Very professional and fair prices. Amlak was hired to design and remodel our beach house interior in VA beach and it took them less than a week to complete the major remodel. They went way above and beyond. I would definitely recommend using them.

I worked with Lubbi Saed, who arrived right on time and got right to work with me. She listened and really heard me, understood immediately exactly what I'm trying to achieve, and made excellent suggestions. She is knowledgeable and professional, and offered before I even asked that home design is her passion and loves to help clients feel comfortable, uplifted and inspired in their homes. She exceeded my expectations and I'm thrilled that I found this company.

The Help Squad was called in at the last minute to complete the interior design of a new construction single family home. Their dedication to this job and their eye for detail proved to be amazing. The interior of this new home was absolutely gorgeous and awe inspiring. They were also able to keep the project under budget. Nothing but great service from the Help Squad!

Working with Anne on my redesigning my home has been absolutely wonderful! She is certainly creative and passionate about what she does. She is enthusiastic, detail orientated, and dependable. She took the time to understand my family's style, as well as what would make sense (and be functional!) in a 5 person household. She took several pieces of traditional furniture we already owned and incorporated them with new modern pieces to create a fresh and inviting look throughout my home. She helped us select a color palette, furniture, and decor based on my eclectic style. As an added bonus, which allowed us to stay under budget, she was able to find reasonably priced furniture and accessories, and to create framed and matted artwork, based on our family's interests. She focused on creating a home that was beautiful, personal, and best of all, affordable! Anne was wonderful and I will definitely be recommending her to everyone I know, as well as using her in any future projects! A+++

Wow...what can I say about Deanna Bloomer. True Professional. On a moments notice she accommodated some clients who were here for just a few days and she was amazing!! She has the innate ability to quickly connect with a client, understand their needs and deliver options to suit their design concept. Deanna Bloomer is someone I would highly recommend.

Peggy is not your average decorator! She is exceptional! I have worked with a number of others and here's how she's different: she decorates in your style, not hers - she is a detail person and thinks of every possible thing needed to complete a look - she coordinates and follows up with every person needed to finish a job (upholsterers, carpenters, painters, seamstresses) and keeps you informed of where things stand with them - she has many connections and knows who's best in any area - she stays withing a budget. AND she has a delightful personality, so working with her is a joy.

Your new home will be your most beautiful and functional yet when Downsize Designs provides interior design services, as little or as much as you need.

Moves for seniors and downsizers are a specialty. We help you plan what to take, and we get rid of all the stuff. We offer free initial consultations. We have been serving Southeastern Virginia since 2006. We are a member of NASMM (nasmm.org).

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.
