03: How do interior designers charge? With Jane Ledger
Show Notes

In this episode, Jane Ledger starts to unpack the question all interior design clients want to know: how much is an interior designer going to charge me? You’ll learn more about:

  • Two of the main methods of charging - flat fees and hourly rate
  • How a designer assesses a flat fee, including scope of work, size and scale of your project and level of skill and time involved
  • How long it can take to complete elements of a project; often longer than you think! Designers are managing many moving parts behind the scenes that clients often don’t see
  • The difference between hourly and fixed fees 
  • How Jane phases her flat fees: Phase 1 design fee for conceptualisation, design, documentation and presentation to you. Phase 2 fees for procurement and implementation
  • How flat fees are dealt with in a reno vs furnishings project vs new build
  • How Jane manages her trade discounts with clients
