Pat is awesome. I painted the entire interior of my new home but didn't have the resources to reach the high-up corners in my stairway. He got it done quickly and neatly and also helped me with a few other projects around the house while he was there. His prices are very fair and I'll be sure to have him back to help me with other jobs.

Mr. James Litman was extremely professional in his demeanor, very detail oriented. Never too busy to answer any question. With my hectic work schedule I would sometimes need to text Mr. Litman late in the evening. I could always expect a response before the next day. I did comparison shopping with other contractors and his proposal was lower and more affordable. My hardwood floors, designer paint job and bathroom remodel was top notch. I’m happy to turn the key and enter my home. Would use Unlimited Resources for my next home improvement project. Very satisfied!

Christian Wells and his team are reliable, communicative, experienced, trustworthy and do great work. I had a large complete deck replacement by them and they customized so many parts of the project, including a custom lattice and cantilever solution. His team is so good that I recommended them to my condo board to perform roof replacement work for my townhouse condo association here in Dupont Circle, as well as recommending him as contractor for a new penthouse rooftop deck for another neighbor. Christian was awarded both contracts because everyone in my community saw how dedicated his team is and how good the work product is. I intend to use 5thGen Group for interior work, as well (we had a former lead contractor who was originally hired to transform both the interior and the deck, but proved unreliable and bailed on the deck job, so I used Thumbtack to find Christian/5thGen Group and I am so happy that I did!).

I have hired Dawn for the small project. I asked her to redecorate my newly renovated master bedroom. Dawn was challenged to refresh the look to the room using our existing furniture and wall color that was already painted. Dawn came out with a plan that we liked at the first sight. She proposed a very different window treatment and found a lovely coordinating bedding set. She picked up new night lamps and helped to find a gorgeous makeup vanity piece. The absolutely unique area rug that Dawn found for us was a key element that tied all things together. During the project Dawn was easy to contact and did her best to work with our budget and timeframe. We finished up by over passing both but in a reasonable amount. We have appreciated Dawn’s attitude to be responsive, nice and highly professional. My overall experience is great. My bedroom looks like a designer project: gorgeous and cozy. I definitively recommend Dawn for any interior design project.

If you are looking for an interior designer and decorator, I have an excellent recommendation. KT Wilder is one of the most creative, innovative, fair, and fun people to engage with. Not only has that been my experience, but also the experience of two of my best friends in the Washington, DC area. KT has the unique ability to mesh her own signature and more modern style with each client’s individual taste – and that is when the magic happens. My friends and I all have different styles and KT had the wonderful ability to work with each of our tastes and personalities. She will graciously push you to consider a style or direction you might not have originally chosen, but won’t push too far. She also knows where and when to accelerate or decelerate economic investments. As a result, clients come out with an amazing finished product. For example, I had several pieces of furniture and artwork that had been in my family for some time. I wanted to try and incorporate at least some of these pieces into a newly designed, more modern, and small condo. KT was excellent in helping with this – offering suggestions, modernizing some of the older pieces, and beautifully bringing it all together with my new furnishings and updates. There are so many things that I appreciated about working with KT – I could go on and on about these. I will mention just two here. First, KT is passionate about wanting you as the client to be happy and satisfied. She will try and move mountains to ensure that this can happen. We all know in these types of projects that things can and will not always go as planned. She will be your advocate, she will ensure your needs are met and that everything is completed to an A-plus standard. The second thing that is particularly noteworthy about KT is that she is very competitive from a financial standpoint. I think her rates are very fair. I was never caught by surprise on any billing and she passed along any savings she got as a designer to me. If you select KT as a designer, you would be so lucky. Not only is she incredibly talented and you will love the outcome of everything she touches, you will just adore working with her. She is the best – all the way around!

1. Excellent work in interior flooring design in every which ways...Having 4, in total, of these interesting and yet colorful carpet-tile rugs on the first floor of the house. I really love how neat they make the space look. The carpet-tile material tracks dust and dirt well. A light vacuum returns their pretty look within no time at all. They are both functional as well as pretty. These are unique and one-of-a-kind solution for your floor coverage, and that is what I'd like to have. Chun-Fa's working style is meticulous, thoughtful and efficient for all of my projects. He never drags his feet of delivering a rug design diagram. He listens to my feedback on the proposed design and would alter/adjust the design to my satisfaction. In summary, he is pleasant, considerate and reasonable to deal with. I'd highly recommend Chun-Fa for your design needs. You will be happily surprised on how good and trust-worthy he is!!

Absolutely loved MagnifiqueHomes! I moved to Virginia and needed to downsize quite a bit, moving into a much smaller place. Maud was great at utilizing the small space I had to maximum efficiency, making it feel like a home at the same time. She kept me involved in every step -- making it a truly enjoyable experience. I couldn't be happier with this, my first interior design experience. I would definitely recommend MagnifiqueHomes without hesitation.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
