Absolute life saver by hiring EBRR Services. Our residence is located in BethesdaMD and we only hire contractors that have rave reviews as our property needs to be handled in the best manner possible. The end result of our project looks amazing and is nothing less than stellar. The roof now looks like it has been recently replaced.- KG

The design services provided by Lizzie Moore and the New Vision team were outstanding and professional in every way. Lizzie has spoken with me extensively about different options for my home including paint colors, furniture, layouts, and fabric choices. She even developed multiple floor plans of my entire home and has been very patient as I have made decisions. Lizzie's attention to design details and color coordination are unmatched! She is truly a skilled designer, not to mention is very fun to work with!

I purchased a new town home and while it was being built I worked with Venetia to design my entire house. We spent several sessions just getting to understand my vision and taste and on the day I received my keys she presented me with a Complete design board which was absolutely beautiful. Getting everything done was easy with her and managed greatly. There's not a day that I don't love entering my home as well as the many compliments revived by all. She choose my colors, art, rugs, custom upholstery, furniture pieces and even custom bedding. I will always look to her on my future projects and highly recommend her.

My husband and I bought our first house in early spring of 2017. We spent four years saving for a down payment, living in an aging, low-cost apartment complex with little frills. We had 30-year-old furnishings that relatives had gifted us back when we went off to college, so we were excited to toss the old furniture and start with a fresh slate for our new place. The home-buying process was stressful enough and when I began looking to decorate our new home, I quickly became overwhelmed. Here I'd never cared much about designing or decorating because I didn't own our place, so I'd never really spent time looking into home décor or fixtures. There were just so many options out there. We decided we needed some help, so we hired BB Designs and worked with Brook. She took the reigns and educated us on basics of design. She first set up a consultation to get to know us and our personalities. She did an amazing job pulling together curated selections for our living room, dining room, and kitchen. And, she nailed it! I loved everything she recommended. Having three well-selected options instead of surfing the internet through 300 options saved us time and quelled the stress. She also suggested staining our hardwood floors from a blond to a more modern coffee-type color and the are exquisite. We updated the railings and fire places, too, giving our home traditional mid-century home a more update urban chic look!

In March, I hired Collene of Exclusive Creations Design to decorate my office space and training center. I had a special event that I was hosting and had to have the work completed in just under 1 week. She used a few existing pieces that I already had and I gave her carte blanche for the rest. The outcome was phenomenal! I left her with a blank space and when I walked in to the finished product, I felt like I was on a decorating show! I constantly receive complements about the choice of colors and the furnishings. Several months later I enlisted her services again for another studio space and again- it turned out wonderfully. I highly recommend Collene. She does a fantastic job meeting your needs with your budget to create your dream space!

My Interior Design firm has often required the services of an architect to accomplish our client’s goals. Stephen Dunakoskie became our go to firm several years ago because of the quality and professionalism he contributed to our projects. He is honest and dependable, detailed and thorough, creative and talented. He always goes the extra mile to perform in the best interest of our clients. I would highly recommend him for any size projects you may be ready to successfully achieve.

I worked with Hannah on a listing in Great Falls. She came in as a consultant and helped to decide what the sellers needed to do to organize, what they needed to get rid of and how to rearrange rooms to open them up and make them look more welcoming. It's amazing what she did, using the existing furniture and accessories to better stage the home to sell. Hannah is a top notch stager and I would highly recommend her for full home staging, room staging or consultation.

I don't know what my house would look like without Hubert. I thought I didnt have a style, but Hue's nurturing and patient nature helped me find it. Together with his impeccable aesthetic, I am living in my HOME. His eye is simple, elegant and refined. From color consultation to furniture selection,he will bring your dreams to life (even the ones you didn't know you had). I wouldn't trust anyone else.

Very responsive, prompt, and accommodating with scheduling the initial consultation. Colleen had great samples with her, and was able to take preliminary measurements and provide various product style recommendations and quotes immediately. The installer was also great - the end results are even better than we envisioned. We also felt the pricing and timing to get everything (from initial consultation to final installation) was very reasonable.

Q (Quintin the Owner) is such a ball of fun personality with great professional foundation about himself. His consultations are a nice way to open me and my wife up to ideas. He charges at an affordable price. Only thing I wasnt to pleased about at first was how we went over the budget by $2000 but it was worth it in the end of the project. We are enjoying every inch of our basement bar area and now. Thank you Q. I highly recommend

Dominique helped us with our home decorating from A to Z ... she consulted with us for design options and color choices during the construction process and was in charge of decorating all the rooms for our entire home! She did an amazing job!!! She helped us with room arrangements, paint colors, furniture choices, purchasing, and all the finishing touches. She arranged for carpenters, electricians, etc. to support special projects. We love everything about the way our home turned out - we couldn't be happier!

My experience proved to be one of excellence. When following my specifications initially midway I had another idea. She willingly accommodated the request. She designed a logo for a non profit in the works. Landscaping ideas, she most recently agreed to design a faith based tshirt logo. Two thumbs up.

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.
