I can't speak highly enough of Tim and Wanda. What a dynamic duo!! Tim is a master craftsman, and Wanda is a design genius. It was so great having both of them spear-head my renovation project. Tim did whatever was needed; Wanda added that interior design touch. They were professional, reasonably priced, and so nice. It was a pleasure to get to know them both, but their work was fantastic. I highly recommend them for your "handyman" or renovation project. You won't be disappointed!!

The team did a fantastic job on my kitchen and bathrooms upgrades. They installed new lighting, new flooring, and backsplash, sink and countertop installations. I was very pleased with the quality of the work. I was most impressed with their helpful ideas regarding design. It saved me a lot of time and energy that I would have devoted toward researching options for what I wanted to have installed. I would recommend Home Pros without hesitation.

I could not be more satisfied. Barbara sent me examples of her work. When we decided to move forward she had th property staged in under a week with no drama. I took new photos and the first person who viewed the property after staging bought the home. The next person to view bought the home I was selling next door (same floor plan) because they were able to visualize the layout with furniture. All of this after being on the market for over 3 months. Going forward I will insist for new builds my client's will stage the home with Barbara Webb. Money well spent.

I enjoyed her. She really knew her stuff and was up front and honest about what works and what does not. With her help I was able to decorate my home with the right color schemes and home decor. I would definitely hire her again for future projects. My new home decor is awesome.

Jason Hildabrand renovated my kitchen in 2015, and I have been extremely happy with the results. He refaced my cabinets, laid a new hardwood floor, tiled the backsplash, painted, and built new trim around the doors and windows, doing an outstanding job with each project. He gave me the option of letting him choose things for me to select from, light fixtures, faucet, tiles, etc., and I am happy with all those choices. And that made it so easy for me. Best of all, in a way, Jason was always there when he said he would be, ready to do what he said he would do. Working with Jason was probably my best experience in home improvement.

I hired Kalyn to design a bathroom addition in my home. I showed her pictures of my style and she NAILED IT! Everything looks absolutely gorgeous. She was very responsive and worked quickly to help us make decisions, and most importantly she was respectful of our budget. She truly made the experience as stress-free as possible and I completely trust her should we need any more renovations in the future.

First met Connie about 5 years ago when our house was under construction. She helped with the placement and selection of all the lighting and electrical. She saved me a lot of money by preventing mistakes. I had not planned to consult a pro, but decided that I would save time and money with her help as we put the house together. We've been working on this as time/finances permit. First off, she is very good listener. Also a whiz at reusing items that you already own. We moved some pieces around and then had old family pieces repaired/refinished/recovered and the space really works. We've also shopped for new pieces and light fixtures with her help. She has an impeccable sense of space, scale and color and is well connected with local craftspeople. She can give you as much guidance and help as you want or need. We've had nothing but compliments from visitors to our home and have enjoyed the process instead of it being stressful or frustrating.

My living room/kitchen space lacks color and "pop", so I hired Tessa to come and give me a push in the right direction. From the start she was professional in every way! She really listened to my likes and dislikes, and what I want the space to become. She asked general and specific questions about what items I really wanted to keep and what was "negotiable". She measured my space, and within a week, delivered 2 options, with all the pieces interchangeable, of what my space could become. My husband and I were impressed! She nailed our style, and introduced items to nudge us out of our comfort zone. While we are "do-it-yourself" folks, I won't hesitate to call Tessa for any further assistance with our project. It has been a fantastic experience!

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.
