Christine was a delight to work with recently while staging our condo in Vail, Colorado to prepare it to sell. We listed it last year following advice from realtor to list as is with no changes. After a 6 month listing with 3 price reductions we did not receive a single offer in spite of multiple showings. I was referred to Christine by a friend who loved her work and design style. After a walk through and consultation, Christine was able to clearly prioritize a short list of items that we needed to address to get the most bang for our buck while making a radical change in the appearance of the condo to potential buyers. We worried that we would have to spend a fortune on a complete remodel just to sell the property and barely break even. Christine encouraged us to focus on 5 things for a minimal investment to improve our showing potential. She insisted a professional deep cleaning overhaul would be essential, fresh paint throughout, new curtains were needed as an inexpensive option to replace outdated window treatments. We agreed to the changes and hired Christine to oversee the project and finish with professional staging to attract a buyer. I was amazed at how much better the condo looked with the few changes - small changes with drastic impact. Christine has a phenomenal eye for color and visual impact of space. She pulled out all of the ugly drab furniture and replaced with minimal pieces and paint that made the place feel so much bigger. She was extremely professional, considerate of our budget, and worked efficiently to help us transform and list the property. I am so pleased with her work and am blown away by what she was able to achieve in a short amount of time. We listed the property and within 2 weeks we received 2 offers. I'm certain the success is directly related to Christine and her magic.

Aisha was very prompt in responding to our call, she was both gracious and professional at our initial consultation. I would definitely recommend anyone needing interior design services to consider consulting with her and using her services. I was unable to hire her at this time as my initial design budget had to be redirected to other unexpected moving expenses : < ( (sad face). As future budgets allow we will definitely call her back.

Brandi met with us in our home listening to ideas and parameters. She then created a design that matched our design dreams and utilized some key pieces of our furniture. We shopped with her and she had impeccable taste. I enjoyed working with Brandi's upfront pricing, professionalism, and design talent. We now have a home that has the "feel" we wanted. What a perfect bargain.

I was very pleased with the service provided by Ms. Smith. She was able to complete a quick turnaround on the drawings for my retail space, as well as had a very affordable price. I would recommend any business owner who needs architectural services done efficiently, quickly, and for a good best. I plan to use her services for my next second retail store.

Throughout the (design) project, I found Charmaine added invaluable design recommendations that when I first tried to find them alone in showrooms or online, I wasn't able to find them. Having now discovered Charmaine through Thumbtack, I am a happy woman, and will not be looking back.

We found Megan on Thumbtack to assist with the interior design of our first house purchase. Her background and experience is what sold us. She came in and listened to our needs and vision for each room. We were wanting the wow factor upon walking into the main living area because we have high ceilings and Megan hit a homerun with it. When family and friends visit, their mouths drop! It was a great experience and we look forward to working with Megan again in the future on other projects!

I hired Terri for a complete renovation of my condo. It turned out beautiful. Terri took great care in every detail. She was spectacular at selecting paint, furniture, flooring, appliances, area rugs, cabinets, countertops, window treatments, tiles, doorknobs, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, and the list goes on. Everything selected is better than I could have envisioned. Terri is always thinking about creative ways to solve problems and come up with the best solutions, to fit within your budget and personality. Terri came up with solutions I would never have thought of. For example, she found a beautiful coffee table on casters, so that I could move it easily in order to use the pull out bed under the couch when needed. She is smart with her design layout and is careful to ensure the space has a logical flow without everything matching or monotone. The fact that she is also one of the sweetest people on the planet is an added bonus. I am so impressed. So very lucky to have met her. I could not have found a better designer!

When we decided to sell our house, we looked at several options and we found that the best way to place it in the market was hiring a company to make it look “perfect for selling”. We decided to hire D’ Bone Designs. This company makes sure you have the right presentation for potential buyers. We needed a company that we could trust. It was definitely the best move and a good investment. Our house was in the market less than a week, multiple offers came and we got the right buyer. The house was in picture perfect condition with all the help from this company. We would highly recommend D’Bone Designs for anyone wishing to sell their house in a picture perfect way. Thank you D’ Bone Designs for all your wonderful help.

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.
