You will want to know about our interior design fees along with some indicative project prices, which we share below. It is important to remember that our fees can pay for themselves. In their testimonials, several of our clients have remarked on the savings they have made from our trade discounts and supplier negotiation. This is in addition to the time and other savings that our service brings. In negotiating the price of a recent project for our clients, we used our experience of previous projects and our detailed understanding of the specific project to negotiate savings of over £17 000 on the construction elements alone.
Interior Design Fees
Our interior design fees and project management services are now explained in more detail. Separately, to see how much our clients set aside for a typical project budget, please read our page on how much home renovations cost.
The following will guide you on typical fees for our interior design and project management services for projects based in Bath and Bristol.
Stage 1: The initial consultation is free.
Stage 2: Our design fee starts at £650+VAT per space for a straightforward reception room or bedroom design. Kitchens and bathrooms start at £950+VAT. The actual price depends on the project’s complexity and location. We offer significant discounts when asked to design several rooms concurrently.
The price for Stage 2 covers the new floorplan (with 3D visuals), electrical overlay, and initial details of fittings, cabinetry, appliances, sanitaryware, furniture, flooring, lighting, heating, storage, paint finish, tiles, window dressing, home entertainment; everything required for the space. It also includes a technical specification, budgetary estimate and management of any competitive tender.
Stage 3: Our project management fee will be between 10-15% of the total implementation price. As a guide, our clients spend between £8000 and £20 000 on a reception room or bedroom, between £12 000 and £25 000 on a bathroom and £15 000 to £60 000 on a kitchen.
cost of home refurbishment
Whole house refurbishments are typically between £100 000 – £250 000 (although we have priced two recently in excess of £450 000). For a flat or apartment this would be around £50 000, but everything is dependent on the number of rooms, extent of works and choice of fixtures and fittings.
Before closing, it is useful to note that ours is a total service. Compared to a high street retailer who might sell you a kitchen, we also design the heating, lighting, flooring, decoration, associated building works and other factors that comprise the finished renovation. A retailer may suggest a kitchen fitter to fit the units and appliances, but you would then need to find all the other trades; by contrast, we co-ordinate all contractors and suppliers and deliver the finished scheme.
