DESIGN SERVICES & FEES

 

THERE ARE THREE MAIN WAYS THAT AN INTERIOR DESIGNER BILLS FOR THEIR SERVICES. 

  SMW DESIGN SERVICES ARE BASED ON ONE SIMPLE RULE; HOW MUCH TIME WILL BE NEEDED OF ME.   HERE ARE THE THREE WAYS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE ENGAGEMENT OF MY DESIGN SERVICES.

 

HOURLY​

 

The hourly rate design fee style only works for very small projects or small consulation projects such as; shopping assistance, color coordination and space planning.  My hourly rate is customized for each project and is established after my initial free consultatiom. 

 

FLAT FEE

 

This is the most popular and widely used form of payment for design services.

After the free consulation, there is one number given for the entire project which will be broken down into progress payments with a schedule submitted by SMW.  the reason for its popularity is that it gives the client two things.  a. They are totally aware from the start how much my fees will amount to and b. They can stop it at any progress payment point thereby allowing themselves to feel in control of their budget .

 

COST PLUS PERCENTAGE

 

This form of desisn fee payment is a mutually agreed upon percentage rate above cost for all purchased items including labor costs.  This is best for large projects that will be performed over a longer period of time.

 

I hope that this outline has answered your questions.  In my three decades of designing experience, I have found that with all design fee formats "Keeping it Simple" is the best and most fair way for all parties involved.
