    English - US
    It's unnecessary. You state are not sure about what she wants, which implies the "if."
    On the other hand, you could say, "I don't know if she would want to have her house painted black." "I don't know" doesn't imply any uncertainly, so the "if" is useful there.
    But no one would call you on it if you left it in. An American would say that.
