Combining Budget with Design
Many clients find it difficult to come up with a figure but without it, you’re tying one hand behind our back. Sometimes it is difficult to know what things cost, but having an idea of what you want to invest is the first step.
Without a figure that accurately reflects your intention, you’ll end up wasting money by having to do a second design fee that resembles what you intend to spend.
Decor Innovation Designs can help you understand the interior design budgeting process. We do this by helping you identify all of the elements that need to be taken into consideration along with a corresponding investment range guideline.
Here’s a checklist you can use for an overview of what’s involved in a typical interior design project:
- Flooring: ceramic tile, carpet, stained concrete slab, woods, vinyls, porcelains, natural stones. (Labor varies by type, pattern and size.)
- Wall covering: paint, wallpaper, faux finish, wainscoting, wood panel, molding detail.
- Ceiling: paint, moldings, tin ceiling, wallpaper, stucco, decorative inlays.
- Lighting: task, decorative, pots and fixtures.
- Window treatments: blinds, curtains, shades, decorative or functional.
- Furniture: tables, sofa, chairs, etc.
- Decorative accessories: artwork, mirrors, pictures, sculpture
- Fixtures: faucets, toilets, hardware, fireplaces.
- New additions: new walls, conceptual architectural elements, mill-work and built-ins.
