I hired Stephen last summer to install a screen door on the front door of the house. The door was not designed to have a screen door, so he had to design a frame build out to accommodate the screen door and handle the stress of the door opening and closing. He did a great design, made the build out look like part of the original door frame, and installed the door. Terrific job and a great person to work with. I'm already building out my list of other jobs I need done on the house and will definitely be calling Stephen to get them done.

We were very pleased with Justin's suggestions for fixing our kitchen cabinet. He completed the work in a timely fashion and we are very happy with the quality of his work. We will call on him for future projects if need be.

I’m so glad I called Ernest! He was able to come by the same day that I called him and installed some pull-out drawers in my kitchen cabinets right away! The cabinets were so annoying to install (I had tried to do them myself previously), and he did them very efficiently and well! Great work, will definitely call him again.

I received a very reasonable quote for the installation of a garbage disposal and a new kitchen faucet. For once, I was pleasantly surprised. He arrived a few minutes early. That's a first. Although he ran into a few problems, as is expected in old houses, everything was done well and the price remained reasonable! I have a number of projects and have already asked for quotes from Big Eight Mechanical. They do everything. After searching for years for someone I can rely on to do work in my house, I found the one company that can do it all. This is a great find! I had a perfectly terrific experience today. I couldn't be more pleased!

ER Construction was great, will definitely be hiring them again. Ed (the owner) was quick to swing by and give me an estimate for the plastering of joints and ceiling in my bathroom renovation. Price was very fair and his crew came a few days later to do the project. They were efficient, friendly, and professional. Finished the job in good time, cleaned up, and were on their way. Will definitely be recommending to my friends and family.

I hired Wayne to build a custom island for a small, tricky space in our kitchen. The result is beautiful and exactly what we had wanted. Wayne paid attention to the details to make sure the island matched the rest of our kitchen. The quality and his level of craftsmanship really shows. Would definitely hire Wayne again in the future.

Very pleased with Bob and his crew. After two years of being jerked around by various contractors and friends who said they could "easily do this" we finally found RM Paolino Construction. Bob met with us on a Saturday and gave us a detailed estimate with some great cost-saving design changes for our kitchen and bathroom. We signed a contract that following Friday and by Monday morning our bathroom was gutted and on its way. What a relief it's been to deal with a real contractor after all time we wasted with other so called "professionals". Bob has kept us up to speed every step of the way and the bathroom looks great. Can't wait for kitchen to start. Highly recommend RM Construction to anyone looking for a professional, full service contractor who won't give you the run around!

I’m so glad to have connected with Jay. He came to quote a fence repair project and I was delighted to find that his skill set extended way beyond fencing. I’ve now also hired him to rebuild deck stairs as well as replace a kitchen interior wall and exterior window sill, both damaged by ice dams. Jay’s pricing is extremely fair, work is thorough and his communication is timely. I highly recommend him for any jobs you have around your home!

I am so happy that I chose Mark for our kitchen remodel! Mark listened to my ideas and offered his own suggestions and improvements from his past experiences. After working through the layout together Mark's work was superior quality. He has strong attention to detail, and it showed in his cabinet making and installation. I highly recommend Mark for any project and I know we would be delighted to use him again, or know that our recommendation of Mark encouraged others to move forward with Mark! You will not regret it! I am so grateful to have found a customer focused and solution orientated contractor!!

Nick was wonderful to work with! He was prompt in his replies, gave me an accurate estimate, and did beautiful work on my kitchen backsplash. We had some scheduling difficulties, but even that did not bother me because Nick's communication was so good that I always knew what was going on and was able to plan around it. It turned out that there was a difference in my counter heights from the left side of my stove to the right (my home is 60 years old). Nick was able to correct for this and the backsplash looks AMAZING! I will definitely be using Nick's services in the future. I would recommend him to anyone!

Got my kitchen redone, and, actually the whole first floor of my home for essentially what it would have cost for the just the kitchen. All decisions were made with my input so there were no surprises. Once the job got started it progressed rather seamlessly with little interruption of my daily routine.

I have just started working with Pamela to put a lot of kitchen into a tiny space. Happily she has been willing to work with those limitations, and the contractor-cabinet maker she works with is also a can-do person. I am very much looking forward to my new kitchen!

Vicki is the best of the best. We have utilized interior designers before, all with good results, but Vicki is in a class by herself. Her personality, tireless worth ethic, eye for detail, wonderful sense of taste, and her commitment to complete the project that matches your vision to the highest of expectations are all core values of both her personal and professional principles. Vicki gets our highest of recommendations.

I was incredibly pleased after working with Alexandra and her team! I desperately needed to renovate my dated bathroom and they guided me through the process after I had chosen the tile and design. This was my first renovation as a homeowner and they listened to my needs but also stepped in with advice. They recommended that I go with grey rather than white grout on the floor and I am so happy with the final product. Recommend hands down and when the time comes for further renovations I will be choosing them!

Total kitchen remodel. Came out just as I hoped it would. Jason is very professional and courteous. I was surprised by how quickly he demoed and installed new cabinets. (3days). If not for the wait on the granite company, the remodel would have been completed in a week. My favorite part was the all inclusive price..demo, new cabinets, stainless appliances, sink, granite, backsplash, he does it all. Very affordable, and quick. Highly recommend Sousa Houses to Homes for any of your remodeling needs.

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.
