Featured Reviews for Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
Habitar Design
Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
"We used Stratagem Construction and Habitar Design to remodel my entire basement. This was by far one the best experiences I have had with a construction project in my home. The finished project was exactly what was promised and even exceeded expectations in some areas. Kapan (Habitar) listened to all of our design requests and came up with an amazing plan for our entire basement. She was able to incorporate everything that we requested - including an amazing ceiling feature. Her choices for the flooring and tile worked perfectly with the style we wanted. Kapan was extremely easy to work with and very flexible. For example, she would email me options for lighting, furniture, etc. Then we had the choice of purchasing the items ourselves or having Habitar purchase for us. I liked having options that helped us stay within our budget. Mitch (Stratagem) worked with us to come up with an architectural plan that met our needs and took into special considerations we had. The best example of this was the fireplace we wanted to install in the middle of the room. Mitch talked us through all of our options while giving his professional expertise in helping us come up with the right choice (we ended up going with an alcohol based fireplace which we never would have considered without Mitch). I cannot say enough good things about Julius and Javier (the main 2 carpenters). They were extremely polite, always punctual, and very clean. I am not sure I have met 2 carpenters who worked so hard and were so personable. They also handled mid-job requests with good humor and constantly checked to make sure that even the smallest decision was exactly what we wanted. Overall the entire construction project was an A+. I would/will hire Mitch and Kapan in the future if I have any other projects."

Anthony Michael Interior Design, Ltd.
Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
"I have had the privilege of working with Anthony on several projects over the years and have to say that his design aesthetic is second to none! He is professional, creative and a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail is simply amazing. If there was a 6 Star rating, I would had given it to Anthony."

Lisa Wolfe Design, Ltd
Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
"I have dealt with Lisa with quite few projects. From very contemporary, to nice traditional, refined spaces. Easiest person to deal with. Huge attention to details, along with great communication. Works extremely well in pressure, and gets everything done right away. I can honestly say that I haven't really dealt with anyone as involved in their projects as Lisa. Personal attention is what really makes a difference. Without a doubt, i would recommend Lisa Wolfe Design to anyone that is either remodeling small room, or building a whole new house. I'm sure that she can exceed your expectations, and some."

"I met with Marissa on a day where everything could've went wrong, but she made everything right. I don't have a designing bone in my body, and she provided so much hope and clarity during our session. Her expertise in designing any space is amazing. I am looking forward to working with her again in the near future, and showing off my new space."

Summer Thornton Design, Inc
Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
"I cannot adequately put into words how pleased I am with Summer and the rest of the team at Summer Thornton Design, but I'll give it a shot... I am a bit of a control freak - some may even claim I have a mild case of OCD. Needless to say, the thought of turning over control of my recent home remodel made my stomach a bit uneasy. That feeling disappeared 10 minutes into my first meeting with Summer - I immediately knew I was making the right decision. The level of attention her team puts into EVERY last detail was amazing (even to me). My home is now finished and the end result is stunning. I have lived in the completed home for a year now and I still smile from ear to ear every time I walk through the door. Summer and her team delivered a home that was beyond what I had ever dreamed possible. While this project is complete, the friendships gained will last a lifetime. Assuredly, there will be a different house and another project. I relish the opportunity to work with Summer Thornton Design in the future!"

Design Inside - Chicago
Interior Designers and Decorators in Chicago, IL
"I've worked with Design Inside on multiple occasions now, they're fantastic. From picking paint colors, to hanging art, arranging furniture and even adding a new bar area in the basement. From start to finish the Design Inside team has an incredible design style, is very very respectful of budget and are great communicators. I personally really enjoy interior design and the team worked with my tastes and opinions very openly, a great experience. I will work with Design Inside again in the future, there's no doubt.

What does an interior designer do?


A good home design professional will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. Interior design companies can be involved as much or as little as the client desires. Many clients who hire an interior decorator in Chicago, IL — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that interior decorators use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. An interior design company will need to figure out exactly what the client needs, which includes organizing rooms, picking flooring and wall colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means he or she will have to recruit help from other Chicago, IL home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of interior designers & decorators: Architects & Building Designers, General Contractors, Home Builders, Design-Build Firms, Photographers.

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or home decorator in Chicago, IL. Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick an interior decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different Chicago interior design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There's a big difference! You can find more interior designers & decorators in Cicero, Arlington Heights, Evanston, Schaumburg and Palatine.

Questions to ask when you meet with local Chicago interior designers:


  • Can you give me a referral? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who's worked with the designer before.)
  • Can I see your design portfolio?
  • When will the home renovation be done?
  • Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?
