How Much Do Interior Designers Cost?
The most common ways interior designers bill for their work: 1) by the hour, 2) cost plus, and 3) fixed fee. By the hour. Professionals will provide you an hourly rate and will typically provide you an estimate of how many hours the project will take for them to complete. Cost plus. When working on a cost plus basis, designers charge a markup (often 20%) on the items they purchase for the project. For example, if the designer obtains a couch for $800 at wholesale, they mark up the cost to $960 to cover their fee of $160 (or 20%). Fixed fee. When working on a fixed fee basis, the designer will provide you a set fixed price at the beginning of the project. A set list of tasks are included as part of the fixed rate. If additional tasks are added to the list during the project, then the fixed fee is typically increased to accommodate the additional task.
