Very professional. Very nice. Organizing the pickup was extremely easy. After James and his partner had placed the oven in their truck, I asked for a quote on painting the interior of our house. They had no problem doing it, even though I had not previously mentioned this request. Would definitely use again!

I had Shane and Justin build a custom cabinet/entertainment center around my fireplace with the TV mounted already on top of the fireplace. Let me say this that Shane and Justin did an absolutely awesome job custom building these cabinets and installing them. The cabinets look great and I had asked them to trim the edges of the fireplace mantle to give it that flushed look. The end result looks great! the finished product is awesome. I had requested that they built 42 inch cabinets in the base with glass doors for my entertainment equipment to be place within the cabinets. They were able to custom fit everything when I had asked. I also had requested that they built crown molding around cabinets at the top and base board for the bottom. The crown molding in my house is double crown molding and Shane was able to custom make the second crown molding. I am completely satisfied with Shane and Justin's work and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for carpentry work. The price was great the work was perfect and they were able to get all the tiny details complete and accurate. They are very professional in the work they do and keep the work area clean. In addition, they cleaned everything after themselves and left the work area spotless. Thank you Shane and Justin for the great work!

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.

Kessa at Strictly In Style was, to put it simply, amazing. I was moving and needed to get my house ready to go on the market - but I didn't even know where to start. I was stressed out about the whole process. Kessa came in and immediately made sense of my disorganization. She de-cluttered the house, freshened it up with a modern look and accessories, and depersonalized it so potential buyers could see themselves living there. My real estate agent had an open house, and was extremely pleased with the staging and mentioned that many of the people who came to view the home made really positive comments about the look and style of the decor. The house ended up under contract in just two days. I was so happy with the results that Kessa and Strictly In Style helped me achieve through the staging and sale of my home. I would definitely recommend Kessa for anyone else looking to sell their home, quickly, and without all the stress of getting it ready to show!

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!

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.

She came up with an excellent design scheme, and collaborated with me on the Winter Wonderland theme to come up with a beautiful color scheme and great ideas for food, gift bags and decor.

This was the second time we placed our home on the market and we were determined to do a better job. So we planned more thoughtfully and specifically. Our realtor recommended Mannie. From our first meeting, I knew we had made the right choice. As we walked through the house, she suggested changes and/or updates we should make to give the house a fresher, more current look. Recommended paint colors, even details like cabinet pulls! Once the house was prepped, the real magic happened with the staging. Our house looked like a model home! Mannie responded quickly to questions and concerns. Her staff expertly executed the process and our house was under contract in 2 days! If you are selling your home, call The Staging Fashionista. You'll be glad you did.

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!

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.

Sophisticated. Comfortable. Beautiful. Unique. That’s the magic that Arsheen brought to my living room and I am incredibly grateful for her hard work and vision for making it happen. I was looking at my living room last spring and wondering, for what seemed liked the 1000th time whether it would ever look like a cohesive space. My husband and I had purchased our home at the end of 2013, and I’d always intended to get new furniture and make over the space. But between a wedding, pregnancy, new baby and our hectic work schedules (and life), the only thing I’d managed to do is get the downstairs painted. I finally accepted that I needed some help, and put out a call for designers on Thumbtack. I had several replies, but Arsheen’s pitch was the one that appealed to me due to her unique background (architect originally from India), portfolio with some updated midcentury modern touches and professional demeanor. When Arsheen and I got started, I filled out a questionnaire and she asked me at what I wanted. I told her something like: “I love midcentury modern..but not all of it..just Swedish midcentury modern. I need sleek lines. Plus Africa, India and Mexico to reflect my travels. And lots of colors—orange, blue, purple—but not too much color. And pictures of my family. And I hate sectionals but you can show me some anyway as long as they’re not made of leather. And I would like to have a space for our little one’s toys without said toys dominating the entire room.” (Note: I’m probably forgetting some of my many requests here. I have to be honest, had I heard that seemingly contradictory laundry list of requests from a client, I would have run for the hills! But that’s why I’m not an interior designer.) To her credit, Arsheen didn’t flinch. She delivered a couple of different floor plans that made great use the space, brought in (modern) midcentury flair and gave me the rich colors I was asking for without it being over the top. To my surprise, I quickly realized that the sectional she had proposed was a much better fit for the space and my current lifestyle. (Most importantly, it wasn’t leather!) After a number of iterations, we settled on a design that had neutral, solid colored accent chairs (dark blue) but brought in more colors (orange, more blues) without going over the top. The lines of sectional were midcentury-inspired, and she also brought those touches in with the legs of sectional, the chairs, and my unique coffee table. The rug and Roman shades also have Indian-inspired designs on them. It’s also worth mentioning the fixtures and related elements. While I was a little doubtful at first, she swapped out the original fan for a sleek and modern one. Honestly, it’s easily the fixture with the greatest benefit/cost ratio—it has completely opened up the room. She also recommended a new fireplace mantle and creating a new fireplace frame. I really couldn’t figure out what it was going to look like, even with the drawing, but I just went with it, and it looks amazing. It’s so much more modern than the original. Even my handyman was surprised at the difference those two additions made. (Note: Arsheen works with a wide variety of vendors, but is more than willing to work with your preferred vendors. If we had an issue with any vendor, Arsheen worked overtime to make sure it was corrected as soon as possible.) When the time came to put everything together, I was nervous. How would all of the great elements come together? Well, I need not have worried. Arsheen managed to pull together all of the things that I mentioned above (the new), plus photos and momentoes from my travels to Mexico, Ghana, India and other countries, and a gallery wall of family portraits. And it’s everything I could have wanted. It’s gorgeous and sophisticated, yet, I still feel comfortable flopping down in front of my newly wall-mounted television and doing my hair. My husband was impressed by the great ‘blend of form and function’ and my notoriously picky family and friends have raved about the design. Our little one has a toy trunk (courtesy of Target!) that keeps all of the toys organized and out of the way. And now I’m happy and proud to have people come to visit. Arsheen doesn’t just create rooms, she creates experiences for you to enjoy if you place your trust in her. I did, and I’m so glad I took the leap. Hire her—you won’t regret 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
