What Do Your Interior Design Makeover Services Cost?


What Do I Get For My Inital FREE Meeting ...

Step 1:
As there are many fears and misunderstandings around the different way interior designers charge for what appears to be a similar service.... an important part of my work ethic is to offer you a no-obligation first meeting for FREE at your home (within the Auckland metro area).

I generally don’t take any product or prep for the first meeting because without seeing the space I don’t know what it is that I should be recommending.

We will discuss your project and ideas. I will take photos of the room(s), make notes and then explain in general terms how I can help you achieve your goal(s): whether it be to spruce up your home with a modern make over, look at updating furnishings & drapes, or discuss the possibility for the necessity to change internal or external spaces which would require additional Architectural /engineering input.

Consultation Fees ...
Step 2:
Assuming you are comfortable with working with me, then we would then arrange for a consultation back on site to discuss the project further.

Prior to meeting I would prepare some informal sketches and then at the meeting present informal sketches to show ideas & design of your new 'space'.My initial consultation fee is $150.00 + gst per hour pro rata deductible against design fee upon commission. Allow approximately 3-4 hours for this step of the process.

Interior Design Fee: Varies according to room size and scope of works, and is detailed in a letter following the inital briefing meeting. The Interior design fee covers the sourcing of fabrics, wall coverings, flooring, acquisition of samples and intial design drawings.

You may choose to implement the design ideas I have provided yourself at this stage. The design materials and drawings supplied will facilitate this.

Contract vs Hourly Rate...
Step 3:
At this point a decision is made by yourself.
Hourly rate: As we go forward from this point and appoint / engage with sub-contractors I can work an hourly rate of $150 + gst/hour; however as it is very hard to gauge how many hours are involved in most jobs; it is usually many many more than you would initially think! 99% of my clients choose the option below...

% Fee of total job: Majority of clients tend to opt for this option. We sign a contract that details exactly what my obligations to you are as a professional. I detail exactly what is happening in each part of the project, managing the job from beginning to end - finding suitable trustworthy sub-contractors (if required), supervising said subscontractors, and supply of materials (fabrics, wallpapers, furniture, accessories, floor coverings etc) at competitive prices. Delivery charges incurred are charged on to the client at cost. My fee is currently 20% of the Probable Project Construction Cost.

So, where to from here?
