After 30+ years of home ownership, my wife and I decided we needed to update our living room, dining room, foyer and hallway. Our living room was a "formal" living room and rarely got used. Karen understood our remodeling concerns and made some preliminary suggestions to make our living and dining areas come alive with modern changes and optimum utilization of available space. Karen's expertise as an interior decorator basically transformed these areas by recommending structural changes, painting, lighting, decorating, furniture and carpet selection as well as window treatments and accessories. She took a personal interest in our project and provided us with frequent communications and home visits to check on the progress. One of the nice qualities about Tipp Interiors is the fact that they can provide the necessary craftsmen to do the remodeling. We never thought about hiring a decorator before but we were certainly glad we did. We are totally impressed with the outcome of the project and professionalism of this talented lady. We look at this home renovation as an investment to make our home more livable and truly more attractive. As a completely satisfied client, we can highly recommend Karen and Tipp Interiors.

Left to our own skill as interior decorators, we were doomed... Patti came in and listened to our ideas for our kitchen. In short order she created a plan, and we were on our way to what has turned out to be our dream kitchen. Chip and Joanna would be jealous of the final result, and under the budget that we had planned to spend! We highly recommend Patti Johnson!

This is my 4th project utilizing the services of Jenny Lyon of Interior Attire, and have 2 more in-the-waiting. Re-upholstering a mid-century leather chair, re-designing cushions for 1950's patio furniture, re-upholstering a very fine wing back chair, and presently re-working/ reupholstering a 1930's barrel chair. All very unique pieces. I can't tell you how pleased I have been. Her keen sense of design as well as meticulous attention to every detail has enabled me to feel secure in her every decision. Jenny is very receptive to client involvement, and will bounce ideas as well as fabric samples until one feels excited and satisfied. Look her will be pleasantly surprised.

We ordered window treatments for our entire house from Decorating Den Interiors. Abby provided us with several options and helped us select various styles and types of treatments for each specific space. She also ensured all of the options we chose worked together room to room and from the outside of our home. She went well above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we were looking for to make our house perfect.

Truly gifted! I felt like I was on an episode of 'Love It or List It'. Not only did she declutter my whole house she stage it purged or repurposed many of my items in ways I couldn't have imagined on my own. She opened areas that I thought were closed and cramped, she brightened areas that I thought were dark and depressing, she exposed areas I once hid and she did it all with the energy, gusto and drive of a Designer Version of the Energizer Bunny. I can hardly put my satisfaction into words so will quote my 7 year old daughter who was pleasantly shocked and excitedly surprised when she came home from school. After walking into the front door she simply stood there in the front foyer, motionless but shaking her head back and forth in disbelief. "Mommy what happened", she said, "it's like we have a new house. It's so beautiful now, I love it!".

    Bobbi Jo provided interior design services for a recent home renovation and room refresh. I shared my ideas and inspiration with her and we did some shopping together. But, the real value came from the work she did to help pull the pieces together - accessories, artwork, paint colors. She executed on my vision and delivered and an end result that was even better. Then, she helped put it all together in my home. Very affordable and convenient!

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
