Cost to Hire an Interior Designer

How much does it cost to hire an interior designer?

The costs associated with hiring an interior designer will vary quite dramatically from job to job. One homeowner may ask for help with their entire home, while another wants some professional assistance in the family room. The American Society of Interior Designers stresses that there is “no such thing as a ‘typical’…fee for an interior designer”. They do indicate that most professionals will charge in one of four ways:

  • Cost plus – this is a somewhat traditional method used in all types of assignments. In this approach, the designer purchases all of the materials for the job (including furnishings and accessories) and sells them to their client at an agreed upon markup or additional percentage. This percentage is the method by which the designer is paid for their work. A sample scenario would include:
    • Consultation with designer on a

Interior Designer Interview Questions

Interior Designer Interview Questions

Interior designers work to create internal spaces that are both visually appealing and practical. Apart from an innate artistic creativity, a diploma in interior design is typical. You may want to initially screen for experience, unless you are looking to fill a junior role.

It is a good idea to ask candidates to bring a portfolio with samples of their work at an interview. Ask about their approaches at each project and issues they encountered. You can also give them an assignment where they have to demonstrate expertise in specific areas (e.g. materials selection). This may prove helpful when you are trying to discover if they are a good fit for your position.

Designer Decorating Tips for Common Design Mistakes — One Kings Lane

This bright, cheery room does lighting right: Twin lamps and sconces help soften overhead lighting.

This bright, cheery room does lighting right: Twin lamps and sconces help soften overhead lighting.

THE PITFALL: Unflattering, overhead-only lighting.

THE FIX: “A balanced lighting plan will eliminate shadows and cast an even glow throughout the room. Overhead lights are fine when there’s also light coming from other heights, like a pair of sconces or lamps. I also use dimmers on all lighting to control the mood.”—Jen Going of Jen Going Interiors 

This gorgeous gray sofa provides the perfect anchor for epic wall art.

This gorgeous gray sofa provides the perfect anchor for epic wall art.

THE PITFALL: Centering art on the wall rather than orienting it around the furniture.

THE FIX: “Art should relate to what’s in the space more than the space itself. One way to do this is to hang the art near the back of the sofa. And personally, I prefer the art be off center than on.”—Philip Gorrivan of Philip Gorrivan Design
