Interior Design Fees

Many fears and misunderstandings are generated by the different way interior designers charge for what appears to be a similar service. An important part of Adrienne's policy is to offer a no-obligation first meeting that is completely free of charge.

Interior Design Consultancy

Adrienne offers a design consultancy service at £110.00 per hour pro rata based on your requirements. This can range from advice on hanging pictures, paint colours, new furniture, new curtains, to advice on full room schemes.

Full Design Package

For maximum flexibility Adrienne incorporates two break points in her Design Package fee structure. This allows you to determine precisely the level of involvement Adrienne has in your project.

The following interior design fee structure is for residential and commercial clients.

Design Stage
Initial Meeting - £110.00 per hour pro rata deductible against design fee upon commission.

Interior Design Fee: Varies according to room size and scope of works, and is detailed in a letter following the initial briefing meeting. The interior design fee covers the sourcing of fabrics, wallcoverings, flooring, acquisition of samples and initial design drawings..

Break point - You may choose to implement the designs yourself at this stage. The design materials and drawings supplied will facilitate this.

Building and Decorating Specifications - Once the design is approved the client has the option to commission full building and decorating specifications for each room. These are highly desirable documents used to detail the works required to the contractor for quotation purposes and to guide the activities of the contractor during the project itself. A quote is provided based on the scope of works.

Break point - From this point you are well equipped to find, appoint and manage your own contractor.

Co-ordination of Contractors: Adrienne Chinn can offer Project Co-ordination on projects valued under £500,000 at a fee of £110.00 per hour pro rata.
