Do you like the idea of hiring an Interior Designer but have no idea what costs are involved. Let me give you a little insight.
Most Interior Designers will offer a free discovery call. This is a quick over the phone chat to find out a little bit about your project and assess whether they can help. This is your chance to ask questions to make sure the designer is qualified and suited to your project goals. Its also important that there's a personality fit. You want to be able to talk freely, openly and communicate clearly with your designer. It will often be a long term relationship and good communication is critical to outstanding results.
These range in duration from 1 hour to 3 hours. A designer will visit your home, have a good look around and ask you questions about who lives there, how you live and what your looking to achieve. This meeting allows your designer to develop a scope of works, address any on-the-spot items and assess the priorities. Designers charge between $300-$400 for this service. They will usually provide you with some type of recommendation report for next steps at the conclusion of this meeting.
