How to Hire an Interior Designer on a Budget

 Casa Watkins Living

As a decorating enthusiast, one of the most common questions I’m asked by friends in nesting mode is “Where can I find an affordable _________ for my home?” It’s fairly easy to answer: flea markets, vintage shops, and a few of my go-to budget-friendly retailers.

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:
