At Remix we understand hiring an interior designer may be a new experience with most of our clients therefore we have gathered information on some of the most important questions clients may have. 

Do you have an hourly or room rate?

Designers almost always charge their clients by the room or by the hour. As you might expect, room structures are more concrete, since you as the client will know exactly how much the overall project will cost in terms or design fees. Some designers charge up to $200/hour, and as you can imagine, those bills can add up very quickly. The overall price will largely depend on the scope of work being preformed and the timeline of the project. According to standard interior design cost estimator, the average price hire an interior decorator is $3,816 per room with additional cost for furniture and cosmetic materials. 

At Remix we charge our design fees by the square foot of the room. This rate can run as little as $5 and can exceed to $12 depending on the work scope the project requires. This fee is determined during your comprehensive design consultation once the details are gathered in relation to the requirements of the project. Things that are taken into consideration are scope of work, project management, sourcing requirements, amount of furniture needed, project location and design layout.  

When are my fees due?

To become a client of Remix we request a 60% Fee retainer to start the design process. We then collect the materials and decor budget payment after the design concept is presented and the balance in design fees upon project wrap up. All dates will be specified in your project calendar upon your on boarding process based on the timeline confirmed. 

Do you offer designer discount fees?

Remix has established relationships with manufacturers and had direct connections with wholesale furniture retail accounts. We travel to trade shows to develop these relationships and offer our clients something different. As a result we have furniture accounts that are not shop able to the direct public. We extend our saving to our Full Design Clients by offering only a 25% markup on product purchased through the trade at whole sale pricing, standard in the industry is 50-75% above whole sale cost. Our Full Design Clients never pay retail cost for an item our Design team receives at a wholesale rate. For buyers who are not utilizing our Full Design Service package but still want parts of amazing furniture finds we can help. Find out more by contacting our design team today!! 

How long will the project take?

The length of the project depends on the following variables;

  1. How fast services are secured with the 60% project retainer
  2. How fast concepts are approved by the client and final decisions are made 
  3. Shipping Timeframe once orders are placed 
  4. Contracting timeline
