"When I first met with Jody I had no idea what to expect out of this whole experience. I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I had just purchased our new home and had planned to do some MINOR renovations which we couldn't wait to get started on. We knew we needed to bring someone in to help us because this was our dream home and we wanted it to be perfect. I sat down with Jody and showed her our plans and right away she was throwing ideas my way and giving me that vision that I just couldn't grasp on my own. I'm not sure if it was her expertise of the trade or her amazing personality that made me feel so comfortable but we clicked right away and I basically hired her on the spot. Fast forward a month or so and our MINOR renovations unexpectedly left us with a chimney and some walls(that also ended up being torn down.) My husband and I were in a panic and had no idea how we were going to manage this project but thanks to Jody we did and we now live in the home of our dreams. Jody helped with every little detail of our home. She sat with us for hours going over floor plans, different furniture lay outs, looking at tiles, fabrics, wall coverings, different finishes for all our appliances/furniture, window treatments, lighting, carpets, wood floor samples and stains. You name it she did it! She perfected each paint color in our home to a point where we get compliments all the time on how nicely everything flows and how beautiful all the colors are. She knew our style from some images she requested I send her and from there on she was on point with every little detail of our home. When we weren't loving something..which was rare... she would always say "You can't like it, you have to LOVE it..we will find something else, don't rush!" And she would do just that, sometimes by the next day. I am an extremely indecisive person and Jody was always so patient with me. She would come to our house with a ton of samples, I would make a decision and then call her before she had even gotten home to tell her I wasn't sure if I made the right choice. She would laugh, because at this point she already knew that phone call was coming and she always said "Don't rush, I will find some other options and you let me know what you want to do." And she did just that and ironically I would always go with what she had originally chosen to show us. We would text her at all hours of the day/night with images and thoughts and she always got back to us within no time at all and always reassured us that our home was going to be perfect and that there was nothing to worry about. Our conversations more than likely ended up totally off topic and we would end up chatting for a while about everyday stuff which was also something I always appreciated and admired about her. No matter how busy her life was, she made time for us and our project. Jody put us in contact with a ton of great vendors and held our hands throughout the way with each one of them. If there was a mix up in our order I would call her and within minutes she had already contacted the vendor and got back to us with an answer/solution. She would go out of her way to pick up items that we needed and would deliver them to us right away and the same went for if we needed to return something to a vendor. There was never a favor we asked of her that she said no to and at times I don't know how she did it with a smile on her face because we were extremely needy! Jody helped us achieve the home of our dreams and we will forever be grateful for all of her hard work. We love working with her and will continue to do so for all the smaller decorative details of our home and we plan on asking for her expertise again when we fill up our other spare bedroom. She made our home building/decorating experience fun and less stressful, we truly don't know how we would have done it without her. Besides Jody being the best at what she does: she is personable, kind, witty and extremely down to earth and an absolute pleasure to work with. I'd say her only flaw is that she is a Boston Red Sox fan :)"

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 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.

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 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.
