We want to thank you and your team for the work you did in order to complete our crawlspace remediation project. We would not have been able to close on our previous home on time without your flexibility, creativity and constant communication. 5th Gen truly did an amazing job! We looking forward to using your services again in the future.

The J-Team has done 2 projects for me. A finished basement (1500 sq ft, 3 bedrooms, 2 bath) and a complete single family home (approx. 2000 sq ft). Both jobs were OUTSTANDING! Trustworthy, punctual, detailed and reasonably priced are words I would use to describe the J-Team. The only person I'll use.

We hired Shane to add a bedroom in our already finished basement. He won the bid on price, but also because he had really good ideas about how to reconfigure the space, which made it much more useful, and also attractive. He added a built-in shelf to one area, which is really beautiful and enhances the space tremendously. Based on Shane's work in the basement, we hired him to tear a wall out in our dining room, and add a door to another room in order to create a home office. We are planning to continue with more renovations, and intend to hire J&S for everything. They are easy to work with, and communicate clearly about changes of scope, and any issues that come up. We are very happy with the quality of the work as well.

Lhet is phenomenal, professional, and personable. Before I asked for help through Thumbtack, I was so sure I could organize my home myself. For months, I thought I was going to get to it. I am so happy I asked for help. I invested in my peace of mind and a structured home! Lhet does it all! I got my entire home organized and deep cleaned. It is beautiful and I am at ease and so very happy! Thanks, Lhet!!!!

If you’re in need of a reliable, honest and get-it-done general contractor for your home remodeling needs, Al and his crew are the GO TO GUYS! We recently had a rather large basement remodel project where we took an unfinished space (approx.. 900 sq. feet) to a home office/ dental laboratory finish. There were a lot of moving parts involved – all new electrical/ mechanical/ plumbing; installation of egress & small sliding window(s), walk-out door w/ retaining walls and pavement; added bathroom & work/equipment room. Al took the design plans from a paper to presence, and really worked with us to stay on time and on budget. From the initial consultation, he took his time to go over details of the project and provide us with a written proposal on the spot. What was also appreciated was that he used upgraded materials rather than standard builder supplies, which really makes a huge difference in appearance! Al and his guys are meticulous, detailed & very clean – at the end of each work day, the floors were always swept & materials put away. Another consideration for us was trust since my husband & I weren’t home during the day. I can say with complete confidence that you can trust Premier Home Services to do their job, in your home without supervision. We will definitely use them again for our next home project. Thanks Al!

Mr. Handyman is a passionate professional that performs above and beyond the bar. He responded immediately with a rough quote and came out to our home to complete an on-site estimate, paying attention to the details of the scope of work requested. He also identified some areas that we were unaware of which showed us he knew what he was doing. We decided to choose Mr. Handyman and we are very happy with our decision. Our project, which consisted of framing and installing drywall, had a tight schedule, yet Mr. Handyman and his crew were committed to completing the job. They were timely arrivers and good with communication as they updated us daily on progress. The completed outcome of the project was satisfactory and professionally done as we asked for. These guys are dedicated workers and we hope to have more projects with them in the future when new funds become available because they DO IT ALL!

I hired New Vision Properties Construction Services to remodel my kitchen. It badly needed work and had to be completely gutted. New Vision Properties provided outstanding service and high-quality work--they finished my project on schedule, kept me appraised of progress and were very transparent about costs. Richard and his crew were courteous and very professional. My new kitchen looks great, and I plan to re-hire them for my next remodeling project.

I am very happy with KT's services and will be working with her again in the future. I had been looking for help with interior decorating but was scared-off by many designers/decorators that charge large fees, are looking for big projects, and come off as snobby. I was searching for someone that is down to earth and has a flexible and economical range of services. After searching for many years, I was lucky to be matched with KT on thumbtack. I am a novice/untrained decorator and have a good base of colors and elements in my condo but was looking for help/advice in tying things together with color and accessories. KT was just the right fit for me. We scheduled a 2 hour consultation and she arrived promptly and with great energy. She is incredibly down to earth and listened intently to the areas I needed help with and where I was feeling stuck. She provided excellent advice and within the two hours of our consultation I knew exactly what I wanted to do and am so excited to get started. She also offered helpful tips on vendors and painting techniques as well as placement of art and mirrors. KT's services are accessible to all price ranges and she has an incredible personality and ability to listen. We'll be calling her again when we buy our next house!

I could not be happier with Yotsy! As a first time homeowner, I had no idea where to start with a home painting project. Yotsy made it incredibly easy, helping to refine my ideas, finding the best paint for the job and being incredibly fast and responsive. He responded to my quote request within minutes, came the same day and started the next morning. He did a huge job efficiently and at a GREAT price compared to the other quotes I received. I’ll be calling him for all my home painting projects in the future.

Working with Damian was a sincere pleasure. His professional experience was invaluable when it came to understanding my needs for my new home design. He was able to show me my home design in his very cool 3D computerized program. My house came to life when I saw it! He is an amazing architect with vision whom I would strongly recommend to anyone who wants to create their new home or project.

Signature Design Interiors staged my home in One Loudoun and did an amazing job! They brought in furnishings, art, area rugs, linens, and accessories to highlight my home's best features. The turnaround time between requesting their help and the completed project was just a couple of days. I highly recommend the team at Signature Design Interiors for staging as well as decorating and remodeling. They are top notch!

Angela is so talented and gave our house a much needed make over. She is great to work with. In our first meeting, I showed her some ideas and talked about my goals. When she came back with her recommendations, I was amazed - she totally "got" my aesthetic and just completely nailed it. Our home was transformed into a beautifully designed and functional family household. We just bought a new house and I am going to work with Angela again on a total design make over. She is fantastic!

My living room was a mismatch of minimal furniture and no decor. Maria helped me pull together my living room by rearranging my furniture, adding a beautiful lounge and finding me a large piece of art to pull together everything. She worked with my budget and time frame.

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.
