum way of decorating (or not decorating, as the case may be!).

I had an amazing experience with Lacy from Studio eIQ! I had a scattered idea of what I wanted in my new home and she made it a reality. I have received countless compliments on her work - with my new neighbor going so far as to say "This is the nicest apartment I have ever seen." The biggest compliment I can give, however, is that I truly look forward to coming home each day as I feel as though this is my sanctuary. I continue to love the furniture, decor, and overall design of my home more and more each day and am eternally grateful for Lacy's patience, communication, and outstanding job helping me create the home of my dreams!

Richard did the job well for the time frame required and was very helpful. He even included future tips and advice that was great for a first time home buyer like myself. Would hire him again if I could go back in time.

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!

I hired Hilltop Total Home Care to redo my stairs in the back of my house and to close some holes in my walls that were left by plumbers. The job was well done and the team even cleaned up afterwards.

Mr. Taylor did a complete remodel of my bathroom at my new home. When we purchased our new home me and my husband decided to have our bathroom updated. We werent sure what we wanted but knew we didnt want to spend an arm and a leg. A friend of us referred david to us so we called him and set up an appointment for him to come and give us a quote. He arrived on time and was very professional. I was pleasantly suprised that he understood everything i said that i said i wanted. He listened intently and even offer advice. The end result was absolutely gorgeous. He tailored the job to our budget and we still ended up with more than we expected and in a timely manner. We love it so much, thank you Mr. Taylor.

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.
