When you ask for a quotation a private interior designers, you probably have probably received explanations about how complex the project is, how long it will take, how quality depends on the price, and all this in order to arrive at fairly high prices.
Shouldn’t the price be higher with shorter deadlines compared to a longer ones? How many times have you received an explanation of what exactly you get for the money you will pay in addition to explaining how complicated the project is? Does this mean that for a lower price the quality will be several times lower? Does it mean that when the price is lower there is something wrong and what is that thing?
In this blog we will reveal a some more secrets about the processes that take place and how prices are formed.
Do you need an interior designer?
If you have an idea and you already know what exactly you want, however, you can’t imagine it or want everything to be as it is now with regard to electrical installations, plumbing, kitchen layout, etc., you do not need a designer, but a visualizer or something better, a simple program to create the idea that you are chasing. One of these programs is Sweet Home 3D, Home Design 3D, Homestyler, and if you want even more budget-friendly furnishings, such as Ikea Kitchen Planner.
If you want a complete and full interior project and there are things that you are worried about – you do not have enough time or you want to prevent mistakes when creating a project, this is the moment where you need to consult a specialist. This will save you both nerves and time but also money!

Each point hides different pitfalls, but what are they?
Let’s say you have found a freelance interior designer. From him you will get a pretty high price and an extended time for the completion of the project, but why? Every private interior designer deals with advertising to constantly look for clients, to find ideas for the current project, to prepare the drawings for the project / if he is experienced enough / and eventually to follow the execution of the project. In other words, the first part will take him 2-3 months and the implementation of the project the same amount of time /that is also included into the price, of course/. What if something happens in the personal life of the freelancer designer and something more important comes up?
You have decided to work with a studio that deals with interior design and planning. In this case, you have the opportunity to work with both interior designers and architects. The advantage here is that the project being designed will receive the necessary attention, thoughtfulness to the details and drawings, and a guarantee that the project will then be able to be completed.
What exactly will you pay for?
The interior design is divided into 2 main parts – conceptual design and work project. We would like to be comprehensive enough in this section, so we will write an additional article that will explain everything point by point. You can find the article HERE.
Interior design project with implementation or just a project to guide you?
Each professional interior designer / company has a team or own company with which to execute the projects.
In the recent years, construction has intensified and it is a bit difficult to find quality people who are involved in construction and to find someone to get involved on time with the project. That’s why we at INDORIO have our own team, but also a partner company that offers high quality material on a lower-cost, Casa Interiori.
How much does it cost to hire an interior designer?
An average cost to create an interior project is in the range of 20€ up to 40€. pet sqr m. Freelance designers would argue that a self-respecting designer would work at such a price and ask for a price of over 70€ per sqr. m.
Some designer could say that execution of the project takes a few months, but if the designer also leads the implementation of the project, then they certainly take a commission from there and the price gets really high…
We at Indorio believe that good design should be accessible to everyone. This is why our prices are average for the market, and we offer up to 5 hours included consultation in the price offer if you choose not to execute the project with our partners.
Our advantage here is that we work with 2 companies with which we have worked on numerous projects – our personal company and a foreign one, which guarantees high quality of materials on affordable prices, incomparable with the Bulgarian market. And here it is time to say that the production of the furniture does not take 2 to 3 months like most companies do, but 30 days!
We could continue to write for hours on this specific topic, but almost no one likes to read long articles filled with text only. That is why we at Indorio will be happy to meet you and discuss your project together.
