When I hired Sharon Hocking to come in and do a complete Interior Design of our Living and Dinning Rooms I had no idea just how wonderful this experience would be. Sharon was excellent to work with and listened to all of my concerns, ideas and suggestions. She was very communicative and prompt when we would set up meetings. Her attention to detail is beyond anything else I could have done on my own. Because I still work full time Sharon was able to do all of the leg work and then some. The next time I get ready to do some more decorating in my home Sharon will be the first and only Interior Designer that I will hire.

As soon as he saw it, John had ideas for replacing our carport with a better engineered and more attractive design. It was weighing on the house roof and there was leaking over the entry. He was prompt, direct and informative, and supplied a schedule. His workers were pleasant and left things neat, removing old nails from the driveway every day. Any delays came with an explanation. The end result is a vast improvement, with fewer posts and a higher ceiling

Working with Tamauflage was a great experience. She had fantastic ideas how to improve the interior of my house and make it ready to sell. She worked meticulously, cleaned up everything once she was done and got the job done within the agreed upon time frame. I am very satisfied with Tama's service and would highly recommend her to anyone! Her pricing was competitive with other quotes, but I'm so glad I chose to work with Tama and feel that she paid attention to the details and was worth every penny!

Marlene has done multiple residential jobs for my family, and I also used her for the interior design scheme of a commercial office complex that I manage. She always impresses me by coming up with a solution that is not only beautiful but appropriate to the application. Marlene is a real talent, a genuine artist and a great person to work with. I recommend her highly.

Christina has helped us on two different occasions. She helped us design our basement remodel as well as an outdoor fire pit area. Both times she listened to our ideas/desires and created a few different designs to give us multiple ideas. She's great to work with and will certainly be a part of any future home projects!

Pangaea provided excellent and creative designs for some difficult spaces in our new home, including kitchen, master bedroom and living room. The results were outstanding, and we receive nothing but compliments from folks who visit our home. She also operates on a fixed-fee model for her time, which made the design costs predictable.

We really enjoyed working with Melissa on our Master bedroom and family room renovation. Her great design experience, and expertise in purchasing furnishings on a budget were appreciated.

About

I am an Atlanta based interior designer. I specialize in space planning, home renovations, color palette selection, furniture restoration, furnishings selections, and home staging. I work with clients to create their best environment within their budget.

About

I love helping clients, not only achieve their goal, but if the dream or ideas change, I can also adapt to the changes and find something that inspires the client to keep moving forward and understand that design is always about the person and will continue to evolve. Your dream design can showcase the growth within you as an individual.

About

It's the wow factor, especially in re-design projects. We add the pizzazz, the snap, the pop, the interest that goes beyond the typical "nice" home. We create custom pieces too - each home can have stand-out, extra special, and neat items so the owner can say, "Nope, no one else has this!" We work with the client to see if they have an idea that we can help them bring into existance.

About

I advise clients on interior design factors such as space planning, layouts and furnishings utilization. I also help them on furniture purchases, accessories, window treatments, kitchen and bath designs, lighting, and color coordination throughout their homes. I also help with event planning and parties.

About

In 2007, I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and two years later, I earned my AKBD (Associate Kitchen & Bath Designer) certificate through the National Kitchen and Bath Association. I have worked the full spectrum of design including at several design/build firms on high end kitchen/baths and whole house remodels to smaller family-run construction companies with a focus on work where budget is paramount. In this industry, I have found that building relationships, networking with vendors, and focusing on quality long-term partners can generate the best bridges for life. My passion for interior design started when I was young, helping my uncle, a local contractor/home builder on job sites, analyzing the architectural plans, visiting product showrooms, and assisting with material choices. I loved the client interaction and creative expression interior design allowed. Plus, what a fun career! Working with homeowners to create beautiful interiors where they can feel comfortable and joyful is an exhilarating challenge I look forward to every day. My approach to design involves a very collaborative open communication between designer and client. To truly design the space, I need to know a few things about how you live. For example, how many people will be living in the home, how many pets, and low maintenance or green material preferences. As a designer, I can envision how simple, out-of-the-box solutions to problems in our environments can truly change the functionality of how we live. My personal style is transitional, however, I spend a lot of time upfront listening to my client's needs and wants before evaluating what style would be the best fit their lifestyle. I am very energized and encouraged for a great year after attending the 2014 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) and International Builders Show (IBS) in Vegas and eager to work on your project! Let me know how I can help you with your home! Key interior design tasks are as follows: * In-home client consultations * Auto CAD floor plans, elevations and renders * Putting together color palettes * Specifying materials and writing construction documents * Space layout and 20/20 cabinetry design * Furniture and window treatment selections * Individualized project budgeting and pricing * Design retainer payment structure

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does it mean to stage a home?

Home staging is the real estate strategy of decorating your home to be as marketable as possible to your target demographic. Home staging is done by interior decorators and other design pros hired by the homeowner or realtor, prior to putting a house on the market. Think of it as setting the stage for potential buyers to fall more easily in love with their future homes — and to spend top dollar to get them. It’s likely to be worth the investment: The Real Estate Staging Association reports that staged homes spend 90 percent less time on the market than those that are not staged. Home stagers can also be hired even if you’re not going anywhere. Stagers can consult on new layouts for your current home, much like an interior decorator.

Home staging can take place while you still occupy the house you plan to sell, or when the home is vacant. For an occupied home, the home stager will clear out clutter, rearrange furniture, and bring in decor and furniture as needed to create the perfect environment. Usually an occupied home has far too much of the current owner’s personality stamped on it, which makes it hard for prospective buyers to envision themselves living there. A home stager should neutralize and beautify the space. In vacant homes, a home stager will bring in furniture and decor so that potential buyers don’t walk into an empty house, which can be equally hard to imagine living in as a cluttered, occupied home.

 

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 much does it cost to stage a home for sale?

Nationally, the price for home staging ranges between $750 and $1,500. The price varies based on how many rooms in the house need staging, whether furniture and decor are needed or the stager can work with the client’s belongings, whether the home is occupied or vacant, and the sale price of the home. Occupied homes typically cost less to stage as they are already furnished, and can require less time and resources than staging an empty house. The main tasks when staging an occupied home are rearranging and decluttering. Staging an empty house can be more expensive as furniture and decor need to be trucked in, requiring transportation, physical labor and potential rental fees. Here are some examples of average home staging costs:

  • 2-hour consultation: $200, includes DIY tips and guidance.
  • 1- to 2-hour consultation and design session: $250, including written report.
    • Additional design consulting: $65 per hour.
  • 8 hours of staging an occupied home: $800.
    • Hands-on staging involving moving furniture, hanging and moving art, and decluttering.
  • Starting price for staging a vacant home could be $2,200.
  • A home stager may charge 1 percent of the home’s selling price.

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.
