The Interior Design Business
Ironclad Fee Proposals
Susie and Jeff are joined by Charles Leon of Leon Black, a Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design, to examine the fee proposal.
As a designer, your fee proposal should speak volumes about you, your approach to design and your practice.
Typically, it’s the first piece of written information that your client will ever receive from you. It should showcase your professionalism and present you as the safe pair of hands who they can trust to complete their project. Most importantly of all, it should clearly set out the design services that are included for the stated fee.
But how should you put a fee proposal together? What assumptions and exclusions should you consider? How can you make sure it’s as ironclad as possible?
We also hear Charles’s take on the strangest request that he’s ever received from a client.
This episode is recorded in the Bulthaup Holland Park showroom. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood and Alfi Media production.
