We moved into a two-bedroom house and our designer recommended EBRR as a general contractor for our major renovation projects. Luis, the project manager, came in, listened to all our needs and specificity notated our request. We had a complete estimate for everything within only a few days including cost and time frames. Barry and EBRR was able to accommodate with all architect's drawings, all subcontractors and permits. The work was done on time and within budget, even with the inevitable surprises that always come up during renovation. They were punctual, always respectful and very neat.

I contracted Unlimited Resources, Inc. for a designer paint job and the installation of exotic hardwood floors throughout my living room and family room and ceramic flooring in the kitchen. I was hesitant about the paint combination because I was stepping outside of my box but Mr. Litman advised me through the purchases and I was thoroughly pleased with the end result. I picked out a very expensive exotic wood which would have to be ordered and would take weeks to arrive and I was working within a tight timeline to have the work completed. Mr. Litman was able to locate the wood in the metropolitan area and completed the project in an expeditious manner. My neighbors and family have asked to see the finished work and I've received rave reviews! I wouldn't hesitate to use Unlimited Resources, Inc. for future home improvement endeavors.

Al Barney is my hero. He has been a part of our lives for 15 years here in Leesburg. He is my "GO TO GUY". I come up with an idea and I call Al. He makes it happen. In my last home he created an amazing outdoor space with a screened in porch and deck, flowing to an amazing patio. Years later he created a front porch that made my house unique to others in the neighborhood. Now, I have an older home that needed updating. He gave me an amazing kitchen with an island and cabinets that are breathtaking. Please come see my kitchen. I am proud to say that Al Barney is my friend, my designer, my builder and my mentor. Next stop....my master bathroom.

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.

My husband and I have done renovations on a couple of properties on our own, but I was looking for some assistance with this latest renovation since my husband was deployed. The difference between how this renovation went in comparison to those is shocking – in a good way! Brook with BB Designs & Remodeling helped me in ways I didn’t even know I needed assistance. For example, her suggestion of moving a wall and a window in our living room ended up creating a showcase space that opens beautifully onto our wooded backyard. That kind of pre-construction/design assistance was exactly what I was looking for in a designer!! The vision that she laid out in our original meeting was amazing. After our initial meeting at the property, we sat down and went through various pictures and idea books so that Brook could further hone in on our desired look. She came to the table very organized and had multiple selections for me (lighting, kitchen cabinet pulls, wall colors, etc.), all the while offering her creative suggestions as well. She kept me on track with all the little decisions I had to make. And when I was overwhelmed with the amount of decisions/work to be done, Brook helped to calm me down and focus my attention on just a few things to keep the process moving forward without a high stress level. Brook was able to take us from the pre-construction phase straight through to the final design elements that pull the whole project together. Her help with various trips to tile and hardware stores to pick out the finishes were incredibly helpful!! BB Designs can help with whatever type of project you are looking to do. They can do a spot design if there’s an area of a room that needs assistance, all the way up to being the first in the home getting a major renovation project started. They can help interview and then manage contractors, purchase and receive the pieces, handle the budgets, and do the final design elements and staging. BB Designs & Remodeling can offer you a turn-key renovation experience – taking the stress and headache off of you. Finally, BB Designs & Remodeling’s assistance and expertise will add value to your home – making the investment in their design experience absolutely worth it. They can handle a simple staging of your home to get it ready for the market and have it present well to potential buyers -- to making great value-added changes during a renovation that will increase its market value! I think the change to our living room alone added a wow factor that will easily translate to well over $10k when we go to sell it! I cannot recommend Brook of BB Designs & Remodeling strongly enough. She has been incredibly hard-working, detail-oriented, dedicated, creative, flexible and understanding through our various starts and stops in our project. BB Designs is a company that truly wants to make you happy in your home and their love for their works shines through – they are a joy to work with! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for help with the design and/or renovation of their home.

Collene and her True House Design team staged my 4,500 square foot house to prepare it for sale. I don't think I could have sold my home without their help! The team was fast, effective, artful, and affordable, and the house looked terrific. Moreover they were patient with my many questions and always super friendly. I can't say enough good things about my experience with True House Design.

I hired Damian and Gadi to design an addition to my mid-century contemporary house. They presented numerous options in 3-D software to better visualize the design which was extremely helpful. We never felt pressured to settle on a particular design and encourporated our requests very nicely into the final product. They are extremely easy to work with and go the extra mile to achieve the desired results. They are also extremely responsive to our questions during construction. I can't say enough, we feel extremely happy and fortunate to have hired them!

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!

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!

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!

I have to say that I used real plaster moldings throughout my house.when I went to my friend house I was pleased with crown molding and some design on her ceiling And that prompt me to look for the contrator (glamour touch home decor llc), despite my architect recommending wood and MDF. It was the best decision I made in whole project. The plaster is gorgeous-and it looks like nothing else.I 'll always be greatful for the job well done.

    Andrea and Sonia have a great taste coupled with common sense and a down-to-earth approach to interior design and home staging. All the suggestions they made were sensible and with my goal (and budget) in mind, even the ones I didn't end up implementing. Overall great value for the money.

    Homequest did an excellent job on my home projects in Washington DC. I have a 100 year old row house and Scott and Asha did a great job managing a project to build a new powder room and renovate an old walk-in closet into an modern office space. Scott and Asha were very responsive with questions throughout the project and their prices were very fair. I would have no hesitation in hiring them again on any home construction project.

    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.

    I've worked with ELEVATE Design to completely remodel my condominium and the result was not only very creative and high-end, but also very budget conscious. Very flexible, she accommodated my schedule and personality. I like high quality and nice design products and she is very knowledgeable of the market and was able to get them at amazing prices. She coordinated also the contractors, placed orders for materials and other products, so she took all that stress off my shoulders. Great experience and great value, I highly recommend this firm.

    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 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.

    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.
