We hired Erik Johnsen of The Fantasy Workshop to complete several jobs for us before we put our house on the market. He was incredibly helpful in identifying what he thought should and could get done in a day's time. He was able to help us complete these projects quite quickly, as we were under a tight timeline. As promised, he was punctual and incredibly efficient. He arrived to our house early, ready to get down to work. He changed out our old kitchen faucet, fixed the hinges on two doors (returning the doors to full functioning capacity), repaired a wood bench, painted the risers on our stairs, and painted our door. He also fixed several light fixtures in the house. This is work that would have cost us quite a bit of time to do ourselves, and we would not have done it with the care or attention that Erik provided. Our house looks polished and ready for a listing. Finally, he is a kind person and his prices were incredibly fair. I would use him again for any job. I strongly recommend him to anyone needing looking for a painter or handyman. I only regret that we are moving, and won't be able to use him again in the future.

We have worked with Ann on 5 different projects in 3 different states. She is so talented, that I seriously would not consider working with anyone else. She is not just an 'interior decorator.' Ann understands construction, and how things are supposed to work. She meets with the carpenters and discusses why something should be built a certain way. She is a master at color. She has resources so what you end up with is not predicable, cookie-cutter stuff. She understands spaces, dimensions, comfort, utility, lighting, bathrooms, kitchen design, aesthetics and how thing should flow. She works tirelessly to get things done on time. She is fun to be around and always finds joy in working on something special. Her work is homey, upscale, practical, elegant, comfortable, functionable, unique and desirable. There is nothing predictable about the outcome of a project and it doesn't look like everyone else's copy cat style. Her work should be featured in every magazine possible. People rave about my homes and the way they feel when they come inside, because there is nothing like it and it feels like home. She is smart, articulate, creative, flexible, and honest. There is a no-nonsense attitude when required, and she is a pleasure to work with.

Bruce laid wooden floors in three rooms(living, dining, and family rooms)in our home. We were very pleased with the end results. He seemed to take a lot of pride in his work.

Tom did a great job in improving the curb appeal of my house and also gave me some additional ideas to further increase it. I hope to have him do additional work as it gets closer to putting my home on the market. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

Leticia staged our cape cod home in Troy, NY. It was spectacular. She decorated the living room in a very formal colonial style, the kitchen had a very modern feel while the bedroom was traditional. By displaying all of these different looks she made it so that a perspective buyer could see their style of furniture in the house. We received a really good offer within a couple of weeks of her staging our home. Leticia was wonderful to work with and I would recommend her highly. Barbara Meesig

The project was to design a kitchen in new construction re-using cabinets from a home that had done a new kitchen and sold perfectly fine cherry solid wood cabinets made in the late 90's. Jonni figured out how to do it, minimizing waste and taking our preferences seriously. She is timely and responsive when doing a job.

I originally hired Erik to install a fence around my yard. His work ethic, quality of work and trustworthiness had lead my family to have him complete multiple other projects both small and large. We have had him do multiple electrical jobs such as running new electric underground and smaller stuff like hanging chandeliers, install water lines, fix foundation / masonry work, redo ceilings, framing and Sheetrock rock in multiple locations and lead abatement. Erik will continue to be hired by my family. He is great at problem solving situations in my old 1800s Victorian. I am thankful to have met an honest guy who I trust to be at my house when nobody is home.

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.
