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!

I highly recommend the design services provided by Trait Interior’s Kelley Rucker. Decorating can be stressful, but Kelley made it as stress free as possible with her down-to-earth approach, positive outlook, up-beat personality, eager nature, and responsive communication. Kelley is one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. She treated me like a friend instead of a client. She looked out for me every step of the way and had my best interest at heart during our consultation, shopping trips, and design implementation. Kelley listened intently, did her research, and took immediate action. She was ready to hit the ground running! It was refreshing that Kelley came up with a plan to tackle my design issues, sent me a course of action, and delivered. She even drove me around town during the shopping sessions and used her creative thinking and determination to overfill her car with large shopping items. She was right there at the store taking items apart and putting them back together at my home. Kelley was also accommodating and generous with her time and suggestions. Additionally, she is cost conscious and value oriented. If you have a budget, she will stick to it! Kelley loves what she does and her excitement for her work is infectious. No one else I spoke with showed the same kind of enthusiasm for my project as Kelley did. It’s important to feel like you are a priority when you want to accomplish a project, and Kelley made me a priority. I believe Kelley offers free phone and in home consultations, so you have nothing to lose by giving her a call.

Yosif from Smart House Remodeling installed a shower door that I had purchased from Home Depot. The price was competitive with the other Thumbtack bids, but the deciding factor was that Yosif was willing to do the work on this small project during the weekend. I didn't have to be out from work. It did take a little longer than I expected to get the door installed. But this was because the door's design made it difficult to get the door to hang correctly on the pivot hinges This problem was the door's design rather than Yosif's work. I really appreciate the fact that he worked until he got the door installed correctly. If I ever have other home improvement projects, I would definitely consider using Smart House Remodeling again.

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.

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 family moved into our home a few years back and finally got the chance to update the living and dining room. Danielle was amazing at using the perfect blends of color for the walls, and picking the best decor and furniture pieces that brought our rooms to life! I would definitely recommend her for interior design and painting services!

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!

Paula has helped us with a variety of interior design projects throughout our entire house. While constructing our current house, Paula visualized placement of existing furniture, and helped select interior paint colors so transitioning from room to room was seamless. Once we moved in, she worked with us first to design our family room and kitchen. The results were stunning, and we get so many compliments. When we were ready, we moved on to the dining room and living room, where Paula helped select window treatments, area rugs, as well as reupholster some of my favorite pieces in updated fabrics. We are so happy. Not only does our house look polished, it is all being done on our time frame and budget. We can't wait to begin our next project. Thank you, Paula!

Hubert helped me with the project of turning my empty apartment into a cool, contemporary home that fit my style and gave me a real "home base" for the next phase of my life. Hubert literally managed the process from beginning to end. He walked the empty apartment with me before I even signed the lease in order to take measurements and start formulating ideas for his transformation. He came back to me over the next month or so with ideas ranging from paint colors to furniture and accessories. I very much appreciated his thoughtful approach. He knew I was a busy professional, so he would meet with me at my office, in the evenings, to review various selections with me. He sometimes presented me with options that I honestly would probably have never even considered. That's what I enjoyed the most - seeing new things from a fresh perspective that ultimately fit together beautifully. Hubert managed the entire process right down to coordinating (and being at the apartment when I couldn't be there) and taking delivery of the items. He went above and beyond the call of duty and the proof is in the final product (http://www.hgtv.com/living-rooms/cool-contemporary-bachelor-pad/index.html). Thanks Hubert. Do not hesitate to use me as a reference. You have my 100% endorsement.

I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Wheeler over a number of years as my design partner at Model Home Interiors. Together we managed, among other projects, the entire Upstate NY Ryan Homes account designing model homes in Rochester, Syracuse & Buffalo. Punctuality comes with responsiveness and she managed our budgets superbly. Our designs were completed on time, to budget repeatedly. Her outstanding design skills are comprehensive and thought-through with the ability to adapt to any tastes or looks a client could want. I highly recommend her.

    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.

    Collene was fantastic to work with. I was selling my condo on my own, and Collene took on this staging assignment at the very last minute. She spent a good amount of time with me initially talking through how the rooms would be set up and showed me pictures of other places she had staged. When we received feedback from a few potential buyers that the living space was awkward (which I knew from living there!), Collene made a few switches. She also made herself available to be at our open house. Collene was communicative and professional and so easy to work with.

Will recommend her services to friends and family that may need it.

    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.
