Design Fees
Contract Me Out

Oaklyn, NJ

#1 Sep 13, 2010
I have accepted an offer to do some contract Interior Design work for a local Architect (philadelphia). As a residential designer I am unsure what to request for fees for my services since this is different then working directly for a client (homeowner). Because the scope of the work varies greatly, I would like to charge an hourly rate to be sure I'm being compensated for services that could go above and beyond the original design plan. Any suggestions what a designer should charge an architect or design/build company to use her services (to include research, selections, drawings, specifying product, and overseeing installation)? Thank You-

I just recently finished two similar jobs.
I charged a lower than normal hourly rate just to have money until the project was completed plus 10 percent on the backend.

I agree with Crystal. I too would bill hourly and consider lowering my hourly rate due to no client interaction and because of the regular daily scope of the project.
