Hire fixers separately or hire one contractor to lead the work?

If I need plumbing, painting, electrical, HVAC work and carpentry work done on my newly purchased home, is it better to hire one contractor for all the work or just find a separate painter, electrician, HVAC guy etc? I am a first time home buyer, so sorry if this is an obvious question.

One bathroom needs a total re-do (for which I plan to hire a design-build firm) and the rest of the things are little things spread throughout the house with the exception of painting of each room. I have a bad back and can't do painting myself. Please let me know what you think, based off of your own experiences. I haven't yet moved in, the home is vacant but I am eager to moved the work along so I can move in without having to deal with dust and mess.
