Home owners are often unclear how to work with an interior decorator or interior designer. This interior design Fee Schedule should answer some of your questions:
Retail based fees
Unlike the majority of interior designers and decorators we do not charge an hourly fee. Our compensation is derived from the difference of the suggested retail prices established by the manufacturer and the cost of their goods. Decorating Den Interiors allows us to purchase directly from manufacturers which is why we can offer our services without the hourly fee, thus saving you considerably. We select and purchase products for your design — we do not go shopping at stores.
Each decorating project we undertake, whether a single room or the whole home, is based on a budget that is agreed on before the design process starts. This way you always know how much you are spending. You may want to start with updating your home with wallpaper and some new pillows and art. Or you may want to redecorate a complete room. Whatever the project, we will work with you on a realistic budget.
If you are building a new home
If you are considering building a new home, we can work with you to help you make the myriad choices that are involved with a new build. You are normally given one day to view your options, then one day to make final choices for your new home. This can be quite daunting, so before they are locked in by your builder let us be there at your side as a sounding board and to help you with your choices. For an hourly rate of $125.00 we will guide you with:
|• choosing cabinetry for kitchen and bathrooms
• discussing the benefits of quartz or granite countertops
• helping with choices for tile, faucets and lighting
• assist with flooring choices
• help with paint choices
