Hourly Rate for Services

Fine Designed Interiors charges an hourly rate of $150 per hour for consultation fees.  It is used for design assessment, design advise, direction assurance, or peace of mind to make sure you are on the right track with all the design details.  At that point you have a choice to complete your project armed with the best design plan and advise for DIY or take the worry and stress of your plate and hire Fine Designed Interiors for Full Design Services to handle the entire project from finish to completion.





Full Design Service

Whether you need a Residential or Commercial space renovation, Kitchen Design, Bath Design, or Whole house renovation, Fine Designed Interiors is there for you! 

For each project a contract is implemented that outlines the scope of work to be completed and retainer costs.  Commencement of work begins once you approve and move forward with a retainer contract. The contract/Letter of Agreement states what is to be completed in the scope of work, areas of work, purchasing structure, retainer costs, and important information on working together.

This is an overall project flow detailing how decisions and design work cohesively work together throughout the project.  

​1.  Preliminary Initial Meeting/Programming

3.  Design Development (DD)

Refining Solutions and Developing Details

The design direction has been refined, solidified and is being finalized. Room layouts, materials, interior finishes, wall coverings, color selections, cabinetry millwork, furnishings, lighting, accessories, and preliminary pricing is completed.

You can expect two potential meetings in this phase to finalize design, preliminary space planning, floor plan, elevations, and furnishings.
