If you want quality work you will have to pay. being cheap will get you cheap work.
If you want design services go to Expo Design center. They will do full design services for you (product and labor). They are very good, but expensive. But I think you are probably looking for someone hanging out outside around Home Depot. In which case, cant help there.
Bathrooms: Need your advice, please!
We just bought a house and are completely overhwelmed with the amount of updating we have to do. I would like to ask you for an advice regarding bathrooms.
The house is only a few years old, but only the cheapest Home-depot like fixtures/hardware was used everywhere. I would love to make it look good and update the house as I go along. The hardware in all bathrooms is stainless steel with gold (yes, ugly gold). The shower heads, etc --EVERYTHING is gold. There are tile floors. No tile on the walls. In terms of vanities, it is just the cheap white simpe kohler pedestal sink (no actual vanities or cabinets of any kind) with the ugly stainless steel and gold faucet, hardware
My experiences with designers
Maybe you can go to the web site for HGTV and find someone in your area. I've worked with various designers and had a variety of experiences. The very best was with someone who lives in Benicia and works with William Lyons homes in the East Bay. You can probably find her by visiting the latest William Lyons home development and going to their design center.
What has worked best for me other than Jill was going to lots of open houses -- especially new houses, where the designers have lots of $$$ to spend. I sit in the rooms, and see how I feel with the colors and the design.
