Recent Review: Arcbazar offers a very unique service. I was looking for some interior design ideas for a new home. There are many interior designer's that offer consultation services. They provide color options, ideas for furniture etc. Whats cool about arcbazar, however, is that it works based on a competition that you create on their website. Instead of getting one designer providing you one concept, you get multiple submissions from different interior designers. I created a competition to provide interior design ideas for my family room/kitchen area. I ended up getting 13 different design ideas. What I was impressed with was the quality of some of the submissions. Many of the designers submitted full color 3 dimensional layouts that made it a lot easier to visualize the design. They also provided a list of furniture, paint and accessory options. Overall I was very pleased with the results. Just be aware that you have to be reasonable about your award amount. You cant enter something like $50 and ask for a full interior design of your whole house. When creating your competition the website will give you a suggested award amount. This suggested award is based on the square feet of the area you wish to design. My only gripe with the service was their website. It's a bit rough around the edges and at times their site was very slow. Sometimes it could be frustrating to use. The only reason I didnt give the service all A's.

Molaia Design took the time to understand our design taste and needs. We were provided options for and guided through the selection process in a way that resulted in rooms that suited our tastes and were functional, useful to our needs. We were extremely pleased with the results for each of the rooms. Molaia was responsive, prompt to our meetings and moved the process along so our projects were completed in the timely manner. Molaia also helped coordinate a painter that did excellent work. We would recommend Molaia to anyone looking for interior design services.

What he did do was very acceptable I just don't have the time to schedule or reschedule as I work everyday (m-sat) and don't understand the lack of wanting to gett the job done.

I cannot say enough good things about Aleks and his crew, and it is my pleasure to give them an "A" rating in every category. We started the project with a fairly long list, and the list continued to grow as the work progressed. I have worked with contractors in the past, and I have often experienced resistance to "added work." Not with Aleks. His response was always the same: "No problem." This is our weekend home, so we would usually only see Aleks when we arrived toward the end of their work day on Fridays. The entire crew is very polite and professional.(How often does an entire crew shake your hand as they are leaving?) Over the weekend we would come up with a list of items for Aleks to take a look at or address and email it to him on Sunday night. Without fail, by the following Friday, all of the things on the list were addressed. They made sure the place was cleaned for our arrival and even limited themselves to the use of only one of the bathrooms so the others could be kept pristine. When I first met with Aleks, he was very up front that he could not start the work for a few months. He explained he did it that way because once he started the project, he wanted to be able to dedicate his crew to our project alone. He was true to his word, and his crew was there every weekday from the start of the project to the end. Communications with Aleks, mostly via text, were always polite, professional, and prompt (even on weekends, when I ought not to have been bothering him). I will (and already have) recommended Aleks and AMV Interiors to friends and neighbors, and I would (and will) hire him and his crew again in the future.

I discovered that my home was in need of much repair and updating. Some projects were necessary to maintain structural and functional integrity, but some things I choose to do for comfort and looks. Overall I had an excellent experience. The contractor stayed within the budget as quoted. Before changes were made either in the project or with project materials, costs were discussed and agreed upon. All electrical and building inspections/permits were obtained and coordinated by the contractor and each project passed inspection the first time. Timing of projects could sometimes be delayed, however, these delays or changes were discussed and alternative schedules were agreed up. The structural repairs were always complete on time or early. Some of my upgrades were delayed due to either product availability or scheduling. I was fortunate as I was not in too much of a rush to complete some things and was able to work effectively with my contract to arrange agreeable completion times. This was very beneficial to me as I was somewhat limited in funding availability. Payment arrangements were always discussed and I was given ample time to gather the necessary resources to fund my projects. I did give a deposit to cover materials, however I was never asked for payments beyond work that was already completed. The workmanship of all of my projects goes beyond excellent. Contractor promptly rectified and/or repaired or changed any areas I was not please with - which was only two items (no added cost-based on the original plans and agreements). Both workers were always prompt, pleasant, courteous and respected my home and property. They cleaned up every day upon the complete of each day's work so I did not have to struggle with any messes. This contractor was not the cheapest quote, however, he came with high recommendations, is a local contractor and guarantees his work. The end result of my projects always exceeded my expectations and I feel I got a great value for my money.
