Why does AAID charge a $250 interior design consultation fee?
Finding the "right" client means ensuring that our clients are as fully committed to their projects as we are.
To avoid defaulting on project deadlines and the desired look and feel of each project AAID charges $250 consultations for fuel costs to be covered between the "consulting phase" of the project along with any samples needed to be provided to clients during the concept phase of design.
Each design project receives a visual presentation for the client that requires billable man hours to produce.
Depending on your level of project you may receive 3D visualization , mood boards , tile and marble and fabric samples which all cost.
Does AAID ever waive their consultation fee for anyone?
Yes, AAID will waive the consultation fee for any client that is prepared to begin their project on the same exact day of consultation. (Yes on occasion it happens)
Interior Design fees:
Upon start date of client's interior design project, one half of the interior design fee is due 24 hours before the agreed start day.
The first half of the interior design fees due is 75% of total amount due.
EX: If your project sums to $5,000.00 75% of $5,000.00 is $3750.00 and is due immediately to begin work on your project.
The second half of the design fee will be due upon completion of first half of design project established by both AAID and client near the end of the project and not at the very end of the project.
Any Interior Design fee amount under $2,000 and up to $2,000 will be paid upfront and in full, no if's and's or but's.
