Flat Fee Structure – What Sets Us Apart

Interior design association studies show that almost 80% of clients prefer a flat fee…yet less than 10% of designers offer one.

The most uncomfortable question for clients to ask is, “What will this cost?”

Yet, this is most clients’ #1 concern. Many are afraid to contact us because they perceive interior designers are “too expensive.” Others are concerned that the fees are a mystery, their wishes won’t be met, or that they may be overcharged. Would you feel more confident in your project if you knew what the investment would be before we started?

Amy Wolff Interiors does not invoice by the hour for most projects. Instead, Amy provides an all-inclusive, flat fee based on your individual project requirements.

How does this work?

We start with an initial phone conversation – discussing your goals, dreams, wants, needs. If we agree to proceed together, we meet in-person and further assess your project. It is very important to establish an investment level that is comfortable for you as early as possible, so that we can establish a plan that works best for your situation.

This unique flat fee system saves time and adds value to your project: you don’t have to be concerned about the hourly meter running and we don’t have to devote a lot of time to paperwork. You know what “things” are going to cost and we both know how I am going to be compensated.

Purchasing Furnishings

Amy doesn’t typically sell furniture, tile, lighting, or other readily available home furnishings. You may purchase items from anyone you choose – or use Amy’s recommended vendors – who often pass designer discounts on to our clients. All components of your project will be specified in the design proposal – our compensation is based upon how much or how little service you choose – and sharing our ideas (or intellectual property) not on buying products. Amy doesn’t generally take her clients out “shopping.” Usually, we bring samples to you to view in your own environment. If there are items that require you to visit a showroom or store for final selection, we will do that in a manner that respects your time.

When fully custom items such as window treatments, light fixtures, furniture, or other furnishings are required, Amy also provides an all-inclusive fee that includes the design, materials, delivery, and installation.
