There are no words to describe how thankful I am that I found Patrick through Thumbtack. He was amazing to work with and built a beautiful creative business workplace for me. He took my bare bones drawings and less than clear ramblings and transformed my warehouse space into a warm, fully functioning cooking studio that exceeded my expectations. He was always mindful of my budget and went above and beyond presenting me with different options. He was very dependable, punctual, and trustworthy. I absolutely would recommend Patrick to everyone and look forward to working with him again.

Lisa and her team are very professional to work with, organized and on top of every detail! She tackled a mutli-room remodel at my home, Lisa's design solutions are stunning, I am extremely satisfied. I could not have done this project on my own, my husband was so impressed he asked her to handle his office remodel project.

Hot water heater in attic failed and sent water and ceiling to come through to our front entry and den. All flooring in hall, dining, den and front entry had to be replaced, in addition the mess that was caused by the water and fallen ceiling had to be cleaned up, before any work could be started on the reconstruction Beth, thank you for your valuable assistance with our interior decorating, this past January. Merrilyn and I are very pleased with the choices made for our flooring along with all your other decorating suggestions. As you know, Merrilyn had just come home for a short stay in the hospital and could not have handled all the damage that a leaking water heater can cause. From picking out the new flooring and a new carpet for the family room, to handling all of the subcontractors, you made a disaster into a workable and very satisfactory conclusion. Your upbeat personality and stickler for perfection was just what we needed to get through this extremely difficult situation. Your ideas were great and your prices were very competitive. As a result of the above, I can assure you that we will be on calling you again, in the future, as we make additional changes to our home.

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 have used Kimberly for several interior projects. She did my kitchen 12 years ago, a new addition 6 years ago with a master bath & last year my living room & dining room. Kimberly is fantastic. She isn't like other designers I have talked with who tell you how your home should look, one style of design and show you very expensive pieces. She really works with you to understand your vision, your budget and your lifestyle. She understood that I had to keep a couple of family pieces and she incorporated into the design beautifully. She really gives you the highest quality design with I think the highest value. She is going to redo my hall bath this summer and then next year she is my first call with a pending kitchen update. Hiring Kimberly to manage your project ends up saving you money and a lot of headaches. She really takes the stress out of your project. Every project she has done for me has been exactly what I hoped it would be.

Kelly's very sweet, professional, and easy to work with. She works efficiently and provides honest feedback to our selections. She pays attention to the vision that we are trying to achieve and listens to our concerns. She lifts the stress of decorating the house and self-doubt from us and makes us enjoyed the building process again. She's also very flexible and responsive to our requests. I appreciate that Kelly pays attention to details and provides us with tips and tricks during the construction process. I would highly recommend her.

We hired The Home Store to provide interior design services to help update and redesign the layout of our living room and master bedroom. They also designed and renovated out kitchen and maste bathroom and did an outstanding job! They were very helpful with color and product pairing along with helping with furniture and accories for that living area and master bedroom styling. We have already hired then for our lake house and have referred them to friends. Their design showroom was extremely helpful with picking our products and pairing our colors and textures. Giacomo was patient and his experience with design and renovations helped bring the entire project together.

Jennifer is extremely personable which makes her easy to work with. She designed the interior for my Belize vacation home and is extremely creative. She considered the beach location when coming up with color schemes and this went a long way to set the ambience for our home. She also thought of all of the important details - night stands have to be the right height to match the bed, dresser has to be the correct width to line up with the wall mounted TV that it is under. Things that I would have never thought of. I cant recommend her more highly.

I am in the new home construction business myself. I came across Priscilla and absolutely fell in love. Not only was she professional but she was very prompt and responsive. She set incredible expectations and always followed through on her word. The finished product for my little girl's nursery was out of this world. I knew exactly what I wanted and she turned my vision into a reality. I will definitely be using her again for future design projects. I HIGHLY recommend Valentine Interior Design!

About

The thing I do that is different from most interior designers is that I design for the customer instead of myself. My design style is based on the knowledge my customers give me and what they want. I can give my professional opinion all day long and if you don't like the end results then it won't do any good. That's where I think it's important to listen to the client.

I always thought I had a decent sense of taste, and did OK decorating my own home. Then my husband and I decided to do a major rehaul. I realized I needed some help. We hired Emily to help us and the experience was unbelievable! We was so incredibly amazed at the final outcome! I could have NEVER done this by myself and gotten these results! Her knowledge and skills are incredible, not to mention she is super fun to work with! It’s been over 2 years and I still look around and just love our home, thanks to Emily!

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.
