Ask important questions when you meet with your interior designers:
- Can you offer referrals? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who's worked with the designer before.)
- Can I see your design portfolio?
- Always insist on project start and completion dates.
- Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?
- Written agreements protect both parties. Always insist on a contract with signatures.
