  • How much does an interior designer cost?

    The average interior designer cost in the UK can vary massively, depending on the size and scope of the interior designer project. Interior designer prices also depend on the level of involvement that they will have in your interior design project.

    As a guide, you can expect to pay somewhere in the region of £50 - £150 per hour for a professional interior designer. However, if you’re hiring them to coordinate the interior styling for a full renovation you may be quoted a price as a percentage of the overall cost of the interior design project – usually around 8-10%.

    Due to the nature of interior design, there is no one fixed price or rate. That’s why it’s important to speak to local interior designers to get a better understanding of what you want to achieve and which of their services you need to hire them for.

    Other interior design prices

    You might find that some interior designers focus on a specific area of interior, such as kitchens or lighting. For example, a lighting design plan for a 3-bed house can range from £400 to £5,000 – depending on the scope and complexity of the project.

    To find out more about prices, check out our guides to kitchen design costs and lighting design costs.

    Quotes for interior designer costs

  • How do you design a house interior?

    There’s no single way to design a house interior, as it will depend on your home and which spaces you’re planning to design - or redesign. That said, we’ve put together a quick step-by-step guide to help you plan your interior design project.

    1. Understand the space you’re working with by asking yourself a few questions:

    2. Who will be using the space?

    3. What do I want to achieve with the new design?

    4. How do I want to use the space?

    5. Make a list of your key requirements so that you have a clear idea of exactly what you want to achieve, and separate the list into a) absolute must-haves, and b) nice-to-haves (that you would be willing to omit if needed)

    6. Set yourself a budget so that you (and your interior designer) know how much you have to spend – and then divide your budget for each room (if you’re designing multiple spaces)

    7. Create a mood board of interiors, colours, patterns, furniture, and other designs that you like the look and feel of and would like to use for inspiration for your interior design

    8. Hire a professional to plan the space and create a design that take into consideration all aspects of the designs, including electrical and plumbing points, lighting, layouts, and ceiling heights

    9. Source all the furniture and materials to bring the design to life, making sure that you check on leads times for ordering large or bespoke items of furniture

    10. Hire professional painters and decorators to do the legwork and decorate your home safely and efficiently, and to a professional standard
