Ways to Pay a Designer
There are many ways to pay a designer, just as there are many ways a designer can help you create your dream home. Tina is able to work with a variety of budgets and help you with anything from a “quick fix” to a project achieved over months or even years.
- By the Hour
- Through Purchases
By The Hour
Tina can work on an hourly basis, simply charging for the time spent on any given project. An alternate choice is to pay Tina for a one hour design consultation which is $75. She will come to your residence and provide ideas on how to make your house your home, assuring you a more comfortable life style.
When Tina comes out for a design consultation it is important she see your home in an everyday state. Many times people feel embarrassed to have someone see their house when it is not free from clutter. You do not call Tina to come see your home if it is looking great. I come more as a house keeper, one who tidies up and makes your house beautiful again.
Tina can take your ideas to a new level of excitement. She has the resources and knowledge of different uses for products to make your dwelling a reflection of your personality. We don’t all have to have painted walls trimmed in white with sage or earth tones. I like to show you how each room in your home should blend with the total feel but have a different twist so it is not monotonous.
A designer makes a profit on what they sell either by discount purchasing structure or by sales commission. If you are purchasing merchandise through a designer you should not also have to pay by the hour. Usually you will pay the same with a designer as you will working on a project on your own. Tina gets a commission discount because of repeated sales. Therefore, the customer pays the same price point, yet Tina pays less and the difference pays for her fees. Overall Tina can save you time and money by finding better buys on quality merchandise and most of all keeping you from making costly mistakes. She has a litany of stories of how people have wasted money and then come back for help to fix issues with their home.
Tina tells people to buy the best they can afford because prices are always going up and quality suffers more and more every day.

A good interior designer can focus on your taste and needs. Design shouldn’t be achieved through trial and error. It should be achieved with a planned goal.
