How do interior designers charge for their professional design time?
Hiring an interior designer is an investment that saves your time and effort.
It grants you the peace of mind while getting your renovation work done professionally in a cost-effective manner.
Currently, there is no standard guideline in the industry about how interior designers should charge. But generally there are three common formats– Hourly Fee, Flat Fee and Cost Plus.
Hourly fee means there is an hourly fee per team member, and you will be charged based on the hours taken to complete the project.
Flat Fee is when you are billed one flat fee for the scope of the work of the entire project, including the design, execution and completion of your job.
Cost Plus means a flat fee is calculated based on the percentage of the expenses for the job.
Remember to make sure you have a clear picture about the ID billing method and frequency when interviewing with prospective interior designers.
